Proust Questionnaire ...

Last weeks slip of the mind (garage door ... robbery) has had me thinking ... I am overstressed! I have way too many things on my plate ... how can I simplify and enjoy my days more? How can I stay ahead of the rat race instead of feeling like I am constantly being chased?

I found this on my dear friend Charlotte's blog and I am sitting down to enjoy a Diet Coke and think about my answers. Charlotte is an amazing person. She is so clear about who she is ... how she wants to spend her time and is passionate about her love for her husband. Everything about her is magnetic!

Here are my thoughts ...

What is your idea of perfect happiness? A tidy house, a completed to do list and an afternoon with nothing to do but hang out with my family while enjoying a great bottle of wine and tons of laughter
What is your greatest Fear? Being left all alone by everyone I love
What is the trait you most deplore in yourself? My insecurities
What is the trait you most deplore in others? Judging others
What is your greatest extravagance? I am not an extravagant person ... the simple things bring me the most happiness
What is your current state of mind? Pondering my life ... but pretty relaxed
On what occasion do you lie? When I am afraid
What do you dislike most about your appearance? That I do not recognize fat self in the mirror.
Which living person do you most despise? My husband's first wife
What do you most value in you friends? Unconditional love and endless laughter
What or who is the greatest love in your life? My husband. I can not imagine my life without him and yet everyday I want to kill him.
When and where were your happiest? As a child spending summers with my grandparents ... I always loved each and every day
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? Being afraid of so many things
What do you consider your greatest achievement? Giving birth to three children so self assured
Where would you like to live? A big city with a hours drive to the beach every weekend
What is your most treasured possession? My children
What is your favorite occupation? Fashion designer
What is your most marked characteristic? Short, sassy hair - which I love!
Who are your favorite writers? Anyone writing about historical figures
Which historical figure do you most identify with? I have absolutely no idea ... probably a bad answer
What is it that you most dislike? Anything fake or plastic
What is your biggest regret? Not traveling abroad before getting married
Which talent would you most like to have? To bake ... baked goods always seem so personable to give as gifts
How would you like to die? Old and at peace in my sleep
What is your motto? Everyone makes mistakes ... it is how you handle the mistake that defines who you are.

That was the best thirty minutes I have ever spent ...

Charlotte ... you always challenge me to be a better person ...
