8. Do you have a unified way of approaching your life, work, relationships, finances, chores, etc.? please explain.

I periodically make lots of lists, mostly to keep my mind in order. Often I make lists of things to do and then never look at the list ever again – I think it helps to put it down on paper because it tricks my mind into thinking things are under control and then it is free to enjoy life.

N/A

Yes I try to plan things n do things at priorities

I'm retired! After working for 55 years, I take it easy.

I don’t know if this is a way or a mindset, but I constantly remind myself that I’m on my own and alone in this world. I take this as an empowering thing—I’m my own source of everything, and it’s up to me to lead the life I want for myself. I hate that the word “alone” typically has such a negative connotation. Being alone is so great, and I’m not afraid to say I love myself and I love hanging out with myself. Isn’t there a Kelly Clarkson lyric that goes something like, “Just because I’m alone don’t mean I’m lonely”? Or is it the other way around? Either way, I fucking love that. Hell yeah, I can be alone and not feel lonely, it’s possible. It’s actually one of my favorite places to be—alone. This is because I used to be an introvert, and as I got older I’d like to think I became an extrovert, but kept my introvert thoughts. I’m still an introvert. I talk to myself all the time when I’m alone. Talking to myself often helps me sort out the shit that’s in my head. Observing people is my all-time favorite thing ever. I’m proud to be both intro- and extroverted because it serves me well in this great game of life with other people. I trust my gut feeling over a lot of other things, and I don’t let negative people stay around me for too long. I want to always stay true to myself no matter what kinds of people are around me, and I want to make other people aware that I’m a source of positive energy and understanding. And for those people who already know me, I want them to feel their best all the time when they’re with me, and if I can make them feel good and motivated to be their best self, then I’ll feel fulfilled and happy.

I am very routine oriented. I work out at the same time every day. My immediate family is mostly who I communicate with everyday. I pay my bills at the same time every month. My breakfast and lunch are pretty much the same every day. So I would say my every day pretty much has the same routine.

Ha. Unified.
No, because I don't think enough about it.
But generally, now, I aim to buy only sustainable/ethical fashion or have a good story about why I haven't.
In the last few years I've been really cognisant of living my values, which is challenging. Especially when you care about the environment and ethics, especially when the market isn't ready to wholly provide/support your values.

Control. Spreadsheets - including one for my clothes. Planning. It's obsessive, but calming. My parents were volatile (which tipped over into physical abuse occasionally). Keeping on top of everything makes me feel safe.

do not get the answar

I listen in my head. I am an auditive person and If the tone is right, it will feel right so it is the right thing to do.

Sort of; I find my mind works in a way that buzzes with lots and lots of possibilities and trains of thought, and then I try to hone in on the key things that draw me in most deeply and consistently. And at a certain point, I have to create structures for myself that force me to make a decision, even if its just arbitrary.

I'm a very calm and collected person. It seems to work.

Other people's opinions do not matter. Trends, fads, peer pressure do not matter. I can only do what's right for me even if it's not what anyone else is doing.

"follow the YES" —my dear friend
whatever resonates.

I make plenty of to-do lists! ...and I try to get them done.

Mmm... Well, I'm a christian, which definitely affects my outlook on life in general. It has definitely affected how I live my life more than anything else has... The way that has touch my clothing/fashion outlook would be the fact of my modesty standards. I think it's essential to look nice/presentable, without drawing an abundance of attention/wearing revealing or pretentious clothing. The other thing that has affect my life is that my mom is slightly hippie -- I "grew up" in santa cruz & my outlook tends to be a little more on the free spirit side.

Keep it simple

Trust yourself.

I try to always put the real me into everything. I can be loud, and Im always colourful, I like new challenges and ideas and I tend to think outside the box. I try to maintain this in all aspects of my life. If I dont, it becomes a blight in the picture frame to me, and I feel I have to change it.

If it's authentic and kind, do it.

Now I do, I trust my instincts, instead of justifying.

NO! I am quite controlling regarding cleanliness, finances and my wardrobe. These things can be controlled and therefore can make me calm. Work, love, relationships, I feel everyday I wake up having no clue how I've managed this far.

Always say yes to opportunities. someone needs your help Saturday and you are free? say yes. Free competition for a trip to Hawaii? say yes. A trip to a school event for a subject you haven't really thought about? go for it. you never know what interesting things you could have missed on because you didn't want to make the effort.

i love surprises and i m positive

No I am random, I like to do stuff on the spur of the moment.

Make a plan. My general approach is it's best to have a plan, even if it's not a great plan. It can be amended or abandoned as necessary, but some sense of how to get from point A to point B is my modus operandi.

My breathe.

consistency and congruency

I try to look at everything I encounter from all possible angles and get all information I can get before I take any decision

I have to feel well with it.. and should´t hurt others
