Best Moment Award
The Best Moments Award
Awarding the people who live in the moment,
The noble who write and capture the best in life,
The bold who reminded us what really mattered –
Savoring the experience of quality time.
I have been recently nominated for this award by Terry over at http://terry1954.wordpress.com/2013/02/28/best-moment-award/.
I sat in shocked silence while I tried to sort out why and how I got this 🙂 Then it hit me, our writings, our thoughts, the vibes that we send out, they do affect people. Just the fact that we exist, matters. And even when you are down and depressed and you think that no one else cares, someone comes along and someone cares. Unknown to you, there are at least 2 people in this world who are thinking of you right at this very moment.
I am honored that Terry has chosen me for this award and I am honored to nominate the following people who lift me up, inspire me with their words or just make my life better because they are in it, positively contributing to a better me 🙂
1. Joshunda Sandards over at
Her writing, her journey gave me the courage to try my hand at writing a book. I doubt that I would’ve found the courage to do so otherwise. She’s been a HUGE inspiration.
2. Tara over at
She went on a journey to find the truth of her life and she did. She came out the other side a stronger, better, inspired person, who is now inspiring others to find their authentic self and live life true to their dreams. I love her one law – open your heart to the moment, no matter what is in it. And I have been trying to live my life by the same principle.
3. Aleksandra over at
Why? because she’s my sister from another mother.
Nope, that’s not the reason, but I had you for a moment there, right? with my nepotism? 😉
I love who she is and what she stands for. She’s a sailor, a traveller, a writer and so much more. She’s finding her place in the world and she’s doing so by being completely open to new experiences and new people. Even though we live in two different cultures, it seems that we face many of the same challenges and I admire the way she lives with an open heart, even when it’s broken, she picks up the pieces, gathers her strength and moves on. Now THAT’s courage right there!
4. This list would be incomplete if I don’t mention – Dr. MAK Yuree. Over the past one month, apart from the time that is necessary to be devoted to my work and eating and sleeping, I have spent every single moment that I can find with him, asking questions, listening, learning, writing. About 2 weeks after we began, I had an episode of depression, normally, these last me for a couple of days, sometimes even a week. In his company, it lasted for a day or not even that. He is a guru of mind training and in a couple of hours, he rewired my brain or rather my thinking pattern changed. I woke up the next morning feeling so much more in control and thus so much better. These days I also find myself more easily or rather unconsciously adopting yoga poses in sitting straight and comfortably and engaging in a few minutes of meditation throughout the day, collecting my thoughts, producing more in the same span of time.
To these women and the man who continue to inspire me and make my life better by just being there…. Thank you!
