Day 2: Life Assessment #31DayReset

Today we were asked to do a LIFE ASSESSMENT. I have revamped my previous one.

To complete this exercise, you will take an honest assessment of seven specific areas of your life:

  • Lifestyle (satisfaction with where you live/living environment, how you spend your leisure time these days)
What I like: I have a roof over my head. My days are spent with my son, school work, my best friends and Scrabble and I love it right now 🙂 Also, I’ve been able to travel so much in the last two years, I am so grateful and amazed and how big and beautiful our world is. God is so good!
What I don’t like: Living in NYC…I’m running away to Florida as soon as I’m done with school!
  • Work (satisfaction with where you work right now, what you do to earn your living)
What I like: That I was recently rescued from a job that was sucking my soul from my body and still able to have an income. Also, excited about my new internship at the hospital this year 🙂 I also enjoy being a full time mom 🙂
What I don’t like: Sometimes I do get a bit antsy but it fades when I realize I have homework due. School is my job.
  • Education (satisfaction with your educational attainment to date – college, vocational school and other learning goals)
What I like: The fact that I will have THREE degrees by May 2012 is just… seriously, one of my biggest accomplishments in life.
What I don’t like: That it TOOK so long. But I am exactly where God wants me to be. No worries. 🙂
  • Finances (the current state of your budget/money management, salary, net worth, debt-to-income ratio)
What I like: That God has seriously miraculously provided for me every time I needed it. I want for nothing.
What I don’t like: That I had to use my savings for a family emergency but it’s being built back up. When you give in abundance God does not turn a blind eye.
  • Health (the current state of your mental, physical and spiritual health – mind, body, soul)
What I like: I’m whole. Praise Jesus.
What I don’t like: This belly. Die fat! Die! LOL
  • Family (the quality of your relationships with family members, siblings, children)
What I like: My family has never been closer. I thank God for the time I get to spend with them. God wants to heal the families first and I am glad we have each other’s backs.
What I don’t like: That a few of my family members aren’t saved. 😦
  • Relationships (the quality of your relationships with friends and romantic partners)
What I like: I adore my friends. God gave them to me right on time. I am able to be affectionate with them and lavish my love on them and they appreciate my needy self.
What I don’t like: That I don’t have enough time to spend with them but I am learning to MAKE the time.

So, all in all, I am pretty content and satisfied with life. I thank God for every day I wake up because it is indeed a gift. I am happy and content within myself. I have goals and I am on the way to obtaining them. My son is happy, healthy, intelligent and well-mannered. I am happy and content with me. I love myself. I love the woman I have become. I love my love for other people; the desire to serve others more than myself. I love my desire to change what’s wrong in the world…a true social worker’s heart. I still have work to do but I am happy now and excited about the future!

Have you assessed your life lately? It’s always good to do a self-check. Feel free to share in the comments below or keep your own journal!

  1. Congrats on your upcoming three degrees! That is amazing! Also, we all have family members that are not saved, the key is to continuously lift them up in prayer. So nice to meet you.
