    1. When was the last time you tried something new?

    not very often. im basically a creature of routine. im not afraid of doing new things, but i prefer to do the same things again and again. i dont get bored. i find it comforting.

    i can replace a lightswitch.

    i would regret not doing my best at things i care about. regret not trying, even though its hard to believe that i could achieve those things.

    4. What do you want most out of life?

    i want to be an artist and i want to create artworks. other things are important too, but this particular thing i want is kind of in an ultimate class of importance. i can survive without other things, but not this thing.

    5. What do you like most about yourself?

    i dont give up. im always ready to try to do what needs to be done even when im really tired.

    6. What do you owe yourself?

    exercise! i run around a lot at work, but its nowhere near the same as swimming laps regularly. but i feel kind of overwhelmed with life lately. i cant find the energy to do things i dont need to do.

    7. What are you most scared of?

    im afraid that i will never complete my ultimate goals of writing novels. if i dont do that i will die and rot inside. like a zombie.

    8. What are you looking forward to?

    im looking forward to living alone in my own apartment one day. i long for stable self sufficient independence. achieving that will be one of the best days of my life.

    9. What are you most proud of?

    im proud that i dragged myself to recovery from mental illness, when i was in hospital at times i was very sure i would die.

    10. What makes you special?

    nothing special, im just average, regular.
     
  7. 1. When was the last time you tried something new?
    - A few weeks back – Giving serious thought to taking up jogging! The only form of exercise I do is to walk and cycle - never been keen on running (too many reasons to go into) so actually thinking about it means I will do it (when the weather improves!).

    - Last week Friday - Ordering a mocha for myself (don't drink coffee of any kind - makes me hyper) and surprisingly enjoyed it (well the milky frothy bit and the large croissant that came with it!). Will I order it again...probably not!

    - A few days ago - Created a new Mediterranean mackerel dish/marinade - yet to give it a name but it’s yummy delicious!

    2. What can you do today that you could not do a year ago?
    - Be able to have a conversation with my dear mother without having a major ding dong.

    3. What would you regret not doing?
    - "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference."

    4. What do you want most out of life?
    - To constantly move forward with every aspect of my life, personally, spiritually, in my marriage, with family, friends, work etc.

    5. What do you like most about yourself?
    - My gutsy and nonconformist attitude to go against the flow

    6. What do you owe yourself
    - Time out to have mini-tantrums/rant as I please and be deliriously happy for it! :m200:

    7. What are you most scared of?
    - Anything that would rob me off my capacity to enjoy life and limit my ability to contribute into other people’s lives.

    8. What are you looking forward to?
    - After 12 years - moving house - will be very sad but change is positive.

    9. What are you most proud of?
    - Wearing my heart on my sleeve - liking who I am, being me, no pretence.

    10. What makes you special?
    - Being told that I have a presence without realising it.

    1. When was the last time you tried something new?

    A couple of weeks ago when I installed a new cork floor. It looks good.

    2. What can you do today that you could not do a year ago?

    Drywall. Not fun but I can do it

    3. What would you regret not doing?

    Taking a chance on a new life

    4. What do you want most out of life?

    Unconditional love

    5. What do you like most about yourself?

    That I don't let anger and resentment control me.

    6. What do you owe yourself?

    Self-love

    7. What are you most scared of?

    Wasting my time on the wrong thing

    8. What are you looking forward to?

    Completing my home renovations, selling my house and moving on to a new adventure (looking forward to it but terrified at the same time)

    9. What are you most proud of?

    Raising my kids and taking care of my parents when they needed me.

    10. What makes you special?

    I am kind and caring to absolutely everybody, whether they realize it or not (sometimes the most caring thing to do is not the most popular). I do not mistreat anybody even if they have mistreated me. I do not ever seak revenge and don't badmouth people. I do not gossip. I forgive. Basically, I treat everybody as I would like to be treated, with love and respect, even those who don't give it back.

    That makes me sound like a saint, but I'm not [​IMG]

    Yesterday.


    Socialising, standing on my two feets (metaphorically), and...farting in public. Yeap, I tried that with girls. It was awesome!!!

    Not knowing some important things I could have known if my ears were open. I was to selfish for that, and now I see how much I lost.

    Joy and fun. And love of course, in the sense of a family. Also to build something, to work on something. I have to make something useful, whatever that would be.

    I'm a very strong-willed person. Once I take the decision, I'm all or nothing.

    Nothing. My self needs humility more than anything.


    Of not being capable enough. I also have intellectual concerns. I was always a bit of a 5.

    Buy my own house, I'm working hard for that.

    I have the most amazing parents in the world. With this advantage, I can win the world!

    Fundamentally special...nah...I think we're all fundamentally special (in the sense that we are equals).
    Other than that, what I like about me is the patience and determination to work hard in a certain situation or problem...but than everybody can have that if he want to, so...I don't know, maybe the dream that one day I would run for presidency in my country??? Of course, I don't really want to take that responsability on my shoulders, but I just wanna entertain the possibility of it :p

    1. When was the last time you tried something new?

    I went to a filipino restaurant today


    2. What can you do today that you could not do a year ago?

    Voice my needs effectively and respect myself more in dealing with others


    3. What would you regret not doing?

    I would regret not seeing the more of the world and becoming stronger


    4. What do you want most out of life?

    I want to know that I'm using my talents and abilities to help others in the best way I can


    5. What do you like most about yourself?

    I have always heard that I am well-liked, so I like whatever it is that is the reason why I am well-liked... I hope the reason is that I make people feel special or noticed or connected to, instead of a more superficial reason
    ... I think it might be because I'm simultaneously nice/understanding, and snarky/dorky

    6. What do you owe yourself?

    This question asks about what I'm not doing which could be making me much happier basically? I think I have to simultaneously be less lazy and be less hard on myself, which is hard.

    Probably having my life forever stuck in circumstances in which I am inescapably widely looked down upon
    by others

    8. What are you looking forward to?

    Gaining more experience and understanding how to live more happily, more beautifully, more effectively, more fully, more lovingly


    9. What are you most proud of?

    I'm most proud of having developed my insights to this point
