Here is a little looksie at three random questions I was asked in the past week and my responses to them…
I really should keep better track of questions asked so I don’t have to go back into all my social media and texts from now on!
[Tweet “Three questions I was asked this past week – journaling, how old is “old” and what made me :)”]
1. Do you keep a journal or diary?
I used to. Many times over the course of my life, I kept a journal. I’d write things down. Random thoughts. Sometimes a good writing exercise would pop into my head and I would write it down. Other times, I wrote out things I was angry at.
As a kid, my parents read my journal. As an adult, my roommates did. When I moved in with my then-boyfriend, now-husband, I couldn’t trust him not to read it after all the other time I had been burned. My blogs are the closest thing to a journal I keep now.
2. What age do you consider “old”?
I think “old” is a state of mind and it also varies from person to person.
When I was younger, I thought people who were in their 60s were old. Now that my parents are all in their 60s, it doesn’t seem so old anymore. Nanny passed right after she turned 93. Yes, i agree that is old… but Nan never really seemed “old” to me until she was near the end.
I’ve met people in their 70s and 80s that I think are old. It’s true what they say “You’re only as old as you feel”.
3. What made you smile in the past week?
Mini’s softball awards were last week. She won the Sportsmanship trophy. She was shocked and confused when she won. Throughout the season, Mini has been helping the younger girls on her team.
She gave one a lesson in hitting.
She high-fived girls who made good plays, even if they weren’t on her “team” when they played (she was in an instructional league with one big team and they’d be split in half to play an actual game).
She cheered for everyone.
After I explained this all to her, she just said “Oh. Are you sure I deserve it? Other people cheered too.” THAT is why she won it. Her humbleness is one of her best traits.
Well, that’s mine.
