65. What is the difference between falling in love and being in love?
Falling in love is the butterflies in the stomach as you are learning more about a person and are excited by all the things that you are uncovering. Being in love is the feeling of unconditional support, companionship, contentment, deep affection and respect (bonus if you still get little flutters in your tummy).
66. Who do you think stands between you and happiness?
Only myself. I believe that we are in charge of our own happiness and we choose how we feel about most circumstances we are faced with. 95% of the time that I am not happy, it is because I have chosen to have a negative outlook that day.
67. What is the difference between innocence and ignorance?
Innocence is not having been exposed to the information to have an opinion, whereas, ignorance is choosing to ignore the information that is available to you.
68. What is the simplest truth you can express in words?
Living in the present moment is the key to happiness.
69. What gives your life meaning?
Achievement, love, inspiration, learning and experience.
70. Can there be happiness without sadness? Pleasure without pain? Peace without war?
Yes, but if we never experience sadness or pain, we wouldn't know how to identify our happiness or pleasure.
71. What’s the one thing you’d like others to remember about you at the end of your life?
That I lived life to the fullest, inspired others to do the same and was a good-spirited person.
72. Is there such a thing as perfect?
Perfection is a perception, just like beauty. If you think something is perfect or beautiful than it is. A flower that is missing a pedal or starting to shrivel may be seen as perfection to somebody. So, yes, perfection does exist, the definition just varies from person to person.
73. To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?
I am not a believer in fate, I believe that my choices have created my life in most situations. Every opportunity I have said "yes" to (or "No"), with a few uncontrollable factors thrown in, has led me to where I am today. I have always come from a place of "yes-I-can" (& "don't-you-dare-tell-me-I-can't") and am motivated by knowing that I am the driver in my life.
