Questions Of The Day

Had any good conversations with yourself lately? Did you listen to yourself? And how’d that work out for you?  (Credit Allie Bean)   https://thespectacledbean)

Sunday lunchtime, I really had to speak to me, there was no one else around. I’d allowed myself to sink into depression over the last few days, avoiding the people closest to me; I’d switched my mobile off, pulled the plug from the landline and ignored Facebook. I told me calmly and compassionately, to get up, brush my teeth (yes, I’d even ignored that for three days) and get in the shower. As I brushed my teeth, I smiled at myself in the mirror, toothpaste bubbles dribbling down my chin, and it made me giggle. I followed with singing (You are my Sunshine, my only sunshine – the song I used to sing to my now grown up babies) in the shower and happy to say, the rest of my afternoon brightened up.

What is gravity and how does it work?

They say ‘What goes up must come down’. Every time you jump, you experience gravity. It pulls you back down to the ground. Without gravity, you’d float off into the atmosphere – along with all other matter on Earth. We see gravity at work any time you drop a book, step on a scale or toss a ball up into the air. It’s the force that keeps the Earth in orbit around the Sun, as well as helping other planets remain in orbit.

What is more real – Mind or Matter?

‘Mind over matter’ says it all.

Should a vegetarian (or vegan) eat animal crackers? 

No actual animals are used in their manufacture. So, yes , if they don’t mind eating crackers shaped in the form of animals.

Lastly

Halloween Question:   

Name (describe) something you wouldn’t want to run into in a dark and deserted wood or alley.   Politicians are a given, so skip those please.  Thanks!

Ha. That would have to be my ex.

  1. Thanks for Sharing Your World and for the lovely shout out! I liked your ending photo/image there too. Spooky! I’m sorry about the depression, but am glad you were able to climb out of the slump and enjoy your life! It’s tough this time of year…gets dark so early, is cold and everything is dying. Easy to get depressed, hard to be cheerful. Good for you for doing so!

  2. Great answers! I love how your self-talk turned out. It’s amazing how hard it can be to look yourself in the eye, let alone smile at your reflection. Kudos to you for making a little bit a of smile magic. 😊
