Is more than just the best policy for me, it is a way of life.

I am a very blunt person, as some of you know lol. I rather hurt from the truth than be happy over a lie.

But I digress. It is a gloomy day here, rainy and muggy and bleh. I was sitting here kind of bummed because I had to close the house back up yesterday and turn the air back on. So I was perusing my comments on the entry I posted yesterday, ( Thanks to everyone by the way ) and Mel from over at From Clutter To Shine left me a comment saying she had left me something over on her blog.

This is what I found:

Suddenly my day got a lot sunnier, This award means a lot to me on a lot of levels. Sharing some of the things I have shared here have taken up all the brutal honesty and courage I have in me, and I was scared of putting it all out there for the world to see, because you know how judgmental people are. But then I realized that it does not matter. All the people who love me know all these things about me already, and I draw strength and security from that. If outsiders do not understand or look down on me, that is ok as well. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. It is more important to me to be fully honest as I can be with people than to be the most popular chick around lol.

So thank you again Mel, for this wonderful honor, I am so appreciative in so many ways!

There was no obligation to pass this on to anyone, but I feel the need to do so, because there are a few blogs that I read that lay it all out there on the line. The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. They may have already gotten awards, and maybe even this one as well, but I want to let them know that I enjoy them and am glad they post with such honestly.

Rae at Life: A Journey Worth Taking
Rayden at Rayden's Rants
Lyon at The Wandering Hearth ( My new personal favorite )
Bridgett at Doog and B Boo + Two
Rowan at Candles and Wicks ( Another personal new favorite )

I think that sums it up for now. Thanks Mel, again, and thank you to those that I nominated for being so open and unafraid to let it all out!

*Please note there is NO obligation to pass this along, I just wanted to share the love after reflecting on what this award means to me.

Oh Bella!
Thank you so much. This means a lot to me too.

And I don't even know how it happened, but I wasn't even following your blog! WTF? LOL
I promise, I thought I was. I definitely have some catching up to do.

Now I feel like a real turd. Ugghhh.

Anyway, I've enjoyed getting to know you in Jupiter's group and on Facebook. I think you're beautiful and one of the nicest people I've found on-line.

Thank you again for this wonderful award. :D

OMG thank you hunny for sharing mine. I only believe in writing with a pure honest heart, not fluff.
That has gotten me into tons of trouble though, cause some people can't handle honesty at all.
I can however better than most can.

Thank you I am going to add a link to your blog as well. We honest bloggers need to stick together.

Holy wow! Thank you so much, Bella. I'm practically speechless and if you know me you know that's basically impossible. roflmao

Yes, we post on our blogs on Sundays and leave the link in the MckLinky so others can visit. You post whatever you like--troubles, triumphs, etc....check out yesterday's MckLinky and links for examples. Be sure you've read all the rules if you're participating in the contest aspect as posting on Sundays (as some other things) is required!
