I am starting a new series on this blog called the soul of living. Focusing on remembering to live while we analyze our lives. I plan on interviewing inspiring people to share their answers to some questions I pulled from the famous Proust Questionnaire, as well as what living means to them.
To start it off I am answering the questions myself:
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Being in a place or with some that makes me feel like I belong.
What is your favorite virtue?
What is it you most dislike?
People who are not authentic.
What is your motto?
Strength in grace.
What is your most treasured possession?
A wooden Buddha that my mom was given in childhood. She was told you rubbed its stomach three times and make a wish, then set him standing upside down. She passed it along to me as a child with the same instructions (shown above).
Which living person do you most admire?
My friend Andrea. She is so inspiring in her aesthetic and actions. She is the best person I know. She is also so humble this will shock her to read!
What is your current state of mind?
Sad. But that’s okay. It’s healthy to let yourself feel your emotions, and they always come and go.
What does living mean to you?
Connection, with myself and others. Getting out and exploring the world we live in, both intellectually and physically. Having moments of pure joy that inspire laughter. And, of course, love.
