I realize that though I sit and think about things all the time, they aren’t always deep meaningful things. So, I am taking a cue from my friend D’s blog http://thirtythreeandcounting.com/ Today she also stole her post idea from someone else (http://jamesandjax.com/) who directed readers to http://www.marcandangel.com/2011/03/14/365-thought-provoking-questions-to-ask-yourself-this-year/?amp a list of 365 thought-provoking questions by Marc and Angel Hack Life.
D answered the first five so I thought I might take a stab at the last five.
360. What can someone do to grab your attention?
I am easily distracted. To get my attention on a topic of importance I need to be kid free. I miss the adult conversation that I took for granted before children entered my life. I too quickly turn myself “off” from a subject if it isn’t interesting or Im busy. I need to take more time to listen and remember what other people tell me.
361. What do you usually think about on your drive home from work?
363. What simple fact do you wish more people understood?
Kindness and patience are worth the trouble. Again with our fast paced world it is so easy to become inpatient and rude. We expect results and expect them NOW! I am no saint and have been guilty of that. Being kind to strangers is totally worth it! You feel better doing it and they also are positively impacted.
364. If you could do it all over again, would you change anything?
No. There are things that I have said and done that I am not proud of. Moments that I should have said something else. Those moments are also what shaped me into the person I am today. If I hadn’t been so stupid in my past would my reality have come out differently? I love the life I am living now. No, it’s far from perfect but I am satisfied. Sometimes its hard to remember when you are in the middle of an awful day that really life is good. Im glad I did these questions today. I was definitely having a rough day but answering these q. are putting things in perspective.
365. How would you describe your future in three words?
Exciting, uncertain, optimistic
