  3. Nominate 11 new bloggers to receive the award and write 11 questions for them.

My 11 questions and answers:

1. Why did you start your blog?

I started my blog as a way to share my journey living with MS and to reach out to others living with MS.

2. What do you enjoy most about blogging?

I enjoy being able to freely express myself. Both the struggles and the positive aspects of living with a chronic illness. Most of all I enjoy the relationships and support that has developed through blogging.

3. What hobbies and interests do you have? Besides blogging!

My biggest passion when it comes to hobbies is cooking and creating my own healthy recipes. Gardening is a big part of that. I also love DIY projects and I started knitting about a year ago.

4. Name one thing you couldn’t live without and why?

My kids.

5. What’s your favourite song/tune and why?

I have so many favorites but this is the one that sticks with me right now. Fighter by Gym Class Heroes.

6. Who/What motivates you to be your best self?

I think everyone around me as well as myself motivates me to be my best self. I have always believed that people come into our lives for a reason. Everyone has something to offer and we can learn so much about ourselves through others.

7. Do you make time for self-care? If so explain more……

Yes. In my case it might not be the same as what some would expect. It is a must for me so that I can keep fighting. For me this often means finding quiet time and just letting myself be.

8. If you could be anyone else (dead/alive) who would you be and why?

I wouldn’t want to be anyone but myself.

9. What is your favourite food?

Pad Thai

10. If you could make one change to the world what would it be?

That everyone would just get along. Stop judging. Instead accept and celebrate everyone’s differences.

11. What are your goals for 2018?

I have some blogging goals but I’m not ready to share them just yet. 🙂

  1. Congrats on the award! I appreciate the focus on self-care, in fact I just did a #ForgivingFridays blog today on listening to my body and letting go of pushing myself ( I broke my toe, which is the catalyst 🙂 ). I LOVE that you wrote that you wouldn’t want to be anyone else but you, Shannon. That is amazing and so self-honoring. Blessings, Debbie
