THE LAKE HOUSE by Marci Nault
My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Only in dreaming can we see how magnificent our lives are meant to be.
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. I believe perfect happiness is when you're comfortable in your own skin. There are perfect moments that are deliriously delicious; sitting around a campfire; seeing a beautiful landscape; eating really incredible chocolate; laughing with friends; curling up reading a book to a child; dancing with no worries about what others think; kissing someone you love; and so many more. But true happiness is when you can be by yourself and simply be content wherever you are.
Q. What’s your best quality?
A. My smile. I love life and tend to smile quite often even at strangers. Many times it opens up conversations and begins friendships.
Q. What do you regret most?
A. I spent too much time asking permission to have the life I wanted and thinking I had to please everyone else. I'm so happy I grew out of it.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. Tropical fruit. The fruit in Hawaii and S. America is pure heaven.
