Everybody has lots of favorite things! Have you ever thought about the ones in your life? I came up with this list of 101+ questions about my favorite things 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!
