Q: What gives you joy, Nonnie? What events, activities accomplishments, people fill you with pleasure?
A: Rebecca, you should already know that the first on my list of things that give me joy is my wonderful family. Reading and writing both bring me joy, exercise brings me joy, cleaning my home, walking around just basking in the glow of my beautiful home…all these little things bring me GREAT joy! Being of service to others is also high on my list of things that bring me pleasure.
Q: As busy as you are, how do you take care of yourself, mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually?
A: Well, I nourish my mind with ideas and I allow myself the freedom to let my thoughts wander. When they do, they return with a storehouse of wonderful ideas for me to use in my quest to help others reach that pinnacle of success! I nourish my body with exercise and clean eating for the most part. I meditate and pray, twist myself into knots with Yoga and Pilates…and I try to live an honest and “true” life…I practice what I preach.
Q: Looking back at your life, what 3-4 things (happenings, philosophies or people) gave you the confidence and strength to start RRBC?
A: Let me share this quote from my site, www.BooksByNonnie.wordpress.com: “As a child, no one ever told me I couldn’t, therefore, in all things I THINK I CAN.” Rebecca, I can hear my mom saying, even now: “She was the only child I had who demanded things!” “She was the only baby I had that came out breach.” I take all these things to mean, that even as a child, I knew that I was destined to do great things, because even as a child, I expected it…demanded it, even. I came out feet first because I knew that these feet were made for some serious miles!
Q: In ten words or less, what do you want written on your tombstone?
A: Here lies the remains of Nonnie Jules, she lived her life by her own rules. She wanted to serve and serve she did. This appearance…her farewell bid. OK, maybe I wouldn’t have it to read that way, how about simply: A full life lived, in service to others.
Q: You have commented about your wonderful husband and happy marriage. What advice would you give to newlyweds.
A: You’ve misquoted me, Rebecca. I said I was happy. I can’t speak for him…LOL!
