What do you prefer...spontaneity or stability? These two choices are on opposite ends of the spectrum for most people. Do you enjoy doing things when you first think of them? Or are you more comfortable looking into something before you make a move?

I'm totally the stable one...not that I'm "stable"...lol but I need stability in my life. Surprises are awful for me. It shocks my system and that only causes me more problems. I've had too many of those in my life to enjoy the uncertainty of spontaneity. My family knows this and some feel I'm a bore because of it but oh well...they're not me! smilewinkgrin

So are you someone who prefers a most stable style or do you like the fun and thrill of doing things 'right now'?

I like both, but my husband is definitely the stable one in ALL things. He researches and dissects everything. Makes for a very secure life. But sometimes, I'd like to be that fly by the seat of your pants gal. LOL.

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.

Stability. I don't do well with change. I used to be a lot more impulsive when I was younger, but then I changed. That's not to say that I don't have any impulsiveness left. I just prefer stability.

Unfortunately, stability is the name of the game here. There are times when I feel really really good and I'll suggest a walk or some "physical" activity, but for the most part, that's as spontaneous as it gets.

Surgeries: Appendix, Uterus, Nissen Fundoplication for GERD, Left Ovary, Gallbladder, Right Ovary, TVT

Medications: Oxycontin, Cesamet, Tramacet, Cymbalta, Flexeril and Clonidine plus Laxaday, Vitamin D and a Multi-Vitamin daily
