If you could turn back time…

Well, maybe not turn it back completely, but what if you could send your younger self a message?

Would you give yourself advice?  Offer up some needed encouragement?  Tell yourself that everything is going to turn out okay?

Or maybe warn yourself away from some activity, an investment of money or time or self…  Perhaps you’d warn yourself to stay away from somebody?

The Happiness Query

Back in May, we had some discussion about happiness.  It started with “Is life supposed to be happy?” and ended with more questions.  Or rather it didn’t end, because, you know, more questions.

If you didn’t read all about it in May, then click on the links at the end of the next page.  It’s worth reading through all the posts and comments!

I decided to take it outside of the blogosphere and make it a Query.  I asked two questions: “Is life supposed to be happy?” and “How do you define happiness?”

You may or may not remember, but I resolved to get back on track with my Queries.  That poor little Hope picture has been hanging out on my sidebar since August 28th.  Four months!  Wow, I didn’t even realize it had been that long.  And I didn’t realize how much I’ve missed doing the Queries until I started hounding asking people to answer a new question.  Did you miss the Queries?  I hope so, because they’re back.  I resolved to make it so.

So, in honor of resolutions made and broken all over the world (ambitious, aren’t I?), here’s the new Query:  Do You Make New Years Resolutions?
