From •Inspire Yourself•

Look at the tree and choose the one that is immediately most appealing to you. Don’t think about it too long, just choose, and find out what your choice says about your personality.

1. You are a generous and moral (not to confuse with moralizing) person. You always work on self-improvement. You are very ambitious and have very high standards. People might think that communicating with you is difficult, but for you, it isn’t easy to be who you are. You work very hard but you are not in the least selfish. You work because you want to improve the world. You have a great capacity to love people until they hurt you. But even after they do . . you keep loving. Very few people can appreciate everything you do as well as you deserve.

2. You are a fun, honest person. You are very responsible and like taking care of others. You believe in putting in an honest day’s work and accept many work-related responsibilities. You have a very good personality and people come to trust you easily. You are bright, witty and fast-thinking. You always have an interesting story to tell.

3. You are a smart and thoughtful person. You are a great thinker. Your thoughts and ideas are the most important. You like to think about your theories and views alone. You are an introvert. You get along with those who like to think and learn. You spend a lot of time, thinking about morality. You are trying to do what is right, even if the majority of society does not agree with you.

4. You are perceptive and philosophical person. You are a unique, one soul of your kind. Next to you there’s no one even slightly similar to you. You are intuitive and a bit quirky. You are often misunderstood, and it hurts you. You need personal space. Your creativity needs to be developed, it requires respect of others. You are a person who clearly sees the light and dark sides of life. You are very emotional.

5. You are self-assured and in charge. You are very independent. Your guiding principle in life is “I’ll do it my way.” You are very self-reliant and know how to stay strong for yourself and the people you love. You know exactly what you want and are not afraid of pursuing your dreams. The only thing you demand from people is honesty. You are strong enough to accept the truth.

6. You are kind and sensitive. People relate to you very well. You have many friends and you love helping them. You have this warm and bright aura that makes people feel good when they are around you. Every day, you think about what you can do to improve yourself. You want to be interesting, insightful and unique. More than anybody else in the world, you need to love. You are even ready to love those who don’t love you back.

7. You are happy and unflappable. You are a very sensitive and understanding person. You are a great listener who knows how to be non-judgmental. You believe that everybody has their own journey in life. You are open to new people and events. You are highly resistant to stress and rarely worry. Normally, you are very relaxed. You always manage to have a good time and never lose your way.

8. You are charming and energetic. You are a fun person who knows how to make people laugh. You live in a state of harmony with the universe. You are spontaneous and enthusiastic. You never say no to an adventure. Often, you end up surprising and even shocking people. But that’s just how you are. . . You always remain true to yourself. You have many interests and if something proves of interest to you, you will not rest until you acquire a profound knowledge of this area.

9. You are optimistic and lucky. You believe that life is a gift and you try to achieve as much as possible and put this gift to the best use possible. You are very proud of your achievements. You are ready to stick by the people you care about through thick and thin. You have a very healthy approach to life. The glass is (at least) half full for you. You use any opportunity to forgive, learn, and grow because you believe that life is too short to do otherwise.

I chose # 7… so now you know the kind of person I am! k1358159

Am I a Good Person?

I’ve had a few comments lately that stuck with me…vl0008b011

One was “I like how you think!”…u15284580

I wasn’t sure about that “Terry” at first…

How do my words come out?

How do I express myself?

Do I sound like the person I really am?

What is it that others are hearing?

I believe that’s “a good thing”… as I call it…

Liking what she hears…k15019591

We seem to like the same things

Have the same valuesk9530732

Have a caring nature

So, I was pleased that I was thought about in that manner…

Another came from a friend I made recently…

She says, “I find you “unique”…k8528075

OK … Janice…

Unique… can be many things

Crazy unique…k2231908

Dress funny unique…k5212671

Say things off the wall unique…

and then she proceeds to tell me…

It’s a good thing… in a good way…

She says she observes me…k5973988

ME! … why???

She says she notices I talk to all kinds of people…

different colors… car0191

rich or poor…swi0041k0644874

friendly or not…

unattractive to beautiful…k14205364

So… I’m thinking… “What’s unique about that?”…

but, it seems she “can’t” do that…

“Can’t” is one of those words NOT in my vocabulary…

Why not?

Shyness?k9298563

Opinions?

