    I’m glad the questions struck a chord with you. I still go over them during periods when I experience a creative block, and so far, they’ve always helped!

        I think it’s always good to check in with oneself from time to time. Especially when life changes occur! Did you find this list somewhere or did you make it up on your own? Either way, I love it! I need to take an hour or so and answer every one of these questions!
