I have learned that "Assumption and lack of communication are the number one relationship killers. We all perceive differently. We've lived different lives, we have different views. Understand that before getting angry at someone for not believing what you believe." ***
I was tagged by Dee @umbrellawithdee and Mon @monsflavors to share 10 facts about myself (started by Nisha @rainbowplantlife ). A bit of a challenge as I normally don't get too personal here.
1. My name is Christine, born in Malaysia, living in Melbourne. My user name "ysobc" has my Chinese initials YBC. It's a reminder to MYSELF and hopefully others to question reasons they're so busy "Why so busy?", to live life, spread love and kindness. In some ways, it's also my diary 😀. 2. The hardest lesson I've learnt is to love myself. It took me awhile to understand that I must first and foremost love myself in order to love others. This is an ongoing lesson. The word "selfish" does not exist in my dictionary 😁. 3. I don't drink coffee or tea except herbal occasionally. My favourite is peppermint, the stronger the better. Allergic to alcohol, water is my "thing" 🙄. 4. I'm "addicted" to ointments that smell like peppermint, menthol or eucalyptus. I place peppermint essential oils on my pillow. For me, they work better than lavender oil 🙃. 5. I have a weakness for fragrances and wear a different scent every day. I stopped counting at 50 😆. 6. I love shoes, infected my kids too 😄. 7. My favourite animal is German Shepherd, had one for 12 years. After Jules left, I couldn't bring myself to have another. I've a Beagle and a Pomeranian mix now, they belong to my kids 😍. 8. I wanted to be a fashion designer, Dad wanted me to do medicine. As a compromise, I did nutrition 😊. 9. I used to sing and was the school choir conductor. I couldn't now because I lost my high pitch after developing nodules on my vocal chords, I refused surgery. Yes, it's a sexier voice now 😉. 10. I believe my best attributes are my crazy sense of humour and positivity 🤗.
What about you? More in comments. Lots of love and blessings XOXO ❤️
