Quote from Host Bev Sykes of sundaystealing.blogspot.com and the blog “Funny the World”.
Welcome to Sunday Stealing.
This feature originated and published on WTIT: The Blog. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions. (Past hosts include: Our first – Judd Corizan, Mr. L, Kwizgiver and Bud) Cheers to all of us thieves!
This week’s questions were originally from: Thought Provoking Questions
1. Do you own your things or do your things own you?
I’d have to say both. There are a lot that’s “When in doubt, throw it out!” and (too many) that are “Mine! Mine! Mine!”
2. Would you rather lose all of your old memories or never be able to make new ones?
Hard one. I live too much in the past, and the negatives surface way too often. New ones: that’s a fear, already, as I get older.
3. How do you deal with someone in a position of power who wants you to fail?
Happened to me way too often; it’s why I prefer working for myself, but I can be a real PITA to myself as well. In the past, keep going on until I can find a way out (job; etc)
4. What do you have that you cannot live without?
Friends and family.
5. When you close your eyes what do you see?
Whatever is running through my mind at the time. Vivid thinker.
6. What sustains you on a daily basis?
Hope. Wavers way too often.
7. What are your top five personal values?
- Living with a positive moral value system
- Openness in communication, thoughts, experiences
- Being creative
8. Why must you love someone enough to let them go?
It’s a hard thing for me: see above-living in the past. If they really need to leave, I hope it’s to their betterment, in whatever way they wanted.
9. Do you ever celebrate the green lights?
Big time. Biggest thrill is hitting a long patch of green lights while driving. Try 2nd Ave (Manhattan) in the middle of the night. I’ve made it from 91st street down to 12th without a red light.
10. What personal prisons have you built out of fears?
Having to push myself to leave the house.
11. What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?
Get my work published.
12. Why are you, you?
Heart and mind. I do not think linearly, mainly non-conformist, question authority, am a bit rebellious, and I embrace my inner child and my inner darkness. Pretty sure it all comes from seeing others and going “that’s not how I want to live.”
13. If you haven’t achieved it yet what do you have to lose?
I assume this goes with #11. Procrastination gets in the way; fear of never achieving it. I see the problem there.
14. What three words would you use to describe the last three months of your life?
Hectic. Painful. Lonely.
15. Is it ever right to do the wrong thing? Is it ever wrong to do the right thing?
Both depend on who/what sets the judgment of “wrong thing/right thing.” One example: people were fined (arrested?) for cleaning national parks during the “shut down.” I think that’s a no brainer: clean up the garbage.
16. How would you describe ‘freedom’ in your own words?
Nothing left to lose. Yeah, I know.
17. What is the most important thing you could do right now in your personal life?
A mutual love, caring, sharing, enjoyable, and respectful (of each other) relationship. Oh, wrong answer. Right now, stop procrastinating.
18. If you could ask one person, alive or dead, only one question, who would you ask and what would you ask?
My dad. “What drove you to survive through the things you experienced?”
19. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?
The process of sharing fun learning experiences without needing an end product.
