December 15th Questions:

1. What is bothering/stressing you out right his minute? Is this problem something you can solve on your own? Or will you simply have to ride the wave and see how it turns out? In the meantime, how are you coping with the stress – how do you unwind?

2. When was the last time you made a compromise with someone? Tell us about it. How did that compromise turn out?

3. What modern day convenience would you be willing to give up forever? Why would you give up that particular convenience and how would you give it up?
