Beautiful Blogger Award


Wow, it’s raining awards this week. And very beautiful awards too. Thanks, Entangledinparadox, for the beautiful blogger award. Love your blog. 🙂

The rules are:

1. Copy the Beautiful Blogger Award logo and place it in your post (as you see here)

2. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.(I already did and again, “thank you so very much once4always”)

3. Tell 7 things about yourself.

4. Nominate 7 other fellow bloggers for their own Beautiful Blogger Award, and comment on their blogs to let them know.

Seven things about myself:

1. Longer I live and more I read and learn, more I feel that “I know that I know nothing”.

2.One of my favourite characters is the Ugly Duckling from the story by Hans Christian Andersen (1805 – 1875) as I often felt like an ‘Ugly Duckling’ in my family when I was a child.

3. I don’t believe in Super Heroes with magic power, but believe in the power of humble and quiet little fellows  who are working very hard to make this world a better place for all of us. We all have magic power and we all can make this world a better place if we want.

4. His holiness the fourteenth Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso is one of my spiritual leaders. Loved reading his book “My Spiritual Journey”.  I found his views on religion and spirituality, material progress and happiness, love and compassion to be very close to my views and beliefs.

5. I believe in life after death – people whom you ever loved live in your heart forever. You can still hear their voices, you can still see their eyes, you can still feel the warmth of their love and share your thoughts with them.

6.I’m a bit socially challenged and totally blind to social status indicators. I’m useless at networking and small ‘social’ talk. I could never keep up with all the celebrity gossip or popular fads of any kind (e.g. fashion, songs, books, movies, games etc.). I could never understand a desire to get a cool car, phone or another cool object to impress others. Even more – if you show me socially ‘cool’ and ‘uncool’ objects, I’ll never tell them apart. I usually feel like an alien at big gatherings and parties and therefore prefer meeting with people one on one in a quite environment where it is possible to relax and have a good heart-to-heart talk without hiding under the ‘social’ masks. As the result, I have only a few friends, but those friends are very dear to me.

7. When I was a child, I struggled to understand a joke. When someone would tell me a joke, I used to ask timidly: “Is that a joke?” with a big smile on my face and tears in my eyes to make sure that it least one of these responses matched the expected one. Later on friends were always impressed with my ability to totally believe in all sorts of nonsense as long as it was told to me by a trusted friend. Even if my brain was telling me their stories could not be true, my total trust in my friends was suppressing brain’s logic. As the result my friends played all sorts of tricks on me over the years and still remember those tricks with laughter.

    I can totaly relate to your comments about jokes and how you believed in nonsense making you vulnerable. Nicely said.

      Thanks for your comment, Jane. I still get ‘caught’ sometimes in believing in nonsense, but only by very trusted friends in a good-humoured way. Learned with age to be much more cautious and critical with others, I guess. 🙂
