In his own words

“Life is this easy, we make it hard x … My name is Shaun. I have a partner and 4 kids. I live in West Midlothian in Scotland, I am in my late 30′s.

I look at the world and challenge everything we are told. Some live in a ground-hog day existence, I couldn’t live like this.  I am a thinker, I love to get my mind round a subject and try and share it with you, the reader, the best I can. The blog could be about myself, or the world around us, or any other subject, I need to share.

I am disabled with Chronic Pain Syndrome, it gets in the way of my life, but not my mind, or my heart. It won’t kill me, but it is a nuisance to say the least. I live for my family, I also challenge myself every day to push myself to be a better person, to think of others, to help others, and more important, smile and be blessed for all I have.

I am not religious, but I respect anyone’s right to think and believe what they may. Freedom of expression and thoughts is important, as is the ability to accept that other people have feelings and opinions. We must allow others opinions to speak to us, otherwise we turn to hate and intolerance.

Love the people in your life, be happy, stay strong and always fight to better yourself. Some hide away and shy from the world, and live alone and die alone. We all are guilty, as if we reach out, others reach back. I reach out with every blog I do, and people do reach back.

Border1I am always happy with an award. It shows respect, appreciation and a level of interest for what you write. So I thank Joe for handing me this award, especially since this one was created for the person that triggered me to go blogging and has become a valued friend and wolfpack member.

Most awards have rules but this award has just two rules

Award it whenever you feel like it to whoever you like for whatever reason 😀

you can’t decline it

I am proud and humbled for receiving yet another award for something I do for such a short period of time. I could not have done this without all of you my readers and followers and thus I thank you as well.

One of the driving motivations to continue blogging is our WordPress Wolfpack. Without my brothers and sisters I might have given up again after a short while so Shaun , Horty, Ed, Patty, Jade and Brian here is a little ode to you guys. I love you all and thank you for allowing me into this wonderful pack

And Joe, thank you for this great award

Nominated in appreciation and as encouragement to Linda from
