I was poking around Facebook today and one of my friends had filled out a “Getting to Know You” questionnaire, and I thought it to be a fun idea to do, especially since I feel like I’ve met so many new people and was curious about getting to know some of them better as well (see new FB status). The thing that I didn’t realize is that I had done this same questionnaire in 2009, before I had moved to San Francisco, Hong Kong, or Bangkok. It was startling to see how some of the answers had stayed the same, and how I had changed. The most interesting thing to see was the change in the MANNER in which I answered some of the questions. The voice had changed. It was great to see some personal growth take place over the last four years.
This got me thinking that it would be a great idea to answer some questions for yourself each year, either on your birthday or perhaps, as the year comes to a close. Then, storing it somewhere on say, Google Drive, Dropbox, or Evernote, you’d be able to create a new copy for yourself so that you can archive some of the bigger details of your life. 🙂
After some thinking… here’s a list of questions that I’ve come up with.
As we continue to know ourselves more deeply, it’s good to continue probing ourselves to truly know what our heart’s desire is. Recording some of these questions and learning is something that I have not been good at to date, and I’m excited to get started. 🙂
