I'm getting close to the end with this series so hang in there! This is a weird set of questions, so this post won't be too long. I wish I could swap these questions out but I won't! I'll stay true to the fidelity of the model (that's my work talk:-) and answer every question as is.
I'll try to make it as interesting as possible!
31. At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?
|New York, New York @ The Rockefeller Center|
32. If not now, then when?
I also want to be free of some of the worries I have now. I know worry is a choice...and there really is no good reason to worry (per the Bible)...but what can I say, I'm a worrywart! Absence of the things that add worry in my life will definitely help free my mind some. I'm not saying then and only then will I feel passionate and alive...but I think it speaks to why I can't think of a time in the recent past that I would describe as a time I've felt that way. I've been happy and excited and I've experienced a whole host of other emotions as well, but passionate and alive...not so much.
33. If you haven't achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?
I don't have anything to lose. I could, however, lose some of this worry and lack of time and resources I have. I say this, but I feel like it's possible to achieve even if those things are present. I would just prefer them to be gone!
34. Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever?
Yes, I have.
35. Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?
This is the second time I've heard this in the past week and there's something about this statement I just don't like. People aren't perfect. People commit actions that have effects. Inanimate things/beings/causes aren't able to make anything happen. A religion does not cause war. People who have disagreements can and they can claim to be doing it "in the name of religion". I don't believe religions cause war just like I don't think music or video games cause violence. People have to make decisions about how they will act. We're each accountable for our own actions. At the end of life, I don't think God will say to religion "why did you cause this war?" but He will certainly come to you and I to ask us about the things we've done during our lifetime.
So, the weird set of questions is complete..."wipes brow". Now we can resume with better questions next time. Also, I've got some exciting things going on today. Pray for me!!
And last but not least...after some debate (LOL) I'll be seeing Beyonce' tomorrow with my girls!
After all that's been going on a girls weekend is definitely needed...going to a concert isn't bad either!
Have a great weekend y'all!
