Melanie is the host of SYW
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?
I think it will be a 40-60 split. More talk and less work. That’s a problem with gabbers. We talk more and that takes up a lot of our time. I have done a lot, and am going to do more but yes, I will talk even more than that!
What does the world need less of?
Dishonesty, bigotry, racism, cruelty, injustice…….. It’s a very long list. The first step is always to start from yourself.
Do you feel older or younger than your age?
I feel younger. I think I look younger too as all the adipose tissue beneath the skin results in fewer wrinkles. But when I think I’ll be 60 in November, I feel that it’s not real.
What is a cause you’ll always passionately support?
Social justice. I really feel that we all need to speak up when there is injustice or inequality.
And right now, telling people to pull the mask to cover their nose. It’s a daily routine now that I’ll tell people wearing masks on their chins that they shouldn’t bother for it’s not serving any purpose.
GRATITUDE SECTION (as always, optional)
What is your personal affirmation if you have one? (for this instance “affirmation means emotional support or encouragement.” )
I tell myself when things aren’t that rosy (or peachy) that they could always be worse. We need to look at the positives first as they are way more than the negatives. By the time we are done counting the positive blessings, we won’t have time or inclination to count the negatives in our lives.
Many thanks dear Melanie for posing such interesting questions each week.
