The 365 Question Challenge is based on the 365 Thought Provoking Questions to Ask Yourself this Year  written by the folks at Mark and Angel Hack Life.   It’s simple, just share your answers in the comment section and lets all get to know each other better…a lot better. Answer as many questions or as few as you like. Follow the Challenge on Twitter, Facebook or RSS to keep up to date.

57. Have you ever regretted something you did not say or do?
I don’t have too many regrets because I try to live in the present moment and not think to much about the past. With that said, there are still times that I wish I could be more expressive about how I feel to the people that I love. It’s a work in progress…just like me 🙂  

58. Has your greatest fear ever come true?
Nope and having suffered from anxiety in the past, I had a butt-load of them! I have been working for several years on retraining my mind to not obsess over things that have not happened and stay in the present. Though I sometimes fail (like whenever I am flying), I try to worry about the bad things as they hit.

59. Why do we think of others the most when they’re gone?
Because you don’t have the ability to create anymore memories with them, so you are forced to relive the ones you already had.

60. What is your most beloved childhood memory?
I have a fond memory of sitting at my grandmothers kitchen table and “helping” her to make homemade pasta. Growing up in a loud and mostly chaotic Italian family, this memory captures a rare peaceful time. Answering this question has made me realize that I do regret not telling my grandmother how much I loved her (see #57) and now I am forced to relive the beautiful memories I have (#59).

61. Is it more important to love or be loved?
To love, because then you have more of an opportunity to be loved back.

62. If it all came back around to you, would it help you or hurt you?
Hopefully help, because I have always tried to be a good, honest woman. My intentions 99% of the time (you gotta give me the 1% rebel factor) are of that from a decent place. For Heavens sake, I cry watching Kleenex commercials!

63. If you had the chance to go back in time and change one thing would you do it?
Spend more time with my grandmother learning more about her childhood and Italian traditions.

64. If a doctor gave you five years to live, what would you try to accomplish?
I would systematically go through my bucket list, accomplish every goal on it and bring all my family & friends along for the ride!
