I got nothing going on in my brain in the personal growth niche this week. It is my birthday next week so I figured why not give myself a little break and switch off the ol’ brain-a-rooney and post a good old-fashioned get to know me.
I found this tag on stillbeingmolly.com and thought the questions were fun! In the end, I am going to tag a few fellow bloggers to see if they want to participate. They don’t have to but I think it would be fun. So let’s get into 50 get to know me questions because that seems like a lot.
I can relate anything too personal growth. We will just call this a self-discovery exercise. Which is kinda true… haha

Awww we’re done already… I need to find more questions to answer. These were fun. Answering them went a lot faster than I expected. Nostalgia hit hard on these questions. This was fun. Honestly, next week’s post might be the same thing because I am in a nostalgic mood.
I think answering questions like this does help you on your personal growth journey. It helps you learn a little bit about yourself and stir up some memories you might have forgotten about yourself.
Pick a question from above and answer it in the comments. I would love to hear your answers.
Until Next Time, have a great day! Remember you are a badass!
