Free Your Mind pt.1

I am loving getting involved in the Indie Ink challenge, not just for the creative boost but also to find more people to stalk follow.  This week I'm challenging Lizzie from Count the Years, and when I went to her blog I loved the Free Your Mind questions she just started.

So, I'm going to copy her!  I hope to post these on Saturdays and I'm splitting up the 50 questions into 5's so it will take me 10 weeks to finish the questionnaire.

Free Your Mind pt. 1
How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?I would probably be in my mid thirties.  I always feel older than I am at 26 with two kids, although I do act the extremes quite often.  Sometimes I describe myself as 26 going on 70, which would be when I look down on the clothes kids are wearing 'these days' or say 'bless your heart' to describe someone.  I can also forget everything around me and act like I'm 3, like when I taught Leah how to shoot straw papers at people and played along with her.
Which is worse, failing or never trying?Wow, this is a really hard question for me to answer.  I am an odd type of perfectionist; the type that's afraid to even try something for fear that it won't be perfect and I will fail.  So I don't try.  I guess not trying is worse because the place I am in my life is trying to conquer my fear of failing and try.
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?Eh, if we did more of the things we like whose to say we will start not liking them as well?  It's all about moderation.  (please tell that to my eating skills)
When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?Um, I think this goes back to two questions ago.  Right now I am a queen at the 'half finished' or 'half thought out' projects.  I hope when I die I will have done more that I've said.
What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?I think I have to say judgement, but I also would like to change the youth (here's the 70 year old in me).  I think kids are being raised now in an entitlement fashion where they just believe they should have all that they wish for. Kids aren't being forced to work for rewards and such are more likely to not work as hard when they grow up.  And because of this some rely more on government, others on parents, when really they should just roll up their shirt sleeves, do something they may not want to do, so no to some things they want and provide and support themselves.

  1. you sound like me lol! I swear I live in a 70 year old body sometimes. Like I love my afternoon naps saying "kids these days" and bless your heart too although i think bless your heart is more of a southern thing


comments make the world go round, kind words make the sun shine, and nice thoughts make the rain fall ... what? the flowers have to grow somehow ...
