49. Where do you find inspiration?
Everywhere. The beach, reading others blogs, with inside myself, movies or television shows, from people who are successful at their passion, etc… Your mind just has to be open to seeking out the positive benefits in any scenario you are in.
50. Can you describe your life in a six word sentence?
Filled with learning and new experiences.
51. If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?
Because there is a misconception that perfection exists in every situation. People, unfortunately, are not perfect. Yes…I know…that sucks.
52. What impact do you want to leave on the world?
I hope that I will be remembered as an adventurous woman who experienced life to the fullest and inspired people to do the same.
53. What is the most defining moment of your life thus far?
I have to admit that, even though I have been writing this post for over two weeks, I saved this question for last. Can you really just pick ONE moment, because I have had several in each chapter of my life? So, here goes me vomiting my blatant honesty: A grandmothers death, a family member getting sober, a "16-year sober" family member getting drunk, an infidelity, seeing a man I love cry, seeing a child in pain, visiting a sibling drug addict in jail, knowing that I am the only one I can truly trust (& maybe not even 100%), admitting to having anxiety and overcoming.
54. In the haste of your daily life, what are you not seeing?
My husbands need for my affection, my mothers need to spend time with her only daughter and the everyday laughter of my young niece. Ouch…that was just a very painful realization.
55. 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?
Because we have complicated our lives with attempting to keep up with the "Joneses" and now we have to work our butts off to pay it. So, many are just "too tired" to try something new and too overwhelmed to take on the new task of finding our passion! Oh…and because, television has helped to fill the void by occupying our free time with watching people living the lives we should be (no, I am not just talking about The Real Housewives of…wherever!).
56. What lifts your spirits when life gets you down?
Puppies breath, babies laughter, any new experience and sinking my toes in the sand while watching the waves crash against the shore.
