SheilaSchnauzies is a Miniature Schnauzer rescuer, writer, crochet designer, gardener, crafter, wife, mom & friend living in Omaha, NE.

Everybody has lots of favorite things! Have you ever thought about the ones in your life? One day I was in the mood to think about this, and I wrote down 101 questions to ask myself about them. I used it as an exercise in appreciation for the wonderful things, places, people, animals and experiences I've had the privilege of encountering in my lifetime!

Sometimes it's just a great idea to stop and think about this. A little introspection can be a good thing. If you've been on a quest for self-improvement, this might be a good activity to try.

Try filling out this quiz or have a friend or your family do it too and compare your answers! You might just learn some things about yourself or others!

Sometimes it's also a good idea to look at our not-so-favorite things and memories too—after all, we do learn from those!

Here's an Idea...

Why not try using this quiz as a get-acquainted activity at your next get-together? Or, pass it around to your social media connections!

      • anonymous 3 years ago

        It can be an exercise in humility, allowing us to see ourselves as we really are, flaws and all, helping us to gain a more realistic perspective. It definitely keeps the "ego" in check. ;)

        Knowing one's self has the wonderful added bonus effect of not being so hard on yourself or others when we make mistakes, because all humans make a lot of mistakes. So, when we get to know ourselves, it can lead us to being more loving, patient and less critical of ourselves and others. :)
