I am very surprised that I received a nomination by Rising Star for the Sunshine Blogger Award. He is always encouraging and positive just like his words, “We Build Confidence through Inspiration and Motivation”. Not only sharing his experiences, helpful tips but also passionate about inspiring others. Whenever I share comments or read other people’s comments on his posts, I believe he truly cares for everyone’s comments and feedback. He would take the time to give constructive feedback. Someone who is grateful! He pays attention and learns about his followers and viewers. Actually, he just taught me a good lesson that I should check my blog every day because he shared his comment along with the nomination 3 days ago. I am sorry but truly thank you!
In September 2018, I decided to challenge myself to create a blog that shares my thoughts and some of my favourite quotes. I am learning to create quotes or poems as well. Recently, I started to combine my photography with words. Photography is one of my tools to express my thoughts and emotions. Expressing through writing is difficult for me but I do enjoy it. In this lifetime, I believe my lesson is to learn about love. Love shows up in many ways throughout life. Since I started, other people’s blogs help me to learn, to heal and to move forward. I hope I can pay it forward through my blog.
