10 Things About Me:
-I’m a former adventurer who now takes it easy as an ex-pat in the Dominican Republic.
-I’m told that I am brave for having moved to a different country not knowing the language or the culture.
-I’m from the Canadian prairies
-I grew up in the city but spent as much time as I could in the country at the farm.
-I was 4 years old when I first sat atop a horse, thus began a great love.
-I studied at U of M, favourites were Geological Sciences and Mathematics.
-I should have studied Environmental Sciences and Marine Biology.
-I worked for the same university for 10 years helping students. Loved the students!
-I love walking the beach but detest sand, go figure <insert sarcastic smile here>
-I’m disabled, though not a visible disability, that limits what I can do but doesn’t define who I am.
Why I am Accepting This Award:
Wao, I am constantly seeking inner peace and it is a continual struggle to do so in our world of external influences. I am indeed humbled to accept this award. Inner peace is reached more often in my life through my writing. It offers me the opportunity of recognizing perspective. Life continually throws you curve balls. My blog is honest and from the heart, and, a little whimsical in the poetry section. It is through the poetry section where my inner peace is achieved. The remainder of my blog is to give awareness of the wonderful country I find myself in, through my eyes 😉
The 10 I’ve nominated give ME inner peace! Love your blogs folks. You inspire!
Carry on and pay it forward!
