Share Your World ~ 8/31/21

Wait! Don’t go August. Hard to believe we’ll have only four more months of 2021. Melanie is providing the set up yet again. Back in the older days, set ups meant coke, sprite, or club soda. Beer and set ups meant time to partay!!! ‘Nuf silliness. We’re going deep on these today.

QUESTIONS   

Are human beings required to better themselves and will doing that make them happier? No and yes. I think the word required is throwing me. For way too many years I did exactly what I thought was expected or required of me. Not anymore. I want to break free ala Freddie and the rest of Queen. However, there have been studies which show people just want to feel necessary and needed. Upskilling/bettering yourself is a nice way to do that. Might even make one happier. But might also be relative. Since as feature image from Frida Kahlo (which I wholeheartedly agree with) states in a nutshell happiness is a daily choice.

Is it easier to love or to be loved? Loving is easy (sounds like a song lyric to me). When I really think about this question, for me, to be loved is easier. But that’s only because of B who says very little but does everything. Actions do speak louder than words where he is concerned.

Outside traumatic brain injury, can memories be completely erased? Yes I do believe that over time memories can fade away completely. Our brains can hold only so much information. We are bombarded daily. In my case, eventually older memories are replaced with newer memories, Though some things from the past are memories that for whatever reason I hold on to forever.

Is there such a thing as a good death? Yes when the suffering is too much to bear. My Mamaw and my mom are examples of that. Cancer is a bitch.

and one ‘silly’ one because the former questions were fairly serious:   What do you imagine is inside a baseball?    A bunch of string at least I think that is what was there when my brother cut one open.

GRATITUDE SECTION

Feel free to share something uplifting this week!  I’m grateful that I was able to complete part of my quarterly audits yesterday because we got a dispensation to use July data. Woo to the Hoo!! I LOVE being early 🙂

As always, more to come.

  1. Thanks, Jilly, for Sharing Your World! I have to wonder sometimes who thinks up the questions I freely borrow. They will throw in the odd word that just seems either odd in the context, or is unnecessary like in question #1. I heard an old saying once that said (paraphrased) “The only things we’re REQUIRED to do in life are die and pay taxes,” We don’t have to do anything really. Good point you made! 🙂 I wondered what was inside a baseball, thanks for telling me. I just remember we were told never to cut one of them open because it would explode, being full of tightly compressed air or some such. Someone always does the unwise thing and tries it on though. I am sorry about your mom and mamaw. Cancer is a bitch. It took my father too. 😦 Congratulations on being early! That must feel amazing! 🙂 Have a great week!
