I am typically not one for quizzes and surveys. I don’t know why, but I always cringe when someone sends me one to fill out.
But today I thought it might be fun to play a little ‘get to know you’ game! Click to read more…
You guys know a lot about me, but I don’t really know too much about my readers so I thought this would be a fun game. I also think that it is important to reflect on things that are meaningful to us each day.
I’ll go first:
I Am – a girlie girl with a tom boy edge.
I Want – puppies. And a kitten. And the end of animal abuse on all levels.
I Have – a lot of love in my life.
I Wish – for children to grow up in a better world.
I Hate – the feeling of hate itself. It is toxic.
I Fear – not meeting others expectations.
I Hear – Eric clicking on his computer. Sketchie is scratching his post. :D
I Search – on Google. For everything. It has taught me so much. Remember encyclopedias? ha! I Wonder – What is in store for me. What possibilities lay before me and just what I am capable of.
I Regret – hurting loved ones in the past. Why do we hurt the people we love the most?
I Love – people’s quirks. Screw the idea of perfection. Quirks are ‘the good stuff’. When I think about what I love most about people in my life, it is the quirks about them that make them lovable.
I Ache – when I hurt someone I love or let them down. Nothing is worse.
I Always – try my best to help anyone in need and make them laugh at the same time.
I Usually – am happy, but I tend to have a couple days a month where I feel crappy about myself and nothing brings me up.
I Am Not – ever going to be everything you want me to be.
I Dance – and I feel freedom. I occasionally break out the ‘Elaine Dance’.
I Sing – all the time. While baking, at my desk, in the car, while running.
I Never – say never. I used to though. Never brings a closed door, but ‘possibly’ opens it.
I Rarely – wear flat shoes. It’s all about the heel baby!
I Cry – much less than I used to. I cried more in 2008 than I ever have in my life. I don’t feel the need to cry much anymore and that is a wonderful feeling.
I Am Not Always – a healthy eater. Last night I had chips and the other day I ate way too many cookies for my own good.
I Lose – patience with the war.
I’m Confused – about tax, but I hope the course next week helps.
I Need – love and more friends that live close by.
I Should – start a gratitude journal on OSG
I Dream – of being on Oprah (don’t we all?) ;)
I hope– for so many things to change in this world. We complicate things that should be simple. I feel- overwhelmed when I think about everything I want to do.
I appreciate– That I have so many awesome readers to ‘talk’ to each day and share ways of improving our lives one day at a time.
Few things I have learned this year:
- Green Monsters rock
- Listen to my body and it will thank me
- Meanness often is a result of fear
- Coconut oil rocks
- Always follow my dreams and silence the inner negativity
That was FUN!
