An Award; I hope I'm deserving~


This from Munir at Focus: "I offer this "Award" to some awesome people. Every one is good in their own way. Some of us write what people like to read, some of us write about celebs and national sports and what is going on in the political world, but some people are so open that I sometimes wonder as to why they are not journalists? Or are they?"

Goodness, no, I'm not a journalist by any stretch of the imagination, although at one time when I had taken a journalism class from Mr. Wilkerson in high school, I thought about it.

However, I do write from the heart. It's the only way I know how to express the thoughts and feelings inside my head which is why I suppose my blog is entitled 'My Thoughtful Spot'.

As far as the open-ness I convey, what do I have to hide? Each circumstance and each encounter I've incurred in my life may be able to help another human and isn't that why we are here on this earth? To help our fellow man?

So I offer the raw emotions. I give candid accounts of my life. I present what is in my heart and soul and may it inspire another to look at their world in a different light or perhaps it offers hope...that is my prayer~

...and thanks to Munir for this gift!

Congratulations!

When I was younger, I wanted to hide all my "flaws" and short-comings, but I think maturity teaches us that none of us is perfect or has the perfect life, that we're all "flawed" in our own ways.

Now, like you, I think what's to hide? Life is messy, can be painful, frustrating, absurd, joy-full...might as well let it all hang out and share the human experience in its full awful glory.

Don't ever doubt that you aren't deserving--As one of your followers, I think you are!!!!

You are very deserving. I enjoy your blog and the honesty portrayed in your posts. Keep on going!

I admire your candor. I sometimes don't write when I'm in a bad spot or in transition. Something about wanting to appear as though I have it all together. What a delusional idea!

I think you have miss judged yourself. I find your writing skills very good. At least, you write from your heart and mean what you say. I am not very good at it either. I just keep blogging anyway.
