How to win?
Just tell me about a time when you felt especially mighty — either physically, mentally or emotionally.
Here’s my own answer:
“I felt anything but mighty when my Dad unexpectedly died of heart failure in 2007. I felt even more destroyed when just two months later, my Mom passed away from complications of a stroke, and no doubt, a broken heart over the loss of her husband and companion of more than 50 years. And I felt at my very lowest, when just a year later, I was laid off from the newspaper job that I loved. To lose in succession the two people who had been in my life the longest, as well as the job in which I’d worked the most years in my career, was unbelievably and undeniably devastating. But I told myself I would not let any of that define me nor get the best of me. I set out to reinvent myself in a new chapter in my life that I hoped would continue to do my parents and family proud. That chapter is still very much a work in progress. But I feel mighty at having come so far already.”
Winner of the Previous Contest: In last week’s Food Gal contest, I asked you to tell me something you’re a wimp about and something you’re totally intense about. The best answer receives samples of the new Levels packaged coffee by Seattle’s Best Coffee.
Krystal, who wrote, “I am a huge wimp about stray cats. It seems weird…and absolutely wimpy but I once had this cat that adopted my backyard as its new home (probably since we gave it food…oops) and it would terrorize me! It was hide in my backyard and wait for me to come out and pounce at my feet and hiss! It would also hide under my car and wait for me to go to the drivers seat and jump out from underneath. Ever since whenever I walk by a stray cat or see one I get totally freaked out and think it will pounce!
On the other hand I am super intense at homemade birthday cards and cakes. I will never buy someone a homemade card or cake and I have the best time creating totally unique and delicious cakes to give away! I love making new birthday cakes decorated to each person’s personality and hobbies! Birthdays are a really special time and I am always intense about making them super special for the ones I love. It is a fun intense nonetheless.”
