Hi there Wonderful Listeners!
Well, things are certainly taking a different route this time around for an award post. While I had no obligations to make a post about this, I’m going to anyway because I felt it was the thing to do in my heart.
Recently, I was awarded with Warrior Child Award.
I had never heard of this award before so I went ahead and looked it up. And I found a wonderful surprise waiting for me. 🙂
There is actually a nice little history behind this award. In fact, I love this award especially because it is so unique. Nothing like the Liebster award (which I am grateful to have bestowed upon me so don’t get the wrong idea.)
This award comes from the community of the Mental Health Writer’s Guild, which is an amazing community I should add! And it’s actually an award that is much like an award given out in the world of entertainment. You just give it to someone who really deserves it, no strings attached.
I was honestly excited that I didn’t have to do anything for this award. No questions, no nominations, no nothing! That’s a relief when it feels like you’ve been accepting awards left and right. (I’m not flaunting, it just feels like a lot of work to fully accept an award!)
But anyway, the award is nice just because of how it came to be. Generated out of love and empathy, it is bestowed upon those who show the resilience of a warrior and yet the gentleness of a child. And it is not handed out lightly. In fact, only the members of the guild may hand out this award so you have to be extra special to receive it!
That makes this award so amazing. When you receive it, you genuinely, God-givingly, deserve it. And how can one say no to such an award? How can one group this award with every other? They can’t. I can’t. That’s why I’m recognizing this beautiful award. That’s why it deserves a post for itself! I proudly accept this award, as a badge of honor!
I can say that I am a warrior, and a child all at the same time. All wrapped up in one beautiful package. And you know what? This is the first award that I feel something strong with. I feel an emotional connection to it. So I am incredibly grateful to have this award!
I hope more awards like this are out there in the blogging community. I hope I run into them. Let an award mean something more! I’m not down-playing awards but awards are less exciting when everyone has the same one… That’s just my opinion.
Now, allow me to close out this short and sweet post by thanking Memee for choosing me to receive it. Seriously, thank you so much! You had many choices but you chose me and that says something! Thank you.
Well, if you’re looking for more information on the award, click on the links above. Otherwise, the child in me is going to close out this post now. Until next time, cheers!
