I found this little questionnaire on a blog and I thought it would be fun to fill out this Friday. I did it a few years ago on a personal blog, and I haven’t looked at it in a while so I thought I would fill this out first then compare, to see how I have changed/ grown.
Why do you blog and how has it affected your life? I blog because I love to write and I needed a creative outlet in my life. As a mother I found that I frequently felt that I needed to do something for myself, something I could be passionate about, that might involve my motherhood, but also be more for me. And starting a blog seemed like a fun way to accomplish that goal. I have really enjoyed it and look forward to the creation process for the blog, whether it be just my thoughts, or actually doing something and then posting about it.
What is your biggest fear? Losing a loved one. I really haven’t experienced much loss in my life yet and even though I have a very strong testimony that this life is not the end, and we will see our loved ones again, it still seems like losing someone I loved would just be the hardest.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? I have no idea. That is the question we ask ourselves every day. I definitely hope our family will grow in the next five years and I hope the next five years are filled with adventures, but other than that, I don’t know where we will be or even what I want exactly. Time will tell.
What is your most awkward/embarrassing moment? Honestly I don’t know. I am sure I am awkward and embarrassing more than I realize. Whenever this question is posed I always think of a time at church. I was in primary and was asked to give the closing scripture and prayer. My brother was standing in the back of the room to pick me up. I stumbled through the scripture and started the prayer with “in the name of Jesus Christ” instead of “dear Heavenly Father.” It was honestly so embarrassing for me, and it was even worse since my brother was there to witness it.
If you could meet anyone, real or fictional, who would you choose? I have been pondering this question for a while now. Probably an author. J.K. Rowling has always been my answer but maybe I would like to meet Karma Wilson, Jane Yolen, or Sandra Boynton.
What is something you wonder about a lot? I wonder about what I should do with my life all the time. I wonder if I am using my time here on earth to the best of my ability.
Where do you find your greatest inspiration? Motherhood has been my biggest inspiration in my life so far. Being with a little girl who is so sweet, full of energy and confidence and creativity, it builds me up and inspires me to do the things I am most proud of.
Tell us about a favorite memory from growing up. When I was little we had these awesome stairs into our living room. My brother and I would get something like a slippery sleeping bag, my brothers basketball court mat that was really slippery or a pool floaty and ride it down the stairs over and over. I bet my mom loved that!
