Tough Questions, Simple Answer

Someone asked me the following questions yesterday:
  • What's the one thing in your life you could never give up?
  • What's the one thing in your life that makes you happiest?
  • What's the one thing in your life you love more than anything else?
I knew my answer immediately (it was fairly simple), but I felt mildly embarrassed about saying it outloud: my pets.

My pets?! Yes, 100%, my pets. Two cats and one dog. The absolute best things that have ever happened to me. The three things that have taught me so much about myself and who I want to be, without asking for a heck of a whole lot in return (okay, that was a tiny lie - the dog is high maintenance).

I wondered why I felt so funny admitting my answer to these questions. I felt like qualifying the statement immediately: "Am I crazy? Is that crazy to say? Do you think I'm nuts?"

Yeah, probably a little. :)
