32 Have you ever been in a situation where you found out who your real friends are?

Yes, and it was incredibly painful

Yes, I could probably write a book about it haha

44 Have you ever misjudged someone?

Your Beliefs and Opinions

45 Do you believe in God?

Yes I do, but I would never shove it someone else’s face who believed otherwise

46 Do you believe in yourself?

I am learning to, slowly

47 Do you believe in Santa Claus?

Yes, for now, but I’ll be damned if he gets the credit for pulling off Christmas single handedly

51 Do you believe in the power of positive thinking?

Yes I do because the mindset is a powerful thing, and one that can be focused on the positive in everything

I didn’t until I met my now husband. There was a glimmer in his eye when I met him and I knew. He knew I was the girl for him from the moment we met, although we both played it cautiously cool for a few months

53 Can money make you happy?

No it can’t make you happy, less stressed maybe but not happy

54 Would you describe yourself as a feminist?

Yes, to degree. When it starts to trample on other people, especially other women, who have differing view points on what they feel is right for them then I have to question how ‘equal’ it has all become.

55 Are you pro-life or pro-choice?

This is such a hard one for me. Having lost babies myself, my heart is pro-life. However my head knows the ordeal of an unplanned pregnancy. I just wish there was more support for women who decide to terminate, because many are unprepared for the grief they experience afterwards.
