I answered them...How about you?

While working on the Day Zero Project list (please go HERE!!!) this little baby popped up. Maybe I've been hiding under a rock but I haven't heard of it before! So I will check a thing off my list while sharing :-)

  1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? 28
  2. Which is worse, failing or never trying? Never trying
  3. If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do? We spend entirely too much time following our head instead of our heart.
  4. When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done? I hope not! Doing is more rewarding than saying.
  5. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world? Everybody to feel happy.
  6. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich? Anything animal related, I'm a sucker for the little guys.
  7. Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing? I'm taking a huge leap right now and doing what I believe in.
  8. If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently? I think I'm doing a pretty darn good job at finding my happiness.
  9. To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken? We all make the decisions that affect our life, everyday I'm controlling the course of my life.
  10. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things? I'd like to hope I'm doing the right things right.
  11. You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire.  They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend.  The criticism is distasteful and unjustified.  What do you do? Leave them to their own opinion and never speak of the convo again. Everybody has their own opinions of people and situations, doesn't mean I have to like it or participate.
  12. If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be? Be happy with every decision.
  13. Would you break the law to save a loved one? Yes.
  14. Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity? Not yet, definitely a bucket list item.
  15. What’s something you know you do differently than most people? Feel.
  16. How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy? Everybody is different, none of us will be 100% happy with the decisions another makes, even if it's your soul mate making the decision.
  17. What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?  What’s holding you back? Going back to school. The fight.
  18. Are you holding onto something you need to let go of? I don't believe so. I'm pretty good at letting go and moving on.
  19. If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why? I want to go live in Rome for a couple months just to experience the culture. It looks beautiful and Im hoping the people are just as beautiful.
  20. Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster? I have a 3 1/2 yr old I no longer get to push the button ;-)
  21. Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton? joyful simpleton
  22. Why are you, you? I am me because I am the greatest me.
  23. Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend? I try to be the best friend I would want.
  24. Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you? Losing touch with a good friend right near you, best friends can still be best friends from miles away.
  25. What are you most grateful for? My daughter.
  26. Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones? Toughie! I would say make new ones, the past is there for a reason after all.
  27. Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first? No.
  28. Has your greatest fear ever come true? Hopefully never.
  29. Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset?  Does it really matter now? What time?
  30. What is your happiest childhood memory?  What makes it so special? One that I will never forget will be holding Sean for the first time. I can remember everything and I was only 2, the color of the couch, that we slept in the parking lot of the hospital and how amazing his little face looked.
  31. At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive? When I decided to take a huge leap and go for something I've been wanting to do for a while. It will be a struggle at first, no doubt, but it's a dream that I shouldn't give up on.
  32. If not now, then when? Never, if you don't do it now you may never have the chance to do it again. Just go for it!
  33. If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose? You have the possibility of losing the satisfaction of completion. Just because you're not to the end of the race, doesn't mean you haven't achieved anything.
  34. Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever? Yes.
  35. Why do religions that support love cause so many wars? Because people's passion for their own beliefs fog the reality that not everybody believes the same thing.
  36. Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil? No.
  37. If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job? No. I honestly love my job. I would cut back my hours though.
  38. Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing? More work I actually enjoy.
  39. Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before? I have had days like that before, but not today.
  40. When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in? Welcome to my right now :-)
  41. If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today? I would spend today with E, as much as I love and care for many others in my life I wouldn't waste a second with her.
  42. Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous? No way! Famous people have no lives beyond the cover of People, I could never live like that. Being extremely attractive means nothing because I'm OK with myself and as long as the people I care about are calling me beautiful on a daily basis I must not need a bag over my head yet.
  43. What is the difference between being alive and truly living? Being alive is merely walking the earth, Living is enjoying every step you take.
  44. When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right? Right now. I should have done it a long time ago, but I just took a jump and let my heart lead.
  45. If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake? Mistakes hurt. Whether they are falling out of love, smashing your finger or losing a friend or career. It's the lesson that makes the pain go away.
  46. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you? Nothing, I'm getting judged beyond belief right now, but it's what's right for me and if somebody is judging you, then I don't think they really need to be in your life anyways. The rough times bring out the people that truly care about you.
  47. When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing? The last couple of weeks it's happened a lot ;-)
  48. What do you love?  Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love? I love being happy. So I'm in the market of surrounding myself with people and things that make me happy. If you don't make me happy, be warned you will be removed from my life.
  49. In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday?  What about the day before that?  Or the day before that? Specific days? No, but I will remember kind of what I was going through.
  50. Decisions are being made right now.  The question is:  Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you? I am making them for me, finally.
