Thanks to Melanie at SPARKSFROMACOMBUSTIBLEMIND for the questions.
Pancakes, waffles or French Toast as your breakfast favorite?
None of those are my “breakfast favorite”, ((or is it: “.. ,”?)) but of those choices I usually would choose pancakes because they are more filling but for flavor, the french toast.
Do you think a person’s name influences the person they become?
I’m not sure what you are asking but if it has to do with a name that ‘invites’ ridicule and the young one is bullied, depending on their character, they could ‘become’ angry, sad, withdrawn, etc. However, as we age, we can chose to overcome those hurdles and, if one dares, a name can be changed quite easily. People don’t seem to think of that but I’ve done it; easy peasy.
Would things get better or worse if humans focused on what was going well rather than what’s going wrong?
I think we need balance; balance is something we don’t seem to be able to do. Looking at what works is motivating and gratifying. Focusing on what is not working is an opportunity to change it/things – which we also don’t do well.
Is math something that humans created or something we discovered? Is looking at reality mathematically an accurate representation of how things work?
I’ve tried to answer this twice and I give up. Maybe another day.
Gratitude: I’ve been feeling a little anxious the last couple of days – that’s not like me. The gray, rainy, cold weather doesn’t help either. I typically have a grateful attitude for the most important things in life so sometimes I try to find something different………….. ……….. a take away, a thing to be grateful for right now with this pandemic is…. it reveals the inadequacies within our government (for those who’ve yet to discern), it reveals what kind of people we are, what we value, where we could stand improvement, it reveals that we are not better or smarter or more Holy than other people/countries, that we as likely to fail and fall and die and, in some cases, more spectacularly than others. It’s an opportunity to wake up, stand up and do better. My most optimistic opinion is that we will need to do this individually and hope that there’s enough of us to tip the scales and make an impact. If not, I am grateful that I have the capacity to be an observer and not contribute to the chaos.
