Yes, I ask myself that quite a bit. Espically when I’m having bad days. I get over it by just telling myself that if I dont like it, I can just make myself change it. Then I think about how worse off I could be and I get over it pretty quick.

I think everyone has a moment or two like that. You are not alone but make sure you are able to answer that question so that you can either prevent or recreate the situation.

All the time. But then, I am a bit dizzy and daydream a lot so I drift in and out really. I guess sometimes you just linda catch up with yourself and “ha! Look at that!”

Are you kidding – my life has been so effing random, weird, amazing and poetically stunning that I often just shake my head and think, “How the hell did I end up here??” If it’s in a good way I marvel at the amazingness of life and my blessed good fortune; if it’s in a bad way I figure it was to learn a good lesson that will serve me well later on.

Sorry-to answer the question: yes; I don’t think we’re alone on this one either…like the others, I would just say to take stock of your situation and realize that to enjoy life is to enjoy the journey.

I ask myself that alot too, but even more often I ask, “where do I go from here?”

oh! I know how I got here. The same way my daughter got here. The Q I ask myself is “why am I here?”

Yes, frequently and I think it’s great for perspective. I find it very grounding to look at where you’ve been, where you are, and where you’re going. I woke up one morning after a cross-country trip and thought “how the hell did I wind up in Washington State?”

Yes. I have an awesome job, apartment, car and boyfriend and am going to school for PhD in the fall. I was 96% sure I was going to end up white trash.

I am at the point in my life where I look at my life and think how can one person be as lucky as I am to get to live my life . I have surrounded myself with the most awesome people. I have done so many wonderful things. I say my prayers for the blessings God has bestowed on me every day!
