Cee’s Share Your World this week:
What do you value most in a friendship?
Do you prefer eating the frosting of the cake or the cupcake first? Do you prefer a specific flavor?
I like cake and frosting together. Chocolate is generally my preference, though I have a recipe with ginger cake and a lightly orange-flavored frosting that’s pretty amazing.
Have you ever been in a submarine? If you haven’t, would you want to?
Haven’t been in one and now that you mention it, I don’t have any curiosity about checking one out.
If 100 people your age were chosen at random, how many do you think you’d find leading a more satisfying life than yours?
If we’re in the U.S. I’d guess a majority of them feel dissatisfied a huge amount of the time, just because that’s my impression of much of the population — constantly wanting more and feeling unhappy with what they have..
I’ve been meditating and clearing old stuff and learning to look at life with gratitude for long enough that I generally feel satisfied — though I also work awfully hard at getting past health issues. I don’t let myself be influenced by whether somebody else seemingly has a better life than mine. If I know someone who’s doing well I’m happy for them and I assume I’m looking at a mirror of what can and will be for me.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful I got the majority of Christmas shopping done. I’m looking forward to enjoying some Christmas music and trying to get into the spirit of the holiday.
