I deeply and truly need to express my gratitude to idealize blog for awarding me with The Phoenix Award, without knowing that the Phoenix itself holds such a soft close space in my heart. The post chosen for this award is perfect for this time of my life since I’ve been feeling oh so weak and helpless, questioning my every choice both past and present.
A little about the award taken from idealize blog:
The Phoenix award
In Greek mythology, the phoenix was a long–lived bird that cyclically regenerated or was reborn.
Associated with the Sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor. According to some sources, the phoenix dies in a show of flames and combustion, although there are other sources that claim that the legendary bird dies and simply decomposes before being born again.
This is the impression of regeneration I get after reading posts from other bloggers out there. Some people have that ability to give back a stolen smile and mend a broken heart through their art. This is exactly what I would like to recognise and award today.
Those Inspirers, lovers, menders, life-giving and reviving bloggers.
Those who enable others to be Phoenix. Reborn from any situation that killed them but were helped to get through by you.
So for the rules:
In the hope of preserving the authenticity of this award, only one blogger is to be awarded by the recipient who forwards it to his/her next Phoenix. (Let’s keep this chain moving while rewarding the best please).
Awarding is done by presenting the blogger and post extract considered as a Phoenix via a post with a link to the phoenix post. Explain why this post is your Phoenix. Notify the lucky blogger.
5 random questions can be asked to the awardee.
Please remember to appreciate the award and the blogger who thought of you for this award.
Display your award for all to see and be proud to call yourself a phoenix.
Mention the creator of the award and please don’t let the chain die out.
It is so hard to pick just one blog out of the many I read every day. Yet I have to award the blogger who, throughout this painful year, has kept my spirits going and helped me to break the chain of abuse I have been in for so long. Someone who has believed in me and reached out to me to help me in my darkest times. Someone who has helped me to be reborn.
Secret angel I have to say during my darkest days seeing your posts has been the light I needed to get through. You have helped me more than you will ever know and by presenting you with this award I hope it shows you the appreciation I have for your expose. So thank you dear friend.
Now pass along. 💜
