The awesome blogs edition

So, lucky me! I was awarded the Awe-Summ!!!! award by the lovely Yvonne from Safe Space and I must list 7 things about myself which make me Awesome. Thank you so much Yvonne, that is so sweet. Needless to say, I love the Safe Space blog.

Item! This has brought up some stuff for me! Interesting. Of course I could easily identify the top 7 awesome things about my favourite ... say 100 people or so. But identifying them for myself. Well, that feels a little uncomfortable!

Apparently it is perfectly appropriate that the clients I see should love and accept themselves unconditionally ... and I of course believe I should too ... but talking about it? To others? In public???

Really happy about the bit where I talk about seven blogs that I like. Having been meaning to do that anyway. Perhaps I'll do that first (whilst taking deep breaths).

The Fluent Self - I really like Havi's blog ... she's a life coach specialising in - wait for it -destuckification!! and always has some great wisdom to share and is really courageous and open about her 'stuff'. Love her writing style and general wackiness. If you write a blog, you might like this post she wrote about finding your 'voice'. I just found it last week. Helpful!

The Art of Non-Conformity - if you've ever thought about how fab it would be to quit your job and travel for a living, visit Chris' blog. He also has these awesome free products that you should download immediately: 279 days to overnight success and the Brief Guide to World Domination. The thing I like about Chris is that he is so amazingly honest and ethical. Like he creates a product to sell and then gives you about ten reasons why it might not be right for you and why you shouldn't buy it. But he still makes a living out if this blogging thing, so clearly he's doing something right :)

Jesse's Mess - totally gorgeous and creative, Jess shares some of her lovely art on here. A woman of many talents, she's a great Kinesiologist too.

Auric Fields - Amanda is my Kinesiologist! And she's awesome, clearly, since I've been seeing her for about four years. Sometimes I think I should try another Kinesiologist just for research purposes. But I never get around to it. I think you should be the client you want to attract. And I do, yay.

Vibrant Living Wellness - Kristen is another Kinesiologist. We're twitter friends! She's writing a fab series about her chakra journey at the moment.

Monday Project - cute idea! Creative musings from friends based in Sydney and Melbourne who work on a project a month and invite others to join in.

Zen Habits - read by about a gallion people, always something to inspire.

Well. That was fun! Ok, so let's do this thing.

  1. I am fab at taking action.
  2. I'm sooo happy that I've passed through that depression stuff that plagued me during my teens and twenties. I'm good at growing and learning about myself.
  3. I care for myself. I am gentle with myself. That might not sound huge but after years of criticising and judging myself, it is a big thing.
  4. I'm a caring friend and girlfriend.
  5. I like writing. And I'm happy with the blogging thing. I'm glad that I write my blog even though I'm soooo busy!!!
  6. I am supportive of others.
  7. I'm good at working with people who are anxious and stressed and stuck on stuff. I'm an expert on that! And I think it's what I'm meant to do :)

Below are the rules and guidelines to the Awe-summm award:

* List 7 things that make you Awe-Summm and then pass the award on to 7 bloggers you love.

* Make sure to tag your recipients and let them know they have won!

* And finally link back to the blogger that tagged you.


  1. Thanks for the comments here! And for giving us the Awe-summ award. We'll have to decide who does it -- I guess we both should!

    And good on you for listing the seven things.

  2. As your sister, I think I can add an extra No. 8 to your Awe-summ list.
    No. 8 - You have a genuine and honest energy. You're a wonderful, enthusiastic and kind person to be around. You're a fabulous sister, I'm very lucky. xx

  3. Oh Kerry aren't you the sweetest! You deserve many an award. xx
