Share Your World 2015 Week 47

beautiful nature

In your native language which letter or character describes you best? Β Why?

Hmmm … I’d probably be a question mark followed by an exclamation point πŸ™„ Why? I’ve been called flamboyant, a bit difficult to please (hello! type A perfectionist!) eccentric, a watered down version of Simon Cowell, colorful, funny and with infectious enthusiasm. I think of myself as complicated, moody but also cheerful and fun-loving.

So yeah, definitely a question mark followed by an exclamation point πŸ™‚

What is your greatest extravagance?

It used to be books and perfume but now that I’m a SAHM I think it’s yarn and fitness wear/home exercise equipment. Then again, being in Indonesia is only temporary, so I suspect that when we move again to perhaps a more permanent place I’m going to develop other extravagances. (Likely!) πŸ˜€

Do you prefer exercising your mind or your body? How frequently do you do either?

I exercised both with gusto in my previous life but nowadays I’m leaning more towards physical exercise.

I prefer to exercise at home since it’s more time and cost efficient. I love to do strength and flexibility exercises. I’ve also recently discovered dance fitness (on YouTube) and I’m having the time of my life! XD On this note, I generally exercise 5 times a week, Mondays through Fridays.

List at least 5 things that make you laugh.

1. Anything comedy – movies, videos, shows, books, comics, and jokes (those that I like!)
2. Hearing my daughter’s laugh as we tickle fight before sleep
3. Coming up with funny voices and silly stories for my daughter’s plushies
4. Singing certain songs in a silly way when home alone – a good example would be Salve Regina from the movie Sister Act
5. Myself XD

Bonus question: Β What are you grateful for from last week ~

I’m always grateful and happy whenever I get new followers, and I got several more last week. (Warm welcome, beautiful people!) I feel so stoked each time somebody grants me entry to their reader.Β  THANK YOU! ❀

~ and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’ve discovered a 10 day flexibility challenge on YouTube that I’m quite excited to incorporate in my workout routine starting this week πŸ™‚ A good stretch is just, priceless!

Feel-Good Fridays

Laugh. Intentionally.


Last weekend, along with the rest of the world, I sat shocked and grieving in front of the TV listening to news reports of the terrorist attacks on Paris. My heart was heavy. My throat felt constricted. No words were spoken, but my small household was depressed.

In an unconscious effort to experience some emotional relief & diversion, I channel-surfed and came across the movie Nacho Libre starring Jack Black.

The sunny scenery, the innocent theme song and the peaceful setting of an orphanage in Oaxaca, Mexico quickly drew me in and became the diversion I was seeking. Before long “Ignacio’s” and “Esqueleto’santics had me laughing out loud. Hearing me, my husband and daughter joined me on the sofa and started enjoying the film too.

And just like that we could all breathe easy again.

This week’s feel-good Friday post will be just a short reminder for all of us of the gift of laughter.

It costs nothing but gives so much, to ourselves and the people we share it with. It does not erase whatever we might be grieving for, but it gives us lightness and healing.


They say a day without laughter is a day wasted.  Make your soul dance and schedule time to laugh out loud now. It can be as simple as watching a funny movie ❀
