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!
