Middle name Meme, Dubai 7's and Links

Rebecca tagged me for the middle name meme which requires that I list the rules first:

1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.
2. Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don't have a middle name, just make one up...or use the one you would have liked to have had.
3. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog-post containing your own middle name game facts.
4. At the end of your blog-post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

M - Mother. I see being a mother the most important role in life. It shapes much of how I act and think although I wasn't sure I relay wanted to be one until I was one.

A - Angels. I believe in angels especially guardian angels who I particularly relying when I am flying because I am terrified of flying and with my life flying is not an optional activity.

R - Rejection. I am no longer afraid of rejection. I think when I hit 40 this passed and I don't really care what most other people think of me, my life and my work. I finally know and love myself so what others like really doesn't matter.

I - Imagination. Imagination is a special gift and I hadn't realized how many people lack it until recently. It seems to get lost somewhere between childhood and adolescence.

E - Education. Education is so important and it comes in so many many forms. We have an obligation to ourselves and other to keep educating our minds and sharing it with others.

Right now I tag JJ, Cally, Fiona, Nell ,Ray-Anne

Now the Dubai 7's start today, Thursday - despite what the blog says - and believe it or not it is cloudy which I am sure has the players worried as last year they nearly got rained out I here! So here's hoping it won't rain as we will be there tomorrow and Saturday. I am hoping that the 7's won't let me down as I have such wonderful memories of them from when we lived here last!

Now onto a few links for you. I tagged Fiona above but it worth dropping by her blog because she is doing one of her wonderful writing craft sessions. Her insight into writing is brilliant. I now forget who lead me onto this blog but it worth scrolling through his posts during NaNoMo. Here's a quote from his last post which hit home:

"That's because writing is about setting, and reaching, goals.

Stories don't write themselves. They take a considerable time commitment. Often that commitment is hard to justify. But writers, real writers, make writing a priority. They make the time and the effort. "

Loved your answers, Liz.

Lane said...

Interesting answers Liz. Wish I could feel the same way about rejection. I'm well past 40 but can't pretend that rejection still doesn't sting:-(

Enjoy the Dubai 7's:-)

Rebecca Burgess said...

I love the name Marie, it's my daughter's middle name as well.

Wonderful answers.

Biddy, I will enjoy them for you and will try and wave to Matt upon the thousands :-)

Thanks Rachel:-)

It's funny Lane but I took my knocks early on and now it really doesn't bother me......this of course may change the more I write!

Marie was my paternal grandmother's name and I gave to it my daughter too Rebecca :-)

JJ said...

Oooh, thanks Liz. I loved your answers. I'll do this one over the next couple of days.


Ray-Anne said...

Hope you don't mind that I did not pass your tag on today but I know everyone is seriously busy. And I thought the Xmas rush only applied to shopkeepers!
Thanks for the break between editing.

Been playing catch-up so,
1. glad you're back safely.
2. Sorry about the rejection. It's odd what they like and don't like.
3. Loved your meme.
• Motherhood is too often underrated (or not rated at all).
• I love flying, but do not enjoy it, due to my fear of crashing; I want a flying angel.
• I am very much looking forward to the time when I really don't care what other people think, rather than just pretending I don't care!
• I also didn't know until recently that other people didn't have an imagination like mine.
• I agree exactly with your remarks about education.
Yep. Loved your meme!

Thanks for your kind comments Leigh!
