And the winner is…Me!

liebsterblogaward-2

I am normally not a fan of chain letters masked as online awards, but I am a fan of spreading the love!  With that, I am excited to have been nominated for a Liebster Award by two of my fellow bloggers, Spirit Grind and HeyBetterMe!  I thank you both for believing I am pretty amazing!

Here are the rules for those who are nominated and want to participate in the Liebster award process:

  • Post the award on your blog
  • Thank the blogger who presented the award to you and link back to their blog
  • Answer the 11 questions given to you by the person that nominated you
  • Nominate 11 bloggers who have less than 500 followers
  • Create 11 questions for your nominees to answer
  • Notify your nominees by posting your nomination on their blog

Questions from HeyBetterMe:

  1. Where are you from?

I am from the Buckeye State, Ohio.

  1. If you could live anywhere, where would you live?

Montreal is definitely a place I would love to live one day.  It is diverse, culturally rich, and full of the arts.  It’s also not too far from New York (where I also love) and Ohio so I can get back home quickly if I needed to.

  1. What is something you have always wanted to do?

I have always wanted to learn how to play the guitar.  I’ve always admired women who play the guitar, it’s so bad a$$!  I took lessons about 5 years ago but stopped when I got too busy and never returned to learning.  One day I know I’ll continue my lessons though and hopefully become the next Bibi McGill!

  1. What do you do to relieve stress?

I do a ton of things to relieve stress!  Exercising and reading a good book always get’s my mind off of whatever I’m stressing about.  Journaling has also helped me tremendously.  When I write down my thoughts, it literally feels like they are leaving my brain and traveling to the paper.  It is very relieving.  Laughter is also the best medicine!

  1. Where are you presently?

Do you mean where am I physically located or where is my perspective in life?  Okay, I think I read too much into that sentence…anyways, I’m at a conference for work but not paying attention at all while I write these answers!  I’m so bad sometimesJ

  1. What accomplishment are you most proud of?

I am most proud of being right where I am in life at this very moment!  I have been through some tough situations and experienced very difficult times, but I am still grateful, compassionate towards others, open, and optimistic about my future.  With that kind of mindset, success, ease, and joy will come naturally.  To me, that is a tremendous accomplishment!

  1. What is something you cannot do without?

I cannot do without my imaginative spirit, some daily creative endeavor, and a strong belief in myself and the impossible.  I’m lost without those things.

  1. What is your favorite childhood memory.

When I was younger, every weekend, my Aunt would take me and my cousins roller-skating.  I loved roller-skating and having fun with my cousins.  Also, my parents were very religious so it was the only time I could listen to “worldly” music!

  1. What is your favorite book/movie?

My favorite book is a tie between two books.  Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neal Hurston was the first book that I fell in love with and still enjoy reading to this day. Also, Hair Story: Untangling the Roots of Black Hair in America by Ayana Byrd and Lori Tharps, is my hair Bible!

10. Sugar or Salt?

Definitely sugar, I have a huge sweet tooth!

11.  In one sentence, talk about your blog.

Honoring Our HAIRitage is a place where I discuss our history and politics and connect them to today’s Natural Hair Movement!

 

Questions from Spirit Grind:

  1. At the end of your life, what would you like others to know about you?  How would you like to be remembered?

This is a tough question!  My hope is that I am remembered for bringing positivity and compassion to the world and others.  I would like to use my blog as a platform for adding a fresh new perspective to the Natural Hair Movement and be respected for creating content that reveals the truth about our story as women of color.  I want everyone who experiences my blog to have a renewed sense of self-love and awareness.
