Stanalei Fletcher: The Reality Award

Yesterday, I was nominated for the Reality Award by my fellow blogger and new friend, Mae Clair. Mae’s blog portrays the best of blogging out there. She’s consistent, informative, and showcases her writing talents with humor and generosity. Her blogs offer some of the most amazing insight into mythology I’ve ever come across. 

Thanks for nominating me, Mae. I hope I get this right. This award requires baring a bit more of myself that I usually share. The rules are as follows:

Visit the blog of the person who nominated you, thank them, and acknowledge them on your blog: Thank you Mae!

Answer the questions listed below and nominate up to 20 bloggers whom you feel deserve recognition. Visit their blog and let them know.

Cut and paste the award to your wall.

Now for the questions:

If you could change one thing, what would you change?
I wouldn’t change anything. So if I could change something, it would be “change”. I don’t care for change. It’s disruptive. I tend to scramble until I find equilibrium in what I’m doing and what goes on around me. My husband tells me all the time… “It’s all what we get used to.”

I realize without change, there isn’t growth. And I’m more for growth than I am for resisting change.

If you could repeat an age, what would it be?
I would repeat my 40th year, but only with the insights that I have today. Otherwise, what would be the point of going back and redoing anything in my past? That said, what I constantly remind myself is that I have it pretty good at my age and if I want my good health and positive outlook to continue into the next decade, then I must take care of myself now. If I’d have thought like that at 40, I wouldn’t be trying to undo some of my bad habits now.

What is the one thing that really scares you?
You know when you get that feeling that you forgotten something? Something important? That feeling scares me. My heart pounds, my skin crawls and I’m beating myself up over something that, if I’d just paid closer attention, wouldn’t have put me in a panic.

If you could be someone else for the day, who would it be?
Tom Clancy. I want to know what that guy knows…

And now for my nominations:

Mary Martinez
Jude Bown
Annie Adams
Judy Baker
Sandy Rowland

Oh, and while I have your attention, Imperfect Dream~Perfect Reality goes free today, 2/21 through Tuesday, 2/26.  Link to Amazon here.

  1. Thanks for participating in the award, Stanalei, and for such lovely comments about my blog! 🙂 I loved your answer about change. Very insightful. And Tom Clancy…wouldn’t that be a blast, LOL? I’d love to channel his knowledge.

    Thanks also for the news about IMPERFECT DREAM-PERFECT REALITY. I just hopped over to Amazon and snatched up a copy!

  2. Thanks for the nomination, Stan! I’ll get right on this.
    I shared your book.You are a font of wisdom. I doubt you forget much and leave things undone often. That’s my experience of you. Congrats on all your success and writing.

  3. Thanks Stanalei, how fun. I love the idea of a REALITY AWARD.
    Hey, I too would return to my 40s, if I knew what I know today, also, if my kids were as old as they are today!
