Today’s assignment is to take an honest assessment of seven specific areas of my life:
Lifestyle, Work, Education, Finances, Health, Family, Relationships
The idea is to identify what I like and dislike about each area. Here goes:
Like: I love where I live and I always feel at peace in my environment.
Dislike: My social circle is essentially non-existent. I spend a great deal of my leisure time alone, which isn’t always a bad thing but sometimes I’d like to have an “ace” to hang out with.
Like: Flexible schedule, benefits, compensation
Dislike: Office politics, it’s not my passion, lack of autonomy, boring
Like: I’m comfortable with the education that I’ve attained, both formal and informal. My lack of a degree hasn’t held me back professionally.
Dislike: Part of me still feels like I should have a degree but I don’t want to pursue it if it’s not going to advance me professionally.
Like: I’m financially stable, bills are paid and I’m free to spend as I please
Dislike: My “cushion” isn’t large enough. Still working on paying myself first
Like: I’m healthy, fit and strong. I very rarely get sick
Dislike: I can’t seem to conquer my anemia
Like: I have really good relationships with my children. I appreciate the fact that we can talk and they feel comfortable coming to me when they have an issue – in their own time.
Dislike: The fact that my siblings live so far away and we almost never see each other
Like: The few friendships that I do have are really good ones
Dislike: No romantic relationship currently.
