The Bee Shares Her World ~ January 1st, 2019

We’ve made it. 2018 is behind us and 2019 looms with all its possibilities, hopes and resolutions. I’ve mentioned it already a couple of times here on “The Bee Creates” and here on “Therapybits” that mine are rather simple this year:

– Be happy
– Make those around you happy
&
– be the change you want to see

And I am gentle with myself and start with small steps. One is to collect plastic and other rubbish that’s flying around in our lovely landscape while walking to gorgeous ex-racer greyhound who is nearly one year with us.

Had a little conversation with a blogger on Jill’s blog a couple of weeks ago. He or she was rather negative towards Christmas and a much bigger Grinch than I ever could be. I felt a little patronised too and it made me ponder my own grumpy groaning about other people’s behaviour. So I decided to stop it and to be the change I want to see. In the end, it’s everybody’s own decision what sort of world they want to leave behind and what impact they want to have on their surrounding. Not my monkeys not my circus really…

I am going to share what I have decided to do and if anyone wants to do the same be my guest. If not  ~ fair enough. Life and the climate will deal with all of us eventually. But let’s face it: Being grumpy has never encouraged anybody to change their behaviour. Imagine Martin Luther King not having a dream but having a hizzy fit? That would have worked well, wouldn’t it?

To cut a long story short 😉 today I take part in last years “Share your World” LOL.

Sparkly Melanie’s questions were:

For the parents in the crowd:  What would be the absolute worst name you might give your child? If you’re not a parent (I’m not), then what’s the worst name you could give your pet?

 

What mildly annoying curse might you wish you could curse annoying people with?

 

What’s the weirdest thing you did as a child?

 

Do you believe things happen for a reason or are random?

 

And Finally, in the spirit of New Year’s:   What’s a resolution (if you make them, I don’t) you’re making for the New Year?   How confident are you in keeping it a reasonable amount of time?

And you can find the suggestions on how to take part here.

And these are my answers:

For the parents in the crowd:  What would be the absolute worst name you might give your child? If you’re not a parent (I’m not), then what’s the worst name you could give your pet?

No idea. I usually try to give them nice names or keep the ones they already had. What about Donald Trump? Or maybe “Dick”? 

What mildly annoying curse might you wish you could curse annoying people with?

May you dream of the Chicken Dance Song every night and have to hum it all day long 🙂

What’s the weirdest thing you did as a child?

One? I am ginger and a Scorpio!!!! I have “weird” written all over my forehead. But it’s probably when I was daydreaming when going for a walk with my parents and landing in a slurry pit having to walk through the whole village stinking like Gollum (not that I knew of Gollum then… 😉 )

Do you believe things happen for a reason or are random?

Both. It’s like that thing with those photons which are a ray and a particle at the same time…

And Finally, in the spirit of New Year’s:   What’s a resolution (if you make them, I don’t) you’re making for the New Year?   How confident are you in keeping it a reasonable amount of time?

A resolution is a goal that you think you have to achieve in the new year because it is healthy or socially expected but you know exactly you can’t be bothered because the ice-cream and brownies taste too good and exercise is much too exhausting so you’ll never get around doing it 😉

NOW MY DEAR READERS,

GO, discard of your resolutions 🙂

AND HAVE LOTS OF FUN

      1. He won’t mind … underneath it all, he’s a good man with a good heart. He just sees the world differently than I do sometimes, but he also makes me think about things in ways I otherwise wouldn’t have.
