So grateful to receive the Mystery Blogger Award once more with Gusto

The Mystery Blogger Award 1

Talking about gifts world, I recall already getting this award last year for my birthday, but men when a wonderful guy nominates you for an award and you are top on his list, you could feed 5t’ little lousy ego of yours some right?

So, for your generosity and sincerity in nominating modest me once more for this highly coveted award, I want to heartily thank my inspirational blogger pall Mr G over at Gratitude4Gratitude.

What is the Mystery Blogger Award?

“Mystery Blogger Award” is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.

Three Things You Should Know About Me: Shamefully copied from last year lol but still valid tbt

  1. I decided in May 2011 to speak my truth henceforth regardless of the price – so far so good though it sure costs a lot sometimes;
  2. My boys and my cat keep me going above all else – I hardly can hold down any anger in their presence;
  3. I am a hopeless passionate and romantic girl, sometimes I just don’t wanna get too close to any situation which may warrant my being me

5 questions from G

1 – Was there a turning point in your life? If so when?

Yes there was: Super turning point in my life was when I failed miserably in my attempt to commit suicide back in 2008. I knew there was going to be a way out even if I could not see that way yet.

2 – What’s the most important lesson you’ve learnt?

That the Will of God cannot take me where the Grace of God cannot keep me; that as long as am here, I’ve got to keep living trying my best and inspiring others along the way.

3 – What are you grateful for today?
Today, I am grateful for my breath

4 – Where are you right this second?

I am sleeping, this is a scheduled post so it goes live while I snore – gives me the thrill hahaha

5 – What’s the strangest thing you enjoy?

I enjoy snake meat although I can only recall eating it once when my dad gave me some. To me, it was better than chicken and that is something.

p.s: So dear G, there you go. I am grateful you thought of this old gal. I try my best to do these award acceptance posts in appreciation for the effort taken in nominating me and putting the questions together. Answering them also serve as a review of my life’s troops lol – and who knows what new thing may be in the dark wardrobe hahaha

Enjoy your weekend everyone o



Marie Angele Abanga (simplified to Marie Abanga) aka MAG likes to describe herself as a “Jacqueline of several trades”. She is an everyday woman and mother with a zigzag profile. Let’s give it a try! She is an Activist, an Author, a Coach, a Consultant, a Feminist, a Lawyer, a Lecturer, a Prince 2 Project Manager, a Psychotherapist, a Philanthropist, a minister of the Word of God and...! She just loves to sum it up by saying she is a person of passions and a tale of talents. Her life’s journey has filled over 6 books already and her three musketeers keep her busy at home. MAG is also the founder and CEO of the association Hope for the Abused and Battered, and the Country Director of the Gabriel Bebonbechem Foundation for Epilepsy & Mental wellbeing. The plethora of life's experiences and shenanigans she has lived through and learned from in near 4 decades of existence, have equipped her with such an arsenal to coach, train and motivate just any and everyone. She is so charismatic, dynamic and full of life, going by her designed mantra of 3Ds: Determination; Discipline and Dedication. These sum her+her quest to be the best version of herself and impact others perfectly. She attributes all her wealth of knowledge to her conscientious attendance of both informal and formal school.
