99. If you could ask one person, alive or dead, only one question, who would you ask and what would you ask?
I would ask my grandmother if she had any regrets in her life.
100. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
Spending everyday having new experiences, exploring the world, learning, enjoying gastronomical adventures and inspiring others to step out of the box.
101. What is your number one goal for the next six months?
To take my writing to the next level, by creating a larger following and having more articles published.
102. Would you ever give up your life to save someone else?
I can't imagine not giving my life up for my young niece who has not had a full life to live yet.
103. Are you happy with yourself?
Depends on the day. For the most part, I am proud of myself for all of the things I have accomplished and the person that I am. With that said, there are definitely times when I feel like I should be further along in life and during these times I need to take an inventory of my beliefs. I remember, not too long ago saying "if I only had xxx amount of blog followers" or "if my restaurant was only making xxx amount of money" then I would be happy and once that happened the bar was just set higher with no reward. The trick in my life has been learning how to set goals, achieve them, revel in the success and create new goals while still being grateful for what I have done.
104. What is the meaning of ‘peace’ to you?
Living in the present moment and being happy about the things I am doing in that moment.
105. What are three moral rules you will never break?
This has been that hardest question for me to answer, because the word NEVER is so strong and I can not foretell my state of mind in the future. Will I NEVER lie or NEVER cheat or NEVER break the law? The best I can come up with is…I don't know. Before you judge me as a terrible person, can you say that you have never told a lie or never broken the law? Have you ever gotten a speeding ticket or hid the receipt for those cute new shoes? Ok. I can say with a strong conviction that the moral rules I would never break are homicide or incest.
106. What does it mean to allow another person to truly love you?
That you have to truly love yourself and let go of all of your insecurities about being hurt by that person. Working on it…
107. Who or what do you think of when you think of love?
My little niece who is so sweet and innocent that you feel such a deep, unconditional love for that is never questioned.
108. If your life was a novel, what would be the title and how would your story end?
The title would be "Seen it. Done it. Ate it." It would end with me in a hammock on a tropical beach reading the story of my life to teach young children that they have the opportunity to do anything.
