Tami was kind enough to encourage me to post the Ten Day You Challenge on my blog as well. So…. here goes.

Here I go….

1. The most blissful sound to me is hearing my dog Sunshine snore.
2. I read a random page from The Secret every morning.
3. I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing the miracle of healing through the skilled hands of a Reiki Master.
4. I’m afraid of getting old.
5. Whenever I hear familiar church music, I tear up.
6. I majored in public speaking in college because I feared it. I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it. I ended up loving it and graduated in the top 5% of my class.
7. My guilty pleasure is watching American Idol.
8. Most all of my accomplishments in life have been the result of someone telling me they doubted I could achieve them.
9. I believe with all of my heart that I came face to face with my guardian angel.

    Wow.. sharing is scary

    1) A book, an episode on tv, a song or social media friends elicit more emotion from me more so than people i have in my life, with very few exceptions
    2) at times, i think im invisible (not literally, of course)
    3) I’m afraid of being forgotten
    4) I believe in going with my depressive side at times, it fuels my writing
    5) I’ve had writers block for 20 years (just cant finish)
    6) I am a jane of all trades
    5) I think i have PTSD from the death of my father

    6) i have been craving a cigarette.. and its been over 3 years
    7) I (like Suzie above) tend to be motivated most when someone tells me I CANT do something
    8) I internalize pain and isolate when i hurt
    9) If i had money enough. i would road trip forever
    10) if i could, i would build a log cabin in the mountains

      Thank you for sharing. It can be very scary. I sat on this post idea for a week before deciding to dive in and have a go at it. I believe your #1 is true for many. The good news about that one, in my experience, many of the friends I’ve made through social media are some of my best:) And #4… wow, yes, and that scares me. There’s another secret of mine! Writing darker emotions scares the crap out of me…. because I know to be authentic, I have to feel it. The Muse was my hardest book to write because of a few scenes where Jane has to come to terms with her past hurt over being bullied. Thanks again for sharing:)

    The few times I had to do presentations to my professors at University I almost puked. I hate public speaking. This was one of the things that I feared would keep me from teaching. However, my fears would never enter the classroom with me. Even when I had my teaching exams, where different university professors would come in and watch me teach, the anxiety never showed up. As I enter the classroom, it vanishes…not sure why or how, but it does. And I’m thankful.

    I love spending time with my family
    I love spending time with my friends
    I like to play tennis and golf
    I love singing in my choir
    I need to get away in the reading and writing
    playing the flute
    make hiking
    listen to the sounds of nature and smell the smells,
    singing the cicadas, chirping birds
    also listen to the waves lapping
    contemplate the stars and the sun
