TMI Tuesday: January 4, 2022 — TMI Tuesday blog

1. Do you feel that happiness is luck or is it a practiced mindset?

Luck happens. How I react to said “luck” is a practiced mindset. Fer sure. Fer sure.

2. If you could transport to the happiest place in the world where would you be?

Finland:

According to the World Happiness Report, Finland is the happiest place in the world. A study has ranked the happiest countries in the world based on interviews carried out in spring 2020. Scandinavia is still the world’s happiest place, with Finland, Iceland and Denmark in the top 3 positions.May 26, 2021

Who am I to argue. We all know that research shows that research works.

3. In 2022, what will you do to improve your health?

I will not participate in No Nut November ever ever ever again.

4. What is your money psychology?
a. Money worshipper: Those who associate money with security, but in a kind of arbitrary way. The danger is no amount of money is ever enough.

b. Money avoidance: When you tend to think of money as bad, corrupting or just something you do not deserve. This can manifest in many ways, such as, not trying to negotiate a raise at work or avoiding looking at your retirement account.

c. Money vigilance: These people seem really great with their money, but there is a lot of anxiety around actually using it. This type can be great savers but rarely treat themselves.

d. Money status: People with this mind-set see money as a way to feel good about themselves and appear a certain way to others. These folks tend to run up credit card debt, pick up tabs they cannot afford and otherwise mismanage their money — while judging others who do not have the same status symbols.

All of the above.

Currently none of the above.

At certain points in my life I have been ensnared in each of the above mindsets; so now I self identify as money neutral.

Bonus: Do you have any goals for your blog in 2022?

Nope. If I reached a goal I would have to stop and declare “Mission Accomplished”

I much prefer meandering along lost in a stream of turgid subconscious effusion.
