The Honesty Meme

Posted in:
Thanks to Sting, the Nigerian Scorpio, for tagging me in this free therapy. I have to say that this made me think and self-examination is never a bad thing. Let me share my thoughts.

Right now I'm feeling....very thankful to God. I am so grateful for having all my family, for life, protection and love.

When I'm alone I complete peace. I enjoy quiet times with myself, reading, writing, listening to music or just pottering around.

When I'm surrounded by people I feel.....lonely, especially if they are people I do not know well. So I do not like attending large parties where I do not know a few people. With people I know and already like, I shine. I sometimes surprise even myself how I can be the life of a small group.

One thing I hate is....wickedness and evil. Next is lying or beating around the bush unnecessarily. Please just come out with it.

One thing I really like about myself is I can usually adapt to almost any situation. I am strong and that is part of my strength. I can be open-minded and also be so flexible to withstand some major stuffs.

When I'm feeling sad I......cry. Yes o, I use to be cry cry but it has stopped a bit now especially as I came to a place of self knowledge and peace. I was more temperamental growing up with some major mood swings.

When I daydream it's usually and happily ever after, lol. That is why I write what I do and enjoy it so much. Next is to imagine and make out whole lives for everyone on blogville, hehehe.

I'm afraid of.....losing a loved one. This week has been hard based on this, but thank God for His word, "though you pass through the valley of the shadow of death..."

I'm happiest when......I am with the people I love. They know and understand me most and I can be my most vulnerable, hardest and most playful too. I can be mischievous and love making them laugh.

One thing that really worries me is ....what if I do not achieve everything I see, and believe me I see a lot in my future. I want to do so much, make a mark, create things that will outlive me.

If I could change one thing about myself it would ESP. Knowing things and reading minds is not an easy or simple superpower. Believe that and you will believe everything. Doubt it at your own peril. :):)

If I could be with anyone right now I would be family in Nigeria. I love and miss them a lot and much more at this time.

The family member I am closest to older sister.

If I was really honest with my father I would tell him....there could never be any father like him and I want to read his autobiography.

One thing I regret about my life is ......nothing.

If I only had one more day to live I all my usual stuff. Here I come Lord, take me.

If I was really honest with my mother i would tell don't know how much you mean to me, you taught me so much.

One thing about me that nobody knows is......the depths of me, and my future. I still haven't plumbed them completely myself.

I hope that someday in the future.....very soon, things become better in Nigeria. The education and health indicators are most important.

When I think about my family I feel.....happy, thankful, loved, cared for, safe.

Something I'm really embarrassed about is......staining during a period.

One thing about me I never want to change is.....myself. The me at the core.

One thing I feel really proud of far I have come as a person. God saved me and made me anew.

Blogsville has helped me up and spread the joy.

One thing I like about blogsville is......the plenty of stories. Thank you all for sharing.


I tag all those who care to reflect and share. Enjoy the rest of your weekend people, mwah!

  15. I cant stop loling at the 'cry cry'. Its good to come to the acknowledgment of God's deposition within... as a result we are confident. Nothing moves one; nothing shakes one other than the fear of God.

  19. I'm soooo feeling you on your meme. 'Just come out with it jor and stop beating about the bush':)

    ...Which is what you've done in the loveliest way possible.

  20. Family comes first with you. Very important. But your answer about your last day is awesome. I'm working towards being that 'at peace' with God and my world.

  21. @Naijalines, exactly. Thanks dear.

    @Ginger, yes o, I'm very big on family. As for my last day, I have started the process now myself...
