Getting to Know Me Part 6

Hey doll hey!! Hope you’re having such a great day…. Im coming at tou with another 20 questions from the amazing blogger bekkibee22 … let’s get into them….

If you were to die this evening with no opportunity to communicate with anyone, what would you most regret not having told someone? Why haven’t you told them yet? Nothing. I make sure I always say what needs to be said because tomorrow isn’t always promised.

What do you spend too much time doing? What don’t you spend enough time doing? Too Much Time: My makeup… I can play with makeup all day if you let me. Not Enough Time: Cooking from scratch…. I use to make everything from scratch even pasta.

What makes you feel more alive? Several things. A nice homemade Italian meal, the quite when I first wake up in the morning, the look my hubby gives me when he’s proud that I didn’t give up, a good praise and worship song, basically anything that makes me feel happy… I take nothing for granted.

What is something you know you do differently than most people? The way I do my makeup. When I do my eye makeup and then do my brows, I cut the brow line with a cream pencil that takes some of my eye makeup away and then I have to go back in and do part of my eye makeup again…. I find it makes my eyeshadow perfected that way.

What advice would you offer to yourself five years ago? One year ago? 5 Years Ago: Dont beat yourself up because you have limitations with your illness. 1 Year Ago: Spend more time with your loved ones … several will pass away and you will wish you had more time with them.

What small gesture from a stranger made a big impact on you? I was feeling down about myself so I went shopping for makeup and all the guys behind the makeup counter keep telling me they were living for my eye look. It made me feel better about myself that day.

What are you looking forward to in the coming months? Being able to see my baby sister if this virus pandemic ends.

Did you ever feel lost in your life path? How did you find your way again? Yes… I felt like I had no purpose in life and I read the bible verse: Ephesians 2:8-9

“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” And I realized that God had a purpose for me … it just wasnt my time to know that purpose just then… and so I waited patiently for HIM to open my way.

What do you want your epitaph to be? Here rests a gentle soul.

What do you regret not doing? Why haven’t you done it? I regret not spending more time with my Grandmom before she passed. Because I live in a different than she did and couldn’t go to visit as much as I could have.

What would constitute a perfect day for you? Cuddling up with my hubby watching horror movies and eating junk food.

What’s something you love about yourself? My ability to be compassionate.

When do you feel truly alive? When my hubby holds me…. when I am having a good fibro day ….. when I’m able to get all the house work done without resting …. honestly just basically all the time…. Im a lover of life and all it’s hidden blessings.

When people come to you for help, what do they usually want help with? Everything, Im a big people person and find true blessings in being able to help a person in need.

What do you consider as your biggest achievement in the last 5 years? Being able to bring my mother to Florida to live with me.

What is the most challenging part of your job? How do you handle it? I consider being a house wife a fulltime job … because I am disabled and my illness does take alot out of me I would say …. running low on energy…. I just try and do as much as I can and then leave the rest for when I’m less fatigued.

What was a major turning point in your life? Moving to Florida. It was here where I was finally diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and finally received treatment.

What’s one thing that could happen today that would make it great? I could get a company contacting me wanting to add me to their PR list to review makeup for them …. I’ve always wanted to be able to reach that level of success with my blog.

If you knew that in one year you would die suddenly, would you change anything about the way you are now living? Why? No… not even a little bit. I appreciate the life God has given me.

What would you like to ask yourself? Why can’t you be more assertive instead of letting people get away with stupid things? I’m too much of a people pleaser that I do tend to get step all over.

Well that’s all for now dolls. Have a great night/day and remember ….. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
