Thought provoking questions Part I


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 (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!

  1. 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 about life?  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?!?



  1. I compare myself way too often as well. Bad habit!

    Good luck finding a yoga class- will be interested to hear how it goes.

    1. I want to do one that is especially for strengthening your back!

  2. Good luck finding your yoga class! I get excited about the little things too, I can relate to finding a pretty nail polish ;) Looking forward to your deep thoughts next week :)

  3. Thanks for the shoutout! I'm so glad you're answering these too--I love reading what other people have to say!

    Good luck with the yoga class!! And I can definitely relate to the thrill of reading and nail polish. Having an afternoon free to just lie on the sofa with a new book makes me giddy with bliss!

    1. Thanks have having a great idea! An afternoon with a book is the best!

  4. I just ate some cactus yesterday for the first time. It was pretty good. I don't like comparing myself to others because I'm happy with the way I am, in spite of all my flaws.

  5. Cactus! Was it raw or cooked?
