One thing that seems to get me down is feeling like i'm not doing a good job as a wife, as a mother, an employee, or as a supervisor. I have a hard time not constantly thinking that i could do better, regardless of how hard i work or the results i achieve.

How can i gage whether or not I'm successful/proficient in my roles without fishing for compliments or obsessing over whether or not i could have done better?

How much of a role does faith play in happiness?  Not necessarily being a Christian, Jew, Muslim etc.  But faith is something bigger than ourselves.  What role do you see faith playing in happiness?

Is there truly such a place to be? Can one truly "feel" happy or is that more a state of one's own mind?

The # 1 Thing I think that stands between me and real happiness is my habit of procrastination! How do you overcome a lifetime of putting things off? Is there a way to get started but not feel overwhelmed? I know that if I was more organized I could have the time to be the person I want to be! Help!
