Sunshine Award and why I’m a thistle

Sunshine Award and full disclosure on my prickly but mushy characteristics in ten random facts about me 😉

Much gratitude to the incredibly positive and proactive Persia Karema for nominating me for my second Sunshine Award. On her engaging blog, Persia describes how she overcame domestic violence. She is truly an inspiring sister-survivor.

Sunshine AwardTen facts about me:

  1. I still believe in love.
  2. I like conversations to mean something.
  3. If I were a plant, I’d probably be a thistle. Prickly on the outside and soft on the inside.
  4. I think about things, a lot.
  5. My favourite colour is green.
  6. I used to write poetry, but I don’t anymore.
  7. Injustice and bigotry makes me angry.
  8. I am not afraid of difficult things.
  9. Before I fell in love with an abusive man, I thought domestic violence couldn’t happen to me.
  10. I don’t hate anyone, not even the two abusers that almost took everything from me.
