The Inner Peace Award


Don Charisma Inner Peace Award


Don Charisma sent this one to me this morning! He also added a new badge which includes Yoda on it. Of Course that is going to be the badge I use! How could I not! ( Who Da Man? Yoda Da Man! )

Conditions For Accepting The Award

The only “rule” for the inner peace award is that you write a short piece on why you are accepting it.

Why I’m Accepting The Inner Peace Award

Through My Weighty Story, I have learned one thing, well ok maybe I haven’t LEARNED it, but more like recognized something. You have to be at peace with the person you were and let go of all the resentment and anger that you have toward yourself in order to achieve your goals. In my case, I blamed myself, I blamed others, I blamed the fat, if it could be blamed, I blamed it! I have tried very hard ( and I acknowledge that I am not ALWAYS succeeding), that I have to love myself and life in order to make this journey a success. In many ways, this also flows over into my journey to become a published author. I have to have enough faith and love in myself to believe that it will happen. I just have to keep going. There are always roadblocks along the way, and there will always be haters. We just have to have some thick skin and keep trucking along.

I do think it is also just a little ironic that in the mist of all the stress and CRAZYNESS that is going on in my life right, this award comes across my Reader.  I do have to say though, the last couple of days a couple of MAJOR stress relievers have played out and I’m feeling much better today.

  1. Wow, you’re really reeling in the awards this week…should we expect you to walk a red carpet soon?;) Really like this award and your thoughts about inner peace and self acceptance. I was mad when Sandra Bullock didn’t win the Oscar this year…but this award I can get behind;)

    1. I did reel in the awards this week! 4 of them! I was shocked!!!!!!! I haven’t done all the “acceptances” yet though. I did however change the side bar to take you to a page which will list them call.
      Wordpress did weird things when I went to add them all to the sidebar so did that instead

So whatcha thinking?
