  1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? Most of the time, I feel ancient. Circumstances that I grew up with meant that I grew up quickly, and I feel old from the wear it has had on me.
  2. Which is worse, failing or never trying? It depends on the consequence and outcome of failing or never trying. If failure has an awful consequence, then I wouldn't, but usually I'd try.
  3. If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do? Harsh reality; too few of the fun careers and many of the not so fun. Working is a necessity for most people. We also tend to like things that are out of our reach. 
  4. When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done? Not necessarily :)
  5. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world? It would be great if people cared more about each other, less violence and greed.
  6. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich? Anywhere in the chocolate tasting, cat petting, or nap taking business is good with me :D
  7. Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing? I'm doing what I believe will lead me to the most enjoyable future ^o^
  8. If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently? I'd probably not care so much about what I ate. I also wouldn't save so much money and instead spend it on holidays and days out more frequently. 
  9. To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken? I've controlled my choices, my future career etc. I didn't choose illnesses and deaths which altered the course of my life. 
  10. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things? Depends on the situation. If doing something right may hurt someone, I'd rather do the right thing.
  11. You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire.  They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend.  The criticism is distasteful and unjustified.  What do you do? I have had this happen before - I voiced that I liked my friend and that she really wasn't as bad as others say.
  12. If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be? Assuming a newborn could understand - I'd tell them to find a balance between work and fun. Work enough to earn the fun, but don't overwork to the point where your life is a waste :)
  13. Would you break the law to save a loved one? Most likely, though it depends on the law and the situation. I would steal, but I don't think I could kill unless in defense during an attack.
  14. Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity? Yes :) 
  15. What’s something you know you do differently than most people? Most people seem to see fault and ugliness in each other; I have yet to meet a single person who I thought was ugly or lacked any positive qualities :) I guess I'm positive of other people, and instead more critical of myself. 
  16. How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy? We are all unique!
  17. What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?  What’s holding you back? Travel more. Money. 
  18. Are you holding onto something you need to let go of? Perfection, and stress. I can't achieve the first, and the second is of no use to me. 
  19. If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why? Probably New Zealand - it's like a prettier, less cramped version of the UK :D 
  20. Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster? Nope, only once. I'm pretty patient.
  21. Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton? A joyful simpleton. Dumb and happy over intelligent and miserable any day. Though it depends on how worried the genius is, and whether or not I could solve the problem causing the worry. Having lived years of constant worry, I know firsthand how wearing it is. 
  22. Why are you, you? Biology and life experiences.
  23. Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend? Hard to say really - I like people who are easy to talk to, and in general I am quiet (unless I am with someone who can keep a conversation going!) So I guess I am not the kind of friend I would want :(
  24. Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you? Losing touch with a friend who lives near. This generally only happens when people just don't have time for you anymore or they  find someone they like more than you. 
  25. What are you most grateful for? My family and friends, for giving me the best moments on my life :)
  26. Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones? Neither D: They are too precious to me.
  27. Is it possible to know the truth without challenging it first? I suppose not. You can't really say something is 100% fact without testing it first. Perhaps with something obvious though, you can know the truth.
  28. Has your greatest fear ever come true? Not completely. It has partially before though.
  29. Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset?  Does it really matter now? Nope! 
  30. What is your happiest childhood memory?  What makes it so special? How happy everyone was :)
  31. At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive? When I saw firsthand how quickly life can be taken away, and how important it is to try and live it while you still can. 
  32. If not now, then when? As soon as possible!
  33. If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose? Limbs D: 
  34. Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever? I don't think I have ever said totally nothing, but I have spoken very little and felt that way :)
  35. Why do religions that support love cause so many wars? Because some religious people like to misinterpret their religion to feel justified in their own actions. 
  36. Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil? Maybe, maybe not. 
  37. If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job? Nope! I like to work, and I get anxious when I go too long without working. 
  38. Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing? I know this conflicts with the previous statement, but less work. I enjoy work when there isn't too much of it, and start to dislike it if I have to do it late into the night. 
  39. Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before? I try to keep each day a little different, and take steps closer to big goals, so no :)
  40. When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in? Recently with my university choice. I felt like it was a huge mistake, but there is a possibility of a good career, so I took it ^O^
  41. If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today? Just my closest family members. 
  42. Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous? No. Fame looks like hell to me and being more attractive isn't something I care about. I am happy with being me :) 
  43. What is the difference between being alive and truly living? Happiness and emotion. There have been moments in my past where I have felt nothing, or just sadness. That is not living. Being out, and experiencing things, progressing and feeling a range of emotions from good to bad is truly living :)
  44. When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?  If you know it is right, then do it now!
  45. If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake? Because sometimes a mistake can have a massive cost.
  46. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you? I would speak openly about more things.
  47. When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing? Well now that you mention it...
  48. What do you love?  Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love? I love my family. Sitting for 6 days beside my dying father until he passed was how I expressed this. 
  49. In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday?  What about the day before that?  Or the day before that? There may be some events in the past few days I remember.
  50. Decisions are being made right now.  The question is:  Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you? This bucketlist is my way of making my own decisions :)

