For the explanation of what is going on here, please do click here and have a quick read.
Other than that, in short, I am answering 7 of these 365 thought provoking questions each week until I complete the year. I already did this in 2013 and am revisiting them to compare my answers.
What are you most grateful for?
Everything! Having a roof over my head, food in my stomach, bills paid on time, my little job, my parents, Jake, Baker and my tiny but strong handful of (3) friends. I also thank my lucky stars that I was born where I was and live in the most stunning county in the UK.
Is stealing to feed a starving child wrong?
Yes. And no. Stealing is stealing, no matter the reason but in a proper world there would be no children (or anyone for that matter) starving requiring anyone to steal. There are also many other options before stealing to feed your family. Food waste is a disgusting problem in our country - and others- and if it was managed better everyone would be able to have the basic human need of a full belly fulfilled.
What do you want most?
To own a house (not throw £30,000+ in rent away like I have the past 5 years) and have no neighbours, where Baker can go out for the toilet or play whenever he wanted instead of having to check outside to make sure the coast is clear first. But that would be in an absolutely perfect world.
Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?
Doing the right things - always! Shouldn't we all always we focused on doing good in the world with so much bad around us to counter? If you try to do the right thing and don't do it right, the fact that you tried and failed is better than if you not attempted to do the right thing at all I think.
What has life taught you recently?
That no matter how the world progresses in knowledge, science, and technology, money and religion still rules, motivating people so much so that they would rather take steps back in the natural progression and evolution of our species than disregard riches and what is written in ancient books.
What is the one thing you would most like to change about the world?
Where do you find inspiration?
All around me! Particularly outdoors in nature.
Make sure to look back on this same post from 2013 here, and see the differences in my answers! (I completed writing this before checking back to my old answers by the way). You can also see the series in whole from last time here and of course last week's Weekly Wondering here.
