How would you define faith?
I like to talk about movies, books, the environment, and public policy (politics). Although I will generally talk about anything and everything as long as its not the weather (small talk–I loathe small talk)
Oh, God. I can’t do small talk.
Silly things. Nonsensical conversations about nothing at all, particularly when using emojis. It brings some light relief from the serious stuff I write about all day long.
The mind needs a break once in a while, right?
Cats, my books, or flipping houses
Which one of your books do you consider to be the best?
I think it’s a tie between Cid and For the Heart of Phillip for me. I love them both.
My life, God, and Motivate Others
What’s the best motivational quote you ever saw?
Bees, bee keeping,
Are you a bee keeper? 😀
I am. It’s been an amazing education.
What better topic could there be? 🙂
Life, philosophy, ideas etc
Abstract talks all the way!
Life is the best!
Anything that has everyone laughing.
Laughing is a great way for us to keep our moods up!
My cat. I can only talk about my cat.
How old your cat is?
He was 11 on 26th of April. We got him when he was barley 8 weeks old 😊
Wow! He’s a senior now 🙂
I still see him as a kitten 😊
Movies!! I’ve seen some weird ish.
What’s the weirdest you’ve seen so far?
Too many to think of right now…but the one I can think of is Antichrist starring Willem Dafoe…thats one of those things in life when you watch it and feel dirty for watching it after lol
Books and my daughter.
What kind of books do you like to read? What genre?
I read a little of everything, but my favorite is science fiction, especially dystopian.
I like to talk about my writing a lot, probably quite a bit more than people would prefer. 🙂
It seems you’re very passionate about writing.
What makes people afraid.
Interesting. What are the top 3 things that make people afraid?
It’s all over the board. People generally talk about something that scares them in the sense that a spider or a snake scares them. Sometimes people are afraid of losing something, like material possessions, but also ideas like losing your eyes or teeth, or even something along the lines of losing the ones the person loves. The type of fears I’m searching for are not these. I’m trying to discover the quintessential element of fear, which I’ve so far named the lingering.
Psychology. I graduated from an undergraduate “pre-grad” honors college with a degree is psychology. It has always been a passion. Unfortunately, I don’t get to talk about it often since that wasn’t the career path I followed. I mostly discuss it with my spouse in the context of either child development or the criminal justice system.
What factors influence the most children development?
Parents that express their love is one of the biggest protective factors oddly enough. There are tons of other factors. Exposure to violence is a risk factor for example (and this includes on tv and video games). There is also the highest factor – the child’s innate tendency toward resilience. They have no idea how to build resiliency though. There are just protective factors and risk factors.
Oh I can talk about pretty much anything! I can flit around like a butterfly while conversing. But lately I have noticed I seem to talk a lot about getting old and losing my memory and missed opportunities! Its all I seem to think about!
How do you feel when you talk about getting old and losing your memory and missed opportunities?
I feel like I have so less time with me and so much to see and do!! Will I ever be able to see and do all that I want to see and do? To be very honest I feel like a failure. I feel like I have not lived as much as I am capable of and that much of my potential is going to remain untapped.
For the past, yes. For the future, it’s up to you 🙂
Anytime I can fanagle DM into a conversation, I do. I’m obsessed.
How come you got obsessed about this?
He told me once, “You are now my sister-of-sorts.” I had always wanted a brother since I was a young child. I never dreamed that he would be that to me. It meant so much to me–more to me than him, apparently. Being ‘disowned’ by my ‘brother’ still hurts.
Mental health – because it’s time we stopped hiding it under the rug.
It is. And it gets more and more important.
it was the only time in y life i was truly happy and i had this great family and the most amazing grandparents who are no longer around and i miss them a lot
This must be tough…
Sometimes.. but with suffering comes knowledge
I like to talk about mindset and how important it is for our past, present and for our future!
So what purpose you have in your life?
My purpose is to live a life where I commit to fulfilling my values, dreams, gifts and passions. 😉
