all week we've been focusing on kindness and karma in our lives. yesterday in her post ashley from the accidental olympian said:
forgive me Grumbles if I have wandered off the path, but I've come to interpret Kindness and Karma Week for myself to be a lot more about finding the happiness in my own life
oh ashley, how right you are. you have not strayed from the path at all. ever heard the phrase, "if mama ain't happy ain't no body happy?"
day one was all about taking control of your fate and changing your mood. let's get back to that.
if you're new here, i don't do contests like most people do contests. for the birthday caption contest lucky miss ashley won two custom mix cd's and a hand-drawn portrait of her rescue pup, oly. go look. plus as a side effect we've embarked on a fun new friendship. now it's your turn. a lucky winner will win a surprise gift from me made by me. i can't tell you what you'll win because it depends on who wins! i promise it won't be a drawing of ashley's dog. (do i promise? muahahahaha.)
this is the thing, people. i can tell you how lovely and strong and brave you are all day long. and i really, really mean it. i believe in what you can do for others and for yourselves. you are incredible. but at a certain point what i say doesn't matter. you have to believe it about yourself.
here's what you have to do to enter, it's very easy and very hard:
leave a comment below telling me one thing you love about yourself.
that's it! and don't forget to leave me some way to contact you.
the winner will be chosen using random.org next friday, May 7th around noon EST, right after jon reminds me what time zone i live in.
there are some ways to score yourself an additional entry/entries:
· tweet about the contest. don't forget to put @thegrumbles or else i won't
see it and it won't count.
· post about the contest on facebook and leave me a note here that you did.
i trust you.
· subscribe to my RSS feed (if you haven't already) and leave me a note
here that you did.
· "like" this blog on facebook (if you haven't already) and leave me a note
here that you did.
· if you participated at all in k and k on your blog/twitter this week you automatically
get one additional entry and anyone who would like to do so through next week
will too. hell, i'll even give one to the feminist breeder so i can score cool points.
you have all week to enter but don't forget! i'm not going to spam twitter and FB too much about this, i think that girl is super annoying and i don't want to be her.
you can do it! and thanks for hanging in there with me all week. here, i'll kick us off:
i think that i have a nice butt. i've always liked it and i'm damned proud!
and i think i'm trustworthy. i take my obligations seriously.
