Sunshine Blogger Award Forth Nomination

   I’m honored to accept this nomination from Lalitha. Thank you for nominating me to this award! Let’s do this!

The Rules

  • Thank to the person that nominated you.
  • Link the post back to them.
  • Display the picture on your post.
  • Answer their questions.
  • Nominate 11 bloggers.
  • Provide 11 questions for your nominees.

The Answers

  1. What prompted you to start writing?

   The lack of logic I had in my mind. My thoughts were bouncing around from one part of my brain to another and this created lots of stress for me because I didn’t chose for it to happen. The writing allows me to express those thoughts in a more coherent way and my mind gets to be free once in a while.

  1. How has your blog changed you as a person?

   Thanks to the topics I approach with it, I can now recognize bits and pieces of theory in real world. I can be more mindful and more present in the situations I’m in because I’m curious to see how the theory I’m writing about manifests in people. Before the blog, I wasn’t able to do it because I wasn’t spending enough time thinking about these things, or at least, not in a structured way.

  1. Assuming you read books, name that one book which you often quote from.

   I do, but I’m not quoting from books too often. The most I quote from podcasts because I spend most of my time with my headsets on listening to insightful and successful people talking with each other on YouTube (for example, Impact Theory and The School of Greatness).

  1. Name that one writer whose works you keep going back to read.

   I wouldn’t say there is a writer I keep going back to read, but I do go back to watch videos with Gary Vaynerchuk because I love how he manages to express his ideas. I also love Jordan B. Peterson.

  1. Assuming you listen to music, what is that one song that you feel was written for you.

   The Cranberries – Zombie

  1. Assuming yet again that you watch movies, name that one movie that made you rethink the way you lived your life.

   In Time (2011)

  1. Who is that one person you love so much that you hate yourself for it? (in other words that one person you cannot imagine life without?)

   I cannot fully understand the main question so I’ll refer to the one in the brackets so I’ll say that I cannot imagine life without my wife. She is my light in this dark world and my strength to keep going forward wherever that forward takes us. She is my everything.

  1. What is your worst fear?

   My main fear is losing the one person I cannot live without. My second fear is to get old and to look back at my life whilst being full of regret.

  1. What motivates you to wake up each day?

   The idea that I have the power to make a change in this world if I keep going forward.

  1. Given a choice, would you hike up a mountain or go diving in the ocean?

   Both, because they are two different experiences we need to have in order to live life the fullest we can.

  1. Happiness or Contentment? Why?

   Contentment because it can create happiness. Even though we might not be able to be happy on a daily basis, we can do whatever we need to do on a daily basis and in the end of the day, we’ll be content which is a positive feeling.

    Thank you for doing this! I’m super happy that I got to know a wee bit more about you from the answers to my questions. Some of your answers are exactly what I expected from you and some of them made me ponder while the rest gave me newer quests to learn about. I’m truly grateful you took time to do this and yes, your questions to your chosen ones are very interesting too! I’m going to be answering them just for myself so I understand myself a bit better. (Remember I mentioned earlier that your questions are like a therapist to me?)
