Thought Questions, day 95: What three words would you use to describe the last three months of your life?

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 95: What three words would you use to describe the last three months of your life? Stressful, tiring, and eye-opening. Hopefully the rest of the summer will be better!

Thought Questions, day 94: If you haven’t achieved it yet what do you have to lose?

Day 94: If you haven’t achieved it yet what do you have to lose? I’m not sure how to answer this question. I guess you could interpret it as asking why you would continue to hold back from chasing a goal–what do you have to lose? You don’t have the thing you’re chasing (yet), so what do you really have to lose in the pursuit thereof? Or in other words, if the goal is that amazing, how can the journey (and any possible struggles along the way) be so bad that you would put it off? You’ve got nothing to lose by going for it!

I think this thinking finally kicked in big-time for me this spring when I realized that I had planned to travel around the world before I turned 25. My birthday is in two weeks, and I haven’t even left the states. I realized I could keep telling myself I’d never be able to afford it or I could buckle down my spending to stash as much cash as possible until I could go. There’s no point in waiting, because the time will pass anyway. What do I have to lose by trying? It’s not like I’m any closer to my goal than I was a year ago.

I’m curious, how do you interpret this question? And what’s your answer?

Thought Questions, day 93: Why are you, you?

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.

Day 93: Why are you, you? Because I don’t know who else to be. I don’t know how to not speak my mind, or love books, or guzzle coffee, or any of the other myriad things that sum up my whole. And I’m happy that way: being unique is so much better than being “normal”.

Thought Questions, day 92: What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?

Day 92: What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?
Travel the world! It seems like there’s always been something in the way–tight finances, or some sort of commitment that kept me tied down close to home. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to start checking off some of my travel goals very soon though (and am working hard on the money part of things!).
