I’d regret not travelling more. There is a lot more of the world I want to see.
I would regret not going back to University and, getting either another BA degree or my Masters so that I could possibly retrain and do something I enjoy.
I would regret not being more adventurous. I panic about stupid little things so much that it puts me off trying new activities or, going out more. I’m always worrying about what could go wrong and, I should focus more on what could go well.
Jordan and me when we walking the Tongariro Crossing in New Zealand last year. It’s been voted one of the best day hikes to do in the world. It is amazing but, bloody knackering!
I’m not a good loser. I was never good at competitive sport, so when I lose something, anything really, it feels like everyone is judging me and, thinking how rubbish I am.
I am not good at socialising. I talk too fast, I stumble over my words and, I feel like no one really cares what I have to say. This then makes it really hard for me to be in social situations. The more I get to know someone, the easier it gets, but it doesn’t really fully go away.
I am stubborn and, this can cause issues. I do like to get my own way, even if I know I am being unreasonable.
I am not good at maintaining friendships. I get caught up in my own life and, my need for solitude. This means that sometimes I forget that I need to reach out to others.
I don’t take criticism well. I have this constant desire to do everything to the highest standard, so when something isn’t quite right, it hits me harder than it would someone else. It feels like I’m an embarrassment and, that nobody will put their trust in me again.
It doesn’t specify if this person has to be alive or dead, so I’ve chosen two people; one alive and one dead.
I would love to meet David Attenborough. I have loved his documentaries for so long and, he just reminds me of my Grandad. I just want to give him a hug.
I think he has had such an amazing journey and I know he must have some extraordinary stories to tell. I have read his book ‘The Adventures of a Naturalist’ and, I have got the second one to read.
He just seems like such a caring and compassionate person and, I would love to know more about him.
It’s so difficult to choose one person who has passed away. I could choose Freddie Mercury, Queen Victoria, Nelson Mandela and so on. It feels like if you just choose one person, you’re neglecting all the other people you could choose.
I’ve chosen Winston Churchill. I have read dozens of books written about Churchill and, the books he wrote as well. I know some people find him quite controversial. However, I think it’s important to remember him in the context of the time that he was living.
He did a lot of good, as well as some bad. He actually fought in WW1 following the Gallipoli disaster. He helped pioneer the NHS. He was vocal against Hitler for years and, nobody took him seriously. He led Great Britain during WW2 and, his speeches riled the nation.
I would have loved to have watched him a write a speech, see him working and, how he relaxed. I think he was a formidable character and I would have liked to have seen him in his prime.
I’m not sure how to answer this. I suppose I could make more time for the things that I actually enjoy doing.
My anxiety can cause me to stress quite easily which can put a dampener on things. I also have a tendency to worry far too much, which then causes me unnecessary stress.
Maybe try not to get stressed so much so that I can spend more time enjoying the little things?
I don’t really know what else I could write. I feel like this question is very similar to yesterday’s (How do you like to relax). Everything I do to relax I find fun and, for the most part I feel like there is a good balance.
Sometimes I feel like I spent most of my free time running around for everyone else, but that’s part of life. Sometimes other people need your time more than you do.
I’m joking. I don’t really drink that much anymore. Too many empty calories.
I relax by getting in some comfy, fluffy pyjamas, watching a good film or TV series that I enjoy. I like to lose myself in a book; that always makes me feel better.
Having something special for tea helps as well. You know when you’re having something you really enjoy, you’re in your comfy clothes, there’s something good on TV and, you can just let your hair down? That’s such a great feeling.
If I’m really struggling, an early night will help me to relax. You can’t beat the feeling of getting into a nice warm bed and, getting cosy for the night.
A good hug can also help me relax. Sometimes you just need to be held.
