The Aesthete Blogger Award Double Nomination

I have been nominated by two amazing bloggers for the Aesthete Blogger Award, Hundreds & Thousands Of Books and Anna’s Book Nook .

Creator:

The Aesthete Blogger Award was created by Ashmita @ The Fictional Journal.

In Ashimita’s words,
“Before being a blogger, I never knew about such talented people who make such thoughtful content out there. I realized that it’s near impossible to try to fathom the sheer number of such people out there, and I accept it. But this makes me sad because that would mean giving up on beauty of this world, the beauty which lies in her creative people. So, I thought of coming up with this award – “The Aesthete Blogger Award.”

Now, why aesthete? “Aesthete” means a person who is appreciative of, or sensitive to, art and beauty. You might be one if you’ve ever been moved by a work of art or beauty. I think that every creative person out there is an “aesthete” because if you create things, then I believe you must have been moved by someone else’s creations at least once, if not more.

This award is to honor every creative person, irrespective of their number of followers and views. Because, as long as you create, that is all that matters. This award is for those bloggers who put an insane amount of thought in each of their posts and for those who spread creativity like wildfire!

Here are the rules:-

  • Use the official logo/graphic of the award and display it on your blog.
  • List the rules.
  • Show some love to the one who nominated you!
  • Mention the creator (Asmita@ the Fictional Journal) and link it back to the original post.
  • Tell me a something about this world that you admire.
  • What is your favourite form of creativity?
  • Nominate 7 lovely people and notify them by commenting on their posts; spread some love!
  • Ask your nominees 4 questions.
  • Share something you created. (can be anything!)
  • And lastly, just so you know: I LOVE YOUR CREATIONS!

  • Where’s one place you really want to visit? MALDIVES
  • Three books you want to read before you die? BOOKS FROM THE NARNIA AND LORD OF THR RINGS SERIES,
  • What’s one thing you really want to try? Traveling to Russia

Questions From Anna’s Book Nook

  2. Would you rather be able to fly on a dragon, a griffin, a Pegasus, or a Phoenix? (Or choose your own!) Griffin for Gryffindor?

Photo Of The Day: Abundance

Vibrant shades

Of pink and fushia

Blooming on the edge

Of the sidewalk

Gently waving

At me

Calling my name

Till I slow down

And admire

Its abundance.

Quote Of The Week: Be Happy For Others

Have you been in a toxic relationship like a friendship, for example, where your friend is constantly putting you down whenever something good happens to you? Very often, that actually stems from the fact that that person wants to keep the attention to themselves. They do not want to share the stage and have a scarcity mentality.

A scarcity mentality, according to Steve Covey, the author of 7 Habits Of Successful People, is when a person only sees things in terms of winning or losing. There’s only so much attention out there, so if you have some,then there is less for them! Or if you are lucky this time, there is less luck for them out there! Very often, they don’t admit that they think this way, but their sarcasm and criticism gives them away. Putting you down is their way to lift themselves up again.

Jealousy and envy can also come into play. These emotions can blind even the friendliest characters. It is crucial that we continue to remind ourselves that lifting others up means lifting ourselves up too!

Reblog Feature: If I could relive one day it would be…

Today I thought of doing something completely different. I’m curious to know which day you would relive in your life. In the comment section below, …

If I could relive one day it would be…

After reading Growing With Spawn’s response, it took me a long while before I could decide on which day would I want to relive….Finally, I decided on the day I was to travel to Hong Kong with my grandparents at around 5 years old. No parents meant I was free!!! Unfortunately, I didn’t really remember anything about leaving my parents and boarding the plane. I only recalled the moments where I had to go to kindergarten there for awhile…. Everything else were in the photo albums……

What day would you want to relive?

My Second Blog Is Booming

Ever since I began my second blog, the support has been phenomenal!!

As I grow my second blog, I continue to link it to my original blog as there are well over 3000 WordPress subscribers alone over there. It’s unfortunate that we are limited by the amount of media (photos, gifs and such) storage on each site. Hence, my reason to grow to a second one.

Here, I want to thank you to all my loyal and new subscribers for all your support for my humble blog and all my social media platforms! Let us continue to shine a positive and loving light into this dark and silent world.

Writing Challenge: A Letter To My Body

Thank you Ang from Lose Weight With Ang for this writing challenge.

Writing Challenge: A Thank You Letter to My Body

Three Things That I Appreciate About My Body

Dear Body,

I am so sorry for hating you so much for most of my life. Even though I understood that I should not listen to all those who enjoyed making fun of you, calling you fat for fun, even though you were perfectly fit, I still listened and internalized EVERY SINGLE INSULT AND “JOKE”.

Even though I tried to hide my constant sadness because of those “INSENSITIVE JOKES” with a mask of high self esteem, deep down inside, it was a perpetual purgatory.

After so many decades, I am completely fed up and am slowly coming terms with my physical changes as a mom walking towards middle-age.

1) Despite it all, I appreciate that I am still quite flexible (still practicing my almost successful splits).

2) I still love my healthy skin, thick hair and string nails

3) Two hours of continuous k-pop Zumba dancing is no problem for me!

Sometimes, it can be difficult at times to climb out of the tearful abyss, but you can do this. Keep doing what you love and DON’T GIVE A CRAP ABOUT THOSE WHO HURT YOU FOR THEIR PLEASURE!!!

Love,

Chocoviv

P.S. Chocolate continues to be good for you.

Positive Income Affirmations

Image Courtesy of LouiseHay.com

During this time of uncertainty, many of us are feeling lost and down. It’s simpler to just dwell in the fact that we lost our jobs, or got laid off. It hurts the most when I read about many working folks despite working at their job for decades, are let go because of the pandemic.

Many of the small businesses start to appear online as time pass. As a way to adapt and support these small businesses, I start to use my social media platforms to promote them. As I also lost my job of 20 years myself also, I know how it feels. There are times that I worry about the future too. I remember the sadness that flood my mind at that point. However, deep down inside, I believe that I can trust in a higher power. I am a pragmatic person, so I always save for a rainy day as per my mother’s instructions as a child. Then, the government announces that they are giving subsidies to help us.

I am very grateful for all of this. So, despite that fact I am not able to increase my income substantially in monetary ways, I am able to increase my income of “positivity” during this time. By helping out as a volunteer and as a blogger, I am able to make a positive influence online and offline.

Not everything can be bought by money….as per Louise Hay…..Her book reminds me to continue to believe in my positive affirmations, no matter how others criticize me.
