Motivation to do all the things I need to get done.

Peace of mind.

And sex, but that’s got a lot to do with my previous answer.

Well, I’m lacking romance, but I’m not exactly seeking it at the moment.

Right now, I’m just in a bit of a quandary because I want to room with this one friend of mine at Stanford but I also don’t want to pretend to be straight anymore and I don’t think he would want to be my roommate if he found out I was gay.

Self-discipline – to get on with my university work, to stop allowing myself to worry and think negative thoughts, to make myself use my time in a more productive way.

If I can become more disciplined with myself, I believe many areas of my life would improve.

Lazy Saturdays full of nothing but wasting time.
A gym that is close to my home AND another one close to my work so I could workout whenever.

I’m currently lacking the will power and desire to go out and do my 2 mile daily run. You’re right, I should do it anyway because it’s the right thing to do. Thanks!

aviona's avatar

A quiet mind.
Things to fill my time with.
As of recently, sex.
A significant other/romance.

I’m hoping all this will change soon.

Missing romance at the moment. Don’t think I will ever find it again, so I have pretty much resigned myself to being alone.

YARNLADY's avatar

@Dansedescygnes maybe you could ask him if it would matter

Financial stability. I desperately wish we had it :(

Jude's avatar

For me, it’s a little of “all of the above” at the moment (money, love/romance (although, that is in the works), sex, ambition, discipline..yada yada yada)..

So, I’ll go with happiness (all of the things listed above ‘workin for me”, would make me a happy girl).

Sleep. Rest. Enough rest, enough sleep.

love, trust, a puppy, someone to move in with, a new car, the job I really want, motivation.

shortysith's avatar

Patience. Peace of Mind. Exercise. Direction. Love.

@chyna Yes, you WILL find romance again. I’m a romantic & I believe that. There’s someone for everyone. Tomorrow may be it. The next person to come around the corner may be it. He’s there, waiting for you, too. :-)

chyna's avatar

@jbfletcherfan Thanks I needed that.

janbb's avatar

A sense of safety – I feel very jittery and unable to control things that are happening around me that affect my life. Major changes are happening and I would like to have a sense of peace and stability.

Friendships (not the quantity but the quality)

cak's avatar

The willpower to go to the doctor tomorrow. It appears I might have some heart damage from all the chemo and other things going on. I’d really rather not hear what they have to say.

MrsNash's avatar

Better physical health… very few of my other complaints are worth mentioning.

jbfletcherfan's avatar

@cak NOoooooooooooo….write me when you get home

SuperMouse's avatar

Money. However, I have been around long enough to know that even if I had the money all would not be perfect so I’ll get through this and be thankful for what I do have, my boys, my man, Gimme and her family, and Fluther.

kenmc's avatar


My girl.

Peace of mind.

wundayatta's avatar

sex, as always, but things are better than they were before

NaturalMineralWater's avatar

My answer is yes.

Pol_is_aware's avatar

A flourishing career (That brings in money).

aviona's avatar

That’s interesting @shrubbery, what you said about the friendships. I just said “friends” in general. I think because the quality was so poor, I stopped putting effort into them and therefore I am now lacking quantity as well. :/

It’s just interesting to think of it in a sequence like that.

knitfroggy's avatar

Money money money…can you ever have enough?

augustlan's avatar

A job / money.

shrubbery's avatar

@aviona, that is interesting. I think I meant the quality of the friend ship specifically, not the friend, as in well I love my friends they’re all beautiful people and I wouldn’t trade them for anything, and there are plenty of them (quantity!) haha but it’s just that I haven’t spent much time with them for a long time because I’ve been so busy with rowing and school and other stuff that though the friendship is still there its quality is lacking, and what I mean by quality is knowing what is going on in each other’s lives and sharing stories and hanging out etc etc. But now that I’m lacking rowing in my life, I should be able to get back some quality in my friendships :P

janbb's avatar

@cak A big hug ( ).

dynamicduo's avatar

Ambition, perhaps. Something’s missing in my life and I have yet to fill the void…

bright_eyes00's avatar

a feeling of belonging. i’m really lonely. i miss being with someone. i miss being wanted by someone. makes life easier to have that shoulder to turn to. only makes you stronger going through the hard things without it.

Alessandra's avatar

A lot of great responses. But other than loss of inspiration, there is a big lack of quality time with my family, and as well as respect from some loved ones

f4a's avatar

a purpose. nothing seems to be something that i really really really want to achieve as of the moment. and the hard part is im a goal seeker. whats yours?

Krag's avatar

A LIFE!!!!!!

VzzBzz's avatar

Independence. I committed myself to a project which grounds me for about the next 5 years, I’m not suited for being hedged in.
