This week Melanie has some very interesting questions for us in SYW
Fill in: ‘If I were really completely honest, I would say that …’ This is a question for ‘radical honesty’. What are the things you wouldn’t normally say? Things you would otherwise actually hide? What’s on your mind? What would you really like to be able to say?
“Your words are hurting me, deeply” But I never say that. I love my family too much to say this to them but sometimes in my desire to be the perfect mother/grandmother I try to do everything for them and end up over stepping my boundaries. They get annoyed and say things which are hurtful. I never could say that it was hurting me. All I do is apologize to them repeatedly. And I think it’s not likely to happen in the future either.
Have you ever broken anything? What about rules?
In college I broke my meniscus (cartilage in the knee joint) It later required a surgery to remove it. When I was expecting my third child, I slipped in a bazaar and broke the other meniscus in the same knee! It resulted in another surgery on the same knee sometime later. Then three years ago, I fell and broke two bones in my right foot.
As for other things, I’m an expert in breaking things and they are way too many to tell. But I’m not a rule breaker. In fact you’ll find me lecturing those who break rules!
Are you also afraid of spiders? What is your biggest fear, other than spiders? (if you’re not afraid of spiders, use your biggest phobia instead).
Nopes, spiders don’t frighten me. The same is true for many crawlies. I abhor flying cockroaches and am genuinely afraid of snakes. I also am afraid of activity that involve heights, like zip-lining, chairlifts and mountain climbing!
Do you think time goes faster as you get older?
The theory of relativity says that time passes faster when we are having fun and slower when we are in trouble. By this logic, in old age Time should move slower!
GRATITUDE SECTION (as always, optional)
Please share something that really inspired you from this last week or month.
My fellow bloggers inspire me daily by their posts, stories and poems. The responses to WDYS are remarkable in their diversity and I love to read how the same image inspires a different response.
In other news, my grandson drew this image of “Shadow the hedgehog” for you all.
Some flowers to brighten your day;
Thanks. Melanie for providing us with such interesting questions every week.
