Wanting something to quench your thirst, what would you drink?
My preference would be Snapple but since I must cut back on sugary drinks I just drink water or tea.
Complete this sentence: Never In My Life Have I….
Hang Glide or Bungee Jump. Since I’m terrified of heights I would never do either of these things.
If you could be given any gift what would it be?
Health and Wealth. I’m really worried about when my rent increases next November. I’m working serious overtime now just to pay my rent and bills which is not good for my health. I try to put that situation out of my mind as there is nothing I can do to change things. Whatever happens, happens. Rising rent is something over which I have no control. However as those of you who have been following me for a while I’m doing my best to get control over my health. Eating better. Drinking more water. Taking Vitamin supplements and when possible getting exercise.
What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep, toss and turn, or get up and try to do something productive?
I work nights so I’m awake. Prior to my changing to the night shift I worked days and suffered with insomnia. I’m a chronic insomniac. I get very little sleep. Also the nature of my job (museum guard) often requires me to be up for 48 hours straight. I catch up on sleep on my days off.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I got to participate in a clothing challenge for Ladies over 50 which most of my readers saw this past weekend. Dressing up in various eclectic outfits was lots of fun and helped boost my self-esteem. It was an exercise meant to uplift our spirits. During the workweek I wear a drab blue museum guard uniform. At the job I’m just another cog in the workplace wheel of machinery. For this fun challenge I got the opportunity to express myself through fashion. I mix and match my Funky Fresh Fashion to please myself and through this expression shows that just because you’re past 50 does not mean you gotta dress drab or plain. I enjoy color because Color Pops and bright colors are uplifting.

This post resonated with me. I once had a friend who told me that I chose to be depressed which is the dumbest stupidest statement on earth. Does a person choose cancer, diabetes, heart attack? Why would I choose to be in the hospital, on pills that don’t work or sometimes spending entire days in bed? No it is not a choice and so little is know about the functioning of the human brain it will be ages before a cure is found.
I think we’ve all experienced emotional jolts at times in our lives. Imagine one moment we feel happy and positive, and then during a conversation someone says something that brings on a sudden feeling of fear, self-consciousness, fury, or the like. Or imagine that you go to your living room and discover your beloved pet is seriously ill, and are later told that he/she needs to be put down.
Powerful emotional jolts can also work in the opposite ways, as well.
