Weekly Wondering // Week 25

I found this set of questions, '365 thought provoking questions to ask yourself this year', last year and bookmarked the webpage. After having rediscovered it I am answering 7 of the questions each week  until I complete the year. 

168.What has been the most terrifying moment of your life thus far?

There are two things that  spring to mind. Both are very different. The most emotionally terrified I remember being was when my Granda was ill in hospital before he passed. When he first got taken into hospital my parents were on holiday and so I was the driver to take my Nana to visit him (the hospital is about 50 mile away). I was also the one who the nurses would give the updates to and if seeing your Granda in such a bad state wasn't enough, all that responsibility just added to the terror.
The other was more of a physical fright. My skydive..well the flight more specifically not the actually dive!

169.Who is the strongest person you know?

My Dad. He's just an all around amazing person, full stop. He puts up with so much, he works so hard and he is so selfless. If it weren't for his constant help and support I wouldn't be where I am now. He always tells me not to worry about anything. He's pretty damn special!

170.If you could take a single photograph of your life, what would it look like?
If it were to depict recent times it would suck. It would be in a very urban setting, dirty and the ground covered in glass. My little family would look tired and sad. But to depict my life in general, like what it will be soon it would be in the country, with sun shining, surrounded by birds and animals and huge grins on our faces. 

171.Is the reward worth the risk?
Well that depends on the reward doesn't it?!

172.For you personally, what makes today worth living?

The thought of tomorrow.
And not tomorrow as in Monday. Tomorrow as in the next day of my life.

173.What have you done in the last year that makes you proud?

I'm proud of how attached and devoted I am to this here bloggy. I'm proud of my efforts to help others ie. doing the Race for life, sending off a Shoebox to operation Christmas child and the hamper I put together for a local cat and dog shelter. I am also proud of sponsoring a dog with the Dogs Trust and  the charity event I have/am organizing for this coming June! I think that's it though. :/ I need to make a conscious effort to do more. 

174.What did you learn recently that changed the way you live?

Nothing recently I don't think. Boring answer I know! 


  1. These are really thought filled questions. I don't even know if I could answer most of them. Especially the first one. I love the photograph question. I would really need to think hard to come up with an answer for that.

    1. Oh they are getting harder as the series goes on haha!! I always draft the post and come back to it many times before it's time to post. x

  2. Awwww. Your dad sounds like an awesome guy!
    I can totally picture you living in the country surrounded by animals. It suits you :) Hope it happens soon!
    Skydiving? Yikes! You're brave!

    1. He is!! :D I'm very lucky to have two amazing parents and friends.
      Oh thank you haha me too, very soon!
      And yeah man, haven't you seen the video of me doing it? It's on my bucket list post - linked in my sidebar as a favorite post ;) x

  3. Skydiving...eek! I want to do it someday, but I'm scared of heights at the same time! I'm sorry about your Grandpa...that had to be incredibly overwhelming and scary. It was hard going to the hospital when my grandma was hovering on the brink of death, and I wasn't even the one "in charge" and receiving updates!

    1. You really need to do it! Such an awesome experience you will forget your fear. I wasn't keen of the flight up but the fall itself was magical :)

      And thank you, it was difficult but I'm glad it was me rather than my Nana having to go through all of that alone :)

  4. These types of posts are so awesome! It is great to get to know more about the blogger behind the screen! Thanks for sharing!
