Cee has offically handed over the task to sparksfromacombustiblemind in regards to the Share Your World Challenge and has found an amazing successor. Today I will tackle another great set of questions and the challenge is as much fun as it was previously. So in that sense nothing has changed really. If you are into Q&A then definitely check out the “new” Share Your World from now on.
For those of you who have not participated so far here are the rules (that have stayed the same):
‘I will post four different questions each week for you to answer. There are two ways which you can participate.
- Create a SYW post. Then post the link to your blog in my comment box or leave your answers in the comments box of my blog.
- To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Share Your World” and link it to this post.
- Remember to Follow My Blog to get your weekly reminders.
I usually will respond to your entry on your blog, rather than on my page.”
But now let’s get to the main part:
When you are old, what do you think children will ask you to tell stories about? If you are ‘old’ (a term with different meanings for everyone); what stories do you tell your grandchildren?
That is a hard one to answer. Who knows what kids will be interested then… I guess they will ask me to tell them the story about how we moved to Australia and what it was like to grow up in Switzerland. They might ask me about my dad too as he had an amazing story. Maybe they will ask me why we threw out so much rubbish. Maybe they will ask me how we managed to get on top of the garbage issue (which I hope we will). I hope that they will ask me a lot of questions I can actually answer. Maybe they will ask me to tell them about the places I traveled to, about my experiences there, where I would love to go again and where I would never go back to.
I hope I will be able to tell my story and that they actually show interest in it. It’s a shame if you don’t. All our stories are worth being shared and told. All our stories will teach someone something. Maybe it’s the stories I shared on here about how different the seasons are in Switzerland compared to here in Australia. Maybe it’s the memories about my horses, dogs, family or friends that they want to hear me talk about. Who knows what they will be interested about. I don’t know yet what stories I will tell as I’m adding more to my “story book” every single day. I’m looking forward to it though very much…
When did something start out badly for you but in the end, it was great?
There are many little moments that were like this and made me question why I made the decision to do whatever it was in the first place but then it turned out to be one of the best decisions ever. I guess moments like these show you that you never truly know what is happening or where something will lead you. While I am an open person I also believe deeply in gut feeling and that’s the only one I listen to to the point where I say if it doesn’t feel right and strongly then I have to get out of it.
Maybe a good example was the soccer tournament I was organizing a couple of weeks back. I woke up by thunder at 2.30am and couldn’t fall asleep anymore as I could hear the hail and rain and storm outside. I knew we would not cancel it unless there would be lightning and even then it would only be suspended. The event was meant to be the big, amazing end of their season to 50 teams of girls between 8 and 11 years old. When I arrived at the club I could barely make it from the car to the club rooms as the wind was so strong and it was wet and cold.
We kicked off on time. The girls not only fought their opponents but also the elements in the first round. Then the weather changed. The sun came out, the rain and hail stopped and the smile arrived on everyone’s face. The rest of the day was a blast. Heaps of fun, great sportgirlship and lots of great games. The hail came back again, but only in the evening, when everyone was back at home, everything was packed up and sorted…
What do you think you are much better at than you actually are? Maybe this one’s kinda mean…thoughts?
I think there are a couple of things I think I’m brilliant at but might need improvement. I think I consider myself much more organized than what I actually are. So that’s one thing and I guess I should work on it??? May I say that this is an amazing question!!!
What would be the worst thing to hear as you are going under anesthesia before surgery?
“Are you still suffering from last night’s party?”…
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
I have to say it was a tough week with some challenges and some big decisions to be made. What makes me smile is the constant support from my family though. The encouragement and the having your back no matter what. And my friends who are always there for me, when I need them…
