Share Your World 22-4-19

Melanie of Sparks from a Combustible Mind has asked Sahre your World Questions;

This Week’s Questions:

1. Was the last thing you read digital or print?

Lots of blog posts on my reader. In print I have started a book given to me by a friend, ” These crazy Asians” I haven’t made much progress on it but I plan to.

2. Are you more an extrovert or introvert?

As a young person, I was quite an introvert but with age I am becoming an extrovert. I find it easy to talk and interact with strangers. Only people who I cannot open up to are those who are arrogant. With them I still am an introvert.

3. How is your life different from what you imagined as a younger person?

I was studying to become a doctor and imagined myself on the top of my profession by this age. But instead I chose to get married and never got back to completing my studies. I am now a proud mom of three children and grand mother to three grand babies. Not a bad trade off.

4. Do you think about dying?   Does death scare you?  Why or why not?

I do, and it’s because I was exposed to the idea when my mom passed away when I was six. Then there was a time my father was seriously ill when I was eighteen. So I thought about death as it affected my own life and in general. Dying is a part of life, the end to be exact! I have no worries about it. I would though want a peaceful exit, with minimal botheration to my family.

GRATITUDE:

I found this interesting challenge and did it myself.  I’m offering these questions as a gratitude challenge for those who care to do it.    You can answer in text or photo. 

I think a smile of happiness can fit most categories. It makes me happy, it can make others happy and I can gift it to anyone I want to make them smile as well.

Additional Gratitude Bonus Question: 

Who has been the kindest to you in your life?

The first person was my father. He was not only kind to us but was the most kind, generous, and loving person I know. Secondly, my husband. He is kind and understanding. He is generous and forgiving. I am blessed to have both of them in my life.

  1. Thanks Sadje for Sharing Your always upbeat and hopeful World! I’m sorry you never completed your courses to become a doctor. I think your personality is uniquely suited to being a care giver…you could give lessons in bedside manner if nothing else! Have a great week and yes, a smile is a ‘one size fits all’ gift! 😀

  2. This Week’s Questions:
    1. Was the last thing you read digital or print?
    Jews God and History
    2. Are you more an extrovert or introvert?
    Always been an extrovert.
    3. How is your life different from what you imagined as a younger person?
    I wanted to be a chemist when I was younger but life led me elsewhere. Been married 50yrs, 2 children, 3 grandchildren and one great grandchild. Became multi disciplined in many of areas of sciences, biology, Quantum physics, mathematics in relationship to time and space, theology and cosmology etc.
    4. Do you think about dying? Does death scare you? Why or why not?
    I have seen death all my life with those I did not know and those I did know. I do not let it consume my thoughts. Life is always in motion the day will come when I will take a rest but today is not the day. I think in the present and look to the past for answers can’t worry about the future can not see it.
    5. The kindest person in my life.
    My wife of 50 yrs who put up with me and helped me grow into a man.

      1. Perhaps I will , I am finishing the 7th day from the leningrad codex on the 7 days of your creation. It is nowhere close to King James interpretations for a lot of reasons. I spend my time studying. My next blog will be on what is called Time Dilation and how words operate in that realm. Basically time accelerates when it gets to a large object ie your eyes. The words I write accelerate through time and stop before you. Why words used in the present tense from the past are relevant to us today in absolute terms. Sounds complicated but it is not. I try to put things in layman’s terms. The doctors told me 5 yrs ago I had a terminal illness and I should die. I decided I would die on my terms not their terms. I do not dwell on dying only on living till I get pooped out. I constantly learn it never stops. Time is not an absolute measure it is relative. You might call yourself 50 it only comes to life when you own that word and play out the definitions cognitively in your conscience. Time for me is played out in the quality of my life in the present looking at the past. Grandpa is long winded so my grandchildren tell me. Thank you for your kind comments which are few and far apart no days.

  3. What a great gratitude scavenger hunt! It’s always hard to retain that attitude of gratitude. Seems like it be pretty easy to remind yourself of these things after you’ve finished hunting. Thanks for sharing Sadje.
