I like to keep up with awards but sometimes I cannot do so. The timing is off somehow. Today the time is fine to do a post that is “late”. Retrograde cycles are excellent for catching up with what seems to be temporarily cast aside. With Mercury, this can apply to writing.
Annesquared is a very cool blogger friend who nominated me back in July 2014. We had an excellent communion when I gifted her with a free telephone reading on one of my blog giveaways. She blogs about being an INTJ and other very interesting, diverse topics. Thank you Anne for recognizing the intuitive healer in me by taking a chance and helping me spread my wings. I am grateful for this award and your support.

SEVEN SAVVY SELF STATEMENTS
1- I adore old buildings and places with plenty of history. I can often sense the character of a place by walking around and taking in the energy.
2- I am told that I have a great sense of humor, especially when I am not being so “serious”. I enjoy irony, word-play, and yes, sarcasm from time to time. Working on letting the sarcasm go.
3- I like walking outside in the Winter when the air is clean and crisp. Love how alive I feel and seeing my breath as I exhale.
4- Room temperature water is my favorite drink, not too cold. I rarely go anywhere without some water.
5- I was born without a gall bladder and was horrified that I lived so long in the dark. Do you wonder if you may be missing an organ or two? One of the reasons this is underreported is that we can live fine without some of them ( lungs, heart, brain are essential) and most people would not know unless they are having particular medical problems. I wonder if my original people are gall bladder less?
6- I am becoming more comfortable looking silly or goofy. This is a real shift for me.
7- I have so many famous friends in my dreams. Once I dreamed I was hanging out with Julia Roberts ( a fellow Scorpio) and offered to do her chart for free. When I wake up it seems odd that I don’t know Julia or Brad Pitt, Mick Jagger, Cameron Diaz. Maybe my parallel self is an entertainer and moves in these circles while awake.
In these very exciting yet confusing times, inspiration can be as necessary as oxygen and water. Physical reality can be so fast paced, contradictory, and overwhelming.
Inspiration can be described as grace with wings.
So in that spirit, let me introduce you to my nominees:
A picture is worth a million words when Cindy takes them.
Renate’s stories are so rich with meaning and depth of soul.
newish blog with such heart ~ adore the exuberance and love for my old college ‘hood.
Karin’s take on spirit is nuanced with layer upon layer of consciousness and truth.
Julie’s love of life and optimism/ truth are splashed all over her blog pages.
Some of these blogs are well established, with tons of readers and “cred”. Others are just beginning to catch fire and take flight.
Mixed metaphor? Oh well..
Needless to say, I walk away feeling understood, enriched, and renewed in a very personal way.
Grace has a way of showing itself to me in such a manner. What about you?
