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.
I love that you love them! 😀 Which part was the hardest to improve?
That I finally admitted that I had a problem.
Do you still have it or you’ve managed to fix it?
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.
That’s amazing! In what field you got your degree?
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 😉
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.
You’re an awesome parent! From your perspective, which are your mental foibles?
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.
Why do you think it’s so complicated for you the decision making process? Why do you fret?
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.
Very interesting! How do you try to circumvent it?
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.
Thank you for sharing! 🙂
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!
It’s awesome that you’ve found something to stick on. Since when you’re blogging?
I’ve been blogging since the end of September. I really enjoy it. It’s very cathartic for me!
I’m always proud of the study.🙂
Of the study? How come?
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.
It’s probably because they have a great example! 😀
My children and wife are easily tops. But also my parents and some very close friends. I’m also proud of the occasional photo I take or post I write.
I hope you have this feeling daily! 🙂
That I am living life my way, with a open mind and heart, and able to follow my dreams, not someone elses’s dream… 🙂
You’ve always been able to live your life your way or it’s something you decided in a certain point of your life?
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… 🙂
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.
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…
My children and my quest for achievements in life I.e. study
What’s your favorite topic for study?
My kids. Not that they’re technically kids anymore. But they’re both happy, healthy, caring and generous individuals who are my best friends.
That’s a great achievement and it’s thanks to your guidance 🙂
With a daughter as yours, no wonder! I remember all those things she does! 🙂
