About jenmotivates12

I am a very outgoing, loving, caring, motivated, mother, writer, and so much more. I started this blog to motivate and share my thoughts and writings. I also wanted to make awareness of health issues along with staying positive about health and other topics. I wanted to see if anyone would even read my posts and/or follow my blog. My second goal is to take this blog to the next level. I want to start a business and be a motivational speaker for any situation. I want to have sessions that can cater to businesses, single parents, team building, couples, divorces or widowed, teens, medical issues, I think you see what I'm saying. I want to write short books that can enlighten, empower, motivate, encourage, teach, and help. Basically, I want to make a difference in others lives and help people see how the impossible can become possible with enough hard work and dedication.

  1. Hi Jen! I want to very heartily congratulate you on your award. This is lovely indeed. Thank you for nominating me. It’s great encouragement to me. I accept it with all my heart. I hope you wouldn’t mind that I cannot answer the questions. Doing awards is one of my greatest difficulties in blogging. Have a great New Year.

  2. Hi Jen. Thank you so much for the Award nomination. It is so very kind of you to think about me and my blog when giving out your nominations. Despite the fact that I decided to go ‘award free’ earlier this year, I really do appreciate it whenever anybody nominates me for an award. They are a great idea and one I had lots of fun with. They certainly put me in contact with lots of other brilliant bloggers.

    Congratulations on your award and a Happy New Year to you and your family.
