Things That Make You Go Hummmmm

Hey friends!
We are gonna get deep today.
It don’t happen often but sometimes it’s good.
So I saw this over on Jackie’s blog a few days ago and I it really got me thinking so today I wanted to share some of the questions that I saw on her blog. Her blog has 50 questions but I only took the ones that really made me go hummm….
Which is worse failing or never trying?
Never trying is way worse than failing by far! If you try something what happens if you succeed? You never know how well you will do at something if you don’t try. Don’t be afraid of the unknown. Try! 
When all is said and done, will you have done more than you said?
I hope to be more than just words in this life. I have great aspirations in life and I really want to reach the goals I have set. I am slowly but surely checking off goals on my list. 
Whats the one thing you would like to change about the world?
Oh man just one thing? I would say I would love to change the way obesity is taking over the world. Seriously it is so heartbreaking. I guess being a former obese person myself I see how different it is to live a healthy happy active life and I want nothing more than for everyone to see that. 
If happiness was the national currency what kind of work would make you rich?
Hands down traveling! I have a list of places I want to go before my time on earth is up. Will I get to them all? Maybe not but I will get to as many as I can! I have a lot of fun trips planned for this year and I cant wait! Some of those include Vegas, Dallas, and Arizona. 
Are you doing what you believe in or are you settling for what you’re doing?
I was just settling for what I was doing until I got involved with AdvoCare and took matters into my own hands. Now I can say I am doing what I believe in more than I am settling for what I am doing. I will eventually be completely doing what I believe in one day. 
If the average lifespan was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?
To what degree have you controlled the course your life has taken?
Oh man this is something I struggle with all the time. I don’t typically go into religion on my blog because I just don’t want to open that can of worms and I am not one to push my beliefs on anyone. With that said, I am a Christian and I have a hard time letting go and letting God. This is a daily struggle that one day I will get a better grip on.

Are you more worried about doing things right or doing the right things?
I used to worry about doing the right things and doing things right. Now? I just worry about doing what I know is right for me. I do not try to please others. I live my life for myself and no one else. If something is right for me I will do it if its not I wont. Just because something is right for one person does not mean its right for everyone. 
How come the things that make you happy dont make everyone happy?
Because we are all different. Thats one of the best things about life no two people are exactly alike and ya know what I am so so glad about that. I personally think if the things that make me happy made everyone else happy life would be pretty dang boring. I mean heck there are things out there that I have yet to do that may make me happy and I have just not been introduced to them. However there are things I have been introduced to that I am not a fan of and ya know what? That’s okay! I won’t be happy with everything. None of us will be. 
What is something you have not done but you really want to do and what is holding you back?
Making my way to Hawaii, New Zealand, Australia, and Bora Bora. Whats holding me back? Funds right now. I will get to some if not all of these places in my lifetime though. 
If you had to move to a state or country besides where you currently live where would it be and why?
I would hands down be in Cali, or Arizona. I say it all the time, if it weren’t for the job I have on the port I would be out west already. While I do love Jersey I mean come on I am born and raised Jersey Girl there is a part of my heart that belongs to Cali and Arizona. I would love to live in Cali because the weather is just perfect out there year round. I am talking about So Cal. San Diego area would be awesome! I have been out there a few times and fell in love it with each time I have been there. I would move to Arizona in a heart beat as well. When I was younger I used to spend summers out in Tucson with my Gram and LOVED every second of it. I have a lot of fond memories from that.  
Would you rather be a worried genius or a  joyful simpleton?
Joyful simpleton! No doubt! I HATE being worried about things and I would never want to live my life in full time worry.
What are you most grateful for? 
My life, my friends, and my family. I can’t pick just one though. It’s like a packaged deal. And my dogs are part of my family so they go without saying. 
Would you rather loose all your old memories or never be able to make new ones? 
I would rather never be able to make new ones because I would never want to loose the memories I have of my Gram, my childhood, my family, the things I have been through that have made me me. 


Don’t forget…

I have a GIVEAWAY going on!

    I hear you on the travelling. That would make me a millionaire. And the done vs. said is something I try to work on all the time. I feel like I’m always saying “I want to do X” but it never comes to fruition.

    Failing sucks but I completely agree that never trying is worse. How would you know that you would fail u less you tried?! Although at this point, I feel like I have talked more shit than I’ve actually done, until recently! I’m trying to change that! And California and Arizona are on my bucket list!!!! Friends trip?
