They are an eclectic group and each offers a unique perspective and information. I enjoy them!

Answers to Shamim:

1. What’s one of the most helpful tips you can offer, whether it’s about motivation, living as an expat, or about life in general? Live in presence, in the light of gratitude and grace.

2. What’s one positive thing about my blog and one thing I can improve on? So many great things about your blog! But I the first that comes to mind is your writing voice. Your personality is so strong and consistent throughout your site. Improve on? I don’t know…maybe change your calendar to something else more personal?

3. Have you ever been caught in an emergency before? If so, what happened? If not, what’s something funny or awkward that’s happened to you? Emergency: a week after giving birth to my daugher, I bled profusely due to a blood clot. I almost died. I was brought to San Francisco Emergency and all the patients waiting to be seen as I was hurriedly carried in said out loud, “Wow, she’s really pale.” They removed the clot and gave me blood and I was fine.

4. What motivates you to wake up the hour you wake up and get through the day? I wake up at 5am to work out to Jillian Michaels workouts. It makes me feel strong and alert all day.

5. If you were given the option to choose one country in the world to live in, which would it be? Hmmm. Hard to say. Country? I love my country, despite our current administration. I’d love to live in South Korea for a year, but I wouldn’t want to live there permanently. I think maybe England.   🙂

My Questions to My Nominees:

  1. Have you had a bad habit or vice? Have you been able to kick it and if so, how? Do you currently have a bad habit you need to break? Why?
  2. What is the greatest thing about your life?
  3. What is the worst thing that has ever happened to you and how did you overcome it?
  4. What’s your favorite dessert?
  5. What are you reading right now?

Thank you all! I love my WordPress community.

  1. Congratulations on your award and I am honoured that you nominated me. Thank you very much, it is really appreciated. Since my blog isn’t the traditional one and I just did it to send out Bible verses, instead of texting them out to family and friends I really try to dedicate it to God, His word, poems that He inspires and I do occasionally reblog Biblical blog post. I am more than happy to answer any questions here in your comments, which is what most people who nominate me for awards let me do. That way I can keep His blog, well His 🙂 I hope you understand because I am truly honoured that you would even consider me. It is humbling. God Bless you 🙂


    1. As an educator, writer and human being, I am a staunch advocate of allowing people to do things “their way.” Please respond to the questions as you see fit – here or there – or anywhere! I enjoy reading your posts.
