Janera's Wednesday Wickedness is based on words by the decidedly non wicked Queen of All Media, Oprah Winfrey.
1. “I don't think you ever stop giving. I really don't. I think it's an on-going process. And it's not just about being able to write a check. It's being able to touch somebody's life.” What was the last thing that you did to help somebody’s life?
I engaged in some emergency babysitting today.
2. “Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.” How long have you ever held your breath?
I don't know. I don't know how I would know.
3. “As you become more clear about who you really are, you'll be better able to decide what is best for you - the first time around.” At what point do you think that you really decided who you were?
I'm still trying to figure that out.
4. “The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” At what time of the year do you think you celebrate your life the most?
Still waiting to celebrate my life, too.
5. “So go ahead. Fall down. The world looks different from the ground.” Are there times when you thought you had fallen down and learned something about yourself?
I've fallen down a lot. What I've learned is that it hurts.
6. “Devote today to something so daring even you can’t believe you’re doing it.” What was the last thing you did where you thought that you could not believe what you were doing?
I regularly can't believe I'm dumb enough to do some things.
7. “Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.” Do you think that you must struggle to become strong?
I'm still waiting to become strong, too.
8. “Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.” Do you feel that life’s experiences always prepare you for what there is to come?
So far, nothing has prepared me for what winds up coming.
9. “The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.” Can only a rich person feel this way? What do you think Oprah means by this?
Rich people are the only ones who can do a lot of things. I am a firm believer that you should try to live the life of your dreams. I have not lived up to this advice in my own life. Rich people are, however, often the only people who can afford to chuck it and pursue their dreams.
10. “I do not believe in failure. It is not failure if you enjoyed the process.” Do you believe in failure?
Every day of my life, baby. Every day of my life.
