6 Questions to Ask Yourself : Question 1

So I was doing a little web browsing and came upon this website: http://zenhabits.net/2008/09/6-questions-to-ask-yourself-to-get-the-most-out-of-life/ The article, as can be inferred, is called "6 Questions to Ask Yourself to Get the Most Out of Life." Now, I'm not really much for zen thought, but I figured I'd give this a go. The plan is to write 6 entries, each one focusing on a question. On to business... Question 1: Who do I love, and what am I doing about it?

Let's tackle the 1st part... Who do I love?
This seems to be rather vague, but I guess that's the point: to make you really think. Who do I love...? Well, my family, of course. We all have our problems, our faults, but, in the end, it's our family that is always there for us, no matter what, no questions asked. I also love my boyfriend. :) I love my Kitty Kitty, Lily, and Charlamagne (cats) and Moo Moo / Maggie and Zola (dogs). I love my friends as well, but there are too many of them to list
on this blog (and it saves me from hurting a person that I leave out were I to actually put a list to paper... or... internet. Whatever.).

I'm sure there are other "whos" that I love, but I think that suffices for now. If I feel like adding, I'll come back later.

Moving onward...

What am I doing about it?

My family: Not enough, that's for sure. You know, it seems to me that, because I know I can always rely on my family, I take them for granted and let those relationships slack a little more than I would other relationships. I need to work on that.

My boyfriend: I put up with him. haha No, that's not true (If we were actually to get down to it, he puts up with me!). I'm there for him. If he needs me, all he has to do is ask or even hint that he needs me. I tell him the truth, painful or not. I joke with him. I have fun with him. I am serious with him. Ok, ok, ok... Enough of the lovey-dovey crap.

Kitty Kitty & Lily: I give them hugs and kisses whenever I possibly can. I take care of them when they have the sniffles, like Lily did this past week. I express
Kitty Kitty's anal glands (I know, gross, but it has to be done!) when she starts scooting across the carpet. I feed them and make sure they have water (My roommate and I just bought them a new water fountain!!! So exciting. They love it.). I leave them alone when they're being antisocial jerks but accept them quickly when they want me to rub their cute little faces. Oh, my goodness. I'm officially a cat lady. Unfortunate.

Oh well! I guess I'm an abnormal cat lady, because I love dogs so much. They call me... The Animal Lady! Man alive, I'm a dork...

Moo Moo / Maggie & Zola: See above, except with out the vet stuff, because I'm not their often enough to take care of their veterinary needs.

My friends: I try to listen. I know I'm not perfect at it, but I do my best. I crack jokes when they need a laugh. I cry when they need someone with which to commiserate. I compliment them whenever I see something that I admire. I encourage them as best as I can and support them in whatever choices they make, but if they ask for my opinion I will share it (and sometimes I'll even share it if they don't ask....... Which I should probably work on...).

I think that's it for now. That's all I can think of, at any rate. I am quickly realizing that I'm a big, fat dork. For real. This, in general, was a really weird blog.

The questions to follow are much more... biting, I guess, dealing with the kind of person I have come to be, what I'm doing with my life, helping others, etc... I think this will be a good little series.

See you tomorrow with the next installment: Am I pursuing my dream, or is fear stopping me?
