A look at life, achieving good physical and mental health and happiness
I am writing to express my opinion, share my experiences and to maybe provide some insight. My blog is addressing women at 50 ( but men are welcome to read my posts) ,their issues and the questions that come up at this stage in life. I don’t aim to teach, but to learn together.
It’s been quite a ride, I went from a naive 23-year-old to a 58-year-old grandmother of three.
Married life means a lot of adjustments and compromises. If a person thinks that by getting married they are going to get their happily ever after, they are in for a disappointment.
Marriage is a lot of hard work and it takes years to establish a family. I am lucky that I found a wonderful man and it was not that difficult to make it work.
But two people, however similar they may be, are still two different personalities. And to find harmony and sameness within a relationship takes a lot of give and take.
My journey was not very easy but love, understanding, and a will to make it work, made things manageable. I am today so proud of my three children who all are doing well in their own lives. And of course my three lovely grandchildren too.
Do you think the music you personally listen to [as in your favourited artists over just generalised commercial listening] suit and reflect your true personality?
I never thought about it that way. I just go with the feel of the song. If I like it it goes on my play list.
But there are some songs that do speak to the inner me. And yes they can be called as truly reflecting my personality.
What’s your average ‘online screen time’ equate to per day in hours?
I am blogging all day long. Not consistently but sporadically. So I think around 5-6 hours. I blog from my phone and would pick it to check my blog after every few minutes.
Are you currently happy with your Government’s management of your country? [If you wish to simply answer yes or no you can, equally if you wish to elaborate in more depth you can do that too]
Nopes! Is there anyone who is?
How many actual ‘real people’ as opposed to virtual people do you actually give a damn about and what happens to them?
I care about my family, friends and mine and my husband’s extended family. So all in all they are around hundred people. And I am deeply concerned about my blogging family too. So I’d say a couple of hundred people.
Quick!! No body’s watching!! What crazy thing would you do if nobody was watching which you can’t do normally because it embarasses you or is perhaps a little too naughty?
Do a little jig as I walk with my favorite song playing in my earbuds! Shhh….. don’t tell anyone.
If you HAD to leave the country in a hurry and in a disguise – what have you done??
Wrote lot if anti- Trump posts on my blog!
What are some of the most adventurous or craziest/strangest or weirdest things you would like to do before you die?
I think since I somehow missed on the adventure gene, I will probably like to write a book ( that would become an instant bestseller) before I die!
What is your opinion or do you have any thoughts on the whole virtual reality industry and the way it will soon become more of an acceptable way of life in the replacement of holidays, adventures and or the workplace?
Never did think about virtual reality seriously. Maybe if I’m faced with the option, I would think about it seriously.
What do people always get wrong about you when first starting to get to know you?
Maybe that I am a snobby person, whereas I am just shy. 😅
What’s the strangest dream/nightmare you have ever had?
I never remember my dreams or nightmares long enough to write about them. But one thing I do remember from my teen years that I used to dream that my mom was still alive, just living somewhere else. I guess too many stories around that theme caused these dreams.
What’s the most trouble you have ever been in?
Me! In trouble!!!
What’s the worst date you’ve been on and why?
A dinner date with my husband where the discussion about politics got a bit too heated. But we really forgot all about it the next day!
Sitting on the couch all day can turn one into a couch potato….. really! You are unwilling to get up for anything other than going to the bathroom.
“Hey toss me that packet of lays”,
or “toss me my book I’ve left in my room”.
“Do be a dear and toss me that pillow. I think I’ll take a little nap on the couch!”
The result of this daytime activity is pretty predictable;
All night you will toss and turn in your bed because you are not tired at all. How can one get tired by sitting or sleeping on the couch all day long?
I think it is better to toss this attitude out the window, put on your walking shoes, and get out in the fresh air to burn some of that energy. I will guarantee that you will enjoy a good night’s sleep. No more tossing and turning in the bed for you!
