Getting to Know Shauna Bowling

Where it all happens....
Where it all happens.... | Source

Meet Shauna....

Over these weeks, I have discovered that Shauna Bowling is a woman after my own heart. She wears her rose - colored glasses 24 / 7 and always reminds me of the power of positive thinking and determination.

Join us as we learn (even more in Part 2) about Shauna and what puts a sparkle in her step:

The times I feel most relaxed are....

I love sitting outside. I have a little bistro set on my front porch and a gazebo with an adjacent outside living room I've created on my back porch. My property is abundant with trees. I love to have my morning coffee outside and watch Mother Nature's world wake up. I have hawks, red-headed woodpeckers, owls, hummingbirds, butterflies, squirrels, raccoons, opossums, armadillos, bats.... so much nature at my feet! Evenings are nice too. I love the sound of the night bugs singing in the trees.

The times I feel saddest are...

Other than the death of a loved one or beloved pet, I can honestly say I don't really ever feel sad. I feel "down" from time to time, but that's my psyche's signal for me to take a break and "empty out".

Something I'd like to teach others...

Always be true to yourself. You cannot be there for others, or offer advice and guidance if you are not first true to yourself. You must be honest with yourself and admit when you are wrong or when an unpleasant situation, directly affecting you (or others), occurs and causes strife. You need to take a look. One thing I've learned through life, is to go inside and ask myself, "what is the common factor?" in whatever situation it is that is making me unhappy or causing a down slide or causing it to perpetuate. The answer is ALWAYS, me! Granted, some things happen as a result of circumstances beyond our control, but allowing it to keep you from living life, from moving on and getting back on track is because you allow it to debilitate your momentum and become an excuse for not moving forward.

See it, accept it, pick yourself up by the bootstraps and fix it!

Additionally, I have a self-proclaimed motto by which I live: if it feels good do it, if it doesn't don't and when it stops, quit!

My secret passion ... my dream job....

Oh, this is a no brainer! My passion is writing. My dream is to once again become a full time writer and forgo my 8 - 5 job working for someone else. I have the drive, the equipment, the talent and the desire. I'd better get kickin' 'cuz I'm on the downside of the hill! (you know, over-the-hill!)

Most hated gift I ever gave someone ...

I wouldn't know. If I've ever given something someone hated, they were gracious enough to hide their dismay!

The gift I could have done without ...


If you peeked in my junk drawer, you'd be surprised to find ...

Ummmmm, I'm kind of anal. I don't have a junk drawer! Everything has it's place in my house!

My date from Hades ....

I don't know if I should go there. Let's just say, I feared for my life.

My worst/ or funniest vacation story ....

Growing up, we didn't take family vacations. We traveled to visit family, as my mom is one of ten. There was always someone to catch up with.

As an adult, I've never been in the financial position to take an actual vacation. I take a day here and a day there. I know, dull, huh?

Bravewarrior and Axel
Bravewarrior and Axel

A life goal on my bucket list ....

To actually take a vacation!!! Ha ha!

As previously stated, I want to become a full time writer. I have a novel in my head that I'd like to put on paper, then in print and become successful.

I'd also like to jump out of a plane (parachute!! parachute!!), but I don't know if I'd actually have the balls to do so at the nth hour!

What I most look for in a friend...

Understanding, patience, being able to sit quietly together without feeling uncomfortable and not being afraid to let me know when I've pissed them off.

Something I will never part with...

My cats. I chose a husband over my cats once. I ended up firing him. My cats are true. Lesson learned!

A life lesson I will never forget....

I actually have two that come to mind. The first is, cocaine kills. I had a bout with addiction and it killed my sense of responsibility. It killed my drive and credibility. I, fortunately, recognized what I was doing to myself, pulled myself up by the bootstraps and removed myself from temptation. In 1987 I moved to an area where I knew no one because I couldn't "just say no". I live in this area still today and gave birth to my son 20 years ago. He's got a stable life, having lived in the same house since he was two.

I've also had a dear friend die from cocaine overdose. Bad, bad news! Trust me folks, just say no!

The second, is don't go into debt to compensate for a spouse's inability to keep a job and help with finances. I'm still paying for it, which is the hugest (is that a word??) obstacle I have to overcome if I want to achieve my dream of becoming a full time writer. Think ahead. Have a dream on the horizon and don't make choices that make the climb harder! Choose a life partner who's a partner, not a cling - on!

The worst part of getting older...

The body parts don't keep up with the mind! Don't squat down - unless you can spring load yourself up off the floor! I've gotten pretty good at it actually!! :)

A writing lesson I learned the hard way...

Don't send emails telling how you really feel when you have a buzz on! Words can be wise, but they are also deadly weapons! If you have a bitch to bitch, wait a day before you hit the send button!

