And thanks to LauriesNotes I was nominated for a “Sunshine Award” yesterday. It’s the perfect segue into blog 101. Check out her site for some inspiring photos, poetry and musings on life. Thanks, Laurie!

* Please answer the ten questions

I am nominating the following inspiring blogs (among many that I follow and that inspire me on the daily):

Peter D. Mallet Professional advice for the writer and blogger.

Jump for joy Exhilarating photographs of leaps, jumps, skips and hops all for the happiness of it. Quotes, too.

sense of sensibility Recipes, psychology and ways to stay fit.

Cast Light Choosing light and love. Inspiring photos, quotes and musings.

CultFit A little of this and a little of that. Fitting fitness into real-life.

These are the 10 questions that go with the award:

1. What inspired you to start blogging?

I hear so many people on the daily talking about not having enough time, energy or money to do what they really want to do. Simplifying life and creating space for what we really want is a lifestyle. I love sharing, connecting with other artistic and thoughtful folks and combining my love of mental, spiritual, emotional and physical health into one platform. Behavioral health is a major focus in this blog as we cannot change any aspect of our health without changing our behaviors or actions. Actions, not words, take us closer to our goals and dreams.

2. How did you come up with a name for your blog?

Enjoy means to embody Joy. Joy is my middle name. That’s it, quite simply.

3. What is your favorite blog to read?

There are so many! I am currently uber-interested in Raw Milk Marathon. Check it out for great tips on health, fitness, home and garden. I’m also enjoying the principle-based and always inspiring Mustard Seed Budget.

4. Tell me about your dream job.

I have it. My job allows me to work closely with people, help them to grow in their personal goals, manage their healthcare and focus on healthy habits and behaviors. My job also gives me time and flexibility in my schedule to write a blog, have hobbies I enjoy, keep my communications degree in good use and allows me to help support my husband in his career goals as well. But, I will say my dreams right now are to pursue a Masters program in Behavior Analysis and/or Mental health and grow my writing.

5. Is your glass half-full or half-empty?

My cup is over-flowing!

6. If you could go anywhere for a week’s vacation, where would you go?

My husband and I want to save up money to return to Costa Rica. We’ve both been there separately, but never together. I left much of my heart in Costa Rica. I lived there for a year in 2009 and returned there in 2012 for a visit.

7. What food can you absolutely not eat?

Corned beef.

8. Dark chocolate or milk chocolate?

Dark chocolate with sea salt, please.

9. How much time do you spend blogging?

Lately, on the daily. Maybe an hour or two per day.

10. Do you watch TV? If so, what are your favorite shows?

I’m a big fan of transformation reality TV. I enjoy The Biggest Loser and Chris Powell’s Extreme Makeover Weight-loss Edition. I’m also a sucker for this season of The Bachelor. It’s kind of like the modern-day courtship ritual.
