Great Scott! We have already accomplished one whole month of this new year!!!! We have walked through 4 share your worlds already and today it is time to SHARE OUR WORLDS for a fifth time in 2021.
In case you do not know, Share Your World is a weekly challenged hosted by SPARKS FROM A COMBUSTIBLE MIND. In this challenge Melanie asks us several questions and in answering them we all share our worlds! This week’s questions and my answers are found below. Once you have read my answers please hop on over to Sparks… to see what Melanie’s other contributors have said.
NOW ON TO THE QUESTIONS……
If the government offered to suspend all laws, and law enforcement for 24 hours, letting you (and everybody else) do whatever you wish… Would you be in favor of it, or not? (Credit for this question goes to Cyranny and her Daily Quickie Question)
OH HECK NO! We have seen what can happen in less than twenty four hours when law enforcement and laws were still in place. How much more dissipation would there be without any safe guards in place?
What would be the creepiest thing you could say while passing a stranger on the street? (We’re suspending the whole social distancing and Covid involvement in this scenario)
Ummm….Yeah…..I will not be upping my creep factor by answering this question.
As a child, what did you think would be great about being an adult, but isn’t as great as you thought it would be?
Somehow I thought making my own decisions would be a lot cooler than it is. Things look so black and white when you are young. The older you get the more you understand that most decision do not fall into the strictly right or wrong category. There is lots of gray in the world.
What, in your opinion, has been blown way out of proportion?
The importance of opinion.
Gratitude Section (Optional as always)
Where is your ‘happy’ place? My happy place is the prayer place.
The music is beautiful.
Thanks as soon as I read the question that old hymn started in the back of my mind. I haven’t stopped singing it since.
I know. It ticks to your soul, because the words are so true.
They are for sure!
Thank you Joseph for Sharing Your World! That song was lovely, and yes, that is a very happy place to go! I love that hymn! I doubt anyone thinks of you as ‘creepy’, so your answer there was right on target! That was a rather strange question to ask, but it’s gotten a lot of interesting responses. Have a great week and thanks in addition for sharing your beautiful home photos this week! I’ve been admiring your prowess!
Thank you Melanie. That one question on the creepy has garnered a lot of really good responses. I have been reading through some of them. It was a good if odd question.
You’re absolutely right, the importance of opinion is blown out of proportion. Good answers!
Thank you very much John. My sister is, among other things, a drama teacher and one of the first lessons she teaches her students is an exercise called “I am having no opinion.” On stage as in life it is important to sacrifice your opinion for that of others. When everyone does it then everyone gets to share an opinion safely and the best answer can be found.
