THE POWER OF // "Asking yourself deep, reflective questions..." by Kelly Mason

Updated: Nov 23, 2020





During this time I am of course finding it hard to sit and binge watch netflix all day while being limited to what I can actually do after only arriving back in the UK, with not much notice, only two days ago... So, as usual and of course I find myself searching for meaningful things to take up my time and I stumbled across an article of "50 deep questions to ask yourself."





So, I answered them and here is what I answered...




When was the last time I told myself”I love you” ?

This is something that I dont think that I have ever asked myself in all of my years, I have said it plenty to those around me and feel it for many but never have a said these words to myself before, I had stated similar things like “ I am enough “ or “ you are doing good “ “ Dont give up & “ You are beautiful” but never “ I love you “ Maybe I will give it a try and see what happens…

Am I a better person today than I was yesterday?

I cant say if I am a better person today, what I can say is today I have tried my best.

Are my actions guided by love or fear?

When my actions are guided by love I feel as though I am limitless. All is limitless. Everything can come true… An yes, I find myself in this state many times however not all the time - I’d always work on being in love more than in fear - it is one of my life’s missions..

Am I a good example for those around me?

In some ways yes. In others No.

Is the life that I am living the life I want to be living?

Look, who knows… Basically yes. But would I want more security? More successes ? More of things physical, metal, spiriually? yes of course… its what drives me and I am starting to believe that if im not striving for more I will potentially become stagnant and numb.


What would I do with my life if I knew there were no limits?

I have no idea .

Do the people I surround myself with add any value to my life?

Most of them.


Am I a Human Being or a Human Doing?

For sure a human doing as a human being. Which I think is ok.

Am I following the crowd blindly or am I listening to my own heart and intuition?

I always listen to my heart and intuition… this way, I have found, whether its a success or a failure I accept it totally.

What would I do differently if I knew nobody would judge me?

What ? Hmmm maybe be louder with new people.

Do I treat myself with the love and respect I truly deserve?

I don’t think so.

See above.

What is one thing I could start doing today to improve the quality of my life?

Yes but over the last two years I have been a restless angry pain in the ass at times.

I hope so but sometimes I dont feel they understand what I am doing.

God.

If I were to give one piece of advice to a newborn child, what would it be?

For sure. But I try and work through it each and everytime I practice Yoga.

No.

When was the last time I made a new friend?

I rarely make good friends but I would say one of my last most significant friend making was over this season in Goa.


Does my presence add value to those around me?

I hope so. Not always I am sure - It depends what I am bringing to the table on the occasion.

That its all going to be ok.


Am I on the right path?

I think im on "A" path that can be right for me I believe.

Emma.

Yeah. I’ve gotten pretty used to it over the years.

Creating beauty in this World.

In a tiny house with Nature around me.

Do I love myself as much as I expect others to love me?

I dont expect others to love me, I would love if they loved what I had to offer.

So I would like to say I love what I have to offer as much as I want, but do not expect, it from others.

What am I most thankful for?

Life itself.
