  1. I love these provocative questions.

    I am most proud of the work I have done to improve the parts of me that are broken or flawed.

  2. One is getting my degree whilst working fulltime. More recently it’s getting through being stressed & coming out the other side – there are a lot of people who helped me so that’s not just my accomplishment.

      1. thanks 🙂 it’s in stuff I was interested in (health sciences, statistics, computing / robotics, astronomy, astrophysics…) It wasn’t work related so I did it for fun 😉

  3. My children – hands down. They are amazing, and to cover the bases, I’ve offered to pay for any future therapy they may need if I have inadvertently passed on any of my many mental foibles.

      1. Thanks for asking. Hmmm, where to start? If I had to pick the worst of my foibles, it would be my tendency to ruminate. Decision making becomes complicated when you fret over your actions after the fact. That is one thing I didn’t want my kids to emulate, so I tried to keep it to myself.

      2. Those are great questions. It goes back to the ‘nature vs nurture’ theory. I was either born a worrier and second-guesser or those traits were somehow instilled in me at a young age. Most likely, it’s a combination of both. At this point, all I can do is be aware of it and try to circumvent it when it arises.

      3. I’m trying positive reinforcement. When I think of the action in question, instead of berating myself for doing or saying something stupid, I think of something I said or did that was worthwhile and give myself a pat on the back. I also try to think of the entire event and how lucky I was to be a part of it or I think of the good that came out of it for all involved.
        Thanks for asking.

  4. My kids and they way that I’ve stuck to blogging, thus far. Usually, I am a habitual quitter. I get bored and I quit—EVERYTHING! So far, I’m more excited with each day!

  5. My kids! They have such creative, ambitious and smart minds. They have huge hearts and old souls. They know what it means to love unconditionally.

      1. It were a gradual process as I grew up on the farm, the 4 years I spent in the USMC.. once leaving the USMC I started living my life my way in earnest… 🙂

  6. I think I change my answer way too much but currently it’s the first draft of MoonWell, I’m sure in a month or two I’ll get tired of that story as editing is the worst…. But for now I’m quite proud of not getting distracted and dropping the tale halfway through in favour of another flight of fancy like I’ve done countless times. Such is life.


    1. I know that feeling. Throughout the way of writing my book I was like this. I changed my opinion about it so many times and I still do. I guess it’s the need for perfection talking…
