Prompt:How do you feel when it’s your birthday? Why?

I’ll be honest, I’m pretty selfish with my birthday. I celebrate for the entire month. I love my birthday, getting older doesn’t bother me. I like to use the time to celebrate myself, the things I have accomplished in the last year, and the people who have stood beside me though it.

Besides, cake! Anything with cake is good.

Prompt: What things do you think are beautiful?

Hand made quilts, waterfalls, easter eggs, rubies, trees, young children, flooded umbrellas in the rain, icicles dripping in the sun, oceans crashing on cliff sides, paisley socks, apples, burning sage, mountains in the distance covered in snow, flames in a fire pit, new growth in the spring, hot popcorn in a bowl, jungle cats playing, people who know what they want from life, false lily of the valley, zebras and other striped animals, xylophone players, cats of all shapes and sizes, glasses vases, big cakes with cheesecake frosting, never-never land, and many rivers converging in one place.

Prompt: What would happen if you could fly whenever you wanted?

I’d go up to WA on a bi-weekly basis. Every week I was off I’d take a trip, I miss it out there, WAY too much…

Prompt: What is something you dislike about yourself?

Honestly? Quite a lot. I have an awful body image. It’s a daily fight to feel good about myself, though my husband has helpped with that quite a bit.

I can be rather harsh sometimes, things come out of my mouth that hurt people around me and I don’t really think about what I’m saying. It’s like my lips work faster than my brain.

I’m over protective, of my family, of my friends, of my cats… I worry that I make the people in my life think I don’t believe they can take care of themselves.

I rarely backdown and my instinct to fight is just way too quick. It’s something I’ve been trying to control for years.
