Thought Questions, day 100: If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?

I got these questions from Danielle’s blog Underland to Wonderland, where I came across a post in which she talked about the website Thought Questions and their 365 thought-provoking questions to ask yourself. My friends Katrin, Celeste and Jasmine have also been answering these questions, so be sure to go check out their blogs too! 

Day 100: If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich? Writing and snuggling kitties, of course! “Cat cuddler” is a job title, right?

Thought Questions, day 99: If you could ask one person, alive or dead, only one question, who would you ask and what would you ask?

Day 99: If you could ask one person, alive or dead, only one question, who would you ask and what would you ask? I would probably like to chat with George R.R. Martin about his writing process. A Song of Ice and Fire is so complex and I’d love to know if he plots everything out in advance or just wings it, and either way, how he goes about writing along the way. I’m pretty sure an afternoon chatting with him about plotting would be a dream for any book lover.

Day 98: What is the most important thing you could do right now in your personal life? Take better care of my health, by working out more and eating healthier foods. I’m working on it, but it’s hard! I know this will ultimately make me happier and improve my quality of life so I’m keeping at it.

Thought Questions, day 97: How would you describe ‘freedom’ in your own words?

Day 97: How would you describe ‘freedom’ in your own words? Open space and running unencumbered through the woods and over the hills.

I’ve shared this song before on the blog but I have to share it again, because it sounds like freedom. I don’t know how else to describe it.

Thought Questions, day 96: Is it ever right to do the wrong thing? Is it ever wrong to do the right thing?

Day 96: Is it ever right to do the wrong thing?  Is it ever wrong to do the right thing? I know I answered a similar question earlier in this set. I think this question hinges on the idea of “morally grey” and the letter of the law; for example, if you follow the letter of the law, then it’s wrong to lie to protect someone else from harm. But I would say it’s wrong to be bluntly honest and put someone in danger. Think of all the German citizens during World War II who lied to their government in order to hide Jews and save them from the concentration camps. They were right to do the “wrong” thing.
