The "Follow Friday Four Fill-In" is hosted by Hilary at Feeling Beachie. Each week, she posts statement with blanks. Our mission, should we choose to accept, is to copy the statement and fill in the blanks on our blogs. Then link up to her blog for sharing. Hilary is always looking for co-hosts and more statements for us to fill in. Please visit her, and let her know your suggestions!
The statements & My Answers:
1. When do you give up on your “dreams” and become comfortable with your reality? I think that some people struggle with this, especially as they grow older. The secret is to choose carefully as you navigate through life. Change what you can, and accept the things you cannot change. The “Serenity Prayer” is simple truth.
2. Why is it that people often feel that they need to give advice or “fix” other people? Acceptance is a gift that everyone appreciates. We all want to be liked for who we are, not who others think we are. It is hard to try to live up to expectations, and it leads to unhappiness.
3. During a power outage I find myself enjoying the peace and quiet of no technology. I appreciate hearing my own thoughts without distraction. I am often inspired to write at that time.
