Like the subject says what do you do that makes you happy.And what do you need to feel happy.For me what I need out of life is
1)Challenge:When I complete a challenge I feel powerful and confident.The things I do that I feel chalenge me are
a)Bodybuilding:The task of heading to the gym,and performing better than the previous workout is an ongoing challenge for me.
b)College:When I went to college that was a constant challenge as well.At first I was really nervous about failing since various experiences have made me doubt my own abilities,and at my colllege you had to get at least a 70% to pass the class.But after getting my first "A" an 89% to be exact I was empowered and started to feel confident and self assured again.And I continued through that course and my lowest mark was a 72% & my highest was a 95%
c)Driving:I've been driving my friends car as practice before going for my road test.And having him say that my driving skills have really improved & that I should go for the tes makes me feel good.
2)Financial Security:I need to know that I won't be living from paycheck to paycheck.Although I'm somewhat financially secure now however certain things are lacking to make it complete.
3)Fullfillment:I want to like what I'm doing to feel motivated in life.Guaranteed that if I didn't like the course I was taking in college I wouldn't have have passed.When you like what you're doing you focus more on the pros instead of the cons and you feel empowered.My collection of Transformers toys,animes and mangas make me feel happy.One of my worst mistakes was selling off my Transformers collection because I was worried about being made fun of by my high school peers
4)Control:I like being in control of my life and in a position of power.There is a key aspect of my life that is not fully in my control so bodybuilding,collecting,reading are all in my control & focusing on the control keeps me somewhat sane.So I can now try to gain control of what's uncontrolable in my life and not feel so dejected*Although I still have my blue periods*
5)Goals:I have set some future goals that are achieveable & will be achieved(I hope in the near future)my new goals are to
a)Pass my road test & get my drivers license
b)Go at least once to the Arnold Fitness Expo
c)Go at least once to BotCon*It's a Transformers convention*
d)Be able to move out into my own apartment*I'm already part of the way there financially*
So tell us what are the aspects of your life that keep you feeling good about yourself.
*FYI please be serious*
