Here are my answers to the questions JC has asked me.

1. Describe yourself in one word.

Passionate.

2. What do you do during your spare time?

Play volleyball, write, jog, meet friends, travel, draw, photograph, feel!

3. What is your dream destination for vacation?

Spain.

4. What is your favorite food?

Salads.

5. What are the Top 5 things you are grateful for this year 2017?

My teens, extended family, health, friends, Mr. One (wherever he is).

6. Why do you blog?

To pour out my soul and hopefully touch people’s hearts in the process. It’s therapeutic.

7. What do you do before going to sleep?

I thank God for life and ask his blessings upon everyone, especially those who are suffering and need it the most.

8. What time do you wake up in the morning? And first thing you do?

At 6. Press snooze. 🙂

9. What pet do you have?

My son has a dog (JB – and I love him!). And… I fed a stray cat every day in Spain last summer. S2

10. How do you think you can contribute to the society?

By being present in the here and now, wherever I am. By making people feel seen, visible and loved. By giving them a helping hand, not being self-centered or selfish, but aware of needs around me. By small acts of kindness many times a day – such as saying Good Morning, Good Night, holding the door for people who are passing by, being corteous. By trying hard to understand and respect people and also make myself and my needs understood. By volunteering to social causes. By making my pupils feel valued, encouraging them. Having fun, thought-provoking lessons. Having a strong personality!

By forgiving. Sigh. And not losing hope and faith. And love, above all.

It all starts with the small things in daily life. Not the big dreams for the future. Don’t you agree?

 

Here are the rules of being nominated:

1. Create a new post and thank the person who nominated you!

Obs. I just watched The Notebook and cried my soul out. Thus, the quality of the questions below.

  1. Who are you, deep deep down? Who do you aspire to be?
  2. What are your hopes and dreams? Some concrete goals…
  3. If you could hug anybody right now, and spend a wonderful week with them, who would it be? (You need not say the person’s name. Just tell us about him/her).
  4. If you could really make one person’s life better this December, whose would it be?
  5. If you could date/marry a fictitious character (from a book, movie or cartoon), who would it be, and why?
  6. What do you want people to feel and say about you at your funeral?
  7. You are at your deathbed, what are you proud of having done in life?
  8. Whose face is the one you picture, sitting at your deathbed by your side, missing you, kissing you, even before you go?
  9. If you didn’t have to go to work every day, how would you be investing your time?
  10. What is LOVE?

Author: TinderellaAnna

Anna is a character. Half-fictional, half-inspired in many, many true events. Half-European, half-Latin-American. She is happy, she is strong, she is a mom, a teacher, a friend. Despite the divorce - not of her choice - she is determined to be joyful, grateful, hopeful, sweet; believing that life is for sharing and that he is somewhere out there. But he will have to be as lovable as she is. After all, better alone than in bad company. Sigh: but better in good company than alone...

  1. I really appreciate your nomination. You may not have noticed I am Awards Free – this is why: https://soulgifts.com.au/awards/
    I would like to answer your questions though – so here goes:

    Who are you, deep deep down? Who do you aspire to be?
    I am ME. I strive to be authentic, loving, kind, respectful, nurturing, a good friend, most of all to me. If I can’t be friends with me, how can I be friends with others?

    What are your hopes and dreams? Some concrete goals…
    To make the world a better place, step by step. Spreading the message of peace, love, hope and respect through my blog is an important part of that

    If you could hug anybody right now, and spend a wonderful week with them, who would it be? (You need not say the person’s name. Just tell us about him/her).
    A close and dear friend of mine who lives very far away. She is inspiring, we connect on a deep level. I miss her presence.

    If you could really make one person’s life better this December, whose would it be?
    A friend whose life is filled with pain and struggle every day

    If you could date/marry a fictitious character (from a book, movie or cartoon), who would it be, and why?
    Nemo. He’s funny, cute, an optimist, loves life and adventure

    What do you want people to feel and say about you at your funeral?
    That she was a good friend

    You are at your deathbed, what are you proud of having done in life?
    Being authentic

    Whose face is the one you picture, sitting at your deathbed by your side, missing you, kissing you, even before you go?
    My husband and children

    If you didn’t have to go to work every day, how would you be investing your time?
    I am in that happy place now. I do what I want, when I want. Leisurely mornings, essential housework, blogging (of course!), socialising, meditating….

    What is LOVE?
    That’s a HUGE question! Simply put: Love is unconditional caring for another warts and all

      2. I love your answers!

        So sorry for your brother’s murder. Really sad. I had a similar occurance in my extended family… 😦 Then a couple of months later, I had a beautiful dream with her.

        Who knows, maybe someday in another life we will get to enjoy their unique presence again.

        So cool that you are in love with one of your characters! S2

        7 – Yes. Bravely done.

        9 – Lucky you! After much hard work, of course.

        10 – You couldn’t have said it any better.

    1. Thank you for your nice answers, Dave! I’m doing very well. How are you?

      Haven’t logged in in a very long time due to a wonderful trip to England.

      Very cool to read them – though… those weren’t my questions! Mine were much much deeper – in the lower part of the blog post. 🙂

      These were the ones I was really looking forward to reading your answers on:

      Who are you, deep deep down? Who do you aspire to be?
      What are your hopes and dreams? Some concrete goals…
      If you could hug anybody right now, and spend a wonderful week with them, who would it be? (You need not say the person’s name. Just tell us about him/her).
      If you could really make one person’s life better this December, whose would it be?
      If you could date/marry a fictitious character (from a book, movie or cartoon), who would it be, and why?
      What do you want people to feel and say about you at your funeral?
      You are at your deathbed, what are you proud of having done in life?
      Whose face is the one you picture, sitting at your deathbed by your side, missing you, kissing you, even before you go?
      If you didn’t have to go to work every day, how would you be investing your time?
      What is LOVE?

      Hugs! And Happy New Year! 🙂

      1. Oops — I’m sorry about my zoning out and answering the wrong set of questions. Will try to find time to answer the correct (and, yes, much deeper and much more interesting) ones!

        Glad you had a terrific trip to England, and Happy New Year to you, too!
