The 50 Questions That Will Free Your Mind - Part Eight


36. Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?  I really don't think it's possible. There are so many things in this life that are in between, that are gray. So many things are not black and white. Even something that seems absolutely good or absolutely evil may have a layer that will surprise you. I just don't think that anything is that simple.

37. If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job?  Yes. I mean, hello, I work as a server in a restaurant. Some days it's okay but I don't love it. HOWEVER, I'd find something else to do with my time. If I was married, I'd probably have children. I'd stay at home with them and I'd write. Or I'd find a job that gives me joy and I'd do that. Or volunteer. I certainly wouldn't be idle. That gets boring pretty fast.

38. Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?  Hm. On the one hand, having less work would allow me to do more things I love. But having more work that I actually enjoy would be something I love, right? I think I'd probably would rather have more work that I actually enjoy doing. Doing something you love is never wrong, right?

39. Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before?  Sometimes. I mean, right now I feel like I'm waiting for something big to happen. Every day seems relatively similar to the last. But I still try to find something happy in each day. Just because a day isn't extraordinary doesn't mean there isn't something good to be found.

40. When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?  When I decided to end my marriage. That time was very dark for me, despite the fact that I tried to act brave. But I knew I deserved so much more and at the very least I deserved to be happy. Some days the only way I got through was the belief that I deserved better, the belief that happiness was not too much to ask for. Sometimes the glow was so dim for me. But it was always there.

I don't think you'd ever be idle. :)


Your answer to # 40 reaffirms my belief that you are truly one of the strongest people I "know," Krysten. :)

whoa. that good and evil question is tricky...

Agreed with Amy, that first question is hard. I personally (not that you asked, but I'm saying it anyway!) believe that there is definitely good and evil, and that the world wants to make us believe differently so they can take advantage of us. That said, I also believe there is a story behind every action and I believe in giving people the benefit of the doubt. We don't know everything, but if our heart tells us something is true then we shouldn't back away from it.


i love all these questions! great posts!

i like how you say "Just because a day isn't extraordinary doesn't mean there isn't something good to be found."
that is just what i needed today. some perspective. thank you!


If I won a million bucks I would quit my job too and find a new one that I actually really enjoyed. I wish I was one of those people who liked going to work everyday.

My leap into the dark was definitely moving to Australia!


WOW! I am impressed that you have 1,000 posts! Go you!!! :) I'll for sure enter that giveaway.

As usual, I love your answers. And couldn't agree more with the one about finding something you love doing. I wouldn't mind working around the clock if it meant I was expressing myself, connecting with others, and experiencing life the way that I've always wanted to... through my writing. That would be the ideal. But yea, if I won a million dollars, I would definitely be outta here in a heartbeat!

I love that you answered that question on moral relativism without a yes or no, thus proving its existence. The geek in me is grinning at you.


If I won a million dollars, I'd for sure quit my job. Not even sure if I would give two weeks notice...


I would totally love more work to do that I love doing!

I would definitely quit my job! I would then be able to start my business without worrying about money.

Happy Thursday!

I think we all wish we could win a million bucks. I would pay off all my student loans. No fun I know but at least that stress would be gone.
