> It's Sunday night at 11:30 here in Kansas, and I'm feeling a little restless. Are there any fives in here who are actually HAPPY and, if so, how have you achieved this elusive thing called happiness? I feel okay most of the time but something is definitely missing from my life. I need to find an outlet for my creative energy sometime soon, but I am stuck in a state of limbo. ....

### Hi Jenny,
I'm not a 5 and I don't understand them well so don't take this as advice. Thought I would relay on a 5 friend's experience who decided that planning activities for herself was the way to get her to action and integrate to 8. She is part of a theatre company, choir, goes out socially when invited and generally leads a fairly full life but she has consciously planned it. Recently though she had an operation and has had to spend 6 weeks at home. What I can't understand is that she does not watch TV, tried reading but left off after 1 book and to my knowledge does nothing else all day. I really don't know how I could ever do that, even if I was sick. What does a 5 do in their mind all day that keeps them happily there?
