Question of the Day-

July 31st, 2009

I haven’t done a ‘Question of the Day’ in a while, so I thought I’d start the weekend off right by asking one.

Today’s Question of the day is:

What is the oldest thing in your fridge?

I didn’t actually get up and go look, but without a doubt I can say that the oldest thing in my fridge is a jar of partially eaten honey that I bought when Marcel and I went to Bulgaria in 2007.

Your turn!

Question of the Day

June 9th, 2009

Yesterday I was watching something that I’d DVR’d, and during the program, they were discussing how this persons life had changed due to illness.   The comment was made that this person didn’t ask for this disease, didn’t want the disease (after all, who would), but yet as much as all those things were true- it’s what this person needed for their life.

It really stopped me in my tracks,  got the grey matter churning, about how often we find ourselves in situations, not even necessarily with illness, but in situations that are less than ideal, but more often than not- rather than embracing the situation for what it is when we can’t change it- we tend to spend alot of time and energy focusing on something we have no control to change anyway, and often times those speedbumps or road blocks along the road of life are not necessarily what we want, but it’s what we NEED, and how we choose to react to it makes all the difference.

We can’t choose certain things that happen, but those certain things do not define who we are.  There is much more to the total picture, and we always have the choice as to how we will react and manage what we’re given.

That leads me to today’s question of the day:

What situation in your life comes to mind that turned out much better than you originally thought?

Question of the Day

May 28th, 2009

From time to time- I turn to my trusty iPhone application Question of the Day for interesting questions that make me pause and think. Sometimes, I think it’s fun to share those questions with you and hear what YOU think- Today is one of those cases.

Today’s question is…

Can Trust be restored??

What do you think? I’ll share my answser tomorrow.

Question of the day- Self Thoughts

May 7th, 2009

This question may require you to take a look at yourself, and truth is, you may not like your answer, but the great thing is- knowledge is power- and there is no way to change something that you can’t or don’t recognize.

I don’t want to expound too much on today’s question, otherwise I won’t have much to write tomorrow when I respond. My own answer is much different than it was initially when I asked myself the question- so give yourself time to really look at yourself and be honest.

I’ll share my response tomorrow, but in the meantime: How do you usually talk to yourself?

In case you aren’t sure what I mean by that question, I mean what type of things do you say to yourself, about whatever life may toss your way. We all have that ‘inner voice’, and I’d like to know how yours talks to you.

Wishes- Answer to Question of the Day- (Wednesday)

May 7th, 2009

I asked yesterday, if you could wish one thing for yourself, what it would be and why, and also what you would wish for another person and why.

Since I posed that question here, I’ve actually thought long and hard about it, realizing that it’s pretty difficult to narrow things down to one wish for me, and even more difficult- one wish for someone else.

For myself, I really could wish for many things- most of the materialistic, some not, and when I ask myself that question, I notice that depending on the moment I ask- the answer seems to change- Is it that same way with y’all as well?

Right now- at this very moment- I would wish for myself- That a job I made mention to a friend about, actually materialize into an opportunity for me, or that a similiar opportunity would arise. The reason why, is because we could always use the extra money.

A wish for someone else- That is trickier, because there are SO many things that I wish for other people at this moment, and if only my magic wand could be waved and grant all the wishes – but alas, that isn’t so.

At this moment, there are several people that I would love to see their health restored. It’s something that so many of us take for granted, until we find ourselves with health problems.

There are also people that I love dearly, who are struggling, and my wish is for them to no longer have to struggle with finances, with relationships, with other little things that are weighing them down.

This list could go on and on and on…. what I wish for the most- is that we could all learn to love each other- in spite of our differences, and stop condeming and judging, just because our thoughts and feelings may be different. We all need to learn a little more compassion. Scratch that- we all need to learn A LOT more compassion.

Thanks to those of you who took the time to respond to the question of the day- A new question to follow shortly.

Make a Wish (Question of the Day)

May 6th, 2009

I”m actually going to keep this short today, because I promised myself that I would spend some time working on my vision board, and I am going to do just that.  

I have a huge stack of magazines to sort through, and clip out anything that I deem worthy for the vision board, but I digress- more on that at another time.

Instead, I have a question (actually two questions) for you to ponder today.

My friend Sarah, wrote in her blog yesterday about wishes, and it made me wonder:

If you could make two wishes- One for yourself, and one for someone else- What would those two wishes be, and why? (They can be anything- large or small)

I’m going to ponder this a big longer myself, and share my response tomorrow, but I’m curious as to what your response is. Don’t be shy, inquiring minds want to know.

In the meantime, make a wish!

Question of the Day- Kind Of

April 21st, 2009

I didn’t find this in the Question of the Day  application on my iPhone, but instead heard asked on a program I was watching last night and thought that it would be interesting to see the response people gave when asked.  That leads me to  ask you, yes YOU too:

What would you say in completing the following sentence:

If you knew me, you would know that….. (fill in the blank)

Inquiring minds await your response.   I’ll share mine tomorrow when I have a little more time.

Question of the Day

April 15th, 2009

One of the many things I love about my iPhone is the applications. Seriously, I could sit for hours pouring over the applications, reading about them and installing the ones that look interesting.

One of the applications I’ve installed is called Question of the Day, and while I may not actually ask a question each and every day, it does make for interesting conversation- so I thought I’d ask the first question that popped up today when I clicked the ‘start application’ button.

What’s the best thing you’ve ever gotten that didn’t cost anything?

Inquiring minds want to know. Look forward to your answers, and I’ll have to think about it, so I’ll share mine tomorrow.

(Note that I didn’t write these questions, but just write them as they appear in the application.)
