For me it's minimalism and YouTube.

    I live in the moment. Appreciate the small things. And remind myself how fragile life is.

    Same....plus I'm continuing my education.

    Honestly I feel guilty sometimes that I don't live a purposeful and meaningful life, like I'm doing something wrong.

    Joyful...comes and goes, I try.

    This is what my Facebook profile says:

    Let's just say that I'm a VERY vocal person who speaks her mind. I am very upfront with my thoughts and feelings about Equal Rights, Religion and Politics. If I didn't disagree with Politics so much, I would probably be a great Politician ;) I am a true Believer & try to live every single day with Faith & Trust. I am very compassionate about doing whatever I am capable of for all of my Brothers & Sisters; especially those who are looked down on, ridiculed and judged. I Believe in Equality for ALL Human Beings and feel this continuous drive to STAND for those rights. I LOVE my Family with every part of my being and LOVE this Precious Life that God has Gifted to me. I Believe that we were all born with Purpose and that we should not waste our lives just living day by day with no goals or accomplishments but rather, find that Purpose and make it count! If you happen to disagree with my thoughts and my beliefs, I will respect your feelings & not be offended if you delete me, and please understand that if you happen to display disrespect, unpleasantness or hate... I will delete you! Those who understand me and accept me for who I am...Thank You! :heart:

    That about sums me up! ;)

    Practicing gratitude for all the good things in my life helps me to be joyful.
    Being physically active and working towards greater health and fitness makes me happy as well.
    Interacting in meaningful and supportive ways with my favorite people is also deeply satisfying.

    I have not determined a purpose yet. It's not looking like I ever will, and that's a little demoralizing sometimes. I'd like to be more productive, compassionate and helpful - a force for good in the world. But how to do that? I'm just not very good at figuring that out. I get stuck too easily and doubt myself, so I have trouble moving forward in that area.

    I don't do anything for meaning or purpose. I just do what I want to do.

    I avoid people who irritate me. It's better for everyone.
