I like to think of myself as happy. Satisfied with my life.
Oh sure, when my youngest had a tantrum because I didn’t do her hair quite like Elsa’s this morning I felt like things were rapidly headed downhill. But they vastly improved when my six-year old challenged me to a ‘kissing fight’ before I dropped him off at school.
With three kids, a busy job and a hectic life, I would say I am satisfied. Happy. Things are good. Aren’t they?
So I was surprised to read that, in fact, if researchers are correct, I am kinda in the middle of a slow and steady decline in my life satisfaction.
In fact if researchers are correct, a life like mine with young kids and being aged in between your 30’s and your 50’s is pretty shit.
