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.

143. How do you find the strength to do what you know in your heart is right?

I believe that comes with trusting in yourself and knowing that you recognize right from wrong. Sometimes it is still freakin’ hard, but knowing you are doing what is right it is worth the discomfort.

144. Where do you find peace?

I find peace in the present moment, not thinking about the past or the future. Also, as I sink my toes in the sand while watching the waves crash at the ocean.

145. When have you worked hard and loved every minute of it?

During the first two weeks of owning our restaurant. I specifically remember falling into bed feeling as if every part of my body had been drained…especially my brain. But, it was also exhilarating, liberating and empowering. When a dream is coming true, the work seems to  take a back seat to the excitement.

146. How short would your life have to be before you would start living differently today?

I love this questions because we usually put off our dreams until “later” thinking that we have more time. In general, I am an active dream achiever, but if I had only a year to live I would put my goals into super highspeed. My problem is that I have so much ambitious and there are not enough hours in the day!

147. Is it better to have loved and lost or to have never loved at all?

Absolutely, to have loved and lost. I can’t imagine going through life never having loved.

148. What would you do if you made a mistake and somebody died?

Massive amounts of therapy!  I can’t even imagine how you could begin to overcome such a tragic situation, while still being respectful to the mourning family of the deceased. I hope that I would have the strength to do what is necessary to pay for my mistake as well as heal in order to feel happiness again.

149. Who do you trust and why?

This is such a broad question and I believe we just answered the more narrowed version last week with question #135 – How many people do 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.”

I trust different people, for different reasons, with different information.

150. If you were forced to eliminate every physical possession from your life with the exception of what could fit into a single backpack, what would you put in it?

My Iphone – loaded with all my photos and favorite music

My Grandmothers wedding band – it was given to me to wear with my wedding ring and it is precious

My Engagement Ring – because my husband picked it out himself and it reminds me of how special it is when you find someone you want to marry

Greeting Cards – all the memorable, sweet cards my husband and family ever gave me

Poems – the poems, written on scrap paper, by my stepfather who creates one for every holiday

My Laptop – it holds all my memorable photos, future business ideas, bucket list goals and books I have started to write
