Thought questions #9 - #20.

Hallo meine Lieben,

I am way behind answering the 365 thought provoking questions. I found them on my friend Martha's blog. My friend Celeste is answering them too. I will try to catch up as soon as possible! I hope you are all doing great. 

#9. What’s a belief that you hold with which many people disagree?

I believe that being vegan is the right way for me to live my life. I don't want other beings to be hurt just because of me. 

#10. What can you do today that you were not capable of a year ago?

I can knit. At least a teeny tiny bit. I am still working on my skills. 

#11. Do you think crying is a sign of weakness or strength?

It can be both. It depends on what you are crying about. 

#12. What would you do differently if you knew nobody would judge you?

I don't even know what to say here. I usually don't care that much what people think of me but I guess I would speak my mind even more often. 

#13. Do you celebrate the things you do have?

Of course. I mean, there are many things we can be thankful for and it is easy to forget about them. Like having people who love you, being in good health...we should not take things like that for granted. 

#14. What is the difference between living and existing?

Living means that you give your life a purpose. 

#15. If not now, then when?

Good question. I am really trying not to procrastinate but sometimes you just can't help yourself. 

#16. Have you done anything lately worth remembering?

I tried to be there for a desperate woman who needed somebody. 

#17. What does your joy look like today?

New books to read. But there are a lot of things that give me joy. My loved ones for example. 

#18. Is it possible to lie without saying a word?

Yes, of course it is. 

#19. If you had a friend who spoke to you in the same way that you sometimes speak to yourself, how long would you allow this person to be your friend?

I guess I would still be my friend but I would get mad at myself a lot. I tend to be very hard to myself but I am trying to get better at that because it really does not help anybody. 

#20. Which activities make you lose track of time?

Reading. Spending time with animals (my own and others). Watching shows or movies.  Drawing. 

Have a great day!


  1. I love getting to know you more by reading your answers :) That pic with the clouds is great! And so true - being original makes life way more interesting - and happy :)
    Love your answers - they show how incredibly caring and loving you are - no matter if it's a human being or an animal. I love that about you! You're a wonderful and very special person. And I'm very happy we're friends! :)
    Ich drücke Dich gaaaaanz feste, liebe Katrin.

    1. I am glad you like the post, Beate! I loved that pic as well. It is so true and pretty. :)
      And thank you so much for all the sweet words, you really make me blush! And smile! So happy to call you my friend!
      Ich drueck Dich ganz ganz dolle!

  2. what an interesting set of questions. I will head over to check out the rest and may start answering on my blog too.

    If not now, then when? - that's a tough one.

    ich wuensch dir noch einen schoenen tag. LG Petra

    1. That is great, I would love to read your answers! There really are some though questions which make you think!

      Wuensch Dir eine tolle Woche!

  3. Such a cute pic :)

    I started knitting too, I was so proud of myself!

    Books are joy, pure joy...

    1. I really like that pic as well!

      I have seen that you started knitting too! I think you are much better than I am!

      Books rule!

  4. Thank you for sharing your thoughtful responses, I really love to getting to know more! Hehe to #20, these activites are easy to lose track of time! :)

    1. Glad you like the responses, Rika! I can easily lose time when I have a good book to read!

  5. I am also incredibly hard on myself... but I would know that friend was coming from a good place and trying to make me a better person.

    1. Yeah, I agree. I guess we are just trying to push ourselves!

  6. I always lose track of time reading, too! When I was caught up in the Harry Potter series, it was ALL I wanted to do. I would skip taking a shower just so I could read another chapter! :)

    1. I felt the same way when I was reading the Harry Potter series. Well, I still feel like it...even when I read those books for the 10th time! :)

  7. I love that pic with the clouds! How cool that you're learning to knit. I learned a long time ago but haven't picked it up again in years. I really should though!

    1. I haven't done any knitting for a while so I really need to start again. It is so much fun! I want to learn how to sew too!
