Would you rather be a super nice person and be depressed all your life, or be happy and a total *sshole? (Credit goes to Cyrannyfor this question, aired on one of her “Cyranny’s Quickies” posts.)
Why can’t I be a super nice person AND be happy too. In my opinion and observations, a caring person is often happy as it brings a feeling of elation when we are good.
Have you ever made someone cry?
Yes, many times when I scolded my kids. Never scolded my grandkids but they often cried when I wouldn’t give in to their demands. As for making an adult cry, not intentionally but sometimes it happens when one is sharing a personal experience.
Are you a dreamer or a go-getter?
I think I am more of a go getter than a dreamer. Though my dreams of losing lot of weight never came to fruition, so in that respect, I am just a dreamer.
If you were in a band, what instrument would you play?
I wanted to play drums at one point in my young life. I thought it’s a breeze and you just have to bang hard on them. Well….. it turned out to be way harder than that. But if I ever learned to play them I would love to be a drummer.
GRATITUDE SECTIONDo you feel gratitude is necessary?
Gratitude is essential in my view. Otherwise, we would never acknowledge our blessings and would remain unaware of how lucky we actually are.
