I would like to ask you guys for some feedback on two Support Groups I am considering adding!
One is a group for those who, like me, are by nature introverts. Not shy or withdrawn or anti-social; (though these are unfortunately some of the labels most associate with the introverts personality), but powerful in the unique way we interact with the world around us-and the world within us!!
The other group is a place where anyone and everyone can go to for a good laugh! I know humor is a very diverse creature. What is funny to me may just be plain dumb or tasteless to someone else. (Having just added the "Grateful Tool" to my toolbox made me see that having a good old, down to your toes, sides hurting, laugh out loud moment is something I am Grateful for!!) Sometimes, just the act of telling (or typing) a good joke, a funny observation, or sharing a funny picture or video that made you laugh, can make you laugh all over again, even if no one else "gets it"!
I will not pre-screen entries, nor will I set the "approve members" option for this group. I trust that all members of TTL are compassionate, intelligent, mature adults who, regardless of the type of things they find funny, will self regulate themselves on the content they submit. BOTTOM LINE: If you can stand in the middle of a room filled with at least two males, and two females, of every race, color, nationality, background, political affiliation, religion, social status AND their minor children, each armed with an extremely over-ripened tomato**, poised to lob at you, and you are still comfortable sharing your funny-then share!! You do not have to elicit happiness or laughter; but you MUST NOT elicit sadness or tears!! (**this does not apply to those who may find being showered in vegetables that have gone bad enjoyable**)
Thank you, TTL members, in advance for any and all your input!!
There are things in my life that I want to change. Hurts and fears from the past cloud my todays and tomorrows sometimes. "Professionals" think that by taking a pill, or "baring" my soul one hour a week is all that is needed. My intelligence and intuition forbid me to accept such "easy fixes". I am not looking for something to "ease my symptoms", I am looking for the "Tools" that will render my symptoms OBSOLETE!
You are offered your dream job. What job is it?:
Freelance researcher, problem solver, information collector and analyzer.
I don't know if there is a job title that fits this; but the ability to sift through books, files, and internet resources on a subject, gathering information from all sides, summarizing each view, and getting paid to do all this without having to "clock in or out"!
My favorite wild animal is:
Why (describe as much as possible):
I have collected them since I was a teenager. They are birds that can't fly; yet they can swim. They are faithful to their annual mates. Once they have choosen their mate they work together through the process of nesting, hatching, and caring for their chick. They are beautiful and majestic as adults, and cute, fat, and fluffy as babies. What's not to love?!
My favorite domestic animal is (if you choose dog be specific with breed etc):
I really don't have a favorite.
Not too big on domestic animals.
A famous Chef will prepare anything you want. What do you order:
It would depend on my mood at the time. I don't really have any favorite foods. I rarely eat a large meal. I usually eat four or five small meals a day.
I don't think about food all that much. I like simple things that are quick and easy so I can move on to other things.
Five people either dead or alive you would have at your fantasy dinner party::
My Mother, My Father, My Son, My Daughter, and My Husband.
My mom and dad were in an auto accident in 1989. My mother was killed instantly. My father died six months later due to his injuries. To have them meet my 14 yr old son and my 3 yr old daughter, and vise versa,....I can not even attempt to put into words how that would be. As for my husband, to see him in the "hot seat" under my parents gaze, would do him some good. I think after 5 minutes with them he would understand more about me than he has been able to gather on his own in 5 years.
If a pilot would fly you anywhere you want, you would go to:
My car and take a long road trip across the US!
(I have never flown. The thought of going somewhere that I can't get to by car would mean a very long flight. I am not afraid of heights. I am not afraid that the plane might crash. Knowing that once the door is closed and the plane is in motion I have no control. I can not opt out, change my mind, open a window, or pull over to take in the scenery!
My perfect slice of pizza is:
Thin, crispy crust, cheese, pepperoni, fresh tomato, green pepper, and mushroom, sprinkled with crushed red pepper chips!
You are at a bar. You order this drink:
I don't know if it has a name:
1 shot vodka
1 shot Midori mellon
2 shots orange juice
1 shot pineapple juice
and a splash of grenadine
You are at a coffee shop. What coffee or tea do you order:
Does Hot Cocoa with xtra marshmellows count?
If a genie could grant you three wishes they would be (separate by commas):
I wish that...when I die it is without regrets-mine or my loved ones, every single human being on earth from now until the end of time strive to create worth not wealth-work for purpose not possessions-and most of all know that the only precious things the truely important things in life are given to you not gotten by you,...(to be continued)
You are going on a long road trip and you can only bring three CD's. Which ones do you bring
(separate by commas):
AudioBook-Life the Universe and Everything-Douglas Adams(I'm taking the liberty of counting this as one),...to be continued
Any character I could be from a movie, TV show or book would be:
Are you kidding me?! A girl born and raised in the South, has everything, then has nothing, gets it all back again, wants what she cant have, doesnt want what she has, then realizes that she really does want what she has, but what she has "Frankly, My Dear, I don't give a damn." has had enough!! Strength of mind and resolve in matters yet misguided completely when it came to love.
