Great Goddess Interviews: Pattie Lee 09/27/2011
What do you feel has been your greatest achievement so far in life? I think my greatest achievement is getting where I am right now. So much has happened where I could have just given up, but I kept fighting, I kept going. I'm here, I have scars but I'm whole.
If you were reincarnated into an animal, which one would you be and why? I would probably be a cat. I have a real affinity with cats. I tend to prefer their company over other pets. They're deep thinkers like I am.
What part of nature do you feel most connected to if at all? I feel most connected to the shore. Like, to the beach and the waves. I was on vacation in Denmark where we drove up the coast and I was able to stand on the shore of the North Sea. My first real experience with such a vast body of water. The tranquil sound of the surf and the beauty began my love affair with the sea.
What do you feel is your current 'big life lesson'? You know, the one you keep having to learn over and over. I think my lesson is that I don't have to do it all alone. It's OK to lean on others to find strength, to find comfort, to find love. So many events in my life have shown me I'm not alone and I'm not as strong as I think I am or as strong as I let others think I am. Asking for help, leaning on friends is nothing to be ashamed of, your friends WANT to help you, they want to be needed.
Who is your favorite person in the Twitterverse and why? My favorite person in the Twitterverse is @simadahl. She has become a mentor for me. By just being who she is she's helped me realize I'm worth more than I give myself credit for.
Tell us one strange-ish fact about yourself... I can recite all 50 states in alphabetical order, blindfolded, with my hands tied behind my back. I can also place all 50 states on a map... I'm good with geography.
