Section 1: Directions for you to accept the Sunshine Award

Personally I don’t like the “nominee” idea, it’s confusing. So, if I’ve awarded you a “Sunshine Award”/”Inner Peace Award” you’ve already won/been awarded the award, you are my awardee.

To accept this award, the awardee must do the following:

  1. Display the Award on your Blog.
  2. Announce your win with a post and thank the Blogger who awarded you.
  3. Present 10 deserving Bloggers with the Award – “who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.”
  4. Link your awardees in the post and let them know of their being awarded with a comment.
  5. Write 10 interesting things about you

Section 1a: Directions for you to accept the “Inner Peace” Award

The only “rule” for the inner peace award is that you write a short piece on why you are accepting it. I would suggest that you forward on to other bloggers who you think would like it, 3-10 up to you:)

Section 2: 10 Interesting things about me

1. Whatever happened to Eddie Murphy that guy used to be funny !

2. I don’t like driving unless I have to, it’s dangerous and tiring.

3. I’m never as Charismatic as I’d like to be

4. I’m happy doing nothing at all

5. I love my long walks by the beach, try and get out for 90 minutes everyday, music pumping it gets my creative juices going

6. When I was a boy I won a competition for making a gold coloured top-hat with a daffodil on top that had a flashing light … true story !

7. Mars bars beats Snickers any day of the week (For brits or googling yanks only!)

8. I’ve done crochet and knitting a little bit when I was a kid.

9. My dad is the best man in the world !

10. When I was a teenager I drank half a bottle of whisky in one go. I was so so sick. I wasn’t able to drink whisky for 10 years after that. These days I don’t drink much, I’m generally happy enough with out it.

Section 2a: Why I am accepting the “Inner Peace” Award

I am accepting the inner peace award, because it was kindly offered, quite a while back. I like to reply to everyone who leaves comments on my blogs, and if someone was thoughtful enough to give me an award then I must accept.

I do my best to inspire positivity in others, and peace is a big part of this. Everything starts from within, so inner peace is where all peace that we create comes from. I know that I cannot always be at peace inside and this is OK too.

    The above link will take you to the story on Totally Inspired Mind that has the jpg image of The Versatile Blogger Award that I awarded YOU Don!

    I just got up my acceptance of The Sunshine Award and The Inner Peace Awards, thanks to you.

    God bless and just remember this: AT Chapman U. when I was in their Voluntary Leadership program there are 3 kinds of power: Money, Clout and Intelligence…those you can get or learn but the 4th type of POWER is CHARISMA and you have to be born with it. You and I were!

    1. Thanks Paulette, very kind of you to think of me:)

      True power for me is making a difference and having a voice that’s listened to. I guess that maybe why the first award I accepted was the “I am part of the WordPress family” award, props to Shaun Gibson on that one, and I made a new friend (Shaun) in accepting it. He is indeed a very charismatic blogger.

      As for being Charismatic, I do my best:) And contrary to popular belief, I believe people can learn to be Charismatic, which I may eventually write about on my blog. In the meantime I do my best to lead by example, with my friends like you Paulette, who are a constant source of inspiration.

      I’ll do my acceptance as soon as I can.

      Warm Regards

      Don Charisma

  2. Looks like you’re hitting the jackpot with awards Don, because I nominated you for The Inventive Blogger Award too and made a post about us both sharing the Sunshine & Inner Peace awards….each being awarded the same awards
    All you need to do is write 15 interesting things about yourself and award 15 other fellow bloggers the award.
    You can save the jpg file of the award on my site Totally Inspired Mind.
    Congrats Don and thanks for the recognition and support.

    1. LOL just clearing the backlog, and an experiment in blogging awards, learnt a lot yesterday 🙂

      I couldn’t find you post for Inventive Blogger, perhaps you can send me the link?

      My pleasure, it was actually hardest to select for the last two awards because inner peace and sunshine are high up on my values list!

      Speak soon



  3. I truly appreciate that you have included my blog on this list of lovely and beautiful bloggers. My heart is filled with gratitude. Much peace, love and blessings. Tammy
