Answer as many questions or as few as you like. Follow the Challenge on Twitter, Facebook or RSS to keep up to date.

134. What’s the difference between settling for things and accepting the way things are?
Settling is what you do when you think that you do not deserve better than what you have, whereas, accepting is deciding to be content and happy with where you are at the moment. Don't ever settle! You do deserve more!

135. How many of your friends would you trust with your life?
That totally depends on the circumstance. Trust to jump in front of a car to save my life or trust that they are not going to poison me for a million bucks? Probably…two. Ooh. That's a little depressing.

136. What’s your definition of heaven?
Sitting atop marshmallow clouds, eating a large Italian meal (without gaining an ounce) with all of my loved ones and surrounded by pure happiness.

137. What is your most prized possession?
My body. Not, in a vain way…really…I have cellulite too. It's just that without the strength of my body I would not be able to achieve all the goals that I want to. It has become way more important to nourish and treat my body with loving care so it will sustain me for a very long time to come (& bungee jumping). 

138. How would you describe yourself in one sentence?
An honest, curious woman who never wants to stop learning or having new experiences.

139. What stands between you and happiness?
Only me and my choice. I believe that you choose happiness by the way that you look at life. For the most part, when I am unhappy it is because I chose to be that day. Choosing happy today 🙂

140. What makes a person beautiful?
I think everyone has some beautiful quality to them. It could be internal or external, sometimes both. For me, what I find most beautiful in a person is someone who is being authentic to who they are. In other words, owning themselves and making no excuses about it. 

141. Is there ever a time when giving up makes sense?
Yes, when the goal is not worth the pain you endure essentially causing you more harm than good.

142. What makes you proud?
Anytime someone, including myself, achieves a dream.
