- Ping-backs are activated and are working well. For instructions on how ping-backs work, in case you weren’t certain, please click here.
- Was the last thing you read digital or print? I am currently reading books on how to write a memoir which I have started to create.
- Are you more an extrovert or introvert? I am an introvert and to the point that real people scare me. Meeting new people gives me extreme anxiety.
- How is your life different from what you imagined as a younger person? When I was a child I had dreams of being an oceanographer and also exploring shipwrecks like the Titanic. (I am afraid to go under water, sharks and scuba diving.) I also planned on 12 children. (Hmm 3 is fine thanks LOL!)
- Do you think about dying? Does death scare you? Why or why not? Death originally scared me terribly. I had terrible dreams and real thoughts about losing someone especially my parents. When my mom passed it wasn’t as bad as I had always thought. I miss her terribly, but life goes on. Now I worry about my 87 year old dad. He had a stroke, is getting dementia and now has to live in a long term care center. Losing him will be harder as he is my last parent, but in many ways I have already lost him due to the brain damage from the stroke and his dementia. I have thought about dying, even tried to commit suicide, but I didn’t really want to die and luckily for me it wasn’t my time.
Additional Gratitude Bonus Question: Who has been the kindest to you in your life? I would say my BFF. She hasn’t been in my life for long. Maybe about 12 years or so, but she would do anything for me and is always there for what I need. She’s in her 70’s whereas I am only 62. I worry about losing her to death as well. Of course everyone must die at some time and some die before being born. I have to just accept my time with her and cherish it.
