21DJC Day 17 – If The World Came To An End Today, How Would You Feel?

This is Day 17 of the 21-Day Journaling Challenge (21DJC) for Nov 2011. View list of tasks: 21DJC Overview.

Hi everyone – Welcome to Day 17 of 21DJC! :)

Yesterday’s question was: “What Makes You Happy?“. (Read the responses.)

Check out some of the things that bring joy to readers at Personal Excellence readers:

“My happiest moments are spending time with my husband and my family, reading, playing the piano, taking pictures and drawing/ painting.” – Kimberly

“My horses, when they’re happily munching away, or they trot up to see me when I come out, or if I’m talking to them and they snort at the right time. Or at work when one of the dogs chases a ball, or a stick, or a leaf, or walks up to me to get petted wiggling so much with excitement that they nearly fall over.” – Laurel

“I am happy when I reach a goal, even when it’s a small one. I am also happy when taking positive action and even before that,when I am making plans and feel pumped about achieving something. And I am so happy and grateful to be alive and have this amazing adventure on the Earth :)))” – Ivona

“What makes me happy? … [It] could be anything. From people to animals, birds, fish, insects, places, memories, art, music, movies, photos, the weather (even if it’s raining), technology, books, magazines, the ocean, the sky, the sun, clouds, aromas, trees, grass, flowers, fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, water, puddles, cars, trains, buses, bicycles, planes, and even something as obscure as dog poo on the street, which I will just look at and laugh. The dogs are just doing what needs to be done, so how can that not make anyone happy? :)” – Glenn

“When I feel like I’ve made a difference in someone’s life, then I feel happy.” – Pat Fuller

“Achieving something to me that is not easy.The most vivid and emotional moment for me is when I got my car license, it may be trivial to many people but its the most satisfying experience for me.” – iImprove2

“What I love most about life is that there are so many things to see, explore and learn. We only have so much time and space to expose ourselves to them. Whatever I do, I would like to think that i am learning something from it.” – Viole

“Being independent, supporting myself. Clearing clutter and living simply. Saving money. Random acts of kindness (receiving and performing them). Meditation. Feeling gratitude for all that i have, and dreaming of all the good things to come.”

“What makes me happy? Simple things like: Being with my children, seeing them smile. Feeling loved, feeling that people care about me. Playing with my dogs. Receiving an unexpected gift. Giving someone a gift. Christmas. Reading a book• When I achieve something or reach a goal, even if it a small thing. Walking barefoot on the beach.” – Ish

“Many things make me happy…. Spending time with my family. Finishing a project. Creating extra ordinary designs. Listening Meaningful Hindi Songs. Reading Motivational Stuff. Achieving success. Logging in to Personal Excellence / Forum :) ” – Kamal

Thank you, Kamal (as well as to the rest of you to mentioned that in your responses). :D I’m really happy to know that being at Personal Excellence makes you happy. :D Guess happiness can be a self-enforcing cycle, aye? ;)

What makes me happy? Almost everything, really. Some things that make me happy include:

  • People smiling.
  • Connecting with people.
  • Seeing people in love.
  • Living my purpose. Helping people grow.
  • Pursuing and achieving my goals.
  • Gratitude.
  • Growing.
  • Uncovering my blind spots.
  • Kindness.
  • Running Personal Excellence.
  • Working on upcoming projects for Personal Excellence.
  • Seeing you happy.
  • Knowing I have positively affected someone’s life as a result of what I do.
  • Seeing my parents go about their day-to-day activities.
  • Living life.

With that said, let’s now move to today’s question!

21DJC Day 17

Today’s question is:

If The World Came To An End Today, How Would You Feel?

If The World Came To An End Today, How Would You Feel?

Would you be happy? Would you be sad? Would you be nonchalant? Would you wish for more time with your loved ones? Would you wish for more time to fulfill your goals? Would you wish for another chance at life?

Put on your reflection cap and let your thoughts flow. Below is an empty form which you can use to write your answers to the question. Treat it as your private 21DJC journaling “room”, if you will. You will be seeing this form every day, for the 21 days of the challenge. There’s a button for you to keep track of your word count too, if you’re interested.

(Note you will not see the form below if you’re viewing this in your email client. Visit the actual post online to see the form.)

    I am not tired of life, I am not ready to leave this place, per se. I look forward to see my life unfold with me for years and years to come. I’m excited to grow and see others around me grow I am, however, very happy and I feel content with my life in a much bigger way than I ever felt before. I would die happy if I died today, especially if I could be with my husband.

    If the world came to an end today I would feel relieved, probably because I died young and I know I did my best to enjoy God’s wonders and spending time with the people that I love, and at the same time relieved that I did not become old enough to experience lifes true hard ships.

    I’d be scared. I’d try to calm down and get peace with it. I’d like to hold on to my partner. I’d like to call all my relatives, just to hear their voices, to say that I’m calm and ok, and to hear that they are ok too.