My favorite movie and why...

Love Story. I've seen the movie 8 times and read the book 11 times when I was in Catholic school. I love movies that make me cry. Crying is cleansing.

Another movie I watch whenever it comes on TV is Forest Gump. It's just an awesome story and takes place in the 60's. Magical times when so much was going on and America wasn't afraid to speak. And the music was awesome! In the 60's, even the music had a voice.

Forest Gump himself, although fictional, is the epitome of overcoming the odds to reach for and grab your dreams! He loved unconditionally and forever, his compassion was unwavering and his disability was enough so he wasn't wary of being himself (unlike we who have been conditioned to reach for dollars, forsaking strengthening our souls). In other words, he had the innocent heart and soul of a child, but the bravery of a lion! He cared and persevered even when he was turned away (Major Dan,Jenny). He beat the odds every single day of his life. Isn't it ironic that his innocence and keeping a promise to his "very best friend" made him a fortune! I think there's a lesson here, don't y'all? Very inspirational, not to mention phenomenal portrayal by all the actors!

What subjects / genres do you enjoy reading/ about ?

I love mysteries, suspense and the paranormal. My favorite authors are Dean Koontz, John Grisham and Iris Johansen. Stephen King, in his early days is a favorite, but once he changed his genre with the Dark Tower series, he lost my interest. I'm not much into the sci - fi genre.

What would be a subject/ genre that you would like to read more/ about...

I'd like to read viable solutions to overcoming/eliminating current debt. With the increase in the cost of living, increased interest rates, increased taxes, being a single parent and having a stagnant paycheck (no raise in over 4 years), I've had to "supplement" my income with credit cards. My current unsecured debt is almost as much as my annual salary. If I could eliminate my debt, I could put the necessary energy into fulfilling my dream of becoming a full time writer.

Billybuc wrote a hub on downsizing, ridding yourself of unnecessary "things", which was inspirational and informative, but doesn't address my current situation. On top of my unsecured debt, I have 13 years left on my mortgage and a car payment. I need real life solutions for those of us who are in real financial trouble!

Can you take us to a favorite piece of writing on HubPages by you that does not get much traffic...

Hmmm. I had to go to "my account" to look that up. I'd have to say, The Wind - Written in 1983

Thank you, Shauna....

Of all The Supremes songs I know and have learned for this series, "The Happening" most spoke to me of you, Shauna.

Thank you for agreeing to this interview and sharing yourself with us.

I don't know why it took me so long to get to this one. What a beautiful woman! She has visited someof my work and I have appreciated her comments. These answers as SO different from mine. Yet I see a spirit and a heart that puts me at ease. I would love the chance for the three os us to sit and chat over coffee or tea. Something tells me it would be great.

Mary, I appreciate your comment. I guess you hit me on a good day. My score ranges from 92 - 96. I think is has to do with postings. The more you post, your score goes down until you get comments and/or followings. I've been trying to figure it out myself!

It was nice to meet bravewarrior. Any Hubber with a score of 95 is one I'd like to be friends with! I admire bravewarrior for her honesty. She sounds like a wonderful person.

I have to go and acquaint myself with her.

Moonlake, Axel is a purebred Flame Point Himilayan. I have to have him shaved once a year because he gets matted. I've discovered male Himilayans have course hair and does not brush easily. If you're considering the breed, stick with females. I've never had a problem with their coats!

Shauna - I wanted to get this out to you before we lost power as the lights are starting to flicker.

You just gave me goosebumps! Obviously a much higher source is letting you know just how gifted you are.

Blessing to you and your friend from Upstate loves ya a bunch.

bravewarrior profile image

bravewarrior 4 years ago from Central Florida

Beckie, I feel the same way about you. I was so distraught when you left us for a while. You are very dear to me. I've imagined us sitting on my porch taking in nature and talking more than once. You blew me away with 'she is the possessor of the white light'. Heaven, one of my other dear friends I've met thru HP calls me 'Light-Bringer'. That is just too weird and amazing at the same time.

You warm my heart continuously, Beckie. I count on you for my lightning bugs! Love ya lots, Beck!

I just found this and so glad I did or I never would have forgiven myself for not commenting. I had the beautiful pleasure of meeting Shauna when I was very new to Hub Pages. God blessed me because you couldn't ask for a kinder soul to welcome you aboard. She has always been an uplifting and inspirational source to me and I have grown to have a fond love for her as a dear friend. Every so often lightening strikes and God opens a doorway for a special soul to bless your path. That is my Shauna and I cherish her every day. She is a possessor of the white light.

She has just recently made a courageous and brave step towards her writing career and I am so proud of her. She truly is a Brave Warrior.

