First I’d like to thank Cee from Cee’s Photography for this weekly get together. Thanks Cee!
For Share Your World, Cee asks 4 questions and we answer them, it’s a nice way to get to know your fellow bloggers. Come join us!
Have your blogging goals changed?
Not really. I started this blog 2 years ago to put my writing out there. That’s what I still do. I needed a place to write stories and see if anyone enjoyed reading them. This blog lets me do it. A really nice bonus to this is that I have ‘met’ some really great people in the blogging community and have become wonderful friends with. It’s nice to be surrounded by good people.
If you were to perform in the circus, what would you do?
I would have to work with the animals some how. I love animals and I want to make sure the animals in a circus were treated right. I don’t really believe in putting animals in cages for the enjoyment of humans, so my circus would be for the small animals that are able to live with people and be happy. No elephants or tigers and such, they should be in their own environment. Maybe dogs, cats, small domesticated, trained animals. They would of course be spoiled rotten. Because that’s just what I do. 🙂
If you could go back and talk to yourself at age 18 what advice would you give yourself? Or if you are younger than 25 what words of wisdom would you like to tell yourself at age 45?
This is a more complicated question than you would think. I could go back and tell my younger self not to marry that Texan. He is bad news. I should have went with my girlfriend and her family and moved to another town when I was invited to join them. Would have saved years of hurt, fear and abuse. But then, my life would have changed so dramatically and I wouldn’t be where I am today or more importantly WHO I am today. So it’s a tough call.
One thing I would tell my younger self for sure though its….smarten up about your health! Eat healthy, don’t ever smoke ( I quit cold turkey 8 years ago), and watch your sugar intake! Don’t ever think that your health is something you will have forever, because if you don’t eat smart, exercise and take care of yourself, you will regret it when you are older.
I would also tell myself when I was younger to never give up your dreams just because someone else says they are foolish. They are YOUR dreams and you should follow them.
What is your favorite comfort snack food?
Well since I can’t have sweets (I’m a diabetic) M & M’s are no longer an option.
So I will go with unsalted Saltine crackers. Sounds weird I know. But I love the taste, nothing on them, well maybe some cheese sometimes, but I can sit and eat saltines and feel comforted by them somehow. I love the crunch and the flavor.
That’s it for this week people. So are your blogging goals the same as when you first started?
