Hey folks. I know this post is titled October Q & A, and that is because I began typing it in October. Publishing, however, did not happen until November due to a move and lack of internet in the new space. I'm still working on my new space, and still without internet in my own apartment, but I still wanted to share this with you. This post is inspired by another post on Liz's blog. Feel free to join in the fun and post your answers on your own blog, or in the comments below.
What’s your favorite way to pass time? What do you enjoy most?
I have an anxious mind. I have FOMO. I have so many things I want to do in my life in general and in every day. Naturally, I have lots of favorite ways to pass my time. I'm one of those lucky ducks who actually enjoys hanging out with her family, so I love when we all get together and eat and play games. I love playing with my nephews. I love holding my baby niece. I love watching movies with my love. I love staring at my dog and gushing over how cute and soft she is. I love going for walks, especially in the woods. I love coloring in my adult coloring books. So many ways to pass the time, and so little time to pass.
Making the decision to put down my old dog whose quality of life had diminished severely.
Describe your personality with only one word.
What’s been the most important/transformative moment in your life during the past year?
As for a single moment that has been most transformative, I'd say it was a wellness session at work when I came to the realization that I am someone who needs to vent in order to get things off my chest and move forward. When someone listens to me when I vent, I feel heard and validated, and I am able to either get over whatever was bothering me, or begin looking for a solution or understanding. I realized in that moment that there are venters (and those who understand its necessity), and those who can't stand venters (those who see venting as nothing but unproductive complaining). This has helped me to be more discerning in who I choose to vent to, and try to gain some understanding from those who are around me when I vent.
What is standing between you and happiness?
Nothing. I'm quite happy.
What (or who) are you most grateful for?
My family. I am incredibly grateful to have a family that I love spending time with, that makes me laugh, and that supports me. Not everyone is so lucky, and I recognize that.
Name one thing you’ve always wanted to do, but have never done before?
Big dream: see the Great Pyramids in Egypt. Little dream: bake a chocolate souffle.
Where have you lived in your life? If you’ve never moved (or even if you have), where would you like to try living?
I've lived in: Ohio, Michigan, New York, Washington, Arizona, Florida, Oregon, and France.
What is the most important/most meaningful thing in life?
In one sentence share what your wish for your future.
I wish to always have enough and always be enough.
Where do you find your inspiration + motivation?
I find inspiration all around me, and motivation comes from within.
What is your motto in life?
