But what exactly is the Liebster Award?

“Liebster” is a German word meaning beloved or dearest.  In the world wide web of bloggers, the Liebster Award is a form of recognition given by bloggers to other new bloggers for enjoying or valuing their work. It’s a warm and fuzzy way to highlight, credit and encourage favourite new up and coming blogs within our writing community.

My warm and fuzzy vibes are all in action. The last thing I anticipated in starting this blog was any kind of award. Particularly less than a month after its conception.

Once nominated, a blogger is asked to:

Hello April!

Hello Everyone, another month is here! Every new month is a new chance to be happy, make memories and draw up new plans.

April is here! This is a vital celebration month such as December is with Christmas.

What is in for us this month?

With schools closed, this is the time of the year, we get to celebrate Easter. This is not restricted by religion or faith, but everyone gets to do something out of the norm. The Easter holiday is an important season, especially for Christians. They commemorate the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The celebration begins on Good Friday and ends on Easter Monday. The celebrations normally include church attendance.

The season is also celebrated with a symbol of eggs ‘Easter eggs’. The Easter eggs are said to symbolize the empty tomb that was left behind when Jesus rose from the dead. This Easter egg symbol has been attributed to other pagan practices.

For the others, they opt to go out of their way and help the vulnerable or less fortunate in the society. This may be part of the organization you work or school you go to or a group of friend(s) initiative.

Others go out for Easter related events such as Easter egg hunts. These events such as Easter egg hunt or Easter painting enable people to reconnect and have fun.

In addition to Easter eggs, Easter bunnies are also part of the Easter celebrations. These are exciting especially for kids.  At times it involves children baking goods -like cookies and other pastries shaped like bunnies.

May your last months’ failures be your successes this month.

Much Love💜

A Dose of Goodness

Anything that anyone can do, I can do it too.

Nothing in this world is impossible. You are beyond the impossible. What has been done earlier, can be done better. There is always room for improvement. Look at the evolution of the electric bulb and other innovations done in the 19th century and even the 18th century. People have improved on them and change the world. That which has not been done is waiting to be done or discover by someone else. Why not do it yourself? Take the leap of faith and do it.
What is hindering you from your success is you. Every is an opportunity but what makes the difference is what you get or make of it.

Reach out and Grasp the opportunity.

Namaste.
