    Insanity and creativity go hand and hand for me , the elevator lol I feel lucky if it opens on the first initial button push !! The older I get the less I need and everyday is an adventure , life is way to short to not act silly and try something new even if you do not do it perfect. Perfect is overrated !! Good one Kim ! emoticon

    These are very thought provoking questions. I read them all, and #18 struck the loudest chord with me. Yes, I am holding onto beliefs that no longer serve me, and am working to let them go.Yes, I'm guilty of pushing the elevator button more than once. emoticon

    Great answers Nilley76. I especially like #7. Being happy in what you do for work is so important as we spend so much time and energy doing it.

Veachxcl, I felt the same way. It made me stop and really think about things that are so easy to put off until tomorrow. Then, tomorrow never comes. Oh yes....and I do push the elevator button more than once sometimes :) That one made me laugh.

  6. Charity work would make me happy.
7. I am working at the job that I went to school for so I am mostly happy with it and it is what I believe will change the future for myself and my family. I say this because I was completely unhappy and miserable at my last job. My last job was also NOT providing for my family the way it needed to. This job will provide even more hope for the future and more experience.

  4. No because I have changed many things that I did not like. I didn't like my job. I went back to school and changed jobs.
I was tired of being overweight and I got up and did something about it.
5. I would change the fact that we are not able to discipline our children the way they need to be in order for this world TO be able to change. Noone is accountable for their own actions any more. It's always someone else's fault.

  3. We do things we don't like because we have responsibilities and don't do things that we do like because of lack of funds and responsibilites once again.
