Sunshine Award

sunshine-awardSince I just started my blog about one week ago, I am very excited and humbled to receive the Sunshine Award from thatmadmuslimah, an engaging storyteller and creative writer that I follow. (You can check out her stories here!).

My understanding is that the Sunshine Award is given to blogs that inspire you, that have creative content, or blogs that are a ray of sunshine in your day.

This blog really started as a way for me to explore the career and life changes I’m going through at the moment, and if anyone is benefiting from and enjoying the content that’s on here, I’m glad! It looks like my mission is more than accomplished 🙂

There are a few tasks to complete if you accept the award. And here they are:
