Why do we dream? I think we dream because we have so many ideas in our heads and so many things that we think about. Our days are chock full of stimulation, there is no way that the conscious mind can tend to it all in a day. The thing I don’t understand is how they are supposedly so short even though it may feel like a dream lasts all night!
Do you think a person’s name influences the person they become? I’m not sure if it influences who they become but I think it can influence how they interact with others. I suppose that does affect how they grow and develop. My mom used to say that kids with strange names had it harder in life because people would always wonder where their names came from, what they meant, if they were an indicator of who the person was. I don’t believe it to that extent but I do think that looking to make your child the most original with a weird name can be confusing to them when they start school and feel like they are so different because all the other kids have “normal” names.
Does hardship make a person stronger? (example: What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger) I don’t think it is the hardship that makes you stronger, it is how you deal with it and choose to learn from it. My life is very different than it was three years ago and although it has been difficult I don’t think it has made me stronger. In actuality it has almost weakened my strenght.
Why do we judge ourselves by our intentions, but judge others by their actions? Because you can’ read others’ minds to know their intentions, you only see what they do…how they act.
I am so grateful for my daughter, for David, for Laurette, and my dad. They make it all worth it!
