Jean at Transform Stress into Personal Power has nominated me for a Kreativ Blogger Award. As part of this award I need to say six things which I enjoy and my six favourite bloggers. This is hard, so I’m excluding the ones I nominated last week as making a contribution.

Jean also has another blog called Cheerful Monk – happiness as a spiritual practise. You will find a link to it in my blogroll. I recommend both.

Six things I enjoy.

Dosai from Khamadenu. A dosai is a kind of pancake – these ones made using fermented chick pea flour. From Khamadenu (in Newtown, Sydney, Australia) they are only about $8AU and are enough for a meal. (The ones made with wheat flour aren’t as good.) They come with various fillings – cheese, onion and mushroom is my favourite – and four accompaniments.

Reading murder mysteries.

Long, hot baths.

Going for a walk in the evenings with my partner.

Qi gong and tai chi.

Good sleep.

Six of my favourite blogs.

Change Therapy by Isabella Mori. I enjoy her openness and willingness to examine her experience. Isabella works as a psychotherapist but her blog ranges far and wide. You will find a link to her on my blogroll.

Maria Gajewshi’s blog Never the Same River Twice continues to provide consistently good posts on change. She has recently done a series on changes that stick – it is well worth reading all of it.

Paul Piotrowski’s blog How To Make Money Doing What You Love is a topic dear to my heart. Paul also writes well, with a very practical bent and is a genuinely open and approachable person.

Robert’s blog Reason-4-smile is a very down-to-earth and practical self-improvement blog. He has just celebrated his first year of blogging, so drop by and say hi.

Johnathon writes a great personal development blog called Illuminated Mind. He covers a wide range of topics and usually investigates each one in depth. These are posts that reward thinking about.

Finally I must include Smack Dab in the Middle by “Miss Smack”. I enjoy the quality of Miss Smack’s writing and her cheekiness and perkiness. She blogs about pretty much any aspect of her life. (This includes sex, so if you visit you may strike a post that is definitely for adults only. There are only a few of these but they are there.)

My world is a better place because these blogs are in it. I think they are all well worth a visit.
