Ok, so here we go.  I’ll warn you, my answers don’t really go along with the fun spirit of the tag:

    • that I’m ok financially
  • When did I experience joy this week?
    • I’m not sure that I did.
  • List a small victory/success?
    • I’m sure there were some, but nothing’s jumping to mind at the moment.

    • My mental health.
  • What do I love about my self?

  • What/who inspires me the most?
    • Fellow bloggers
  • Where does my pain originate?
    • That would depend on what kind of pain, but in general, it comes down to depression.
  • What are my strengths?
    • Intelligence, organization
  • What is something I’ve always wanted but too scared to get?
    • I don’t know that I’ve ever wanted anything that scared me.
  • What is something I would love to learn?
    • To speak another language, but I don’t think I’d actually be motivated to do it unless it was in my face regularly.
  • Where would I want to live my ideal life?
    • Where I am now is fine.
  • Where would I like to travel in the next 5 years?
    • The places that were next up on my list were Slovenia, Croatia, Nepal, and Tibet, but I’ve pushed those to the back burner and I think Italy will be next.
  • What can I do to take better care of myself?
    • Get more physical activity
  • What hobbies would I like to try?
    • None that I can think of.
  • When have I done something that I thought I couldn’t do?
    • Probably at one point I thought I couldn’t travel alone, but I have.
  • At the end of my life, what do I want my legacy to be?
    • I won’t be around anymore, so people can think what they want, which probably won’t be much of anything.

I found this tag kind of challenging, because I’m not in a great headspace at the moment.   Depression piped up with quick negative response to a lot of questions, while other questions I just had a hard time coming up with any answers at all. I could have waited until another time to do this, but then again there’s some value in just being genuine even in the not-so-pretty moments.

Rather than tag anyone specific, I’ll invite anyone who’s interested to jump right on in.

    Loved your answers. Being pretty much in the negative mindset lately myself I could relate to a lot of things. I really appreciate your genuineness, what I would probably do would be I’d wait until I’d be more positive and then do the tag, so I love how you did it right away showing us the real and present state of your mind.

    I love this tag, count me in 😘
