Share Your World – 2/15/2021

This week’s questions posed by Melanie’s Share Your World are, as always, thought provoking.

QUESTIONS:

Do you feel you ask enough questions or do you settle for what you know? I most certainly do NOT feel I ask enough questions. Here is why though. My anxiety requires me to foretell the outcome of every possible situation. If I had the time, before making any decision, or acknowledging I know enough about a particular situation to make a 100% decision, I would never make that decision. The “what ifs” are endless. However, since this is not a reality for me and I often have to make quick decisions. I would say I settle for what I know more often than not. One of my habits is playing devil’s advocate in all situations. Whenever I am asked my opinion on something, I always lean the opposite of what I would generally choose. I am told this is “annoying a hell” by my husband. I guess, my simple answer to this question is “no, I do not feel I ask enough questions.”

From the other aspect of asking questions, I am told I ask too many. My example for this would be the difference between a man and a woman. Man: “So and so had a baby.” Woman: “Boy or girl?; When was the baby born?; Is the mother and baby healthy?; Did the baby have hair?; Do they need anything?” Man: “They had a baby, that’s all I know.” I don’t think I ask these questions to be intrusive, but, well, because they are very important to the situation. To me that is.

When did you fail to speak up when you feel you should have? I feel like I always fail to speak up when I should have IF it involves me. I second guess my worth or abilities, so I usually stay silent. I do not like confrontation when I am involved because I don’t do angry or upset well – I tend to cry and I hate that. I do speak up about the situation over and over again in my head with the “I should have”s flying around like crazy.

However if I see someone being bullied or abused, I rarely think before I speak up and jump into the situation without considering the potential outcome. No tears in that situation – but I do risk saying something that will get me in a lot of trouble.

When was the last time you felt lucky? I do not believe in luck, per se. I believe that we receive (or do not receive) only that which we are blessed with by God. If I miss being hit head on, it is by the Grace of God I was saved, not luck.

What is a boulder? A large well worn rock, typically not one that can be easily moved.


This week’s Gratitude Section is to share gratitude.

Based on the question about luck, I will use this opportunity to be grateful to God. So many blessings come our way and we don’t always recognize that His Power is All Power and nothing reaches us that is not intended for us. Our very breath we draw on each time is a blessing. I know not everyone feels as I do and I do not intend this to proselytize. This is what I wholeheartedly believe and that is that. I am grateful for all of His Blessings in my life.

Blogging gets the noise in my head out...at least for a little while. I use blogging to weed through all that noise and find the humor in each situation, even if it takes some time to find it. I am not selling anything, just sharing experiences as a mother, Amma, wife, paralegal, volunteer, Muslimah, sister, daughter, mother-in-law, woman.

  1. Thanks, SadiRose for Sharing Your World! I’m glad you share your obvious love of God’s blessings! That’s a point, in my opinion, of ‘speaking up’. Too many are afraid to say things about God at all, for fear of offending someone else OR being ridiculed. Good for you for being so bold! I heard it said once that men and women perceive things differently and that’s why a statement like “so and so had a baby” will evoke a lot of questions from the woman (being more nurture natured) and more ‘just the facts ma’am’ thinking by the man. Of course, there are all kinds of people who react in all kinds of ways, so no generalizing about that on my part! Have a blessed week!

    1. Thanks Melanie. Speaking up about God doesn’t worry me, but I am careful not to preach to others. I believe what I believe and I respect others for believing as they do – whether or not I agree. If someone wants to discuss or even debate religion with me, I am all for it, but it has to be done from a place of mutual respect, in my opinion.
