I am so honored to be posting on my blog that I was nominated for the Liebster Award here and now as we start into the New Year of 2018. I want to thank http://www.teddythedogtalks.wordpress.com for nominating me and supporting me on my journey. It has definitely been an interesting journey to say the least. Being able to tell my story and know I have supporters on my quest, has brought me more than just a peace of mind. I have unloaded many harbored thoughts and emotions with my blog and it’s because of all of you that I am still here fighting for my ending solution. It is because of my blog and people like you that my books have been more recognized in the public’s eyes and now nominated for the Liebster Award. This is a great start to 2018! Again, I thank all of you!
Here are my answers to the questions I’ve been asked by http://www.teddythedogtalks.com:
What is the purpose of your blog? The purpose of my blog is to make people aware that trauma exists in many different forms. Learning coping skills to deal with trauma is a key to ones success in overcoming their past thought process.
What are some of your favorite books? This is a very hard question to answer for me. I would say my favorite kind of books are non-fiction. I am fascinated with true stories of who, when, where, and why aspects of a book. One of my favorite books is, The Boston Strangler.
What are some items from your bucket list, if you have one? Interesting question! My bucket list consists of meeting Ellen DeGeneres, going to Disney Land with my family, own a car newer than a 2001 (never have), and making enough money to fix my home to live comfortably. Yes, my home needs a lot of updates.
Who are your role models? My biggest role model is my mother for patience and understanding. Sylvia Plath, who is an Author, writer.
Tell us about your pets, if you have any, and if not, tell us about one of your best friends.
I have 3 dogs. I have one full blooded Italian Mastiff (Babes), a full blooded Boxer (Apollo), and a Mastiff/Boxer mix (Nova). My 3 dogs are my children and I love them just as much as I do anything else I worship in this world.
If you could have one superpower, what would it be? If I had a super power it would be to heal another person. A person that was physically and Mentally in need of healing.
If you could change the world in one way, what would it be? Nothing! I say nothing, because the mistakes of the world is what teaches our lessons. It isn’t the world that needs to change. Our world is beautiful. It’s the people that live in this world that needs to change.
Describe your ideal vacation spot. My ideal vacation spot would be anywhere south, where it’s quiet, peaceful, and warm. Of course it’s winter right now. If asked this question in the summer my answer may be different.
What are some of your favorite inspirational quotes? “When people complain of your complexity, they fail to remember that they made fun of your simplicity.” ― Michael Bassey Johnson
Never Underestimate the Underestimated!
If you could go back to school, what would be some things you wish you had learned but didn’t? Although I am in college now for my BA Degree in Criminal Justice and have my Associates Degree in Psychology. Going back in time I wish I had learned more on technology, when my mind retained more and regularly. I was more into books and friends than computers and such.
