Best Moment Award
Awarding the people who live in the moment,
The noble who write and capture the best in life,
The bold who reminded us what really mattered -
Savoring the experience of quality time.
Misty Rennquist over at http://mistyrennquist.wordpress.com/ has graciously awarded me with the “Best Moment Award” of which I humbly accept. She is a fantastic blogger and I feel honored that she recognized my own blog in the acceptance of her award.
I read so many other blogs and I think to myself – wow, how powerful their words are, how meaningful their topics are, how insightful their conclusions are. Winning this award validates that I, too, have affected someone else with my writing.
First knock: When I was in middle school, I wrote a book of poetry for an english project. My English teacher pulled me aside after school and asked me if I had really written it. Of course I had written it, I was shocked he’d even think to ask me that. He pointed out that the poetry was so good, he just couldn’t believe a 6th grader had written it.
Second knock: My English 101 professor brought me into his office and sat across from me behind his big oak wood desk and said – “You should pursue writing as a career.” The thought in my head was, ‘aww, that’s flattering! But nobody really DOES writing for a CAREER.’
I blew off these praises of my writing, because I didn’t believe in my writing. I didn’t believe in the power of my own words. Now that I’ve been blogging for five years – I’m starting to believe in myself. The acceptance of this award is my third knock. Maybe soon I will start listening.
