50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind {Part 2}

This is part 2 of the 50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind. This part contains questions #26-50.

  1. Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones? I really can't answer this because I think both would be equally traumatizing. 
  2. Is is possible to know the truth without challenging it first? I always challenge information to determine if it's truth. Just the way I am.
  3. Has your greatest fear ever come true? Thankfully, no.
  4. Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset?  Does it really matter now? Yep, I remember. It was August 2010 when we left Louisiana to go to Maryland. I think it does matter since that decision affected my mental health.
  5. What is your happiest childhood memory?  What makes it so special? I have many, many happy childhood memories. There is no way to choose just one. They are special because they involve my family and other important people that mean everything to me.
  6. At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive? When I was in Louisiana in 2009 - 2010, 2012, and 2013. Louisiana brings out a part of me that I have never experienced anywhere else.
  7. If not now, then when? I'm not sure what this question is asking....
  8. If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose? What I have achieved?
  9. Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever? Nope, I really haven't.
  10. Why do religions that support love cause so many wars? This is a question that I cannot answer.
  11. Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil? No. I've learned that those who are most evil come disguised as good.
  12. If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job? No. A million simply isn't enough. I have 7 kids to put through college. Even if I were a billionaire, I would still be a psychologist.
  13. Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing? I'm going to assume that the less work would be something I didn't enjoy. So, I guess more work that I enjoy doing. Although less work sounds good anyway...
  14. Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before? 99% of my days are actually repetitious.
  15. When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in? Uhhhh, never?
  16. If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today? My family and keep my kids with me.
  17. Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous? Nope. I have no desire to be attractive or famous. I prefer to live a productive and happy life.
  18. What is the difference between being alive and truly living? Being alive simple means you are breathing. Truly living means you are enjoying every breath you take.
  19. When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right? You should always do what you know is right.
  20. If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake? Mistakes can be painful even if we do learn from them. It's not the mistake we fear but the pain created by the mistake.
  21. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you? Nothing.
  22. When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing? Every day. I always notice the sound of my own breathing.
  23. What do you love?  Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love? My husband, kids, family, friends. I hope that they always know that I love them.
  24. In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday?  What about the day before that?  Or the day before that? It's possible. I remember random days from further that 5 years ago. I also keep a small journal filled with daily events.
  25. Decisions are being made right now.  The question is:  Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you? I make the majority of my own decisions. However, I am a wife and mother; therefore, some decisions are made for the good of the family rather than what I want.
