Share Your World: July 24, 2017

Better late than never!

This will be a weekly post of the most random of random questions to answer- to share my world! Thanks to Cee’s blog for being the brainchild behind this!

List some of your favorites types of teas. As your typical northeastern American, the only tea I grew up drinking was nonsweetened, decaffeinated iced tea. To me it tasted like swamp water. Then, when I was in high school, as a frantic remedy to losing my voice three days prior to opening night of Les Miserables (and I had solos!), I drank hot tea with copious amounts of honey glopped in. The remedy worked, but I despise honey to this day.

It wasn’t until 2013 when my husband and I traveled to Ireland and the U.K. that I realize what tea was meant to be. After a pre-dawn arrival in Dublin and a bus ride and long walk to our hotel during a Bank Holiday (a foreign concept in the States), we were treated to tea in the drawing room (drawing room?!) while our room was prepared early for our jet-lagged selves. I was immediately hooked and downed ridiculous amounts of tea for the rest of the trip. When we got home, the habit continued. I eventually decided on good old English Breakfast and my other favorite, Lady Grey, as my mainstays.

If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?

What are a couple of things could people do for you on a really bad day that would really help you?

  1. Pray for me.
  2. Text me to see if I need anything, but don’t be offended if I don’t want to talk.
  3. For every day…don’t forget that I’m still here. I’m not the same person I was even a year ago, but I’m still at least a shell of me. Feeling forgotten is worse than almost anything.

Regardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility: If you could be an athlete what would you do? Remember this is SYW, dreaming is always allowed. I would dance again. I used to be a dancer. I was fit, coordinated, and agile! I loved ballet especially.

Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I’m grateful for this from last week. I’m beginning a slow crawl forward again.

This week, I’ve gotten one day of my new cardiac rehab program under my belt. I am entirely beat, but I did it without stopping and kept my heart rate where it was supposed to be. I’m looking forward to continuing to improve!
