toast of music city

Help Us Win!!!

toast2016Every year for the past 5 years I have participated in the Toast of Music City People’s Choice Awards here in the Greater Nashville Area. With the help of all of you, I was blessed enough to win for Best Blog and Best Visual Artist for each of those 5 years. This year I have removed my nomination to make way for someone new to win.

I do have a request tho…  I have joined a new company this year and it is the MOST AMAZING place I have ever worked in my life. The amount of positive and supportive energy here is through the roof. I have never been a part of a company that does so much to lift everyone up as I have here at RE/MAX Elite. Happy tears flow because this is truly the best work environment ever!

I’m asking that you help us win this year… it’s no longer about me.. it’s about all of the wonderful people here who walk in the door with positive energy, supportive mindsets and loving hearts.

Special Announcement and the Weekend Forecast

Spirit shows me that the energy can be a bit much…. and this weekend could feel a bit out of balance. Grounding, meditation and cleansing your space will come in handy to regain your balance. Spirit also reminds us that the full moon is near so emotions and the energy will be intense. I also want to take a moment to thank everyone who voted in the Toast of Music City Awards – the results were last night!!! GREAT BIG SMILES!

Many Blessings,

The Invisible

WP_20140925_007Invisible things have more to them than most things we see in the world.

You can see a hug, but the important part is feeling it.

You can see a two people meet for the first time, but what is important is the exchange of energy between them.

You can see a mother with her child, but the bond of love that can only be felt between them is everything.

You can see someone win at something they have been working toward for a long time, but the realization of success in that person is something they’ll always remember.

It’s not the things in life you can see, but the things you experience, the things you feel with your heart and soul, the things in life the effect your spirit.

Take another look at the world around you …  this time though, forget what you see and take in what you feel.

Many Blessings,
ravensig

Toast Wins and a Thank You

I am beyond honored to have won again this year for Best Blog and Best Visual Artist in The Toast of Music City. I had convinced myself that I may have won for blog but was certain that I didn’t win for Artist this year. I was sitting there at the awards ceremony waiting for my categories to come up and first came Best Blog, which since I had been interviewed by the Tennessean for it I was certain I had won and I did 🙂  …. and then the Artist category came up and I waited to hear my name called .. 3rd place .. wasn’t me.. I thought “Oh I made it for 2nd” … 2nd place was called .. it wasn’t me.. OMG OMG OMG.. The I heard my name called out fir first place .. I almost cried I was so happy and what a wonderful surprise!

You guys encourage me and keep me creating and keep me writing. You all are the absolute Best! I love you all!

Thank you everyone.. I really could not have done it without all of you .. this win isn’t just for me.. I share it with each and everyone one of you … it was a group effort and I am truly honored that you all took the time to vote and make this happen 🙂

This award will hang on my wall and every time I look at it I will think about all of you out there who participated and made this happen for me. It brings me great honor and great joy to know that so many of you took the time to cast your votes. I really don’t know what else to say but Thank You Thank You Thank You!

Many Blessings,
Raventalker (doin my happy Raven dance!)

Best Blog

Best Local Artist (Visual)


It’s all about who you know….

“It’s all about who you know….” How many times have you heard that phrase?

Well, it’s true!

In so many instances it really is about who you know…. some of the best breaks, opportunities, deals.. etc.. come from people you know or are connected to in some way.

This year I won 1st place for Best Visual Artist and Best Blog because of who I know… yep .. that’s right .. because of who I know!

But, it’s not exactly what you think…. Let me explain.

The people I know come from all walks of life.. most everyday folks just like me. All of us doing our best to make our way in this world.

They may or may not be the most politically influential, they may or may not be the highest in command at what they do, they may or may not be the wealthiest  (as far as monetary value goes), they may or may not have much power in this world … but they are by far the most caring, dedicated, hard working, dependable, friendliest and kind hearted people that I know!

It is because of these people, standing by me throughout the voting process that I was able to win 1st place.

The thing is …. the award and acknowledgement is great .. but what’s even greater is that I have enough of these people on my side… who cared enough about me to cast their votes daily for an entire month..  who despite my constant and annoying voting reminders .. still stood by me and together we ruled the Toast of Music City 2011!!

It is indeed  “who you know”  and in this case I am proud and honored to know so many wonderful, caring folks!

Who you know doesn’t always mean you have to know the wealthiest, most powerful people…  you just have to know the ones who truly care about others.

Thank you to everyone who voted for me this year… and most of all thank you all for your friendship, support and for being who you are!

I’m so glad I know the best of the best! The Cream of the Crop! Love You All!

Many Blessings,
Raventalker
