The Fill-ins for Week 91 are:
1. Trust .
2. I would protest .
3. I have since .
4. Right now, I .
Here are my responses:
1. Trust is fragile, like glass. Once shattered, it might be possible to repair it with time and effort, but it will never be quite the same. I think most of us have had our trust betrayed at one time or another, but we still find the courage to trust again; we just learn to be more careful about who we place our trust in.
2. I would protest important issues that have a direct bearing on the quality of life, not only for myself but for others, especially for people and animals who are at the mercy of those in control. However, I am not one to protest every single issue that upsets me, I think that becomes a very negative way to live, always angry, and it dilutes your effectiveness if you try to focus on to many issues at once. Look for ways to protest that can actually make a difference, not just make noise. Be part of the solution!
3. I have been retired since July of 2016 when the law firm I was employed by decided to close the branch where I worked. It has had a big impact on our lives, both postive and negative, but overall it’s been a good thing.
4. Right now, I have so many things I need to do and want to do that I hardly know where to start. That seems to be the story of my life. I don’t understand the concept of boredom, there is always something to do… or we can learn to enjoy doing nothing at all for a bit, which is nice too!
