Last week has been super exciting in so many ways. It has been great in my blog world too as I’ve been nominated from a couple of you for awards. Most of them I’ve already accepted prior and therefor decided not to go through the entire procedure again. But I figured I might mention you all in this post and answer the questions you asked.

You can find all my original posts to the different nominations in the sidebar at the end of the pages by clicking on the award logo. I thought I might get to it and answer the questions those bloggers asked me in this post here. I hope I did not forget anybody. Thank you all for your nominations. I really appreciate it!

So here are the questions I’ve been asked:

What inspired you to start blogging? The writing. I wanted to start writing again. This blog helped me get back into it and I really enjoy it. It is actually so much more now than just the writing, but I guess you don’t realize this at first. It’s this amazing community that you find and build here. The great input you get, the inspiration.

What do your friends and family think about your blogging affairs? The ones that know support me.

What is the one thing you are sure about on this earth and your life? The love for my kids and their love for me.

What motivates you to keep going when you are down? That there is always a next day and that it will always be better. If you read my post “Just Keep Swimming” you know what I believe in. It is truly what I believe in an what I focus on. It will get better and easier. You just have to keep going.

What is the most embarrassing thing you have ever done? Not sure... maybe it was the moment my pants ripped when I got back on my horse in front of those two guys on their mountain bikes… needless to say that the pants ripped right under my butt cheek… they had a good giggle…

How do you handle embarrassment? I guess it depends. If it is funny I laugh… what else can you do…

What color do you see in the dress? Blue and black or white and gold? I ignored that dress and the discussion. Which ever the person likes you to see, I guess. Or whichever I think would be nicest. I haven’t seen the dress…

Do you read at all, if so, name one book which you think would convert a non-reader into a book worm. There are a couple of Paulo Coelho’s books I think can convert a non-reader. I am not really a book worm… I like to read and I tend to pick books from all kind of genres. I like Grisham books, I like Dan Brown’s books, I really like Coelho and I like Marc Levy and I loved to read the ‘Gone Girl’… I usually pick a book up and then read the little excerpt and decide if I want to read more…

What is your favorite movie? I can’t mention one… there are many. I loved ‘Salt on our skin’, ‘Up’, ‘The Shawshank Redemption’, ‘The Green Mile’, ‘Fried Green Tomatoes’, ‘Pursuit Of Happiness’, ‘Brave’, ‘Tangled’… I could go on and on and on…

What is your dream job and have you obtained it yet? Being a writer. Working on it πŸ˜‰ But to be honest, being a SAHM is pretty awesome too. Unfortunately the kids will grow up at one point and then I will have to face a ‘career change’…

On a scale of 1-10 (1 is least, 10 is most), how full do you think you have lived your life so far? I am pretty happy with the way I lived my life so far. I would give it an 8. There is always room to do more, but I hope I have many more years to do it…
