I'm a little late at saying thank you

The other day Talei presented to me the Happy 101 award. I'm unsure what 101 stands for exactly, however it must be a good thing if it has cupcakes in the picture. Thank you for choosing me out of your many followers. Now I get to pass this on to four more of you (mwhahaha.)

Semi True Torystellar - Enjoy the cupcake! Your posts are straightforward and that's what I love to read.
C.N. Nevets - You probably write more about writing than any other blogger, but it's not a waste of time - it's truly helpful, thanks.
Shannon Whitney - Who reminds us the truth about passion and being driven.
Misha - Who definitely juggles her life like myself! The works paying off ;-)

Then, Jolene honored me with the Cherry on top award. I really don't understand the love for cupcakes, but life is definitely good - it just takes a lot of patience to get there. Now I will bestow this upon three other bloggers and then as the rules have it for winning this award, I will share what I would change about my past.

Mask - Mostly because each post is full of wit and charm. Plus, I want to know your answer ;-)
Sam - Because she's hilarious...if you didn't know that already!
Botanist - His life is interesting to read about, plus he built a pirate ship. What more could you ask for?

What I would change about my past is how much time I wasted caring about what others felt towards me. I have always been the doormat to people and it wasn't till recently that I have completely thrown my arms, shouting, "I don't care anymore!" I wish it hadn't taken me this long to gain confidence in myself. I do not need to impress anyone. I am who I am and look the way I look. If I wouldn't have cared so much back then, I would have cared about more important things; things I stand for today (like sustainable living!!) I am very grateful for where my life is headed and in the end, things are never too late.


  1. Wow, well said.
    And those are some very deserved awards.

  2. Firstly, Lettuce, many congratulations to you for two well-deserved awards! And, secondly, thank you very much for the honouring me with this award. I am extremely touched :-)

    As for my answer? I will never unmask. Not even for a prestigious blog award ;-)

  3. Congratulations on your awards! And thanks for mine! I'm glad you find my blog helpful!

    I'll post and pass on the award later this week! :)

    And well both about not wasting too much time on worrying about what others think of you *and* the fact that's it never too late to change what you're living for.

  4. Well done and many congratulations on your receiving those awards.
    And well done to those recipients you have passed on the awards too:-)
    Stay inspired, my friend and happy writing.
    With respect, Gary

  5. Congratulations on your awards and your confidence! Well done!

  6. Congratulations Lettuce, and many thanks in return. Hey - who can argue with cupcakes?

  7. Now I'm late saying thank you!!! So Thank you!!! I've been caught up doing training for the past several days so I'm behind on my own blogging as well as blog reading!

    PS - anything with cupcakes on it has to be good.

  8. Wow! Damn I swear everytime I take a little vacation from blogger I miss sooooo much that it seems impossible to catch up! Congratulations on BOTH of your awards Ms. Bigshot! And thank you so very much for mine! I very much appreciate it-you're a doll! xoxo-Sam