50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind

 

1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

Depends. Sometimes I act responsible and serious (sometimes) and other times (*cough* most of the time) I act weird and irrational. So I dunno.

2. Which is worse, failing or never trying?

Never trying for sure. If you fail, you know you at least tried. But if you never try, you’ll never know if you would have failed or would have succeeded.

3. If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?

Because of expectations. Others might judge you or you’re afraid of disappointing them. So you do things you don’t like and don’t do things you do like. Sometimes we don’t do the things we like because we “don’t have time”. Or maybe we just don’t have the money to do what we like.

4. When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

I wish I will have done more, but the honest answer is that I think I will have said more.

5. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?

That no one will be judged for what they do, say or believe in so everyone can be themselves without being afraid.

6. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich?

I would do so many things. Like singing and making music, writing and reading, making pictures, travelling the world, hearing other people’s stories and just laughing and having fun.

7. Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing?

      I don’t get it, can someone explain?

8. If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently?

I wouldn’t delay things and I would be less lazy.

9. To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken?

Depends. My parents divorced when I was 3 years old or so, so my little sister and I were once in two weeks at my dad’s house and the other time just home. We lived in a lot of different houses because m mother kept moving, as a young kid you don’t have a say in that. Now that I’m older my mum asks my opinion more often, and school choices are mostly my own. My mum helps me, but it’s my life so my choice she says.

10. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?

Doing the right things, because right and wrong is hard to separate. You don’t have to do things right because you learn by failing.

11. You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire.  They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend.  The criticism is distasteful and unjustified.  What do you do?

I would say you can’t judge someone you don’t know. I would say that she is my friend and I would prove their criticism wrong.

12. If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be?

Live for the moment and try to make every second unforgettable.

13. Would you break the law to save a loved one?

Without a doubt.

14. Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity?

I can’t think of a specific moment, but I believe that insanity and creativity are very often connected.

15. What’s something you know you do differently than most people?

My mind works different I guess, I do before I think about it.

16. How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy?

Everyone is unique.

17. What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? What’s holding you back?

Haha check my Bucketlist !! I don’t have one thing or a number one thing I really want to do, because there are so many amazing things to do! The reason why I haven’t done those things is mostly money or age.

18. Are you holding onto something you need to let go of?

No, I guess I’m good.

19. If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?

England or Ireland. I really like both, just culture and stuff. Ireland is my number one though, I’ve always had this weird connection to Ireland. I’m in love with their culture, it started when I found out that there is a river, a town and some more things with my name, Shannon.

20. Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?

Yes I do. And no I don’t, I just like to push buttons.

21. Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton?

A joyful simpleton. Worrying is not something I really want to do all the time, intelligence is important but I think that joy and happiness are more important.

22. Why are you, you?

Because life is too short to be someone else.

23. Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?

Something like that yes.

24. Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you?

