I'm a few days late, but I'd just like to thank bunpoh for awarding me the Versatile Blogger Award last week. I am always touched and pleased when someone enjoys my blog. Thanks so much, bunpoh!
I have to admit, I'm really not into the award process, aside from acknowledging and thanking the person who nominated my blog. You'll have to excuse me for not following the rules.
I really don't have 15 new blogs I'd like to nominate, but I do suggest my readers look at my blogroll. I've made some interesting discoveries recently like Angry Fat Woman and Screaming Fat Girl. Strange, there seems to be a bit of a trend in the names! And then there's Fifty Fat and Grumpy.
Yes, you can definitely see where my mind's at by the names of some of the blogs I read. I don't necessarily think I look at the world from a negative perspective. However, I'm no longer "young", though I hope to have a number of good years still before me. I no longer believe that I can just will things better. A good attitude is great, but I have been to places in my life where a positive attitude and $1.75 (plus tax) got me a pretty decent cup of coffee. In other words, it's the buck seventy-five that does it, not the attitude.
Mostly, I've moved to a place of not giving up and continuing the fight (no matter what that fight may be--and it's a lot bigger than losing weight) while acknowledging that we are not all dealt the same hand and sometimes our cards just won't allow us to "win" the game. All we can do is fight another day.
OK, now wasn't that an interesting riff on winning an award?
I award the Versatile Blogger Award to you all. Everyone deserves it for putting themselves out there and being brave! Here's bunpoh's post with the rules. Enjoy.
