10 Questions To Make You Think – April

It’s always good to reflect upon ourselves and our lives so every month I post 10 questions to help you do this. It all started in November last year. Here are the April questions:

    1. Did you have fun today? Because?
      Your answer to this question should be yes. We should have fun every day. If you haven’t had fun today then go do something fun right now.

    2. If you could wish for one thing to happen today; what would it be?
      Today is just one day but your wish represents something you want and it’s always important to pay attention to what you want, even the small things.
    3. What’s a political issue that interests you?
      This might be something that really matters to you and working on it will make you feel useful.
    4. What is your secret passion?
      Your secret passion is something that is very close to your heart. It’s not related to anyone else but you.

    5. What do you think is your biggest shortcoming?
      Find ways to make it less of a problem or even use it for your benefit.
    6. What do you want to say when someone asks “What do you do”?
      This is probably what you want to do the most, what would make you proud and feeling good about yourself.
    7. How would your parents describe you? (You can call them and ask.)
      Sometimes the way your parents see you is very different from the way you see yourself. I think that can bring some really useful insights.
    8. Where do you feel most at home?
      It’s good to have a place to call home. It comforts us and makes us feel like we belong.

    9. Write down a problem you solved today.
      Sometimes we only look at the negative things and forget to pay attention to the useful and good things we’ve done. There’s no great relief than solving a problem. If not today, then think about the last one recently.
    10. What “type” of person are you?
      This question is open to interpretation. Knowing what type of person you are will help you make decisions and be more aware of what makes you happy.

Why You Should Love Those Freckles

“Let someone love you just as you are. As flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you might feel, as unaccomplished as you might think you are. And let that someone be you.” – Sandra King

Sometimes it’s much easier to love and forgive others than yourself. We use words with ourselves that we’d never ever use to speak with others. ‘I can’t believe you did this. You’re so stupid.’ ‘You’re useless’ ‘You can’t do anything right.’ Would you say something similar to this to your friends? So why say it to yourself? You should be your own friend. When you love yourself, you emanate a different energy that makes others like to be around you. It’s like a cycle. So make this your resolution for next year: Love Yourself.

Here are 5 self-love songs to help you work on that:

Pink – F*cking Perfect

You’re so mean when you talk
About yourself. You were wrong.
Change the voices in your head
Make them like you instead.

India.Arie – Video

When I look in the mirror and the only one there is me
Every freckle on my face is where it’s suppose to be
And I know my creator didn’t make no mistakes on me
My feet, my thighs, my Lips, my eyes, I’m loving what I see

Christina Aguilera – Beautiful

I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can’t bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can’t bring me down… Oh no
So don’t you bring me down today

Lady Gaga – Born This Way

“There’s nothing wrong with loving who you are”
She said, “‘Cause he made you perfect, babe”
“So hold your head up girl and you’ll go far

Don’t hide yourself in regret
Just love yourself and you’re set
I’m on the right track, baby
I was born this way

I am not a fan of Lady Gaga but I think these lyrics are kind of awesome so I found this clip from Glee. I really like the idea of the T-shirts:

Mariah Carey – Hero

So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you’ll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you