Losing touch with a close friend that lives right near me. Distance doesn’t mean anything to me with the internet these days. So then the choice is losing touch with a good friend or not, and that’s simple, of course I would want to keep touch.

25. What are you most grateful for?

For the right to be who I am and say what I think.

26. Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?

Lose all of my old memories. I have lived for 16 years right now but there are far more years ahead of me to make memories. Plus my friends and family can tell me about the memories I have lost and of course there are photos.

27. Is it possible to know the truth without challenging it first?

No, I don’t think so.

28. Has your greatest fear ever come true?

No and I hope it never will.

29. Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset?  Does it really matter now?

I can’t think of something and therefore I don’t think it matters now.

30. What is your happiest childhood memory?  What makes it so special?

I don’t really have one, my childhood was happy and carefree. Still I find it hard to remember a happy memory, even though the few bad memories come so easy.

31. At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?

Most of the time I feel alive, but really passionate? I don’t know.

32. If not now, then when?

When it’s time.

33. If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?

Absolutely nothing.

34. Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever?

No, I haven’t.

35. Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?

Because people find love so self-evident, so they start to find other things more important, such as: power, wealth and pride. Then they start wars to get those things, or to get more.

36. Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?

No. Most importantly I don’t think in black and white, good and evil. And besides, how can you label something or someone without doubting.

37. If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job?

I don’t have a job at the moment, but no I don’t think I would quit my job, only if I seriously dislike it.

38. Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?

More work that I enjoy, because if you enjoy it, why the hell not?

39. Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before?

This day, yes. When you are bored and do nothing, it’s just not a day that you will remember, or that is special. Same as school days, you do almost the same every damn week.

40. When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?

I’m still in the dark but my idea is glowing brighter.

41. If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today?

All my friends and family, and if there’s time left I would try to meet my idols.

42. Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?

Yes I would. “Live life for the moment because everything else is uncertain!” Louis Tomlinson has written in his Twitter status. Old people slowly lose their abilities, and eventually can’t do anything themselves anymore. My grandfather is over a hundred years old and he can’t even stand up by himself. When I can’t do simple things like that anymore, I want to commit euthanasia. So the choice is simple: I’d choose to be extremely attractive or famous and live (expected) 10 years less.

43. What is the difference between being alive and truly living?

Being alive is being able to breathe. But truly living is doing things you enjoy and feel alive.

44. When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?

When you have nothing to lose or just want to live for the moment regardless of the consequences.

45. If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake?

Because we are afraid to be judged, or to feel ashamed or humiliated.

46. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?

I would speak up and show who I am in a big crowd. Just to not be insecure anymore.

47. When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing?

When I tried to fall asleep last night.

48. What do you love?  Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love?

I love so many things. I try to only do or talk about what I like and enjoy.

49. In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday?  What about the day before that?  Or the day before that?

I don’t know. Some days are special and stand out, but others are roughly the same. Pictures, videos and souvenirs will keep the memories alive, but right now I can’t tell what I will remember in five years.

50. Decisions are being made right now.  The question is:  Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you?

Most of the time I am making them myself. Actually, I always make them myself. Sometimes someone else makes a decision but then it’s my choice to go along with it or stand up against it. You always make decisions yourself, consciously or unconsciously. Silence is a choice as well.

  21. Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton? Joyful simpleton, better to be happy than worried and sad

  34. Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever? No
  35. Why do religions that support love cause so many wars? Because one religion believes itself to be of a higher religion than another, they want more power over another religion instead of seeing another religion's point of view - everyone has the right to believe their own religion, but should not empower it onto another

  42. Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous? Nope - I think life would become boring and tedious if I were famous - imagine not being able to go about your everyday business without being constantly being interrupted by total strangers who think that they know you, from what they have seen/read about you in the media - I'd rather have another 10 years with my friends and family
  43. What is the difference between being alive and truly living? being alive means to exist - living means following your dreams, ambitions, taking risks

