Blog Challenge: Q&A

Thanks to Female2Female for this blog fodder. I'm to answer these questions and then pass them on to 4 bloggers.

1. If you could give the world one piece of advice, what would it be? It's all about balance, of course!
2. If you could have a room full of any one thing, what would it be? I'm going to assume that it can't be people, since it specifies "thing," so I'm going to go with books.
3. What do you value most in other people? Empathy.
4. If you could only see black and white except for one color, what color would it be? Blue, so I could still enjoy water and sky.
5. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? Ha - just one?!? More patience.
6. If you could choose one of your personality traits to pass on to your children, what would it be? I already see certain traits in both of them that they got from me, but if I could choose, I would choose my work ethic.
7. What would you attempt if you knew you could not fail? Running for office.
8. Would you rather teach a young child to read or have to learn again for yourself? Teach a child.
9. What is the best advice you’ve ever given and received? As far as advice I've given, that's a hard one because what I might think is good advice might not be what the recipients felt! But I'll go out on a limb and say The Power of Negative Thinking. Received? Going back to something I said in Re-Examining an Old Label, during the worst of my angry, bitter days, a friend at work reminded me that it's okay to empty my bucket. She encouraged me to cry and feel so that I could go home to my girls without having all that tension inside me.
10. How would you like to die? As swiftly and painlessly as possible.

And now for the bloggers I'm tagging:

SingleMomMindy, because she recently tagged all her readers, so I'm considering this my tag-back.

Danielle at Mid Life Mommy

Cat at Young Old Crone

Florinda at The 3 R's Blog

Oh, and of course, if you weren't tagged, but still want to play along, please feel free!!

I liked the question about what one color would you want to see besides black and white. I honestly don't know what I would choose!

I would also choose more patience for myself!
