276. At what point during the last five years have you felt lost and alone?
About a year ago there was a point when I questioned whether I could trust anyone around me or, for that matter, if anyone was a truly honest person. At that time, I felt like a had a severe misunderstanding about what life was about. Though, because of that time, I now know that I just need to trust myself to make the right decisions when I am faced with any situation.
277. What is one opportunity you believe you missed out on when you were younger?
Same as #265 – That I did not take a year off after college to experience the world. It makes it harder with the more responsibility in our lives. But, it is definitely not impossible!
278. What do you want more of in your life?
Uncontrollable laughter. I love it when something is so pee-your-pants funny that you can not control your laughter.
279. What do you want less of in your life?
To be surrounded by toxic people. I have many wonderful people in my life, but, there are a few who suck my spirit dry.
280. Who depends on you?
My husband, my employees, my family and my friends.
281. Who has had the greatest impact on your life?
It is too difficult to say since so many people have impacted me in different ways; my mother has taught me to have a work ethic, my husband showed me the importance of completing a task to the best of your ability instead of half-fasting it, my dad gave me a love of exploring, etc. Though, I will say that finally being able to control my anxiety has had the GREATEST impact on my life and that was all about me saying enough was enough and working so hard for years to change my thought patterns. It is still a work in progress, but life has never been happier.
282. Are you happy with where you are in your life? Why?
Yes, because I have worked my tail off to get where I am at. Our restaurant is successful, my blog is on the rise, my marriage is stable, I am fortunate enough to have amazing adventures, my spirituality is stronger and we live a comfortable life. I am extremely grateful.
283. In one year from today, how do you think your life will be different?
I foresee more freedom to travel the world, increased sales at our restaurant and a million blog readers 😉
284. How have you sabotaged yourself in the past five years?
I spent too much time obsessing about things that I had no control over.
285. Other than money, what else have you gained from your current job?
So much. A sense of pride and ownership. Strong friendships. Increased strength of character. Boosted level of skill.
