Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

Pondering Personal Thoughts

1. How old would you feel if you didn’t know how old you are?  There is a big part of me that feels much younger, like in my mid-20's.  She's the part of me that convinces me I can start jogging, the one that thinks wearing something pink is oh-so-cool and is just silly.  Sometimes I wish the rest of me could be as carefree.

2. Are you the kind of friend you’d want to have as a friend? I would hope so!  I think I'm a good friend who laughs with you, cries with you and will always stand by your side.  I try my hardest not to hurt other people and just to be a decent person.

3. Look back at the last year.  When did you feel most excited about something in your life?  I do have to say that this last year has probably been one of the most difficult ones in my life.  Through it all, though, what excited me the most was to look all around me and see friend after friend who supports me, no matter what.  That excites me because it's pretty rare to have one or two of those special people in our lives and I had/have many.  That makes me feel extremely blessed.

4. Have you ever been with someone and not spoken a word, only to walk away thinking that was the best conversation ever?  Yes

5. If you won 100 million dollars Monday, would you continue doing whatever you usually do on Tuesdays?  Knowing myself, I would.  If I won that sort of money, my life would change for sure but I don't know that I'd up and quit my job right away.  I think about the people left to deal with it and I couldn't do that to them.  Eventually, though, I could see myself making changes.  Getting up at 5 a.m. to go to work each day, for example, would change for sure.  It would take some time for it to sink in that I actually won that money.  I don't trust things so easily.

6. What would you do differently if you knew no one would judge you?  That's a tough one to answer ... people always judge.  I might be more willing to dance more freely in public.

7. Share something you do differently than most people.  I never learned how to tie my shoes using the bunny rabbit/around the pole method.  I tie them differently, the way my dad does.  It's hard for me to even say how I do it, it's just way different.  So if I had to teach a child how to tie their shoes, I think it would take me some effort to teach them the way everyone else knows how to do it.  On the other hand, there's a lot to say about doing things different than other people.

8. What’s one thing that you really want to do that you’ve never done?  I would love to travel to parts of the world that I haven't been to yet.  I've been to a lot of different countries in Europe and I'd love to see more places while I still can, like Greece, Scotland, Ireland, Spain. 

9. If you had to move out of state right now, where would you move?  To be honest, I'd fight it if someone told me I have to move.  I'm a California girl, although not the typical blonde, blue-eyed one most think of when they think of California.  I just love where I live ... close to the beach, desert and mountains.  No matter where I go, I always miss home.  There are some great states out there and I'm by no means putting down any other, but I need to be near the ocean.  That's just me.

10.  What is the one thing that you’d like to change most about the world?  I would say the thing that bothers me the most is the way people feel superior to other people and treat them as though they are underlings.  That might be someone judging you because of your different skin color or the fact that you weigh more or that you think differently.  Honestly, I wish we could all respect each other for our differences, yet still love each other for them.
