Questions:

1. Who would you most like to meet (dead or alive) and why?

I would have loved to have met my paternal grandfather – he was Korean. My grandparents divorced and I only got a chance to meet my paternal grandmother that has been deceased for a few years. I saw her a few times on trips to Nicaragua. She was such a strong lady, so creative, so loving. As I grew up, either I was teased at school or was nicknamed for my Asian facial features, specifically my eyes. As time went by and now as an adult, we finally were told about my paternal grandfathers side of the family. It was such an amazing feeling knowing that even if only to have his Korean features – I’m happy to know something of him lives in me. My children also have my facial features and it just reminds me of how far our blood line goes – incredible!

2. Who is your favorite author?

One of a few, the author Lauren Weisberger that has written titles like The Devil Wears Prada – great by the way! I’ve been recently itching to read When Life Gives You Lululemons – have to get that!

3. What is one thing you would like to accomplish in your lifetime?

In my lifetime, to know that I’ve done a good job raising the children God has sent to me. I try to raise them to best of my abilities and pray that I can continue to lead them on the path to knowing the Lord as their one and only true Father. As my life will not last forever, but the love of Christ will live in their hearts forever.

4. What is your biggest regret?

Regret, I try not to look back at my life with regret. However, there are a few events, heartbreaks, friendships that I would have liked to have gone differently, maybe have been more honest. I would have wanted myself to have been stronger and able to have been willing to speak on what was in my heart, things have remained left unsaid – on my behalf. Isn’t that unfortunate, when you didn’t speak on something and would have liked to?! Ugh!

5. What is one thing you could start doing to make a difference in someone’s life?

Aside from living with chronic pain and spending most of my days on edge due to the pain. I try not to be snappy or disrespectful to people. I try but if you come to me with some nonsense about life’s hardships, to me – I apologize in advance for my lack of interest. It’s hard to want to make a difference in someones else’s life when I’m barely making a difference in my own. I do want to make a difference through this outlet – my blog. And outside of this outlet, I try to be a good ear to whomever needs one, be a good listener – not always a talker. Again, living with chronic pain on a daily basis can get in the way of trying to be a ‘good’ friend by societies standards, but I try my best. If I think of you, I try to reach out and take advantage of that moment and send a text or anything to let you know, I’m thinking of you. I can definitely start wanting to build stronger, better friendships.

Mystery Blogger Award – 2

Mystery Blogger Award

I want to thank my fellow Chiarian blogger over at Simply Chronically Ill for this amazing nomination! There is nothing like getting recognized by fellow bloggers and this amazing soul is phenomenal and her blog is filled with amazing content, her poetry is both thought provoking and intriguing. She also gives tips on how to save and links to great deals! What’s better than saving?! Thank you again and if you haven’t gone to her blog, pay her a visit! I appreciate how these awards allow you to get to know me, they’re fantastic!

Here are my questions for my nominees:

1. If you could cure one disease, what would it be and why?

This here, this here, is a great one! I would find a cure for Chiari Malformation + Syringomyelia – that’s two not one, it’s OK! This thing is both painful and exhausting – find a cure already! I have six babies, SIX, find it now! 😉

2. If you could speak any other language what would it be and why?

Let’s see, my little ones and I speak both English and Spanish and at times I feel it just isn’t enough, so we should definitely try a third! I would speak – and I must thank Google for this, the South Korean dialect of Hanguk. I have Korean descent and would love to dive into something from the culture.

3. If you could do your life over, what is one thing you would change?

Oh wow, this is a bit deep! Although there are times – many, many, many times, where I think my life made a wide turn – or wrong turn, into what I thought wasn’t in my ‘plans’ I am a firm believer of how things change, people change and my life changed for a reason. I have chronic pain and an illness that in 2018 – today, has no cure, and although at times it may seem unfair, unbearable or frustrating, there is nothing God would allow in my life that I wouldn’t be strong enough to bear. 🙏🏽

4. What is one word you wished you heard more often?

Hello. Can we get a simple ‘hello?!’ How hard is that?! It’s often forgotten and dismissed as something that’s not important. I think a simple hello has the power to change someones day, to brighten someones day, to transform an inner most feeling someone may be having on that particular day. Maybe you’ve gone somewhere, entered a room or simply thought of someone but didn’t have the thought or courage of following through – because your excuse is always not having the time, say hello, send a hello to someone, to a friend, to a family member, hell to your spouse that woke up before you saw him/her leave the house! Send them a message and say, hello! So simple, yet so thoughtful and TRUST they’ll appreciate it! Amazing.
