Ahem…My acceptance speech

“Promise me you’ll always remember: 
You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, 
and smarter than you think. Christopher Robin to Pooh
 A. A. Milne ( 1882-1956)

In the interest of being truthful I have to tell you that for the past two days, I am going through a bit of a challenging phase. Lately my inner dialog is all about questioning my writing and photographing abilities. I am putting myself down and doing a very good job of it. 

A timely surprise however was waiting for me yesterday afternoon when I read that I got The Versatile Blogger Award from Karen at Simply Inspired. 
The rules that go along with accepting The Versatile Blogger Award are as follows:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
2. Tell 7 things about yourself.
3. Pay it forward and award the Versatile Blogger to your recently discovered new bloggers.

…Thank the person who gave you the award

I thank you, Karen for making me feel like a little girl yesterday, the kind of little girl that squeals in delight after receiving something she did not expect 🙂

…Tell 7 things about myself
I discovered last year I am this type of personality
Most of my days are still spend daydreaming 
I have a really hard time meditating, can’t seem to quiet down enough
I grew up in the country side in South Western France 
Blogging has given me an amazing insight into my own mind
Writing, taking photographs is what my heart really wants to be doing for a living 
I still consider myself in the growing up stage of my life even if I am 48 years old 😉

…Paying it forward to my recently discovered blogs
Gine from Les Images Du Jour
Madelyn from Persisting Stars

Did I tell you I was looking for a sign as to whether I should go on…
I guess I got it 😉

Granted, I could have written a bit more about myself but as it is I feel very self-conscious, I hope you understand