Issues from your past?

How you grew up?

Heh, people! … we are grown up now!…

We make ourselves who we want to be!…

WE are in charge of making ourselves into who we would like others to like…

Of course I was a little taken back by the comment… but, knowing it was meant “in a good way”… I left smiling…

Another friend calls and says she just likes to hear my voice… (thanks Joan)…k11313815

That I sound…

so positive…

so friendly…

so truthful…

so helpful…ti087a0205

What do you say to that!

except…

Think Positive Thoughts! k15306418

Be KIND!

Listen!

Help if you can! k6314979

It will only benefit in making yourself feel even better!

Maybe I’ve become a pretty good person!…u12026968

I could live with that!

The letter “I”…

http://flickrcomments.wordpress.com/2012/08/28/story-challenge-letter-i/

a fellow blogger… Frizz by name… has this on Tuesdays each week… Going through the alphabet…

First time I’ve participated… but, quite fun…

The letter for this Tuesday being “I”

My first thought was about me …”I” !

but, then my “Idea” Box caught my eye…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I made it to hold ideas that come to me… in case I couldn’t think of something to write about sometime…

Actually that never happens

Look around… take a walk… listen to conversations…

The world is so full of “ideas”… even in my small part of it!

I opened the box… and just found blank papers I had cut to put in my box…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

No ideas there…

My ideas are in my head…

Rattling around sometimes…

Pushing me sometimes…

Momentarily making me stop and just listen sometimes…

but, always flowing…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Ideas… an interesting concept… Thoughts that suddenly materialize inside us…

Giving us things to make our lives interesting…

Idea … The definition I choose…”A plan of action!”…

Daily Prompt: Happily Ever After

“And they lived happily ever after.” Think about this line for a few minutes. Are you living happily ever after? If not, what will it take for you to get there?

What did it take for me to reach where I am?

We all have our ideas as to what “Happily Ever After means… Fairytales always seem to end with that comment…k12768952

I find life is not that way…

It is a mixture of good/bad… k6035688

sad/happy… rich/poor… k2340514

love/hate… k12681164

faith/wandering… k2177044

and in the end or near the end of life… if we can say, “I am happy!”… that’s a lot!…

The reference up above says…”and THEY lived happily ever after… Of course they can be one… or in my aspect… with my partner… my husband

My son said once, “Marriage is forever!”… or so he thought… He wanted what his Mom and Dad had… He seemed to feel we were in it for the long haul… and we were!…

“To death do us part!” was taken seriously… in our vows…

k7237722 x20434329

His didn’t quite work out that way at first… k8159527

but, now many years later… I believe he has found his “Happily Ever After” too…

u12084724

All of our “Happys” are different… It’s where we find our contentment…

cfr0048

I can do without very well… where others can’t…

I can love one person forever… some can’t!….

I can see the wisdom learned in enduring hard timesk11172032

… others can’t!…

I can feel the love emanating from all kinds of people… others can’t feel it!…

I can see how being there for others can bring me happiness… others can’t begin to feel it!…

I can be happy with my imperfectionsk12375672 whereas others struggle with being perfect!…

So, yes… I feel I’m living Happily Ever After.. k3441818

because I wake up with good thoughts… feeling loved… and thankful for every day!

Dusty Things… “They Can Go!”

Gift..

I read this blog this morning… and found it quite inspirational

… It seems a lot of people did… Simple thoughts   … but, put in a way that we could all relate… There are so many “things” in our lives we just don’t need… I began cleaning out “things” from my house … shed… basement… attic… when I retired… Too many things cluttering up our space… So now… maybe I’ll begin cleaning out my “mind”

Too many thoughts that are negative… They can go! …

Too many thoughts of “what ifs”… They can go! …

 Too many thoughts of things in the past that way us down… They can go! …

Too many regrets… They can go! …

Too many wishes that are quite impossible… They can go! …

Too many “I’ll do that tomorrows”… They can go! …

Too many “I wish I hads”… They can go! …

 Oh, my!… I think I might think and see a little clearer… I think I might have more room for “Happy Thoughts” I think I might be able to see what God has in store for me… I think I see a brighter future!  … I think I see a more purposeful life!… I think I can see!

Please read Dusty Things. See what it inspired me to do!
