If 100 people your age were chosen at random, how many do you think you’d find leading a more satisfying life than yours?
That's quite a difficult question, given my recent state of mind. Usually, at camp, I say something along the lines of 25 people lead a more satisfying life than me. I always figured I had it pretty well, although there was always someone better off than me. That was ok with me though, as I always had something to work toward.
Today though, I feel rather different. I feel that so many things are wrong with my life and the amount of stuff to fix is rather overwhelming. Today, I would say 60 people have a more satisfying life than me.
Now, I need to fix that. I need to get over wallowing in self pity and work on it. First, finances. I need to deal with stuff that I haven't wanted to deal with. That will be a great start.
Second, work. I need to decide if I really want to do this, and if so, give it my all. No more of this half ass bullshit.
Life outside of work - I need to get myself involved in something that's extracurricular or what not. I should find a cause that I want to volunteer with or something. I'll find it. That will be good to keep me busy, perhaps meet new people and generally contribute to society.
