Moonlightened Way has just been awarded The Candle Lighter Award for lighting hope in the blogosphere. I’m so tickled and touched I don’t really know where to begin.
First, I want to thank Arindam for presenting me with this award. Please visit his blog Being Arandam… and get to know him if you already haven’t. He too was a recipient and after reading his blog, you’ll know why. He writes straight from the heart with an honesty and freshness that illuminates the word inspiration. I can only hope I’m as deserving of this award as he is.
What is The Candle Lighter Award?
The Candle Lighter Award was created by blog author Kate Kresse. Kate states:
“I love to write, I love to talk, I love to uplift people when I can. I am a woman in love with life. I am a wife, mom, tutor, writer, and I am a perennial optimist.”
Part of her uplifting of others was the creation of this award. Please visit her blog Believe Anyway. You’ll find amazing things there.
The only rules for this award are that it’s given to those bloggers who contribute to the hope and inspiration of others and that it be passed to other deserving bloggers who do the same. I will also be sharing the award with others. You’ll be updated here when I do.
Receiving this Candle means more to me than I think Arindam could possibly know. It’s been a life long journey and goal to reach out and inspire others, but being an introverted person made it difficult. The internet has been my answer. Here I can comfortably express myself and reach out to others without the usual anxiety introverts feel when attention is turned towards them.
It was only recently that I began this blog. It’s my first attempt at blogging. I’ve felt a little clumsy but this Candle is lighting my way to continue to fulfill it’s meaning by joining the ranks of its recipients in shining the light of hope and inspiration into the future. Thank you again, Arindam.
