I think your thoughts are on target.

I guess it's a hard realization to make. That after all this time, and all this work, and things going relatively well, that this is pretty much "life". :)

I did think of a few things that do make me happier though. Maybe I can try harder to incorporate a few of them.

Feeling smart and competent makes me happy. I could try to challenge my brain just enough that I can feel a sense of mastery.

Connecting to others makes me happy. This is a bit harder, since being around people too much makes me unhappy. But I could try to balance that out a bit more.

I miss my daydreams. I was happier when I had daydreams. But I'm not sure how to get them back.

I'd probably feel happier if I felt more energy. And if I were thinner. But exercising and dieting would make me very very unhappy. Another balancing act.

I'll give it some thought.

No need to entirely give up. :)
