Melanie has our Share Your World questions ready to go. I’ve been away from blog questions and I miss them.
1) Do you ever feel more excited about getting the package in the mail, rather than the item that’s in it? I am only excited about packages arriving that are unexpected.
2) What is the difference between your ideal self and your real self? (i.e. what attribute or physical feature would allow you feel the ideal ‘you’?) As far as physical looks are concerned, I am sad about the huge amount of extra weight I am carrying. It is mainly because I know that the weight makes me less healthy. It’s a viscous circle. I was struck down with physical problems that stopped me from my long walks and most physical exercise. That in turn meant more weight piled on. The extra weight bothered me so much that I pacified myself with chocolate. Add a non functioning thyroid and arthritis in more places than I can count, and you have a less than ideal self.
4) Are you ever morally obliged to take action? Under what circumstances? I have to go with a couple of real situations. I once lived in a very old, little back house that backed up to an alley. I was looking out my window and I saw a teenager lighting his car on fire. I called the fire department immediately. My then spouse, said I should not have told the fire department what I saw because the neighbors might come after me. When my daughter was a teen, I was dropping her off at her job at a tanning salon. As I returned to my car, a woman was screaming at a little girl for not doing a good job at her dance recital. I got out of my car and told her to lighten up because she was just a kid. The woman screamed at me to mind my own business. I told her I was writing down her license number. She jumped in her mommy van and took off like a maniac.
Please feel free to share how last week went for you. Bright or not so bright spots?
