Berry's Introspection Meme


Meme instructions: Answer the following questions and don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments.  You will find Berry's Original Meme here.  

  1. Regardless of your current number, how old do you actually feel?  Some days my responsibilities weigh me down and I feel older old old, but generally I feel much younger than I am.
  2. Which is worse, failing or never trying? Never trying, definitely.  If you don't try, you will never know what you could have achieved.  Some of my best lessons have been learned through failure.
  3. If the average human life span was 40 years, how would you live your life differently? Travel, travel, travel and travel some more, and not worry so much about what others think of me.
  4. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things? Boring as it might sound, I always try to do the right thing. Of course, at times I fail, but I always try, even when it comes back to bite me on the bum.
  5. Would you rather be a worried genius or a joyful simpleton? No question, joyful simpleton, because I am sure my life would be much easier if I didn't analyse or over think things.
  6. Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend? In all honesty, probably not, because I can be pretty useless at initiating contact with people.  I guess I just don't crave company, I just pootle around happily in my own little universe (or my "burrow" as my best friend irl calls it), and time goes by without me realising it.  It doesn't mean I don't think of my friends, because I do, but I am not good at putting the thought into action.  My oldest friend in sl, the only person I "brought over" to this sl incarnation, probably doesn't realise how much I appreciate that he has not given up on me yet in spite of this.
  7. Do you remember that time 5 years ago when you were extremely upset? Does it really matter now?  No it doesn't matter, and I rarely think of it, but sometimes something will remind me and I get that familiar sinking feeling in my stomach.
  8. If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job? No, because my job is caring for a disabled relative.  If I was still employed in my last job then hell yes, I would leave in a heart beat.
  9. If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today?  My family and my cat.
  10. What do you feel is the difference between being alive and truly living? Being alive is waking up every morning and doing whatever you need to do to get through the day.  Truly living is when you find something (or someone) you are passionate about, and live in that moment, not letting what has past or what might be, come between you and living.
  11. If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make a mistake? Because we fear people are judging us, because we grow up in a society where failure is seen as a sign of weakness.
  12. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?  Wow, tough one.  I really cant think of anything right now.
  13. If you could offer a newborn child only one piece of advice, what would it be? Don't stick beads up your nose.
