Advent Calendar – Day 3

In the spirit of Christmas and the Advent Calendar that has been revamped and re-purposed in myriad ways, I have decided to do one of another sort.  Instead of taking one chocolate per day (or wine or whatever goodie is in vogue) or adding one item into a box to donate for a good cause (a very good thing, indeed) I have chosen to send a little love to my favourite blogs.

Hello, hello, my Readers!

Day 3:  Awakening to Awareness

I cannot remember how I came to this particular blog.  Suggestion?  Saw a comment I liked on another blog then checked him out?  Seriously, I cannot for the life of me remember.  But that is neither here nor there as I did find Eric Tonningsen’s wonderful blog and must include it.  He, too, took time to email me to find out how I was doing.  This is a busy guy.  He’s a coach, has a podcast, is a professional speaker, writer… and he took time to email me?  I never take these things for granted.  He is not shy to tell me to write my “Dale” posts as he calls them and not just participate in Friday Fictioneers – which I was doing at one time.  I was not overly inspired to write anything else at that time and he encouraged me to continue to put myself out there.  Great coach, eh?

His blog is full of insightful, thought-provoking and positive words. He believes in looking for the good, in doing our best and improving our circumstances.

He has been on a sabbatical of sorts and I can’t wait for him to return full-time (if he does; I hope he does).  He did pop in, though, for a few posts here and there, the last time being November 3rd, the day before the midterm elections – and I so loved what he shared, that I shared it with a few friends, too!  The gremlins at WordPress had decided to have me unfollow him and one day, he left a comment on one of my posts, which made me go see what he was up to.  Imagine my surprise at finding out he had been writing but I was getting no notifications.  Bad gremlins.  All has been rectified.  I am just impatiently waiting for Eric’s voice to chime in again 😉
