Thursday, May 31, 2012

This is the second part of yesterday's blog post. You can read the first 25 questions by click, here

26. Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
I'd like to pick nether! However, if this did happen, I would hope to remember all the old memories with all the old photos that I have. And maybe those around would help the new memories become old memories revisited.
27. Is it possible to know the truth without challenging it first?
Assumptions will get you in trouble, and usually hurt feeling is the end. Get the facts first.
28. Has your greatest fear ever come true?
No, and I hope it never does. Plain and simple!
29. Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now?
I do actually. But no, it doesn't matter now. We can always forgive, but it's sometimes hard to forget.
30. What is your happiest childhood memory? What makes it so special?
Growing up, every Friday night we had Pizza Hut for dinner. I still remember the smell of the pizza grease on the cardboard filling the car on the way home. Why is that memory so special? Because it was the start of the weekend, and we all sat down together as a family to eat and watch TV.
31. At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?

Honestly, it was when I met the hubs over three years ago, and every moment since then. We bring out the best in each other which makes us both feel very alive. 

32. Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever ?

I can't say that I have. I have a voice, and I don't mind using it! But, maybe I should try it. =)
33. Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?
Religion doesn't cause wars, people do.
34. Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?
The definition of evil is the violation of, or intent to violate, some more code. So yes, I do think so.
35. If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job?
The Mr and I have the conversation all the time, and no we wouldn't. Now if it were 30 million, that answer might change. However, we both feel if you are in a job you love, we'd keep working, but only part time.

36. Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?

More work you actually enjoy doing makes the day go by so much faster and enjoyable.
37. Do you feel like you've lived this day a hundred times before?
Some days are like that, but if you look at each day as an adventure, no day is the same.
38. If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today?
I'd spend the day with the Mr., my family and friends. One big party to celebrate life!

39. Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?
Is this seriously a question? Absolutely not! Everyone is as famous as they want to be, and everyone is already attractive in their own way.
40. What is the difference between being alive and truly living?
Being alive is just existing. Truly living, is getting up everyday and living your life... not wasting a moment, enjoying every moment you're given!
41. When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?
I'll always over-analyze everything, and make sure what I'm about to do it right.
42. If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?

I think it's our fear of failure. But some would also say some mistakes we never learn from...
43. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?
Unfortunately we all know this would never happen... seems these days we get judged for just living life the way we do. I'm not sure there would be a change, even if people didn't judge!

44. When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing?
Last night. I was stopped up and having a hard time breathing, and as I laid there trying to sleep, I listening to my own breathing. Of course, the Mr's breathing could be heard, too. =)
45. What do you love? Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love?
I love living my life. I love living it with my husband. I love our little adventures, and every day is an adventure with us.

46. In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday? What about the day before that? Or the day before that?
People ask me why I blog, and part of that reason is so I can remember yesterday, the day before, and the day before it. Everyday entails something worth remembering.
47. Decisions are being made right now. The questions is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?
It's not just me anymore, which means it's a team effort. No decision is made without a discussion between the Mr and I. We make life's most important decisions, together. 

48. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

The Mr and I are going to St Lucia for our one year wedding anniversary, and I can't wait!
49. What do you think would be the hardest thing to give up on?

Happiness. Everyday you can chose to be happy even if you think there is nothing to smile about. Life without happiness isn't life at all.
50. What were you doing the last time you really had a good laugh?

Cooking last night with the Mr. Our apartment kitchen is much smaller than we are use to, but both of us in there working on dinner together was hilarious. Especially when he missed a step in the directions. =)
