A number of our WordPress colleagues have presented or offered this blog an award. I’m not exactly sure how many, but I do feel sure that it is too many. At least for now.
I have a desire to inspire people to challenge themselves to get more out of themselves and out of life. To have more fun. To make a positive difference in the lives of others and for others. The primary reason for this is my regret for the terrible waste of years for which I am responsible that lingers in my past. If I can inspire one individual to avoid this pain in their own life, it will be worth it.
Sharing the good that others are doing is a way for me to accomplish my objective. So, I share. It’s the others who deserve the accolades. This blog hasn’t been in existence long enough to be so worthy.
I can’t express how sincerely appreciative I am for the thoughtfulness we have received. But here is my challenge, and why I’m embarrassed. I don’t handle this kind of thing very well. I haven’t followed through on the requirements, nor do I anticipate that I will. I’m just not comfortable with it. I’m so sorry to anyone I may have offended. But I’m still very, very, appreciative. Please forgive.
However, I have a solution, one that is acceptable to me, if not the award presenters. For everyone who has offered me (this blog) an award, or does in the future, I will engage in an additional IAOK – Intentional Act Of Kindness. It will be a little something extra on my part that will benefit someone in need, but in your honor.
So I guess I must now go back and count, and start planning. Thank you, everyone.
Tomorrow is promised to no one!
