Meet Anneresa!We caught up with new member Anneresa and asked a few fun questions. Get to know your new community member and don't forget to say Hello!
EP: Good afternoon and welcome. Wonderful to have you join us. Let's get started right away. If you could change one thing about your life, what would you change?
Anneresa: Pleasure to be here. Who wrote these questions. I would stop giving in to people and letting them push me around as I have always tried to do the right thing and give in to save the peace. Time after time this has been to my own demise and I really need to start looking after myself and stop putting everybody else first. I just feel so used and taken for granted it is time I lived for me.
EP: Intriguing answer. When you are 100 and looking back at your life, what do you want to be able to say?
Anneresa: I like how you think. I would like to be able to say I lived a good Christian life and I know I can leave this earth knowing my family and friends loved and respected me, but I also want to be able to say I learnt to be kind to myself and do something for me and achieved it.
EP: I see. What is the best advice you have ever received? Who gave it to you?
Anneresa: Great question. My parents taught me to always live by the ten commandments which I have always tried very hard to do and to "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" these are a wonderful guide to living but not to the point where constantly giving in and respecting everyone else's desires, wishes and opinions makes your own life miserable. Balance is imperative!
EP: Well put! I couldn't have said it better myself. Well, that concludes our up close and personal interview with Anneresa . Stay tuned readers, for our next New Member Interview.
