Following on the coattails of one of my favorite bloggers Martha, from Quick, Cheap & Pretty I am going to do a weekly round up of some "thought provoking" questions. These questions come from Marcandangel.com (a blog with practical tips for productive living!). Martha answers a question everyday and so far I have thought they were very thought provoking! I'm just going to do mine weekly, so here we go!
- When was the last time you tried something new? I have thought about this since I read this on Martha's blog 3 days ago and I'm still struggling. I have tried several new foods, and I have taken new classes but I haven't really DONE anything truly new. I am looking for a Yoga class to go to 3 times a week and that would be new - so lets hope I find one :)
2. Who do you sometimes compare yourself to? Oh my...who don't I compare myself to? I am always trying to gauge my value (which is probably unhealthy) so I'm always like "I'm more polite" , "i'm not as healthy minded", "I need to be more like that.". Blah, blah, blah. I'm always trying to be a "better" person, but I also think most people are good and have special talents - but I want to have ALL the talents!
3.What’s the most sensible thing you’ve ever heard someone say? "Be the change you want to see in the world." -Ghandi. I don't think it takes huge measures to chage our lives, our environment, our world. What if we all just changed our selves a little bit, imagine if people changed just 1% each year (recycled more,ate healthier, were a bit kinder). I really believe that by making sure my actions are in "check" I affect better karma!
4.What gets you excited ? I get excited about little things! Thunderstorms in the summer, an afternoon free to read and nap, going on a trip, finding a pretty nail polish color :)
But I also like knowing that no matter what happens "this too shall pass". We are so lucky to live in a time when penicillin exists, technology is always changing and we can communicate with someone across the world in 2 seconds.
So these are my deep thoughts for this week! I will be back with more... what do You think?!?
