On a recent road trip with my nieces, Paige and Korrine, taught me a game: The Question Game. To be only 11, they asked some SERIOUS questions! I thought I’d use this opportunity to tell you more about myself based on their (and a few friends’) questions!
- WHAT’S SOMETHING THAT NO ONE WOULD GUESS ABOUT YOU?
A: I am VERY OCD! I have to make several lists throughout the day, I can’t sleep with a dirty floor, and I like things in a certain order.
- WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE IN?
A: Love. I believe in Love. I believe that God through his son, Jesus, is the ultimate manifestation of love. I believe that if everyone chose love as much as possible, the world would be transformed.
- WHY DON’T YOU HAVE A HUSBAND?
A: I’m very old fashioned when it comes to dating and relationships. Men these days seem to be very “cyber” in their thoughts and actions where marriage is concerned. I am not jumping into bed with a man, being a side chick won’t do, getting into a marriage thinking divorce is a viable answer choice…I’m not here for it. My mom and dad were married for 48 years and I know what marriage looks like. I refuse to marry a man who’s not willing to do that work with me. Not to mention, I am an extraordinary woman. An ordinary love just won’t do.
- DO YOU WISH YOU HAD DONE ANYTHING DIFFERENTLY IN LIFE?
A: Absolutely not.
- HOW DO YOU HANDLE A BAD MOOD?
A: I try to avoid allowing it to rub off on other people. I also try to make a grateful list or turn that negative energy into something positive.
- WHAT DO YOU WISH SOMEONE WOULD ASK YOU?
A: A question to which they didn’t think they already knew my answer.
- WHAT DID YOU LEARN ABOUT YOURSELF FROM YOUR PREVIOUS RELATIONSHIPS?
A: From the romantic ones, I learned my deal breakers. From others, I learned that most relationships are seasonal, and there’s nothing wrong with the seasons changing.
- WHAT’S THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO YOU?
A: Being like Christ, giving back to humanity, family, art, and peace.
- WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO IMPROVE YOURSELF?
A: Whew! This is an ever changing answer, but right now I am reading a book about marketing your work, getting reacquainted with LinkedIn for the purposes of business, adding more blueberries to my diet, and more kick boxing.
- WHAT’S ONE THING YOU’VE HAD TO OVERCOME IN YOUR LIFE?
A: Accepting that I have no control over people’s actions, not expecting people to do for me like I do for people, and not holding people’s humanity against them.
