    Congratulations on your nomination and thank you for nominating me. I love your answers too. Snickers are one of my favorites as well. I really love your dragon answer. I never really thought about it much, but I guess I can identify with the dragon too.

    🙂 The answers are well-spoken! I am a fan of Snickers (acknowledging my sweet tooth). Here’s a fun fact, I actually studied to be a priest before another path opened for me. Again, another great recommendation. I actually don’t have a bed…I sleep in a hammock. It does wonders for my back issue!

    As for the question, “Is there anything you should’ve let go a long time ago but are still holding onto?”, the answer:

    Truly believing that the world owed me.

    It’s not about, “Letting it go” or “At least it’s water under the bridge”, it’s a scar that only I see. In order for me to “Move on” from it, I have to accept that it happened by reminding myself of it and how I can contribute to the world.

      I don’t read a lot of blogs so I got started so I could make some recommendations!

    I really, really enjoyed reading your answers. Congrats on the award & thank you so much for the nomination. I’m truly honored & your questions are very thought provoking. I’m on a weekend getaway celebrating my birthday, so I will get to this in a few days. Thanks again!

    Thank you very much for sharing my blog. This is an interesting post. I enjoyed reading your answers to the questions.

    I haven’t been following very many blogs lately so I don’t know if I can come up with 11. Some of your questions are hard. Will I lose my status as a curmudgeon if I join a thing called “Sunshine Blogger…?”

    Congratulations! Awesome questions for your nominees!
    What is the strangest thing you believed as a child? Hmmm…I can’t immediately remember…the closest I can think to being weird is believing that if I went to the back of my parent’s wardrobe that I would enter Narnia (when I realised that wasn’t true, I was like NOOOOO!!!!)
