1. If you could master one skill, knowing you will succeed, what would it be and why?
Play the piano or the guitar like a master! I love music. I feel it to my very core. I cannot imagine the rush of being able to play anything and everything on these two instruments!
2. If you could be in any book, which would it be and what role would you have? Honestly I have never given this any thought.
To me it is like wishing to be someone else. I don’t believe in wishes and believe everyone should find all the things that they love about themselves and be happy to be who they are.
3. What’s one secret you’ve never told anyone?
It wouldn’t be a secret if I shared it, now would it?
4. What is your definition of living?
As someone that has lost time due to an accident, due to morphine and cancer-my definition might differ from most. What is living? It is finding out who you are. Living is embracing all the good and all the bad that has ever happened in your life and turning all of it into lessons and growing. Living is being true to yourself. Living is finding silver linings in dark clouds. Living is all the little things that most people take for granted. Living is making time for those you love and making memories. Living is going on little adventures. Living is looking for beauty in all things. Living is what you want it to be. When your head hits the pillow at night and you lay there smiling about your day-then you know you are living right.
5. Has life turned out as you thought it would when you younger? Close? How is it different?
Honestly, I have no idea how I thought my life would be once I grew up. I was just trying to get through each day growing up. I have an older brother that I do not speak of. He was a drug addict. So things were not ideal. It was damn hard actually. I never knew each day what was going to happen. So I never thought about it really. I just wanted to not have to worry what the day would bring.
6. What’s your opinion on who you are as a person?
Who am I? I am a mother, a sister, a daughter, a cousin, a friend. I am a fighter, a smart-ass, a giver, an animal lover. I am so many things. I have many roles in my life. I am many things to many people. Who am I to me? I guess what I see is a woman that has great strength and tenacity. I lost my belief in myself for a bit. After my accident and morphine with the memory loss. I was so unsure of myself. Of who I was. I doubted my own strength. I don’t doubt myself anymore and I most certainly do not doubt my strength. I call the shots in my life now. What I will and will not welcome into it. I am a creator. I am a writer. I have so many different sides. I love to laugh and have a vulgar sense of humor. But then I can turn around and have a deep conversation on religion. I love quotes and poetry but I equally love memes. I am a mess one minute and got my shit together the next. I excel under pressure. I am me. I am Laura. I am a work in progress. As long as there’s progress.
