I am like that monkey on the pole. 1 ft up, 2 ft down. Or in my case, 1 step forward, 2 steps back. From restless and frustrated to confused but complacent and back via the scenic route.

Have you ever felt dissatisfied with your life? Chronically dissatisfied with your home, health, career, clothes, relationships, money all at the same time? Like nothing is going your way. Did you maybe tell yourself that you shouldn't resist? Give in and accept the status quo. Get a cat. Get used to being unhappy at your job. Stifle your sense of right and wrong.

Hide. Put on some weight. Put your head down. Give up the dream of owning your own home or of being successful in your career. After all, why not? Isn't that the lot of some 6 billion people in this world? What makes you think you deserve better?

Well, maybe it is that you just don't like giving up. Maybe what you do or do not deserve has nothing to do with it. You want what you want and nothing less will do. Maybe what makes you stand apart from some 6 billion people in this world is that no matter how many times life gets you down, sooner or later you get up... But first, you need to stop wallowing in self-pity.

Wishlist for next birthday (June 2007):

1. Buy my first home
2. Become more car-savvy
3. Find a job that excites me again
4. Lose a few pounds and get a makeover
