I think these lists are very important because you can identify things that bring you joy and then go about incorporating more of those things into your life.
The same thing goes for things you don't like. If you have a clear concept of what you don't like and what's not acceptable you can work to minimize the occurrences in your life or change your attitude about them if they can't be removed, or learn to adapt.
Kind of like the bad weather we've been having. I don't like it but I can't change it. So my options are:
- move to a more temperate climate
- rejoice that the moisture will help the farmers
- accept that this kind of weather is normal for these parts and deal with it
- grumble and complain and be miserable
