Sunshine Blogger Award 4
Within a week EsmeSalon received two awards at the end of 2019, what a way to end the year.
I wish to thank Nilakshi from MerakiMusings for nominating EsmeSalon for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Please go and read all about Nilakshi and her blog MerakiMusings, as she has so much to offer and I am quite sure that you will be happy to get to know her.
What is the Sunshine Blogger Award?
This award is given by bloggers to fellow bloggers who are creative, positive and inspiring while spreading sunshine to the blogging community.
I have done a post on Blogging is an interesting world! and I reiterate what I wrote that the blogging community is fantastic. This is a place where you get inspired, encouraged and helped in so many ways and continually learn from one another. This is such a wonderful community and the more you give, the more you will receive in return.
It’s great and wonderful to receive any reward, but to me, the biggest reward of all is to connect with my fellow bloggers, showcase them, share their stories and also to learn from them. We each have our niche, some small, some have a variety of areas they cover, but each one is unique and that’s what makes this so rewarding as we learn something new from every blog post we read.
Now, if you do not know me, or wish to know me better, please keep reading!

Nilakshi’s questions I have to answer for this Sunshine Blogger Award 4
How different is your life compared to one year ago?
For starters, I am a year older, hopefully, a tad wiser, much more grey, if that’s possible. Still working full time so nothing much changed in that region.
Have you ever conquered a fear?
What is Fear? Fear is a feeling induced by perceived danger or threat that occurs in certain types of organisms, which causes a change in metabolic and organ functions and ultimately a change in behavior, such as fleeing, hiding, or freezing from perceived traumatic events.
Yes, we all fear something or another, but I wish to quote the following: “I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today.” – William Allen White
How do you practice self-care, or how do you spend 1 hour if you can make for yourself every day?
Things I love to do: Spend Time With Loved Ones; Read Inspiring Quotes; Take A Hot Shower; Take a 10-minute break at work; Eat healthy foods.
Any personal anthem you may have?
“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”
What do you prefer, Kindle or Paperback?
For sure Kindle
One piece of advice to your future self
Be humble and kind to yourself.

Congratulations, Esme! I’m pleased to see you get recognized for your work in the blogging community. #senisal
Hi Natalie, Thank you for your kind words and support here at #senisal and my corner of the blogosphere.
Congratulations Esme! Anyone who knows you sees these qualities in you. Your hard work truly deserves the recognition! Your excellence and dedication is contagious. Enjoy every moment sweet lady!
Dear Kim, Oh wow what a wonderful note to wake up to and receive first thing on this Monday morning and the beginning of the month. Thank you so much for the high praise.
Esme, thank you so much for the nomination. It means a great deal to me!
I’m still new to this community, and still learning how it all works, but I believe I am suppose to now answer these questions.
What is your proudest blogging achievement?
Getting started! Sometimes you can talk yourself out of doing, exactly what you’re meant to be doing.
If your five-year-old self suddenly occupies your body, what would the first thing be that your five-year-old self will do?
She would want to go find my older sister to play with.
Would you rather always be 10 minutes late or always be 20 minutes early?
Definitely 20 min early!
Which fictional character would be the most boring to meet in real life?
Oscar the Grouch or Eeyore. One’s too grouchy and one’s too depressing. They don’t like to have any fun…that would bore me!
You’ve been given a genie lamp – what three wishes are you asking the genie to grant?
-My Autistic son the ability to talk.
-A trip around the world with my family.
-For all of my bills and debt to be completely paid off.
What is the meaning behind your blog name?
It’s simple really. I was a stay at home mom for 11 years, up until Sept 2019, and then I wasn’t. I’m still at home, because I don’t work, but my kids aren’t here during the day anymore. Thus, I’m no longer a stay at home mom.
Do you collect anything and if so what and why?
I don’t collect anything.
Do you write in your books?
What is your most used app on your phone/tablet?
Name a musical instrument/s you play/played.
I don’t play any
What is the dumbest way you’ve been injured?
Falling down the stairs in my home.
Thank you again for this nomination!
Hi, Monica, Thank you for your answers, but you need to create a post similar to my one and share it on your own blog and link back to my post here. Let me know if you need more information or help with it
