Share Your World ~ 6/29/21

Thanks Melanie for being the best host ever!! Let the games begin …


A mixed bag today

What do you think of the idea of the ‘greater good’ principle? Story of my life to a point where what I want/need/desire is of little to no consequence. I have taken one for the team and contorted like a pretzel more times than I can count. One of these days, pow right in the kisser Jackie Gleason. Wah, Wah, Wah!!! Where’s the wam-bu-lance? Or the world’s smallest violin to play my sad sad song again.

Seriously I don’t mind but I do. Feels like my good nature has been taken advantage of. I need to stand up for myself one of these days.

Do you enjoy riding a roller coaster or other amusement park type ride? Yes!! I always loved the rollercoaster. My first experience was a loop-d-loop at Knots Berry Farm circa 1970 something. We rode over and over and over again. Except I haven’t been in ages and my back might not be able to stand the jolts these days.

Which musical instrument is the most annoying to you personally? None. I love music in all its forms.

Would you rather have a vivid imagination or a photographic memory if you had to choose just one? I win! I already have both!! If I had to reduce my gifts, <ahem> or curses, I’ll keep my vivid imagination. F.U.N!!!!

GRATITUDE SECTION (always optional)

Feel free to share fun plans for this season that you might have.   Especially now that many places are lifting restrictions and travel is a bit easier. We need a vacay something fierce. Not sure what or where but soon. After my car fuel pump gets repaired, our new roof gets installed, and we finally fix the master bathroom’s shower leak. So much to do and so little time. I’m grateful we have the means to do all this though. #blessedbeyondmeasure

  1. I think there’s a place for enlightened self-interest and that sometimes being a little self-centered is a good thing. Remember, Jesus said there are two great commandments: Love God, and love your neighbor AS YOU LOVE YOURSELF. You’re no good to anyone if you’re not good to yourself…

  2. Thanks, Jilly for Sharing Your World! To have both a photographic memory AND a vivid imagination! How great is that? I think that’s just fabulous! I can relate to your answer for #1. On a personal level doing all the compromising all the time can get old. Fair warning: When you do stand up, get prepared for a lot of resistance to your taking care of you for a change. Those who are taking advantage don’t like the fact that their bathmat (better than doormat, and I’m SURE you’re not that) grew teeth. It takes a while to get comfortable with the change too, but I will guarantee that you’ll feel amazing. It’s like a burden has been lifted truly! Best of luck with that, I know it’s tough! You do a great job of staying positive too and that’s amazing as well! Have a great week!
