1. Do you believe in fate?
The romantic, day-dreamer part of me likes to believe that we all have a pre-destined path to take in our lives, that everything that happens, happens for a reason. It’s an easy cop-out for things I don’t want to think too long about. The logical, the down-to-earth part of me, on the other hand, the greatest part of me, just scoffs at the idea of fate. That part beliefs that life is a combination of circumstances that can change in the blink of an eye. Free will and all, ya'know.
2. If Karma was to visit you now, would it be kind or kick you in the butt?
Hmmm, I’d like to say that it would be kind because I am a kind person. The truth is somewhere in the middle, I think. I can be kind and sweet and caring when I want to, but not being all those things is a lot easier, so I may have slipped up here and there. So, instead of kicking me in the arse, I think it’ll slap me around the head and tell me to do better next time.
3. Do you believe you have lived another life previous to this one?
I honestly don’t know. I’ve never given it much thought. ‘Maybe’ is the safe answer for now.
4. What do you believe in with an unshakable resolve?
I believe that there isn’t a bigger meaning to life. You are born and then, after an x-number of years, you die. That’s it. It’s up to you to make something worthwhile of the time in between.
5. What one factor influences your life the most?
Health. I’ve an auto-immune disease that rears its ugly head at the most inconvenient times. My life, from what I eat and drink to how much I exercise to what I can wear or not is defined by this disease. Currently I’m at crossroads because medication isn’t working as it should and I have a difficult decision to make.
