I’ve been nominated by Gayatri Bagayatkar of, How to Teach a Difficult Child, for the Golden Bloggerz Award. I am humbled by the nomination by Gayarti. I started following How to Teach a Difficult Child some time ago, and, well, did so, because I went through many difficulties as a child and youth, and have been through many difficulties as a parent parenting children and youth today.
I find Gayatri’s site very informational, educational, and highly inspirational. If you’ve not checked it out, please do so.

Three Things About Me
- I believe in creating contexts where people have the access they need to development, inspiration, and transformation. I live by these three concepts; they are interwoven throughout my personal and professional life.
- Working to increase access to higher education for everyone, especially populations that have been historically denied access to higher education in the United States is something that I work on daily. Everyone should have the access they need to knowledge.
- Leadership and Spirituality are important concepts and practices; and, they are much more interconnected that some might imagine. In fact, they are really one. Through my articles and poems my main goal is to increase access to connection and knowledge. It is important for everyone to feel connected, and to also have access to the knowledge they need to develop, inspire, and transform their lives.
My Answers to Questions from Gayatri
- What is your passion and how did you pursue it ?
- I am passionate about creating contexts that facilitate and foster change. I pursue change everyday. It’s a part of who I am as a human being. All iterations of myself have been interested in creating change. And, now I get to do so across multiple contexts, which is such a joy.
- What is it about life that you would share from your experience to keep others motivated and going?
- There was a time when I knew that all creative potential and future possibilities already lived within me, just like they do for you, and everyone else. Then, I forgot for a moment that lasted over 20 years. Yes, a long moment. However, awake again, I am here as an example that no matter what happens in your life, you can create the change you want to see and experience in your life. You can. It is not always easy, yet, really, it’s not supposed to be. Take one step today. One tomorrow. And, keep doing that.
- How has blogging changed you or your life?
- All of YOU lovely and inspirational people have changed my life. I love the blogging community, and each of you. I feel blessed everyday to have met, and get to continually connect with, such wonderful people. I’ve been welcomed with open arms, and for that I will always be eternally grateful. I appreciate each of you.
- If you were to switch off all your devices for an entire day how would you spend the day?
- In meditation and communion with Nature.
- Do you believe in your inner strength to be the change you want to see ?
- Yes! Without a doubt. Everything we need is already within us. In fact, the whole universe lives within us. It’s just how it works. When we understand and are connected to ourselves, well, then, anything and everything is possible. This is a truth I believe in and practice each day.
All of YOU! Really, I choose not to select only 10 bloggers. There are many different reasons why I find each of your sites inspirational; thus, you are all inspirational to me.
Questions for Nominees
If you choose to post, and even if you don’t, please feel free to share in the comments section, here are my questions.
- What inspires you?
- How do you use that inspiration as a blogger?
- What is your favorite thing about blogging?
I don’t think about my posts in terms of favorites, as each blog (article, poem, reflection, etc.) has its own place in my heart. Each post is a piece of me in some way, so they are all my favorite. Even my very first blog, which was, coincidentally just about a year ago. Okay, here are three recent posts.
I would like to thank Gayatri Bagayatkar, of How to Teach a Difficult Child, again for the nomination. Thank you.
I’d also like to thank each of you for being, well, exactly who you are. Just as you are right now, in this moment. Exactly. I’ve met the most amazing people over the past year, each of you, and I am excited about the years to come. Thank you.
Be well, my friends.
