This week: “The best four words that describe you”.
(That one could be a choice!)
Since I will have to make a stab and do some spoul-searching, let’s go with
Yes, I am honest. I hate lying. I see no sense to it. I have had people around me and in my extended family who lie all the time, for no reason whatsoever. Seriously, one used to flip-flop stories. It must make them feel powerful in some way. But I see power in truth. That isn’t to say that I blurt everything out or don’t temper comments, because I am also
I was brought up to be so. We know that if someone needs something and it is within our power to give it, (be it time, money, a place to stay, etc.), we give it. We need to kind to others. You really do never know what is going on behind closed doors, and if people took care of their own more, gave of themselves more the world would be a better place.(Even if it was not practiced among the family members all of the time.)
I have always read with a dictionary nearby. Now one is on my computer and on my phone. I collect reference books and my phone gets used to look things up more than it is used as phone. If I don’t know something, I look into it. I can’t let it wait for long.
I need to write, even if it is in my head. I need to develop new ways to be creative with food; we seldom eat the same thing prepared exactly the same way. I have been developing plant-based and/or gluten-free recipes for myself and others has been a challenge that I have embraced.
I need to make things, although I have not done as much of that as I had in times past. However, this past week, I designed and made a ‘Busy-quilt’ for the just -turned one-year-old Grandson who is too precocious for his own good. (He discovered at 11 months that he could hang up on Grandma’s video calls and amused himself to no end doing so, he learned how to turn off their electric ‘fireplace’ even before that, and he has been using the remote to find what he wants to watch on TV for several months now.)
So, there we go, although I dare to guess that others would find different and less attractive attributes,
like me being a
1) PERFECTIONIST (Which also makes me a PROCRASTINATOR)
2) WORRIER, (as someone said about me, I have a sense of family almost to a fault),
3) SHRINKING VIOLET, (although people mistake it for aloofness; this also leads to procrastination)
4) ODDBALL/WEIRDO, (I have diverse interests and many seem to come into conflict with people’s ideas of ‘conservativism ’ and ‘liberalism’, because I don’t know why there is an all-or-nothing-at-all ,us-or-them attitude.)
So, there you have me. I have no idea what YOUR choices about me would be.
(If you feel the need to mention anything, please take in mind #2 on my top list!)
