Past, Present, and Future

 

I always loved playing tag when I was a kid, probably because I was a fast runner and always caught those little buggers.  Well, I was tagged by Gina from A Muse In My Pocket for the Five/Five/Five blogging game (BTW, I just named it that).  Here’s the deal:  I have to answer the following five questions with five answers, and then tag five of my bloggy friends to carry on the game.

 

And so it goes…

Where were you five years ago?

 

♦  Five years ago was not a good time for me.  With chronic illness keeping my body down and being only a year on the other side of losing a business, a home, and my shiny, red expedition, I was a little depressed. 
♦  I was living in a home that had so many trees around it that during the summer was like being in a dungeon.
♦  I came up with the concept of Women’s (Enrichment) Life Link (the original name) for a women’s networking group.
♦  Wishing I had stuck to any of the career paths I’d been down in the past.
♦  Understanding that it would pass in time…and it did.

 

Where would you like to be in five years?

 

♦  Wow, I will be almost fifty in five years.  Having said that, I’d like to still look at least ten years younger than I am. 
♦   Well beyond the new author jitters and on the best sellers list, or at least on the bookstore shelves. 
♦  In charge of a thriving coaching business that includes international speaking engagements, publishing contract, and a real office.
♦  Living on the Pacific coast somewhere…California maybe.
♦  A really cool grandmother.

 

What is on your to-do list today?

 

♦  Ice and elevate sprained ankle.
♦  Practice patience with my son and two-year-old who are running the household today.
♦  Work on the final edit of my book that needs to get out the door.
♦  Meditate/pray for at least fifteen minutes.
♦  Come up with interesting things to do while stuck in bed.

 

What snacks do you enjoy?

 

♦  Cereal (especially Grape Nuts)
♦  Peanut Butter and an apple
♦  Banana
♦  Popcorn
♦  Kashi bar (the kind that tastes like coffee…mocha something)

 

What five things would you do if you were a billionaire?

 

♦  Surround myself with competent, trustworthy, wise people, and several body guards.
♦  Own homes in all my favorite places around the world.  Not sure where those places are yet, need some money to get there.
♦  Make sure that my children’s children were set for life…oh, yeah, and my children, too.
♦  Make other people’s dreams come true.
♦  Set up a teen foundation in my late brother’s name.  It would serve to develop the character of teenagers and teach young people how to be productive, giving, successful adults, as well as provide financial assistance to those in need.

 

Now, for the lucky five…

 

♦  Betty from Betty Ming Liu

♦  Laina from Laina Turner-Malaski and Chiczofrenic

♦  Jo-Lynne from Musing of a Housewife and Chic Critique (every time I say her name the Dolly Parton song, Jolene, rings in my head…I have to then sing it. See below for a little treat.

♦  Mel from 6 Feet Over

♦  Chelsea from Vicarious Chelsea

 

Enjoy the game, ladies.  I’m looking forward to reading your answers.

 

Be Beautiful-Be Creative-Be happy!

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone

  1. Oh, California! I think I’d like to live there too…if only for a little while.

    And I LOVE peanut butter. Shhhh…don’t tell, but sometimes I eat it plain, by the spoonful. 🙂
