“SUNSHINE BLOGGER AWARD” NOMINEES AND MY ANSWERS

January 27, 2020

We Build Confidence through Inspiration & Motivation

I have been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Oblivious Gods_Sharing Knowledge.
I was so happily surprised when I read the nomination, mainly because his blog is one of the blogs I like the best! You should go check it out. She writes about her select topics in a precise and her own style. Still, her smooth and pleasant way of writing, guides us to find our own way to happiness and inspiration, so if you feel lonely any time, just visit Oblivious Gods and explore this blog, I’m pretty sure you will find something unique over there.

The sunshine blogger award is not an official award, it’s just as important because it really reflects the good impact we can have on other people’s lives. It is necessary for the motivation and inspiration of our younger generation and fresh Bloggers.

Yesterday was the International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

In my opinion, it should be an everyday acknowledgement and remembrance to be kinder, certainly more tolerant and respectful.

We all bear challenges daily, all of us in different manners and many visibly so.

As a commuter and a people watcher, it pains me to see the lack of tolerance towards others. My pet peeve? Taking a parking bay reserved for the physically challenged. The young man yesterday morning, was callously thoughtless as he snuck into the bay before a lady. Chivalry aside, he was oblivious to his actions. I’m not given to road rage but I was seething. I can only imagine how the lady felt hobbling around with the aid of a stick after finally securing another parking spot.

Yesterday evening, I was devastated to see a video doing the rounds of two men fighting for a parking space…

I updated the piece for the Elephant Journal.
Last week they published it on their site.
Below is the updated version that they published.
Thank you for reading!

The seven-year anniversary of my wife Shelly’s traumatic brain injury (TBI) is fast-approaching.

Her life was forever changed in a split second on a cold day in January of 2013.

A freak accident happened within our home. A homemade bottle of ginger ale was taken from the refrigerator to the kitchen sink to be poured out. Shelly was busy and didn’t pour it out right away.

As it sat on the counter for a few days, it went from cold to warm. The ingredients of…
