I woke up this morning to find I was nominated for The Liebster Award. This award generally goes out to smaller, newer blogs.
I started up Lost & Found a year ago and never imagined the joy and support it has brought into my life. My intention was to release unwanted feelings until I realized I had gained somewhat of a following. And this goes out to all my readers: thank you so much for appreciating the words I type. To know that I have inspired even one person means the absolute world to me.
I’d like to give an even bigger thank you to Pieces of Bipolar who was gracious enough to include me on her list of nominees for this award. She has shown me support for awhile now and I am so forever grateful for the kind words she has motivated me with. Please check out her blog and show her some love.

5. What is your life mantra?
Any of Paulo Coelho’s quotes would work. The one below sticks out the most:
“Everything tells me that I am about to make a wrong decision, but making mistakes is just a part of life. What does the world want of me? Does it want me to take no risks, to go back to where I came from because I didn’t have the courage to say “yes” to life?” – Paulo Coelho, Eleven Minutes
6. What is your biggest fear in life?
Not living every day to the fullest.
7. If you could have dinner with one person alive or dead, who would it be and why?
My birth mother. I want to know what could’ve been and I want to know her story better and understand everything she has been through.
8. What is one thing you’re proud of?
My ablility to keep going when people doubt what I’m capable of.
9. What is the most beautiful place you’ve seen?
So many places. As of right now, the country side and mountains of Ireland.
10. Name a song that describes your life in a nutshell.
As some of you know, I’m a music junkie. I like everything. Anything. So therefore, there are probably hundreds of songs that would be suitable for this. Each song has something different to offer for each aspect of my life. With that said, I’ll share with you a song that never fails to make me feel better and is definitely in my top 5:
Sanctuary – Paradise Fears
