Tagged Again

Hill g'mom tagged me to reveal the kind of person I happen to be. Here I go-
I am: Not what I thought I was. I recently realized that I too am very sensitive tho’ I’ve never really admitted it even to myself. Despite claims of being light hearted and thick skinned I am a very sensitive person who broods for days over minor issues.
I think: a lot about the future our children are likely to face. The polluted environment, unhealthy competition and a general omission of childhood with toddlers graduating into mini adults. I wonder if the fault lies with us.
I know: that nothing changes much but would like to keep trying all the same..
I want:a peaceful life in the days ahead.
I have: no regrets about the life gone by. There were trying time but they only made life spicier.
I wish: universal brotherhood.
I hate: arguments. I personally feel they serve no real purpose..
I miss: my childhood when my dad was alive. I also miss the quiet confidence of my mother.
I fear: the loss of a loved one.
I feel: there is more to life than petty disputes over non – issues. Why can’t we just move without having to prove a point at every step?
I hear: that the present generation is better equipped to deal with life. If it is indeed so I welcome it with an open mind ask them to correct me if I err. I shall try to to accomadate their views.
I smell: the bhindi sabji I just made.
I crave: for sweets now that it is banned.
I search:like hill g’mom I look for my glasses on a regular basis and get scolded by my husband who produces it from nowhere.
I wonder: if life ends here or if there are other lives where one can atone for grave mistakes. I am all the more curious since I read a book by the psychoanalyst Brian Wiess.
I regret: not having taken better care of myself. It is not very pleasant having hypertension and high sugar.
I love: the sound of rain particularly if it eases out a dry spell.....
I ache: same as hillg’mom-in all my leg joints after being inactive for a bit
I care: for everything but not in an obsessive way.
I am not: I think I’ll let that pass since my answer to the first question already deals with it.
I believe: no human being is created bad.
I dance: I have a flat foot so dancing is out.
I sing: I do not sing except when no one is around. But I love music and musicals.
I cry : easily sometimes for no real reason.Melodramatic movies would move me to tears and once I had at least ten people hushing me up
I don’t always : agree with others but I rarely show it. I believe that each one is entitled to his/her views.
I fight : my tears more than ever before.
I write: whatever comes to my mind.
I win: sometimes but lose more often.
I lose: my cool when I have to deal with injustice
I never: form a first opinion about a person. I wait to know the person better.
I always: enjoy the rare occasion that I get to spend with my brothers and sister.
I confuse: people's faces.
I listen: to the other point of view and try to balance opinions.
I can usually be found: at home after college.
I am scared: that my husband may precede me to the after world.The thought of spending my last days alone terrifies me.
I need: my time and space after a hectic schedule.
I am happy: an earlier response answers that one. I am also happy that I took up my job when I did. I have very good friends who are like family.

I invite anyone interested to take up this tag.

Great to have you back, even if it is tag. But this tag is "straight from heart". Don't worry too much about the future. I am sure people who faced WW I and II would have done the same. But believe me, Mother Earth has a way of reinventing herself.

Nice to see you back HHG'ma, it was fun to read this tag and to get to know you.

// I fight : my tears more than ever before. // Yeah me too.. I noticed that I' making too much of an effort, probably I should let them flow.

Have Fun, Take Care and God Bless!
With Best Regards,
Srijith.

hey HHG you're back!!!

Such cute answers to many of them.
I loved specially the one : **I regret: not having taken better care of myself. It is not very pleasant having hypertension and high sugar.

You must put that on top priority, and I hope now you take better care of yourself.

Considering an another persons opinion is in itself such a gift. Not everybody does that in the present times....hold onto that...

nice tag, i had also take it up and felt nice...

u must take care of urself now, i know hypertension and high sugar together are certainly not great. We indian females tend to ignore ourselves please dont do that anymore :)

PS: I always enjoy and appreciate your openness towards the ideas of the new generation, i wish there were more people like that and at the same time more people in our generation who are willing to appreciate that....

Thanks for doing the tag HHG. You did it so quick too. It took me solong to do mine. It is strange is it not, that as we grow older it becomes more difficult to control our tears?

Hypertension and sugar, both of these have become quite common now a days, nothing to worry about, just a little change in diet.Even i have hypertension.
