Blogging Award

I’m not sure if you read the comment posted yesterday by Marci Koski, on my post, Striking Balance Through Tadasana? In it, she nominated me for the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award, in the kindest, most generous way. I am sincerely touched by her gesture. Moreover, I am appreciative that she included me in this wonderful group of readers and bloggers. How great is that--to be a part of a team? I gladly accept the award and want to share information on what it is all about, through today’s two posts. Thanks so much Marci, maven of Fuzzy Undertones.

Here are the rules for accepting this award:
  1. The Nominee of the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award needs to display the logo on his/her post/page and/or sidebar.
  2. To accept, the Nominee must nominate 14 readers they appreciate over a period of 7 days (1 week) – this can be done at any rate during the week. It can be ALL on one day or a few on one day and a few on another day, as I am doing.
  3. The Nominee is required to name his or her Wonderful Team Member Readership Award nominees on a post or on posts during the 7 day (1 week) period.
  4. The Nominee shall make these rules, or amended rules keeping to the spirit of the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award, known to each reader s/he nominates.
  5. The Nominee must finish this sentence and place it somewhere in his/her acceptance post: “A great reader is…”

About the lovely readers and writers that I've nominated:

There are blogs that have an impact on your day. You wake up, perhaps during a lunch break or after work, you can’t wait to see what that blogger has posted. You may then mull over what they've said for quite a while. Somehow, they've reached out and through the blogosphere, popping into your life. You don’t want that engagement to end there, so you formulate a written response, in the form of a comment, and post it to their blog. Blogging is a community activity. Blogging doesn't work if you are all alone. As bloggers we are keen on communication, be it written or visual, through music and sound, meditative and poetic thoughts, humor or the arts and crafts.

Note to Award Nominees

Nominees, it’s up to you whether or not you accept this award because yes, there is a bit of busy work involved. It is not my attention to stress you out. Just the opposite, I want you to know that I think very highly of what you’re doing, appreciate your visits to my blog, and want to share you with my readers. It is totally up to you whether or not you want to accept this award and pay it forward to those you want to spotlight on your blog.  No worries, if you don’t want to accept the award—but please do accept my compliments, recognition of your labor of love and its impact on the blogging community! 

Visitors here will notice I've previously nominated some of these people for the Liebster Award.  Still, you can check out their current posts, since all they blog quite frequently. If you've been nominated by me for two separate awards, I guess that action speaks for itself, in terms of how much I appreciate what you’re doing.


  1. Lovely, lovely!!! Congrats, Stephanie - you totally deserve this award. Thank you for accepting! :D

    1. Congrats to you as well! Thanks so much Marci!

  2. Congrats on your award. Readers are awesome, aren't they? Without readers, we'd just be out here talking to ourselves.

    1. I agree with you totally Stephanie and thanks!!

A to Z Challenge: A Month of African Proverbs

I'm all in, once again.  This is my third year of participating in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. This will be an intense spurt of reading and writing for me, as I'm also editing one book and writing another. I will do my best to stay in, and keep up!

For the month of April (2017) I will be blogging and visiting other blogs. This is a fun and meaningful practice that I've taken on to increase conversations with other readers and bloggers. I am always happy to see newcomers and, whether you comment or not, you are welcome.

A Month of African Proverbs
My 2017 theme is drawn from my soon-to-be released book "Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss." I have a section of my book that contains African Proverbs. I will be spending time on each of those proverbs, exploring their meaning and inspiration regarding losing weight or otherwise transforming yourself.

Here is the definition of the word proverb: (from Latin: proverbium) is a simple and concrete saying…

Live it Like Lucy

So you made a mistake? Now what? Cover it up, fix it or apologize? How about…gasp, accessing the damage, learning what you can and then, moving forward?
I don’t know where you stand with your Judge but mine is ruthless. She looks down her nose at me constantly, worse of all, my Judge is within me, always ready to chirp in, whether I request it or not. I say, as I look forward to this New Year: Judge, you are dismissed! Get lost. Piss off.
I have made a mistake. Is it monumental? No. Will it hurt people? Yes. Most importantly, is it fixable? Yes!
No one likes making mistakes, but they happen. I love the “I Love Lucy Show” (the original, in black and white) because Lucille Ball’s outrageously humorous touch invites us to see mistakes in a funny way. We laugh with her not at her, as she falls into one unexpected dilemma after another. Instead of saying to ourselves: this is terrible; we ‘feel’ in our gut: this is funny!
What if our lives could be the same way? I know it would seem pecul…

2017 Presents a Fresh Start

Oh boy! It's been a while since I've been in this space. Apologies! There are so many things I have to do, want to do, need to do; sometimes blogging has to wait. Other times, like this morning, it calls to me. This morning it said: hey girlfriend, it's blogging time.

I get weird about New Year's. Some years I want to deny it; power through; act like somehow, it didn't happen. This year I am welcoming 2017 by doing my creative rituals, such as writing out intentions, otherwise known as resolutions, and creating a dream board (still in-process).

You've seen me write a lot about the Law of Attraction, and how the Universe is active in our every day lives, listening for our directives. I've seldom seen the Law of Attraction come to life so brilliantly as when I create and post a dream board somewhere in my home. Amazing! Have you created one? What has come from it?

In some ways I think 2016 was a terrible year. I was stuck, looking, waiting, wanting, but...not…
