I have a "steady supply of free money" now. But this yields a monumental lack of motivation to do anything other than sit on the front porch, drink beer, and watch the tweakers ride by on their bicycles at 70 mph.
I'm too altruistic to let you wallow without motivation. From now on you are required to send your free money to me.

Ok. But there will be a $19.95 shipping and handling fee for each $5.00 I send you. Deal?

is "most" defined at present or one that has been kept in my heart for a long time ? I can't tell you the latter, I now need money most, which isn't polled up there though.

Since I don't see an option for beer (every poll should have an option for beer!), I choose sleep. Sleep is a glorious thing, and I don't get enough of it...

Hi lisab. If you don't mind my asking, I'm curious as to what big changes do you think are brewing. Please feel free to PM me if my question is too personal.
Several months ago I was moved into a new position at work. I didn't want to do it because I had a strong feeling it wouldn't suit me. But it did come with a bit of a pay raise. I wasn't given a choice, in any case.

Well, I was right: it doesn't suit me. So...now what?

Ya, I found "sleep" to be an outlier. It's obvious we need sleep. If there's "sleep", there should also be "water" and "food".

No, the idea is for you to have less money so your motivation will return, and for me to have more. That way it's win-win.

Sure, but there's a $29.95 packaging fee for your $19.95. Envelopes aren't free, you know.

This poll is incomplete. It does not include pizza.

My glasses, but that would be the odd one in the list. Otherwise: thinking.
I'm looking at the list and I don't know which one to pick... The ones I would never pick are faith and hope.

Well, you can always search for a new position (maybe a home-based position, if possible?) that would suit you? That's what I've done in the past and it has turned out well for me. Of course, YMMV.

Voted for understanding and sleep, but in retrospect realize I value freedom more than the rest. My life needs to be my own.

I need everything that's listed.

I think the recurring theme in my life lately though is something that's not listed: time.

Many days I feel like I'm stuck fighting in a scenario where, regardless of what I do, I'm letting someone down because there's too much to do and not enough time to do it in. I like to believe though that most ambitious people face this problem.

Voted Courage, Confidence, Motivation, Hope, Passion and Sleep.

Strenght is unclear to me, is it physical strenght? If it is then I don't think it's crucial.Love is also unclear, I assumed it was meant as love between a man and a woman and not as parent love in childhood, with the first one being a luxury and the second one being crucial.Understanding is another, of course you need understanding of some things, but it was too vague for me to vote for it.Freedom depends on what kind of freedom you are talking about.If you're stuck in prison then yeah, you need freedom.If freedom is say not living in Russia because "it's not a free country as much as the USA", then no.

EDIT: Obviously before voting I didn't read OP, I always do that :facepalm:

In my life I think I could use a higher dose of courage and confidence, and some extra motivation.I do have hope in the future for the moment, my sleep is okay and I have a lot of passion.

Since most- so I selected the MOSTs, like I need courage or confidence now more than freedom while even somedays ago I needed freedom most than anything else.


But why did you not give things like support or friends/family??

The best I could select right now: courage, love, confidence, peace, understanding, motivation and healing

I check all of them. On discussion boards I need to talk to people who do not share the same account most, while off boards in face to face debates I prefer non-aggressive, mature , sincere, gentle and smart people. So I decide to hang around with gay men only.

Don't you guys think if you have wisdom you have all the rest? The wisdom to give me courage, the wisdom to give me strength, the wisdom to know what true love is, and the wisdom to know what I really need in life.

Coming back to this thread a year later, I could do with some healing too, along with strength, wisdom and peace.

@Enigman, yeah ... me too, after 3 years of ongoing dreadful health problems
I just want to be well again. I have long forgotten what it is like to be pain and other health issues free :frown:
