Share Your World – SYW


Share Your World – SYW

Melanie from over at Sparks from a combustible mind says …

I will post four or five different questions each week for you to answer.  There are two ways which you can participate.

Create a SYW  post.  Then post the link to your blog in my comment box or leave your answers in the comments box of my blog. To make it easy for others to check out your post, title your blog post “Share Your World”  and link it to this post.

What’s the first thing you notice about a person?

Usually the things that most people don’t look at, the way they have their hair, the quality of their shoes, if they are colour co-ordinated, if they have a pride in the way they dress, what kind of life-style they lead.

What three habits do you feel would improve someone’s life?

I think everyone is different, so it’s not really down to me to judge what might improve another’s life – however the usual generics could be applied such as getting out more into the world and no that doesn’t mean mixing with more people or being overly social, really exploring the world in which we live and be daring and not afraid to take risks.

What takes up too much of your time?   Would you stop that if you could?

Currently, probably blogging – but restricted the way l am, there isn’t an awful amount l can do to improve that unless l actually do stop. But as it is something l derive enjoyment from, why should l?

Cookies (biscuits to those elsewhere), pastries, pie or cake?   If not, what does your sweet tooth crave?

None really, l am not allowed sweet things anymore – but am rather partial to chocolate. I do have an incredibly hungry sweet tooth, but have learned painfully that it is unwise to over indulge it any more.

Gratitude?  Are You Happy?  If so, why?  If not, why not?

Generally l am happy, l think there are several factors that could be greatly improved to reduce the stress factor l have in my life, but over all l am happy. I am not joyously happy, but l am happy.

    1. I don’t think anyone can be joyously happy, l think those are moments in time that captured for a while like perfection. Happy as a base level is a better grounding than many who seemingly think they are joyously happy all the time.

      The should repaired would greatly help me become ‘happier’ but not joyously.

      1. Okay, if you are settling for happier, than that is my wish for you. And you are right, most people will not be joyously happy all the while, just in moments of time!

  1. Rory, thanks so much for Sharing Your World with everyone! Someone used the word “contented” for that happiness question, and maybe that’s how I should have phrased it. It sounds like you ARE contented, if in a lot of pain (that shoulder business…brrrrr). I’m glad you spend time blogging, I think it would be real boring around here if you did not. Best wishes with that shoulder!

    1. Hey Melanie, maybe the word is contented’ perhaps indeed. i wouldn’t say l was currently content with my life, but l am happy … l had a conversation with Sadje earlier about being joyously happy which l am not, so what is the limbo that sits inbetween happy and contented?

  2. Um between ‘happy’ and ‘contented’. You know, that is a deep question, one that needs input. I’m blogging about it today, and will credit you with the idea. I wonder what we’ll find out?
