Last week, out of the blue, I got a message from Carol at adjustingyourfocus, telling me she had nominated my blog for the Awesome Blog Content award! I haven’t been around for very long, but it’s long enough to know that Carol is herself an Awesome blogger, and I’m honored that she thought of me. Go take a peek at Carol’s ABC award page and see what she had to say about herself. She gave some really awesome and well thought out responses in her journey through the alphabet, and is a tough post to follow, so I won’t even try, lol, I’ll just be me and participate in my own unique way – which is the whole point, after all. Thank you Carol for thinking of me, and the opportunity to share a few words. Bless you bunches!
For a little history, the ABC award was originally created by Alyson and David Sheldrake of The Thought Palette. It’s a fun award, because part of its purpose is to get to know one another better, by using the alphabet to say something about ourselves. Words, phrases, paragraphs, whatever suits you. I wasn’t sure what I would come up with, so I just started by writing each letter and listening for a word, and more if it felt right. The answers are short, but each one does say something about me, my way of thinking, my feelings about life. So without further ado, here are my responses…
A is for Alive!
B is for Be still, and know…
C is for Candlelight images dancing in the mind.
D is for Dreams that do come true.
E is for Elsewhere, a special place within.
F is for Feelings, both bad and good.
G is for Giving without expectations.
H is for Healing old wounds.
I is for Intuition, the Inspiration of the mind.
J is for Judee, just judee, just me.
K is for Knowing beyond belief.
L is for Listening to my inner voice.
M is for Music to move the soul.
N is for Now.
O is for Owning who I am.
P is for Pi, an eternal mystery.
Q is for Questions, may there always be more to ask.
R is for Row, Row, Row, your boat, gently down the stream….
S is for Serendipity and sweet Synchronicity.
T is for Tuit, getting a round.
U is for Universe, too huge to Understand.
V is for Veracity, where truth finds itself.
W is for Wishes whispered into the wind.
X is for X-ray vision into the soul.
Y is for Yonder Star.
Z is for Zen.
There you have it, Judee in a nutshell. 🙂
Ah, but there is more to this award – the second part, and probably the easiest and hardest – paying it forward. I have met some astounding people in my short time on this blog, and could already make a long list of people to give this to. Choosing is difficult, but choose I must, so I will choose those who have had the most impact on getting me blogging, creating, writing.
If you are on this list, you may participate, or not. I know some of you may already have received this award, others may not have a place in your blog for such things, and for the rest, I look foreward to reading your personal alphabets with joy. This is just my way of saying thank you for the influence you have had on me in this short time.
In Alphabetical Order (of course)
I’ll be getting in touch with each of you when I have a moment, to let you know. Again, participate or not as the spirit moves you, just know that each of you (and many more) have touched me in some special way. Thank you, and bless you.
