Lol. LikeLiked by 5 people Reply I’m satisfied. Of course, there are times when I think of things that may or may not make my life more satisfying – but too much of that type of thinking tends to take focus away from the things that make my life great. You know, the often overlooked things or the things we often take for granted. Great question. Thought-provoking, for sure. Much Love. -M. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you for taking your time to answer! If we think about it, the things we overlook are actually the things that make our life satisfying because those are signs of what we have accomplished.

I’m glad it is! 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I strongly believe that satisfaction runs linear with time. It’s never stationary. With that being said, as long as I am free mentally and physically independent, I am satisfied. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Awesome approach! Was this always your opinion? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Absolutely not 🤦🏾♂️😂😂😂(sadly) The older I get, the more I read and learn, the more I “see” things differently. Most of us grow up seeking satisfaction through visual & tactile stimulants. So we often fail to learn how to “feel” satisfied. We associate satisfaction with being seen in the eyes of others as being content and achieved. I think that satisfaction is a state of mind, more of a calm and worry free state of mind.

Slowly and carefully is my motto. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Nice! Do you have any regrets regarding the way your life went so far? LikeLike Reply Of course I have some concerns, as I think we are all driven by fear of missing out (FOMO) and I am no different, as I may never achieve my goals but I am enjoying the journey and not letting peer pressure get to me. So hard to use the word regret yet. For example if I was to become a parent now I don’t think I would regret I didn’t do it earlier, because I have learned so much up to now. So, before I die I could more accurately let you know. LikeLiked by 1 person Yes LikeLiked by 1 person Reply The best!

LikeLiked by 2 people Reply What brought you to this conclusion? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I gradually realised that happiness was in the moments we have and the memories we make, not in possessions or ‘things’. It took some internal reflection and realising that a bigger house or new car would not change my life, it wouldn’t take away the things that troubled me nor would it provide the things that made me happy. I was a terrible shopaholic in my 20’s. It stopped when we had children. That’s when I started to realise that despite not having the money to buy petty luxuries, I was no less happy than before.

Misanthropic in general, I have a few close friends that I love and they bring out the good in me and give me joy. Probably about 10 people I’ve ever met I can say I truly love/like.
