I figured out the point of this meme- it makes you post! My answers to [livejournal.com profile] spookyfish24 follow:
Resiliency (there are SO many adjectives that fit here)
Wow- what do you say to that one. I seen shit man, and lived to tell about it? The definition of resilient is: "Able to recover quickly from misfortune; able to return to original form after being bent, compressed, or stretched out of shape. A human ability to recover quickly from disruptive change, or misfortune without being overwhelmed or acting in dysfunctional or harmful ways. As in "Our team showed great resilience," or "Our team had good resiliency."
It comes from a latin root that means to leap back. I think I am resilient, but I am not sure where that comes from.

I admit it. I have a soundtrack to my life. I can't sing, and I was a mediocre musician, but give me notes floating through the air. I have an excellent sense of rhythm and pitch. It is frustrating that I have no talent. My taste is eclectic and runs from classical to industrial. And yes, one time in band camp... One of my early boyfriends was the tuba player.

"People, people who need people. Are the luckiest people in the world." Oh, not those peeps, but the Easter candy? I don't like them anymore, but I used to love them and wait for them in anticipation every year. Then I would open the package and let them get stale and crunchy. I am weird. I embrace this.

It is a defining role in my life. I was first, having Konal at 20. [livejournal.com profile] spookyfish24 followed me quickly, though. My focus changed quickly. Most of my life decisions are made focusing on what is best for our family as a unit and my children. I love being a mother, even though it is a hard, hard journey. I can't wait to try again. I have drunk the kool-aid and love it!

Wow! I mean, uh, WOW! I don't feel successful. I keep fucking things up- school, kids, life, relationships. I think it is more related to number 1. Somehow I bounce back and try again. I do have good friends, who love me warts and all and sense when I am isolating myself. I have wonderful family, even those related by blood. I have a network- professional, personal and support. I wonder if I just have trouble applying the word to myself.
