Hey Lovely Family!! This week is completely different because I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award! Wondering what it is? Me too! So, to help us both out, I did some digging!
The Sunshine Blogger Award is basically the blogging community recognizing each other for the positivity and joy shown in their blog.

I look forward to sharing more with you all!
Indulge and Enjoy!!

Can you tell everyone what your blog is about and what to expect from your posts?
Beautiful. Passionate. Love. is literally my life. It’s the Journey to Discovering Me! I allow my readers up close and personal access to my life, the good the bad and the ugly. One of the tags I attach to each post is “working on me while sharing with you.” When I decided to make my blog public, my promise (to myself) was not only to be transparent and share my truth with anyone who wanted to read it but also, to learn who Alyshia-Mae is and share her with the world as well.
If you were to ever write an Autobiography, what would the title be and why?
My title would be A light that never Dims. Regardless of the trials I’ve endured I always felt a sense of peace in my soul! I knew, deep down the relationships, people and situations I was faced with would not define me. My anger wouldn’t be able to control me forever. My sadness would have to release its hold on me eventually. There was always a little light of hope, happiness and, a joy that wouldn’t allow me to give up… LOOK AT ME NOW!!
Who inspires you in life?
There isn’t one particular person that inspires me. My inspiration comes from the people who are in similar situations as me and don’t see a way out. The more I thrive and speak my truth, I want them to be able to speak theirs. It’s not easy to tell you all my flaws and mistakes, however, the more I share the more you all continue to read, comment and tell your friends. I know that my story is touching someone and giving them the courage to push through another week. That’s how I know I’m walking in my purpose.
If you had to disappear and start a whole new life, what would you want your new life to look like?
Hmmm… This one is tough. I would want to work for the FBI. Specifically, I would want to be on a task force that focused on rescuing children and, young adults that have been kidnaped and forced into the human sex trafficking industry.
What are your best qualities, according to you?
My ability to see the good in every situation is definitely one of my best quality. I know how to assess situations and see both sides with an unbiased frame of mind. I’m also an amazing judge of character.
If magic was real, what spell would you learn first?
Because of my spiritual beliefs, I wouldn’t learn any spells.
What would the box with all your 2019 goals look like?
Another tough one! I would love to continue expanding my blog!!! I also would love to grow Beautiful. Passionate. Love. into a brand. Apparel is already in the works, however, Working with nonprofits to reach young men and women that just can’t seem to find their value, is the vision I have.
Do you think that Aliens exist?
Yes and No… I don’t believe there are green and grey, long-armed creatures roaming around in spaceships abducting humans. I do however believe there are other being somewhere out there.
If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
I would definitely volunteer more frequently!!! Even start my own nonprofit. I also would finish this book idea I started. Oh! Travel! I would definitely travel a lot more!
What is the first thing you notice about a person?
Body language for sure. Are they nervous? Overly excited? Eager? Can I approach them? I think I pay attention to body language because I love sparking conversation. I don’t like small talk though. So while I’m gathering body language vibes, I’m also registering if I can have an intellectual, in-depth, honest conversation with them.
What is your favorite season and why? Summer and Autumn! I love Summer because where I live the people are just more joyful when the sun is brighter, being honest. While the grass is green and the flowered are colorful in the summer, Autumn is more my color scheme! I love the orange(ish) reds and the beige browns!
