Wouldn't It Be Nice

1. What's the nicest thing a complete stranger ever did for you?

I have to think about this.
In my life I've met many people and among them were very kind ones.

I remember I blogged about the computer of my autistic son, and that we experienced financial problems to replace it. He used it all the time.
She donated 25 dollars and bridged the gap so well, that we could buy a computer for him. he valued it so much that he washed his hands every time before using it, so it wouldn't get dirty. :)

2. What one thing always speaks deeply to you, to your spirit, no matter your mood or what else is going on in your life?

I'm a buddhist.
I've always been, but I haven't known it for many years.
Deep in myself I experience a deep rest. It's the place where I'm rooted. It's where I know I'm OK, I'm a good person. It gives me strength, inspiration.
We've gone through a very bad time due to other people, we've experienced many emotions, but no matter what happened I felt that strong inner rest, the knowledge we did nothing wrong and we're good people.
What really moved me and kept me going was that inner rest, but also the knowledge that we share our experiences with lots of people all over the world, and that our experiences can be used to improve lives of others. That universal bond is very strong.

3. How many jobs have you held in your life? How many of those were part of your chosen career field?

I didn't count them.
My career was being a mother. That was my choice.
My second career is being a psychologist.
Both are complimentary and feed each other.
I haven't worked for payment in a long time, and I don't really mind.

4. Of those jobs, how many did you leave voluntarily?

I've always left my job voluntarily except one before I got pregnant. They didn't give me a new contract because of cut backs.

5. How did you discover Saturday 9? How long have you played? (Thank you for joining in!)

This is my 110th time of participation.
I think I discovered it at another blog.

6. What's the worst beverage you've ever tasted?
You mean alcohol?
Wine...I don't like wine.
I'm OK with a good old port or a good old wisky. Without rocks.

7. Is there anything in life you are "certain" about? Firm in your beliefs? Strong in your convictions?

I'm certain it's all relative and it all will pass.
Maybe we feel important, but we're just a grain of sand on a beach. How many billion people are there on the world and in history?

8. How did you come up with the title of your blog's posts?

Whatever pops up in my head is the title. Unless a meme has a name. :)

9. Would you consider yourself a good cook?
