Versatile & Stylish Blogger

A big thanks to Myne Whitman for the versatile and stylish blogger award. I am really flattered.
So back to the awards, the rules are as follows:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.
2. Tell us 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 other bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and let them know that they have won
So 7 things about me
I just found out how much I like to dance and guess what? I'm having a blast (not like I'm the hottest stepper though)
I enjoy reading so much, often not just for the sake of reading but to gather as much information as possible. It so bad that I would read a sign post or anything else for that matter, I almost had an accident once as a result of this :)
Driving is one of my favorite therapies especially when I want to clear my head. I have an especially special time with FL* doing this:) He totally keeps me company and has been blowing my mind with the awesome love He's been showing me;)
I have a thing for speed and I think driving is more than just getting from point A to point B, it really is an art and you would see the beauty when a person that has the knack for it is behind the wheels doing justice to it (like me :D)
I think fashion is anything that looks good on me, what I'm comfortable in and suits the occasion. By the way I still detest high heeled shoes- my theory is, it was invented by a woman hating fiend to make women suffer. Why else don't men have any of those painful "fashion fads"
I have a so vivid imagination that I think even Peter Pan would be envious of. It's kinda what drives me to write, I see the words come alive.
I love smiling, laughing and there are two people that even when I'm angry and close to livid still make me smile till it becomes a bubbling laugh in my stomach.
Ok that's the 7 things about me.
I pass on the honor of the award to
Till my dying day
Making Mrs Mauritz
Before I did
A girl's journey down the aisle
My Life (even if she's been away for too long)
Hajel's Musings
d Unspoken: wRitten
So there you go, you are one of my versatile & stylish folks, yes you, if you are reading this right now, then yes I mean you :)
I'll be back to put up the links. I'm updating from my phone and I'm kinda technically challenged.

Happy 2011- Be Intentional!


I've been hoping to come with a really major post, but I've not been able to get myself to sit long enough to get something really great (read  as perfect) out, and I just woke up today and realized it's TWO weeks into the new year already.
It's not for lack of what to share that I've not been hear but rather because there seems to be so much to say but I cannot quite decide where to start or what is best.
The later part of last year saw me starting out on a path I did not quite expect, it's a good development though (cringe) and some really tough decisions/ discoveries were made but in all I see loads of opportunities and potentials in all of it. As the year progresses, some of those discoveries would be shared.
I have so much to be thankful for already this year, things have not exactly been picture perfect but I've been having the time of my life. 

I have decided to be more intentional about my life. I've been planning to have a hangout with friends for about 4 years now (crazy innit?) and I realize all I've done all along was just talk about it. Most of my friends are used to me saying by now, "we should hook up sometime soon and do something fun" well it has never happened because this DarLyn has been busy running round life.
Always busy but not quite taking time to enjoy anything. 

So chatting with a friend last week, I made my famous close out line again, then caught myself and asked instead if she was free that Saturday, we should go bowling. So we agreed on a suitable date and planned on inviting other friends and I've been calling all the dear people that I've been telling we should hangout to join in the fun, so I am finally making good my words only a couple of years late (batting my eyes lashes with a big grin on).
Enough of my chitchat, I am already having a fun 2011.

Be intentional!
Things don't just happen by chance
even when chance events happen, it can only be made good when some sort of plan is built around it
are you going to sit around waiting for something or someone to make the chance event happen?
Well, I don't know about you, but I'm making things happen for me, I am creating my chance events!

Have an INTENTIONAL 2011!
