Liebster Award

Okay, I’m a slacker. I’ve been nominated for this award twice! Thank you to the spectacular James, who I’ve nominated for plenty awards, because I love reading his 365 challenge posts! He’s such a great guy and is so engaging with his blogging audience. Do check out his site. I also would like to thank Renata whose site you should also click on because she’s a strong woman who speaks the absolute truths as well as things she’s learned through her own experiences.[...]

Maybe we are in a situation where we need to think before we speak and that one second of hesitation can make a difference between keeping or losing a relationship. Maybe none of that matters. Don’t hesitate, just say it, just do it; you only live once and it will open doors. No thinking. Just instant choices, instant decisions, deal with the consequences, if any, later. I wonder, do you think even those people have a moment of hesitation?[...]
