I was really pleased and honored to get the Sunshine Blogger Award from Speaking Up For Myself. I like that blog and was so happy for the recognition! Thank you, friend! I’ll answer the questions below and create new ones. I am passing the award along to seven blogs I think are great, and have added sunshine to my life.
Who knows? You might like them too if you haven’t discovered them already.
- What would you change about your life, if given a chance?
- How do you see yourself ten years from now?
- How would you make a difference?
- What would you say to people who reach out to you for help?
- What would your epitaph read?
What would you change about your life, if given a chance?
I would have wanted my younger self to have more drive and ambition, to ask more questions, and really think about what I wanted to do in my life. I wish I could have whispered into the ear of my younger self “get into health care, help people, and don’t forget to write all you can.”
How do you see yourself ten years from now?
I want to have grown greatly in my art and writing. I will have several more novels finished and if blogs are still popular, I hope this one is an old and well grown one. I also hope to have moved up in position at my job so I can save for the future, and possibly own a little land.
How would you make a difference?
I try to make a difference by helping others where I can, usually in service rather than financially. Sometimes I get into trouble doing that because my bosses don’t like it. At the least, I try to offer good advice and support to those who are in need of it. I try to make a difference through writing, too, but anyone can make a difference by just being kind.
What would you say to people who reach out to you for help?
I say “I’ll do what I can,” and I help how I can but I don’t endanger myself by doing so. I’ll take somebody home from work if they need a ride, or give them a shirt if they’re cold, or feed them if they are hungry. I’ll offer support if they’re sad. But I won’t harm my family by doing so. I try to combine compassion with sense.
What would your epitaph read?
Honestly? I don’t know. “She always did her best,” would be nice to see. It’s not really true now but I’d like for it to be.
Thank you for the questions! They were interesting!
