40 Things That I’m Happy (Or Dislike) About My Life Right Now
There’s plenty of things to be grateful for, here are some of mine right now.
There are many things in the world to be grateful for, but there are things that I’d like to change as well. My desire to change my current situation stems from a dislike of how things are proceeding. There’s obviously more to it than that, but I hope that this post will add a bit more perspective to you towards who I am and where I want to be going.
- I’m happy about spending time with my cousin. He’s my best friend and honestly, he’s the reason I get out of the house from time to time.
- I’m happy about my accountability partner. Because of this system, I’ve been pushing myself to grow and have achieved significant success in my books.
- I dislike how I started my business. It’s a bit of a sore spot for me and I bring up from time to time to remind myself of who I was.
- I’m happy how I started my business. Looking back it’s taught me many things and evolved me into who I am today.
- I dislike that I’m pudgy. In the past, it was a source of discouragement. It was what encouraged me to never workout or bother to change. It was also the reason I considered myself unattractive.
- I’m happy I’m exercising. The winter is kind of stalling my progress, but I’m still putting an effort into changing. I’m actually excited for the spring to come.
- I’m happy I found a great gym. In November I participated in a challenge where I had to drop 20 pounds in 6 weeks. I achieved it actually but elected to not continue working out at the gym. Part of the reason is #8.
- I dislike that I don’t have much money. It’s really been the bane of my existence for years now. It’s also a constant reminder in my life. I’m working to change it but it is damn annoying.
- I’m happy with the growth in my life. At the same time, I’m happy with the pace that I’ve been growing. In January I’ve earned almost $800 (CAD) which is the highest amount I’ve seen in my writing thus far.
- I’m happy about my goals. They are the things that have brought me to this point.
- I dislike that I have a few ‘real life’ connections. My cousin is great, but outside of him and a few of his friends, I don’t have other connections.
- I’m happy about the connections I have online. There’s a good number of people I know online and while I don’t chat much with them, I’m still happy and grateful I know them.
- I’m happy about my parents. They’ve put up with me for 4 years now and have been a massive help.
- I dislike I can’t return the favour to them. At the same time, I feel obligated to do something in return to help them out. The best thing I can do these days is shovel snow and help around the house. But I wish I could do more. Goes back to #8.
- I’m happy with the music I listen to. I love my playlists on SoundCloud. They help me to focus when I need it.
- I’m happy I can see movies from time to time. I’ve got the finances to support seeing plenty of movies and there are a bunch I want to see.
- I’m happy that I’ll get to travel eventually. Travelling is something that I’d like to do in the very near future. It’ll be good once I get back into vlogging.
- I dislike that I can’t vlog daily. I feel that the content would be rather stale since so much of my time right now is devoted to writing. Right now people have to settle with what I’ve been putting up.
- I dislike that I haven’t been consistent with my video creation. I feel that I’m betraying people when I’m not consistent, especially when I pump myself up and strive to be consistent.
- I dislike that I can’t travel right now. I don’t know where I’d go, but the fact that I haven’t had a vacation for almost a decade certainly is maddening to me.
- I’m happy that I have a reason to smile. I’m glad I’m at a point where I genuinely smile.
- I’m happy about my work. Writing is something that I feel is the right fit for me.
- I dislike when people fit me into who I was. Maybe not as the lazy, procrastinating hypocritical individual I was when I started my business, but more as the potential accountant I could’ve been. I did spend seven years studying accounting after all. But I’m not that person.
- I’m happy about being genuine about who I am. I’m glad I’ve found a way to express myself and be who I truly am.
- I’m happy with my singing. I have a decent voice for it too.
- I dislike I haven’t been practicing much. It’s gotten a touch rusty over the years since I haven’t been keeping up with it as much as I’d like.
- I dislike that I want to do so much in my life. It can be a constant source of distraction.
- I’m happy that I have many aspirations. At the same time, having all these desires means that I’ll not run out of things I want to achieve in my life.
- I’m happy I’m able to spin things in positive lights. I used to be such a negative individual and to be able to spin things in this manner has really expanded my mind.
- I’m happy to be a rebel. I like to prove people wrong and go off and do my own thing.
- I’m happy that I’m not smug. But when I prove people wrong I’m not a dick about it. I respect people after all.
- I’m happy that I’m an extrovert. I like to be around people. Probably why I feel a touch lonely these days.
- I dislike that I’m kind of lonely. I’d like to have more reasons to get out of the house and meeting people certainly is a good reason.
- I’m happy about my writing skills. They’ve grown a lot over the years and these days it’s pushed me to be more creative.
- I’m happy with my frog collection. I’ve got an assortment of stuffed frog and figurines and they are adorable and cool. You can’t judge me.
- I’m happy that I’m journalling regularly. I’ve been keeping up with journalling on the regular and it’s helped me a lot in my focusing and hitting my goals.
- I dislike that my hair is getting longer. I know it’s a natural occurrence that I can’t stop, but I haven’t learned to trim my hair properly on my own yet. Also, my hair is pretty unique in that it’s really thick and actually curls when it gets to longer lengths. This makes cutting trickier. I’d get more cuts on the regular, but again that costs money which isn’t quite in abundance right now.
- I’m happy with my laptop stand. I got one for Christmas and it’s helped my posture significantly. It was something that was much needed considering my desk is so small.
- I’m happy I get to play video games. I do a lot of gaming in my downtime. It’s helped me to relax, think, and is probably a good source of my creativity.
- I’m happy I’ve got cooking skills. I haven’t used my culinary skills that much, but I’m glad I got this skill now. It’s another outlet for me to be creative and I make some pretty good food.
So there is my list of 40 things. It took a bit longer than I thought but I enjoyed this little challenge. It got me to think more about the things in my life and also to help you all understand me a little bit more.
For those who need a writing prompt, I nominate Michael Thompson, Shannon Ashley, Frank McKinley, Nicole Akers, Tom Kuegler to put together a list of 40 things. If you’ve done them already feel free to tag me in the comment of the post.