  45. If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake? Peer pressure mostly, by doing something wrong, other people make us feel bad about the situation without having the gumption to have a go themselves
  46. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you? Offer my opinions out to a wider audience 
  47. When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing? Lying in bed, waiting to go to sleep
  48. What do you love?  Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love? I love life, my family/friends and experiencing as much as I can, when I can - I don't need to express my love to my family and friends they know - but I like to surprise them with little surprises every now and then be it a little trinket/card or just a text message to see how they are =)
  49. In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday?  What about the day before that?  Or the day before that? Maybe not yesterday, but if something significant happened, like I traveled somewhere/experienced something other than every day life events - then yes probably 
  50. Decisions are being made right now.  The question is:  Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you? I make all my decisions myself, however, other people may take that decision out of your control, it's not a case of letting them, sometimes they have more authority to go above your head to overturn your decision - if that makes sense

Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before? Maybe not an entire day, but things during the day, Ive felt like it was a de ja vu way too many times 40. When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in? When I convinced my parents I wanted to go to school for photography, its something I love doing and only thing I could see myself doing for a career, but am I good enough to succeed? 41. If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today? Id have a party and invite all my friends and family. 42. Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous? No, why take away a part of my life for something so ridiculous. Famous people have no privacy, and why be super attractive, all you do is attract most people interested in only your looks. 43. What is the difference between being alive and truly living? If you’re living you’re happy, doing something you love, accomplishing all the things on your “bucket list” per say, but being alive you could be walking through life miserable missing all the chances to do anything to make you happy. 44. When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right? When you realize its worth any risk or reward to do whats right. 45. If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake? Because our mistakes make and break us, we repeat our mistakes and we try to stop that from happening. 46. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you? Be the person I truly am around everyone and not just a select group of people. 47. When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing? When Im in a quiet space, earlier today it happened. 48. What do you love? Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love? I love my job, my future career in photography, my friends, family, my pets, traveling, etc. Lately expressing my love for my family is difficult because I love them but can’t live in the same house as them, I tell my friends all the time how much I love them, my job, lately I haven’t been able to work due to my broken metatarsal but I can’t wait to get back to work, Ive been trying to take photos but walking itself is a struggle, but most people can tell how compassionate I am about photography. And Travel I openly expressed when I saved up and went to Italy, and how Im trying to save up to go to prague next spring. 49. In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday? What about the day before that? Or the day before that? I would remember yesterday because I helped my sister move to her first house, the day before that probably not and today, probably not, maybe if my foot wasn’t broken and I could do more things physically yes. 50. Decisions are being made right now. The question is: Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you? A mix between the both, taking in opinions of others and deciding what I should do.

