> > 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?

*****That's interesting, about your friend not "doing" anything all day. I get restless just sitting around staring at walls. I am always either reading, on the computer, watching Tv, or studying. Maybe she was doing that because she was in an altered mind state because of the operation. Sometimes that can cause one to think about things more in depth, I have heard. There are times, though, when I am happy thinking for hours, but it's usually while I'm doing something else. Usually I am fantasizing about a current object of affection or just analyzing things. Maybe I should think about integrating to an eight...
