The Friday Four
Once A Fortnight Question Game
Today some more brain tickling thought provokers!

Are you a perfectionist or can you take a step back and accept less than perfect?

I was one but now I’ve mended my ways. It wasn’t that I wanted things to be perfect for me, but I wanted things that I did to be perfect. Now I have realized that sadly I am an ordinary human and since I have no superpowers, my efforts will never be 100% perfect and that is fine.

• How often do you save online articles to your favourites list for reading ‘later’ and more importantly when do you then read them – as in when is your ‘later?’?

When I am rushed for time, I save posts on my reader to read later. But I do get to them in a day or two. If I can’t do that, I un save these posts because most would have become irrelevant by that time. There are certain posts with recipes, movie suggestions, and tv shows that remain saved till I have used that information in a useful manner.

When was the last time that you actively involved yourself in doing absolutely nothing for an hour and what did you do in that hour of nothing?

Just this evening, I sat on my lounger and did my coloring on the “Happy color” app. It was an hour or so. I also “do nothing” when I am playing my card games, solving puzzles, or just listening to music.

But if you’re asking, doing nothing as in nothing at all, that only happens when I sleep.

When was the last time that you were engaged in a difficult conversation and if you can ‘what was it and how did you do?’

What? Are you telepathic?

I just now had a difficult conversation with one family member. They were asking me to be more upfront with my emotions and feelings. And not keep things in my heart, where they fester and cause resentment. I was denying that I am not resentful, but they were insisting that since I am human, I must have some resentment!

The upshot was that we agreed to be more forthcoming about our feelings. (Haha)

  1. It can be annoying when someone close to us presumes to know what we feel inside. Because nobody (however close they may be) knows the other person 100%. We all have secret places that are uniquely ours alone, and I think one would go nuts if one couldn’t have that bit of privacy. Good on you for having such great communication with your family though. That’s an art and skill! Many of us (me among them) don’t have that kind of gift.

    1. You’re so right Melanie. I am a bit like you and keep
      My feelings to myself but she is different. She says what’s on her mind and asks me to do the same. 😉
