12 Days of Christmas: Day 7- Dashing Through the Snow Book Tag

dashingthroughthesnow2

I was recently nominated by B from Getting Through Anxiety to do this tag and I thought it was perfect for my 12 days of Christmas!

Rules

Thank the curator (Astra @ A Stranger’s Guide To Novels). Thank you!

Tag five people to spread the Christmas joy

Have fun!

Questions

1. Name a book you would like to see under your Christmas tree.  Mindy Kaling’s Why Not Me– I read the first one last year and I really want to read her second one, she’s hilarious and inspirational in my opinion. 

2.) A book you’ll be reading over the Christmas season. I’m not sure, hopefully the one above, or maybe Grace’s Guide because I really need to learn how to be an adult. 

3.) Favorite Christmas movie. I’ll use this for promotion of my post earlier this week, but also I’ll answer it with probably The Polar Express. 

4.) Do you like snow?  No. I like when it looks pretty and I don’t have to go outside, however, there are very few times that I don’t have to go outside when it snows, therefore, I usually hate it. 

5.) Name a character you’d like to spend your Christmas day with. I think it would be fun to spend Christmas day with Harry and Ron when they stayed at Hogwarts, however, I would want to be the same age as them then, not the age I am now because that would be weird. 

6.) To give or receive. I love to give people Christmas presents, I think it’s because I like to shop. I also like to see the reactions when I get someone something they love. 

7.) What fictional place would you like to spend Christmas at? I guess I already answered this but Hogwarts. 

8.) Fondest Christmas memory? I just love spending Christmas Eve and day with my family every year. 

9.) Can you say Christmas tree ten times FAST in a row (pronouncing it correctly). Like B said I whispered it to myself and I could do it haha. 

I tag all of the Christmas lovers to do this post!

3 Days 3 Quotes Challenge: Day 2

“People get scared when you try to do something, especially when it looks like you’re succeeding. People do not get scared when you’re failing. It calms them. But when you’re winning, it makes them feel like they’re losing or, worse yet, that maybe they should’ve tried to do something too, but now it’s too late. And since they didn’t, they want to stop you. You can’t let them.”

~Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling is one of my favorite celebrites.  Not that long ago, I read her book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?  however, this quote is from her book Why Not Me? which is on my Christmas list. I honestly looked up “mindy kaling is everyone hanging out without me quotes” and this came up even though it’s from her second book, but it still spoke to me. I really agree with this quote, everyone is threatened by everyone, it’s because of who we are as a species.

I know that I will start a competition with everyone in my head. …Okay not everyone, but there are a few people where I just do this and I can’t help it, that’s why it’s my internal battle. It’s one of those things where I try not to do because I think it’s bad, but I still do it.

I think that once you start gaining success more people will start to do this with you. People are threatened by success, there is this belief that as soon as someone else starts to gain success there is less for you to gain, which is completely and utterly untrue. I struggle with this, I just have to keep in mind that just because someone is doing better than you, it doesn’t mean that their success will stop you from gaining success too.

Like she writes, their jealousness of your success does not mean you should stop your success. It’s going to let people plow right over you. Beware that people will be jealous of your success and will try to stop it.

I love Mindy Kaling and this quote, what are your thoughts?