  1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? I guess it depends. Most of the time I feel really old, like, as if I'm 70. At the same time, I often feel like a teenager, 14-15.
  2. Which is worse, failing or never trying? Failing is worse. Never trying leads to a lot more regret than failing at something.
  3. If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do? We grow up and make up too many excuses and put up way too many fences, many things seem scary and not reachable, when in reality most of the time its a matter of just taking one step forward. 
  4. When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done? Most probably hahahaha
  5. What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world? This will sound very harsh. I'd get rid of people with little to no compassion. The world would become so much better.
  6. If happiness was the national currency, what kind of work would make you rich? I'd open a book shop cafe and cook many things myself. 
  7. Are you doing what you believe in, or are you settling for what you are doing? Truth be told, I'm doing something that pays the bills and my way of life well. At the same time trying to do something I believe in and love doing - photography.
  8. If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently? I wouldn't care much about my food choices and my figure, would travel a lot more, although I've already traveled a lot. I'd spend more time with family and would have married that guy three years ago, just so I'd have a chance at having a family and kids. 
  9. To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life has taken? I've pretty much controlled most of what happened to me after a certain age. No regrets. 
  10. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things? Actually both.
  11. You’re having lunch with three people you respect and admire.  They all start criticizing a close friend of yours, not knowing she is your friend.  The criticism is distasteful and unjustified.  What do you do? I'd ask them to refrain from comments about that person because firstly, I can't stand gossip and badmouthing, and second, that person is my friend.
  12. If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be? I'd tell the child to never doubt his/her abilities, never listen to people who hold back, don't be afraid of taking risks and doing things you love. Ever.
  13. Would you break the law to save a loved one? Depends what it is but most probably yes.
  14. Have you ever seen insanity where you later saw creativity? Not yet. 
  15. What’s something you know you do differently than most people? I see reasons behind people's behavior and can me unbiased even if it concerns people close to me.
  16. How come the things that make you happy don’t make everyone happy? Pretty silly question. All people are different. What rocks one person's world might be horrific for the other.
  17. What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?  What’s holding you back? I want to start my photography business but very afraid of people. 
  18. Are you holding onto something you need to let go of? Fear of being judged. 
  19. If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why? Switzerland. Hands down. Quality of life, different culture, closer to what I'm used to, quality of people, a lot less immigrants. 
  20. Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster? No, I think its stupid.
  21. Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton? Joyful simpleton. I'm pretty smart as is and believe me, its not making me happier, quite the opposite. 
  22. Why are you, you? Genetics and life.
  23. Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend? Pretty much so.
  24. Which is worse, when a good friend moves away, or losing touch with a good friend who lives right near you? Neither. If he's a good friend, distance won't do harm to the friendship. Losing touch with a friend is part of life. If it happens, means we were just meant to be friends for longer. People come into your life for a reason and leave after that reason is fulfilled. 
  25. What are you most grateful for? For all the experiences I've had in my life and parents who aren't as bad as I thought when I was a teenager.
  26. Would you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones? Neither please.
  27. Is it possible to know the truth without challenging it first? Sometimes. That's called maturity and experience.
  28. Has your greatest fear ever come true? No and I hope it never will.
  29. Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset?  Does it really matter now? No, just like many other times. But its hard to keep calm and less upset over things that don't matter anyway. 
  30. What is your happiest childhood memory?  What makes it so special? To be honest even though my childhood was okay, I don't really have any such memories.
  31. At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?  Less than a year ago when I was photographing a friend of mine. It was scary as hell but yet it made me feel alive. And camping last summer. I realized I can actually do it.
  32. If not now, then when? As soon as possible, but not sooner than I'm over my fears.
  33. If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?  Only regrets and fears. Its stupid, I know.
  34. Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever? Um no.
  35. Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?  Because in my opinion religions are the true evil in this world. More harm than good is done in name of religion. And the meanest and heartless people I know are religious.
  36. Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?  Of course. Its called voice of reason and common sense.
  37. If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job? Hahaha the million dollar question. Gimme the million first then we talk hehe
  38. Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing? More work I enjoy. Doing work that is not enjoyable is hell.
  39. Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before? Unfortunately yes.
  40. When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in? Last summer when I moved to new city to switch my job. 
  41. If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today? Parents and my brother of course. I don't have anyone else closer than that.
  42. Would you be willing to reduce your life expectancy by 10 years to become extremely attractive or famous?  Probably no. From what I know, neither ever made anyone happier.
  43. What is the difference between being alive and truly living? Living a routine life vs living a life full of things you love doing with people you truly enjoy.
  44. When is it time to stop calculating risk and rewards, and just go ahead and do what you know is right?  Its always that time. The moment you start calculating is the moment you put your dreams on hold.
  45. If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake? Because too many are afraid of being judged and others make their fears so big they'd seem impossible to bead.
  46. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you? Oh my.... so many things.... I'd approach guys first, dress a lot differently, go to the beach very often and wear a bikini, won't use makeup, talk freely of my opinions.
  47. When was the last time you noticed the sound of your own breathing? Last night.
  48. What do you love?  Have any of your recent actions openly expressed this love?  Food. Yes, I cook all the time hahahaha
  49. In 5 years from now, will you remember what you did yesterday?  What about the day before that?  Or the day before that? Probably, unfortunately no.
  50. Decisions are being made right now.  The question is:  Are you making them for yourself, or are you letting others make them for you? When it comes to decisions, I make them myself - either to act on something or to step back and let the nature take its course.
