Liberating My Mind with 50 Questions, Pt. 1

Liberating My Mind with 50 Questions, Pt. 1

In lieu of the impending end of the semester and negativity that tends to surround it, I thought I would do something a little different this week. In my post 101 Goals, I mentioned wanting to answer the 50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind a post by Marc Chernoff, a list of questions that give you a different, more positive outlook on various aspects of life. While 50 is quite a bit to do in one sitting, we will make this part one of a two part series of inspirational Whimsical Wednesdays. So, without further ado, here are my answers to these questions.

  1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? If I had the choice, I’d be in my mid-twenties
  2. Which is worse, failing or never trying? Never trying- at least you learn a valuable lesson if you fail.
  3. If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like, and like so many things that we don’t do? I think that people prioritize things that they feel as though they have to do rather than things that they want to do because it’s something that society has engraved in our minds.
  4. When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done? I sure hope not, but usually if I say I’m going to do something or something needs to be changed, I’m proactive about it.
  5. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world? An end to terrorism and oppression, life is tough enough as it is, why make it harder for others?
  6. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich? Writing, writing a lot
  7. Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you’re doing? Currently, I’m doing what I believe in, and I intend on continuing to do so
  8. If the average human lifespan was 40 years how would you live your life differently? I have a lot of goals in life  and a long list of things I’d like to accomplish so I would probably be more proactive sooner rather than later.
  9. To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken? I’ve controlled the vast majority of it thus far; I tend to be a bit of a control freak and extremely type-A.
  10. Are you more worried about doing things right or doing the right thing? Both, I worry way more than I should.
  11. You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire.  They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend.  The criticism is distasteful and unjustified.  What do you do? I defend that friend regardless of the situation.
  12. If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be? Don’t wish time away, enjoy every moment.
  13. Would you break the law to save a loved one? Depends on the situation, but, most likely, yes.
  14. Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity? Yes, just check out any modern art museum
  15. What’s something you know you do differently than other people? Sleep with the fan on even in the dead of winter
  16. How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy? Because everyone has different opinions, personalities, etc.;
  17. What one thing you have not done that you would really like to do? What is holding you back? I want to travel to Europe. Lack of money.
  18. Are you holding onto something you need to let go of? Yes
  19. If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you live in, where would you move and why? I would probably move to Maryland or Massachusetts, I just think it’s so beautiful out that way and I would still have the four seasons like Michigan.
  20. Do you push the elevator button more than once? Do you really believe that it makes the elevator go faster?  No and no
  21. Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton? Joyous simpleton
  22. Why are you, you? Because only I have had the life experiences that happened in such a way that they shaped me to be the stubborn, driven individual I am today.
  23. Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend? Absolutely
  24. Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives near you? Losing touch with a friend who lives near you
  25. What are you most grateful for? The unconditional love and support from my family and friends
