Manic Monday #188

What does it mean to you to have courage?

To face up to what needs to be done and do it.

When I grew up I was a very shy girl.
I was told to respect older people and to be silent when I was in their company.
My grandmother thought that was not good, so she asked me to speak out, vent my opinion, and we had long discussions which sharpened my mind.

When I was at university people didn't consider me shy anymore. But in my heart I still was.

It's a part in my I won't loose, but I can live with it.
And I have to live with it, play with it, use it.
I'm the lion who has to protect my children and make the choices which are right for them, even when so called experts don't agree.

It's easy to follow, but I don't.
I have to stand up for my children, and I do.

The shy girl in me still feels amazed when I have the courage to be honest, straightforward and if needed when I have the courage to tell the world they're making decisions for my children which are not good at all.

And I'm speaking out for all children, if necessary.

Is your favorite time the past, present or the future?

The past wasn't good to me, with an abusive mother.
The present is difficult.
So the future os favorite.

I'm lucky to be a dreamer and to think, against all odds, I can still realize some dreams.

What makes you a good person?

Ask someone else, please.

Well, I'm honest, I hate arguing, I try to care.
I share the little I have, I'm good for Mother Earth.
I respect all living creatures, and I have rather high ethical standards for myself.
