Another week, another round of Thought Questions! Be sure to check out my friend Celeste’s post as well!

#155: How will today matter in five years from now? I think that every day matters, even if you can’t see it at the time. Today has been a lazy one of relaxing at home, napping, reading, and catching up on chores. Perhaps in five years I’ll look back and fondly remember relaxing while I had the chance! Who knows!

#156: How have you helped someone else recently? I got up early before work to make breakfast and pack lunch for my husband so he wouldn’t have to, because he was pulling a double shift that night and needed the extra time to sleep. Not a big thing, but it did help.

#157: What is your greatest skill? Probably my writing abilities. Which is a good thing, because I suck at public speaking.

#158: Do you see to believe or believe to see? I believe to see. Remember that at one time men said the world was flat; they laughed at Galileo; we thought diseases like polio could never be cured. Belief is a powerful thing.

#159: How are you pursuing your dreams right now? One of my dreams is to make money through writing, so I’m trying to build up my freelance work and find more paid gigs that way. Right now I don’t make a ton of money, but it’s a start.

#160: What’s the next big step you need to take? Probably devoting more time to writing. I need to treat it less as a hobby.

#161: If today was the last day of your life, would you want to do what you are about to do today? No! I’m planning on spending the rest of the evening reading and/or watching TV, which is fine for now, but if it were the last day of my life I’d want to be doing something awesome with my husband.

    Aww, thats sweet of you to make breakfast and lunch for your husband :)

    I have decided that after 160 thought questions I am done for a while, but many use them to inspire future posts!

    Love reading your answers. Yay for following your dreams of being a writer. :) And it’s sweet of you to pack your hubby’s lunch. That last question, if I were to die young, I hope I know it’s coming so that I can devote the last moments of my life to something I love rather than an obligation.

      I second that–I would hate to die at work, or in the waiting room at the dentist’s office, or something like that!

    155. Today is monday and I hate mondays, lol.
    156. I helped sell some eggrolls for a distant relative. Her husband has stage 4 colon cancer. It’s the least I can do.
    157. My greatest skill is probably attention to details and accuracy.
    158. Belief, as far as I’m concerned, happens when my heart and my conscience comes to a mutual agreement.
    159. I’ve stopped dreaming. I need to find myself.
    160. I haven’t figured that out yet.
    161. If today was my last day on earth, I wouldn’t be going to work. I just want to spend time with my kids and my family…Talk, laugh, cry, and enjoy some awesome food.

      Aw, I’m so sorry to hear about your relative’s husband. It sucks when someone is sick. :( But it’s sweet that you would help out any way you can!

      I definitely wouldn’t go to work if I knew it was my last day alive. No stinkin’ way. LOL.
