Share Your World 🌎 ~ 1/18/22

Thanks Melanie for the set ups aka questions. Time to knock ✊ em down. Help me Jesus, life is topsy turvey right now.

Questions Fill in: ‘If I were really completely honest, I would say that …’ This is a question for ‘radical honesty’. What are the things you wouldn’t normally say? Things you would otherwise actually hide? What’s on your mind? What would you really like to be able to say? I wish I could release the hounds and tell you but if I’m completely honest, I avoid conflict at all costs. Good little girls don’t complain or make their opinions known. The few times I’ve tried to speak my piece haven’t turned out well. And quite frankly most people aren’t interested in my two cents.

Have you ever broken anything? What about rules? I’ve broken hearts 💔 yep a real Casanova. JK. I married my childhood sweetheart. My only boyfriend despite a multitude of crushes. As for rules, they’re made to be broken. 😂

Are you also afraid of spiders? What is your biggest fear, other than spiders? (if you’re not afraid of spiders, use your biggest phobia instead). Spiders are good. Well most 🕷 are good. They keep things in balance. Gardener in da house. My biggest phobia is of needles. Not shots though. Intravenous blood draw 🩸. I got past my fear to donate but it is always with risk of fainting before I’m done.

Do you think time goes faster as you get older? Time is a construct of man. It’s neither fast or slow. It’s hard to explain my point. I guess all I’m saying is I’ve referred to time as whipping by way too fast for most of my life. I feel time moving quickly because of how I mark time.

GRATITUDE SECTION (as always, optional) Please share something that really inspired you from this last week or month. I’m grateful for my family support. We’re stronger together and we’ve had a few rough patches this week taking care of MoMo. We couldn’t do it alone. Thank goodness 😅 we have each other ❤️‍🩹

  1. Thanks Jilly for Sharing Your World! It must be something ‘in the air or water’ because things “Sparks side” have been fairly stressful lately. My sympathies for your woes! 😦 You have family to help, which is more precious that you might realize, but it sounds like you let them know you appreciate them! I actually DO ‘get’ the time concept you were trying to share. It’s for deep thinkers and folks like Einstein (not saying I’m like Einstein or that physicist in the wheelchair who died a few years back). I suspect you understood them very well too! 🙂 The trick to not fainting at blood draws is to deliberately not look. You’ll feel it of course, some phlebotomists don’t deserve the title, and should be barred from practicing; but overall I find not looking (I’m not especially phobic of needles or the sight of blood, but it’s not my favorite thing to look at either) is a good way to prevent passing out or in my case barfing on the phlebotomist. They tend to get tetchy if someone does that. 😏 Have a great week and I hope your Mo Mo recovers or the situation becomes manageable. Take care!

    1. Aww Melanie, I’m very sorry to hear you’ve got some stress going on too. I definitely don’t think I could make it without the family. We laugh a lot and are partially in denial but that’s ok. lol. I never look at the blood draw and supposedly the trick is to be super hydrated so the veins are easier to stick. At least that is what the angel I had last time told me. I was lucky because as you say, some do not deserve the title. This one did. We have a move in date for MoMo and every day we get a little closer to a better situation.