I am sending an eternal flight of fireflies to you Shauna.

Thank you Maria. It was a wonderful interview.

Gypsy, does Sid have long hair? My other two are Sheba and Shiloh. They came from the same litter but Shiloh looks like a seal point Himilayan and Sheba looks like a tabby. They both have gorgeous blue eyes, but I assume different daddy's. There mom was a pedigree Himilayan. I didn't know cats can be impregnated by more than one male at a time. Weird, huh?

Shauna Sid is a long hair breed with a huge fluffy tail. And when we adopted him he looked completely dark gray. Now two years later he is dark and light gray, some very light spots, golden brown and a few other colors. Wonder who his parents were. lol Anyway he is adorable. Who are the other two four footed loves in your life?

Shauna is truly an Angel on earth !!!

She has helped me....... a total stranger with the most difficult and tramatic period of my life and I now consider her as a very good friend , in fact i would go as far to say that I love her !!! She writes awesome hubs and poetry and has more empathy that even heaven could handle. Her story may have started in the states but her life and love is felt all over the world , this is only capable by a heart as pure as Shauna's she lights the world with her soul.

I cannot express how much I care for this woman and I am positive that you will feel the same if you follow her amazing path here on hubpges.

Gyps, as long as the body can get me around, I'm not so worried. The mind, however, must stay in tact! Axel (my booger boy) is one of 3 cats that share my life. He is a Flame Point Himilayan. The other two are Himilayan mixes I rescued. What type is your Sid?

Shauna is a great and passionate writer. Glad to see she also likes Stephen King. Enjoyed this much and I absolutely adore her Axel. My Sid got quite excited when he saw the picture. Let's keep being young at heart and mind Shauna I'm sure the body parts will follow along. Hugs.

Frog, don't take it personally. I've been lax in visiting everyone. I just don't have enough hours in the day anymore. I'll work on it - promise!

Always, thank you for your support. I need all I can get! Hopefully, it'll start paying the bills. Ha ha.

Martie, I truly hope your date from Hades was nothing like mine!

Mickey, you ornery old coot! Damn, I love all those you mentioned in your comment. I don't know why I love you either. You're completely unforgiving and and just plain mean! Just kidding. You know you've held a corner of my heart since we met - whether or not you're yanking my chain!

Eddy, your words touch me. It is you who is an inspiration to me. You've been thru so much pain yet you love life and have time for others. You, my friend, are the admirable one!

MickeySr 4 years ago from Hershey, Pa.

This has become a bit distressing - I don't know why we like each other so much . . . in the other interview hub Shauna talked about how much she liked Lennon's "Imagine", which I've never liked, and now, well, if there's one movie I dislike more than "Forest Gump" it's "Love Story".

Now, I know I'm the odd one here and that everybody likes "Imagine" and "Love Story" and "Forest Gump" but me - I guess it just rattles me a bit when someone I'm so fond of is so wrong about things . . . next she'll be saying she likes "Titanic" and "Dirty Dancing" and "An Officer And A Gentleman" . . . and The Eagles and Journey . . . and yet, she's so easy to like!? This is distressing.

Bravewarrior is a woman after my heart. I was surprise to learn how much we have in common - even a date of Hades. From the deepest corner of my heart I wish that all her dreams come true.

Having Shauna as a fellow-Perspective with you, Maria, certainly gives me more courage to air my perspectives on issues that boggle the mind and soul.

Another most enjoyable interview, voted up and pinned :)

Now I've read both parts; I just figured HP had screwed up when they posted two of these this morning. :)

Well, what do you want to know, Maria? If you know Sha you know that she is compassionate and passionate about life. You know that she has been knocked down more times than one person ever deserves to be, and yet she continues to get up and answer the bell for the next round. You know that she loves her son as much as life itself and would do anything for a friend.

Sheez, I happen to think this woman is incredible, so there you go!

Maria, you did a fantastic job of unveiling what I like most about Shauna - the fact that she is real. She and I often feel that we are sisters by different mothers and yet I learned many things about her in this interview that I did not know. I certainly enjoyed every word and applaud you for asking great questions that reveal those little things that make Shauna tick. Voted up!

Excellent hub! Bravewarrior (Shauna) has a clear way of articulation -- obviously why she is such a gifted writer. Looking forward to Part 2 (hopefully you'll explain why Bravewarrior needs a two-art interview).

Maria, Maria... here you go again! Work, Work, Work! And this time, about one of my favorite people on Hubpages! Shauna is a great person and a great writer. I don't think she really knows how good she really is. She's always there commenting and doing all she can to support. Can't say enough good about her, or about the job you do with these interviews. I guess I'll simply have to give my trademark... Great Job!
