My answers:

Hehehe so, as promised, here are my answers: 

Maria asked: 
It's very easy to decide you are going to change your life. It's another to actually do it. When you hit the low points, how do you keep on going?

My answer: 
Hehehe this was one of the most tricky questions I've ever gotten. My quest to change my life started when I'd come as close to rock bottom as I ever want to go. My only thought at that stage as I crawled out of my hole was that I never wanted to be there again. The question was how to avoid it in the future. 

After a lot of thinking and soul searching, I realized that no matter what, I had to go after my dreams, because when my dreams die, so does my spirit. So I had a deep and long talk about it with God and I struck off on the road of achieving my dreams. 

And you know what? The low points that come from set backs on my journey never come close to where I've been when I was following someone else's dreams. 

So to keep going is sort of easy...

Suze asked:
Strawberry, vanilla or chocolate? 

My answer: 
Strawberries with cream, vanilla ice-cream, milkshakes and milk, chocolate anything else except meat and veggies. 

Claudia asked: 
Favourite flower? 

My answer:
A white orchid. 

Donna asked: 
E book, or print?

My answer: 
To read, print. To sell... anything that gets my book out there. 

Caitlin asked: 
What hobbies do you have? If you have time for any in between revisions!

My answer: 
I also take solo lessons and ballroom classes, read and learn languages. I try to squeeze time in for everything. ;-)

Susan asked:
Do you have any pets? What are their names?

My answer: 
Yes I do: Three dogs (Jill, J.R. and Ben), three cats (Smokey, Lotty and Sylvester) and one African Grey parrot (Robbie). 

Joyce asked: 
I see that you live in South Africa. Upon reading that the word "Apartheid" pops into my head. How do you see the political state of your country as opposed to a few years ago. Is the country more open to people of different races?

My answer:
This is a tricky question. Also one that I will answer in private to anyone who wants me to, as it will take up a blog series of its own. 

So there you have it. A little bit of me in a blog post. 

I am passing this award to all of you who asked me a question. X

Chocolate meat? :P

Caitlin said...

You'll have to educate me, what are solo lessons? Ballroom lessons sound pretty awesome, though. :)

And what languages do you know or are currently learning?

Haha sorry to pile on more questions!

Langley said...

Very cool that you have 3 dogs, 3 cats and a parrot. I love animals!

Claudia Moser said...

Nice answers and I have 7 orchids at home, one white :)

Helen Ginger said...

Do Smokey, Lotty and Sylvester get along with Robbie? Or perhaps that question should be: does Robbie get along with them?

I always find it amazing how we manage to convince ourselves someone else's dreams are also our own.

I'm still working on that myself, on a daily basis, and often it's the low points that cause the bigger changes.

It was great to read your answers! :-)
