others and some are shorter than you want them to be. I learned that you need
to love those around you and be willing to let go of people when the time
comes. It's also okay when you grow apart from your friends as you gain new
Stephanie | It's not your responsibility or obligation to make others happy. People should love you for you not what you do for them. Let them go when needed.
Prompt: Tell me about a time when you won something. Hold on to the feeling for a few moments as if its happening again to you right now. You are a winner! How does that make you feel?
Annetta | Being a winner me feel like I'm on top of the world. It's
actually one of my favorite feelings! That feeling comes not very often. Not
one of those people just wins all the time. I have to work really hard to be a
Stephanie | I don't win things. At a company party there was a raffle and as they were pulling the names out, I commented to my hubby that I never win anything. Then my name was called!

Prompt: List the pros and cons of becoming immortal.
Annetta | Being immortal doesn't sound like a good thing everyone
would take life for granted and there would be so much sin & chaos in the
world. There is a reason why we don't live as long as some of the people live
in the old testament. People used to live for hundreds of years but then the

Annetta | If I were to move to another country I would actually miss many
things. I would miss my friends who I love and have been with for years. I'd miss all
the beautiful parts that are in Seattle! Also all the beautiful houses and yards I enjoy walking through.
Stephanie | Things I would miss from the Seattle area is easy access to the beach, the mountain views, good seafood, and being able to go to the city, country, forest, and ocean all within an hour of my home.
Annetta | I have been feeling of being lost but I'm working too
hard. Often times I find myself under a big deadline and I will spend weeks
working on the commencement. In those days I do not rest, nap or really do
anything other than work and be the best mom I can be. I get lost after the pressure of the deadline is lifted
and I am standing there with myself tired, overwhelmed and missed on the
beautiful details of life.I feel like I have to find my way back by picking up all
Stephanie | I feel lost in my art most of the time. I know things need changing, but I am unsure of how to go about it, and I don't have a clear vision of where I want to go which makes it difficult to navigate and find a direction. I feel lost and in my head a lot.
