50 Questions to Free Your Mind, Part 5

With all that goes on in life, it's somewhat helpful to take a break from the normal things that weigh my mind down. I mostly like to dream of what my life will look like down the road, but I also like to think about different things. I love answering these questions so I hope you all enjoy reading them.

21. Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?
Well, I worry now anyway...why not be more of a genius than I already am?!

22. Why are you, you?
Late 1990 or early 1991
I think I was shaped by the experiences I've been through. I believe a lot of who I am was created by the way I was raised. I also believe I was shaped by my environment and the experiences I've been through. A desire was instilled in me to want more than I was afforded as a child. Education was a high priority in our household and I've used that as an avenue to create better opportunities for myself. I'm able to provide a lifestyle for myself, by myself, because of my education and associated accolades I've achieved. If you read this (#3), you would know I learned independence at a very early age. I also took on a caretaker role early. My little sister was born when I was 5 and my Moma will tell you right now that I used to treat her like she was my child! LOL. I had to take care of her a lot at such a young age because my mom worked a lot...and I guess that caretaker, nurturing role just kind of stuck with me. So, there are a lot of stories I could tell that can be associated with characteristics that make me, me! 

23. Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?
I have a small circle of very close friends. We all have our own lives. At this point in life we're all trying to get on our feet and get ourselves and our own families built and established. Life can be hard, time consuming, and tiring!! It's very easy to get caught up in that whirlwind. I find myself in it often, but I also know that if I need any one of my friends I can call on them. The same is true for them. That's all I can ask, especially since we're not all in the same city.

24. Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?
Definitely losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you. As I said in the question above, I have a very small circle of friends so losing a friendship would be very unfortunate. I know I can always call on my friends at any time and vice versa and that means a lot to me. Not being able to do that at all would suck! Distance doesn't erase relationships.

25. What are you most grateful for?
(God and my life...which is a given) My loved ones. They have been a part of making me who I am...through the good and bad!! They've been there for me and are there for me now. They are definitely a comfort for me and I don't know what I would do without any one of them!!!

  1. Good stuff! :)
    I agree with the last 3 questions.

    1. Aww! Thanks Jessi. That makes me smile. I believe this is the first comment I've gotten on one of my Free Your Mind posts. I really enjoy these and put a lot into answering them, so it def makes me feel good that you're feeling me on those questions!! Thanks for stopping by too!

  2. I enjoyed reading this post. Losing friends can be hard, especially since they are so hard to come by. Most of my friends have come and gone due to those life changes like marriage, children, jobs, or distance. I tend to befriend international people and that means in a few years they usually return to their home countries. And it's hard.

    I think that some people have lifetime friends (from childhood, college, etc) and some have friends that come in seasons. We don't necessarily choose the category we fall in, but one thing is for sure, whenever there are those special people in your life, it's important to enjoy them. :-)

    1. Oh goodness!! I thought I responded to this already! Sorry Libby!

      Losing friends is hard but sadly it's a part of life. We have to cherish the friendships we do have though...because they are harder to come by as we get older.

  3. I love all of these posts! I just suck at commenting lately! Charge it to life and not my heart, lol! I'm working on oing better...hence this

    1. I know, I know...same with me. That's why I've subscribed to a few of my favorite blogs so I can at least read them when there's updates...but it's hard to comment on them from my iPad because of the way it opens I'm working on that part too!! I completely understand.

  4. I'm working on doing better...hence this somewhat unrelated to the post comment!*


What are you thoughts?!
