Quiz: What’s Your Holiday Wish?

whatsyourholidaywish

I’m going to confess something to you. I totally have a secret holiday wish this year. In fact, I have a holiday wish every year… it’s a bit of a thing for me. My holiday wish sometimes comes true, but not always. In some ways, it’s not about getting the wish for me. It’s about the process of wishing it. /I love to spend some time thinking about what my holiday wish should be each year. There’s so many to choose from, but I make sure I only pick one.

Of course, when I was younger, my holiday wishes were very simple and materialistic. I think we all went that route, wishing for a special toy or present from Santa! And unsurprisingly, I never kept those holiday wishes a secret. If anything, the more people who knew my childhood holiday wish, the better. It increased my chances of having my wish come true.

Now that I’m older, my holiday wishes are a lot more complicated and lofty. And it’s an understatement to say that those holiday wishes don’t always come true. You know what though, that’s okay. I love to feel hopeful around the holidays, and there’s nothing better than having a dream in my heart. Of course, these are the kind of holiday wishes that I don’t share with anyone else – which makes them a little more special 🙂

What about you? I like to think that everyone has a holiday wish deep in their hearts. Maybe you’re wishing for world peace. Maybe you’re dreaming of getting amazing presents. Or maybe you’re just hoping to be near your friends and family.

Take my latest quiz: What’s Your Holiday Wish? – It will show you what you’re dreaming of this year! Comment below with your outcome. What do you think of this holiday quiz? Did I get your holiday wish right?

Quiz: Are You a Hawk or a Dove?

areyouahawkordovequiz

When it comes to global conflict, what’s your general philosophy? Whew! That’s a pretty heady question. I can understand if you’re not quite ready to answer it this morning. I’m not sure that I’m quite ready to answer it. I thought it would be a provocative question for all of us though, and sometimes I’m all about answering the hard questions – especially if I’ve had enough coffee.

While international affairs is a bit much for me on any day, it’s always almost unavoidable. There’s too much going on the news to not start evaluating conflicts from a more philosophical perspective, at least that’s what I think. I’m always considering whether I believe the US should be involved in an international dispute… or if we should just butt out. And this affects my personal politics to a large degree.

Are you a lover or a fighter? Do you think war is justified or unnecessary? Yes, it can be hard to answer such sweeping questions, I’m just talking in generalities.  I get that some “doves” can support certain wars while certain “hawks” can oppose specific conflicts. (And for those not acquainted “hawk” and “dove” are words some people use to describe pro-military and anti-war people.)

I know these are deep questions, but they probably should be asked. Even you never will be involved in an international conflict personally, figuring out where you stand helps you figure out which political candidates to support. Take my latest quiz, Are You a Hawk or a Dove? to see where you stand. Your results may surprise you!

Do you make yourself a priority? Take this quiz to see if you come first or last.

These are tough times. The holidays are already stressful enough, but a bad economy makes them much harder. It seems to me that everyone is a little stretched right now. If you feel stressed, don’t beat yourself up about it. Just know that a lot of us are stressed right now, and a lot of us are helping each other through it.

This is the moment that it’s important to put yourself first. I know what you’re thinking, “Sounds good, but impossible to do.” It might not be as difficult as you think. Putting yourself first just means that you take a little more time for self-care, rest, and reflection. It may seem counterintuitive, but when we take good care of ourselves we are better able to take care of others and do what needs to be done in life.

First of all, take my quiz, Do You Put Yourself First or Last? and see how you fare. If you’re putting yourself first already, then pat yourself on the back. You are well prepared to deal with any stress that comes your way. Keep up the good work – you understand the importance of self-care and practice it regularly.

If you’re not putting yourself first, may I suggest that you try a few little things to pamper yourself? Maybe just quick a nap or a quiet moment outside would do the trick. After all, you are important.!You need to be taken care of, even if you are taking care of everyone else. And no matter what, don’t feel bad that you haven’t been putting yourself first right now. Today is a new day, and you can almost certainly find a minute or two for self-care.

Want more ideas for putting yourself first? I know I’m always looking for more ways to take care of myself. Check out these quizzes:

What Do People Love About You? Take This Quiz to See How You’re Lovable.

Why do people find you lovable? Take this revealing quiz to find out!

On a good day, you can probably think of all sorts of things people love about you. Your kindness. Your sense of humor. Your little quirks. Your loyalty. Your passion. None of us may be perfect, but we all bring cool and unique things to our relationships. And when we’re at the top of our game, it’s easy to love ourselves and see why others love us. And let’s be honest… those are some of the best feelings in the world.

On a bad day, you might feel completely unlovable. At our worst, it’s hard to remember what makes us special. I know that I have days like this, and it’s hard for me to remember why people may love me. These days are luckily pretty far and few between, but they still happen.

It’s funny how feeling lovable or unlovable can perpetuate more of the same. When you feel worthy of love, more people love you freely. But when you feel unworthy of love, it’s hard to get the love you crave so dearly. When we feel unworthy of love, we are still lovable – but we may push others away and not get the love we need. I know that we are all deserving of love, even if we don’t always feel that way.

The great thing about love is that people love us for the best reasons. True love is not based on status, looks, favor, or money. When writing my latest quiz, I thought of the reasons I love others. Some of the things that came to me were kindness, openness, wit, and dependability.  And I have a feeling that you probably love others for similar (if not the exact same reasons).

So if you’re feeling less than lovable, think about what I discovered. Are you kind, open, witty, or dependable? If you’re having a bad day, you may not consider yourself to be any of these things. And that’s fine. But do you aspire to be any of them? I bet you do, and that’s where we’re getting to the root of your lovability.

The newest quiz I wrote, What Do People Love About You?, is for good days, bad days, and in between days. Take a few minutes to remember why you’re loved. This quiz will show you how you’re lovable, even if you don’t feel like you should be loved right now. It’s a great quiz for anyone, but it’s especially good for anyone who is feeling flawed.

What Do People Love About You? helps you discover what people cherish about you. You might be surprised to learn what makes you lovable. No matter what, you are lovable – and probably much more lovable than you think. Take this quiz to find out why others love you. Give it a go, and let me know what you think of your result. Can you see why people love you? Comment below with your result.
