My blogging has been a bit erratic recently and will be again due to travel and other things but today I am participating in Share Your World from Sparks who asks some thought-provoking questions.
Who do you think is an example of a successful person?
Success comes in many forms. We tend to think of people who have accomplished great things as successful and they certainly are. Inventors, scientists, entrepreneurs, etc are all successful but you can be successful on a lesser level too. Even if you have not accomplished everything you set out to achieve in life you can still be successful. Put things in perspective. Even if you don’t get to the top of your field you’re probably doing great things somewhere in the middle or even at the bottom. We can’t all be leaders. Some of us have to be willing followers. I believe a successful person is one who is happily living their best life and doing the best they can in the circumstances they find themselves in. It’s all to do with attitude.
Why are you doing what you’re currently doing? (take this in any context you like, either as a “what you’re doing RIGHT NOW THIS SECOND” or “what you’re doing in your life at this point” or any other way that occurs to you. The question is a bit ambiguous..)
I am doing what I am doing because I am retired and I can do what I want to. At this stage of my life, I can do things spontaneously. I can choose to get up early or late, I can choose to cook or not. There is a great deal of freedom in not having to care for others anymore. The only other person who is affected by what I am doing is my husband. We are together 24/7, enjoy doing things together and long may this last.
What is your personal theme song?
Che Sara Sara – What will be will be.
It does no good to stress over the future. My motto is to deal with each thing as it happens.
What do you think about tofu?
Tofu may or may not benefit my health. It is processed and I try to avoid most processed foods. However, I have nothing against it. I eat healthily enough not to bother with something that is not easily available to me anyway. Any food is better than no food so if I need to eat and tofu is the only thing on the menu then eat it I will.
GRATITUDE SECTION (as always, optional)
Where did you find bliss this past week?
Road tripping on The Garden Route, Western Cape, South Africa, is always blissful. Travelling from Plettenberg Bay to Struisbaai after a wonderful three weeks with the family was the perfect end to our holiday. The scenery was superb and the traffic was light in spite of many holidaymakers returning home.
