Life Is Good, Indeed

I am not worthy. This morning I woke up, made some coffee and began to catch up on some bloggers that I  had fallen behind on and to my surprise, I was awarded this snazzy little ditty.

The awesomely kind and naughty Mynx made mention of me on her blog, Dribble. I am truly thankful for those of you that take a little time out of your day to read about me and the meaningless babble that oozes from my simple little mind. Thank you Mynx. If you have not jumped over to Mynx's blog's yet, I would kindly ask that you do. If racy is your speed, look no further than Mynx's Secret Pleasures. I will warn you now. you may have the sudden urge to play pocket pool. For those of you who are not into Billiards, Mynx's Dribble may be a little more your speed. I implore you to check them both out. She is wonderful people.

With great power, comes great responsibility, so, as the rules state, I must link back to the award giver, answer some questions, which I will do next, and lastly, I forward this award on to others that I deem worthy.

1. If you blog anonymously, are you happy doing this? If you aren't anonymous, do you wish you started out anonymously, so that you could be anonymous now?

I like for people to know who it is that they are dealing with so I would not choose to be anonymous. I feel that anonymity has very little place in this world. I used to be very reclusive but time is short. I do not want to remain faceless any longer.

2. Describe an incident that shows your inner stubborn side. 

This one I will leave for my wife. She will enjoy answering this. Oh Beth !!!!!!! I need your assistance.

3. What do you see when you really look at yourself in the mirror?

Good question. Hard answer. I see a broken man mostly. I see someone who spent a good deal of his life (wanting) when everything I needed was right in front of me. I see a man who struggles with his identity, his faith and his disorder.

4. What is your favourite summer cold drink?

Iced Mocha

5. When you take time for yourself, what do you do?

I like to golf, wrench on a car, lie in bed listening to music.

6. Is there something that you still want to accomplish in your life?

There are many things that I want to accomplish, but the one that sticks out has to do with my daughter.
I simply want to accomplish at making her feel loved, making her feel important. 

7. When you attended school, were you the class clown, the class overachiever, the shy person or always ditching?

I would say that I was a shy person in elementary and high school. Class clown in college.

8. If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment in your life, what would you see?

Holding my little girl for the first time. 

9. Is it easy for you to share your true self in you blog, or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people and events?

I would rather let readers know about me. Whatever they want to know. I am an open book.

10. If you had the choice to sit down and read a book or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?

Normally, I would rather read a book, but lately, I have been feeling the need to talk to cuz. He is the closest thing that I have to a brother.

And finally, I need to reward a few other bloggers who I dig and think are worthy. So, here they are in no particular order.

1. Abigail at Dobler's Crisis

2. Dani Q at OBSESSED

3. Krissy at Talkative Taurus

So, in summary, thank you, you naughty, naughty, naughty Mynx. I am humbled yet again by your generosity.

You are very welcome. You make me smile:)

Drake Sigar said...

You should guest blog on Secret Pleasures, maybe do something with Pigtails. :P

Dani-Q said...

Oh my god! Thank you so much!

Drake, I will be the first to admit, I would ruin Secret Pleasures. I don't think that I could pull a believable sex post off.

Dani-Q, you are welcome so much. I like what your doing. Keep it up.

I really liked your answer for how you look at yourself in the mirror. I think sometimes we don't see all the great stuff that is in front of us until it's too late.

Did I miss something, though? What do you suffer from (if you don't mind answering of course)

And congrats on the award! :)

Hed, I was clinically diagnosed as being Obsessive Compulsive. I am a pure obsessive, meaning I think myself into anxiety attacks, etc. If an unwanted thought surfaces, I feel the need to analyze it and figure out why instead of dropping it like "normal" people do. Over the years I have how to deal with it.

Krissy said...

Congrats on the award, and thanks so much for passing it on to me! That really means a lot. I won't comment on your answers since I have to respond anyway. But by the way, you didn't tell us what SHE said your stubborn self has done. :)

Overthinking Mama said...

Thank you for the award... i have to honestly say i am speechless... i think this is the first time that i have been given an award, and seen my blog button on someone's blog that i really didnt know or "talk" with on a somewhat regular basis. thank you so much for that. :-) its nice to know someone does really read my blog (besides me!)
Thank you again for the award... and I am following you now too. :-)

ib said...

Krissy, do not fret, my wife will be adding her side today sometime, I think. And please, comment away. I like comments, so please, comment away.

Mama, You are welcome. I enjoy your blog very much and read it often. I hope to be more active with comments and the like because I like being friendly, even if it is only cyber friendly.

My goodness, thank you so much for the love! It is very, very much appreciated, and will most definitely be returned - every time I visit your blog, I am blown away again! This:

"Good question. Hard answer. I see a broken man mostly. I see someone who spent a good deal of his life (wanting) when everything I needed was right in front of me. I see a man who struggles with his identity, his faith and his disorder."

That is a tremendous, heartbreaking, very honest answer, and I am in awe of it. Thanks again for being so amazing!

Abigail, you are too kind. Thank you for looking in from time to time. I hope all is well.
