If you have people in your life that cause you doubt yourself, how do you cope with them?
Seriously have learned to turn it over to my maker. He’s the one whose opinion counts in the long run. I am my worst enemy. Journaling or talking to close friends and if really crazy, my life coach.
What is the difference between Like and Love?
Love is a choice that you commit that can last forever.
How much the word ‘I Love You” is important to you?
It’s a hug over the telephone line from someone I love. It’s a kiss on the envelope of life. Actions do speak louder than words; vows are important.
What makes you happy?
I believe happiness based on things that happen on the outside of my being; Joy spawns from within. That said, to me happiness, many things, a good nights sleep is on the top of the list (note: writing this at 3:00 am)
What aspect of blogging to you love the most?
Finding out I can write something and have it make ultimate sense, then rewrite it in less words. Twitter is good for this, too.
What do you feel is the most important takeaway for your readers (from your blog)?
A smile – hope.
What’s your favourite hobby (aside from blogging!)?
Aside from playing my instrument, I used to make some items from wine corks for awhile. BTW: I have learned that when someone says “you should sell those” to ask them to be a customer. They get quiet right away.
Nowadays, do you still believe in Destiny?
Who is God for you?
My best friend, one who knows all about me and still loves me most.
How do you handle a stressful day?
Obviously, not sleep, haha, I go online to my woman cave.
