Edited to add: It’s now 2012 and I feel like doing these again so I’ll add my answers below.
Q41. If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today?
A: My parents
2012: My parents
Q42. Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?
Q43. What is the difference between being alive and truly living?
A: Being alive means you’re breathing. Truly living means you’re happy you’re breathing.
2012: What I said above + truly living also means being content.
Q44. When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?
A: It should always be that time
2012: It’s always time, but it’s not always easy
Q45. If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?
A: Great question! Because we’re not thinking about the learning potential, we are stuck by fear and what others may think.
2012: We are culturally taught that mistakes mean weakness and weaknesses should be hidden.
Q46. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
A: Quit my j.o.b. I suppose (yes, the theme continues) … I may dress diffrently too, a tad more out there and quirky. Also I’d change up my hair even more than I do now (like shaving the side off or dying a streak purple)…and yellow polish and glitter on my eyelids 🙂
2012: Quit my job.
Q47. When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing?
A: Never 😐
2012: Not recently
Q48. What do you love? Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love?
A: I love my God, my husband, my parents, my friends. Yes, I express this often.
2012: I’m in love with the baby growing in my tummy 🙂
Q49. In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday? What about the day before that? Or the day before that?
A: Yes, because yesterday was spent with family doing birthday parties and christenings without out of town guests galore. The day before was pretty memorable as well so yes, and the day before. Now it just HAPPENED to be a very unique weekend, but yes to all 3. Now if it were duing the week (when all the days run together) the answer would be a resounding NO WAY!
2012: Not really
Q50. Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?
A: Both unfortunately, but a change gone come.
2012: Still both but less of others making them for me than when I first answered these questions. A change continues to come.
Well that’s the end of the list. Feel free to answer any of these in the comments below. I’m not sure if my mind is free-er but they definitely were thought provoking and fun to respond to.
Thanks for visiting!
