I realized that every day my life is going in different directions.. I am looking toward a new future and a new adventure.. I am happy because I am much healther then I was last spring.. I am happy because I have people that love me.. I am happy because I can do things to my house that I couldn't when Cy was here.. I am happy because I wake up each morning.. I am happy because my business is getting better all the time.. I am happy because my mylot friend make me happy.. I am worried about heating for the winter.. I am sad to be away from the person I thought of as the center of my world.. I am sad because my children have been hurt... I am worried about my sweet 85 year old friend that broke her hip.. I am worried about being able to meet the bills.. Is your life a rollercoaster? What are your happy items and sad,and worried items? xoxoxoxo

I think most people's lives are like roller coasters...I know mine sure is! My daughter broke up with her abusive ex after over 20 years...that was a great thing.... I'm babysitting a LOT to help her out...in a way it's a good thing but I'm getting old...lol... My mom is having a lot of health problems. The holidays are here and I'm missing my Dad an awful lot. I lost quite a few family members this past year and thinking more about them lately. On the Happy side... I'm seeing more of my granddaughter than I have in all her 14 years and I'm loving that. I'm fairly healthy. I have a new part time job and the extra money is great. I've reopened a new friendship from a long time ago and that's going great. The most important thing is that I am not going to let anything bother me through this holiday season and I'm going to make sure that everyone I come into contact with is as happy as they can be!!!

If your business keeps getting better, why are you worried about paying the bills? Anyway that's none of my business. To answer your question: I am happy that my family is alive and well. I am happy that I have the opportunity to do what I love. I am sad because the woman I love doesn't love me. I am worried about my parents, because they're starting to get old. I don't feel like my life is a rollercoaster. I just feel tied down because I have high ambitions but yet to achieve them.

I'm happy that I'm alive. I'm happy that I have dreams to go by. I'm happy that I'm be starting a new job soon, even if its temporary work. I'm happy that I'm starting to make new friends at the school I go to. I'm happy that my true friends and my main family is always there for me. I'm happy that videogames continue to play a part in my life. I'm happy that I have music to go to when all else is wrong in the moment. I'm happy that I have you in my life, R, one of my best friends in the whole world. I'm happy that my cousins are doing great and I look forward to seeing them very soon. I'm happy that I am living under a roof and there's food to keep me going. I'm sad because the dating life hasn't been treating me right. I'm sad because most of my friends are around the world or scattered. I'm sad because its been a lonely life for me in three years. I'm sad because not everyone is here and I can only hear from them through email or phone. I'm sad because I have yet to find the girl of my dreams yet where every other guy I know already has. I'm sad because my father is not around in my life a lot, just through communications. I'm sad because my grandfathers are not around and neither is my grandma from NY, but I know they are watching from above and I believe they are proud of me. I'm worried about not to pay off my bills. I'm worried about not able to get married. I'm worried about not able to do the things I want in this lifetime before I pass away. And that's about it. I hope you enjoy.

I'm happy because my mom will be 91 on the 27th of this month and after she broke her hip almost 5 years ago I never thought I'd still have her today! I'm happy because I have two beautiful and wonderful grandkids who are the lights of my life. I'm happy because my daughter has grown to be such a beautiful, wonderful person and a terrific wife and mother. I'm happy because my son-in-law is the best husband and father I could have ever imagined, always there for Kristie even as she fights Crohn's Disease. I'm happy because, although everyone said it wouldn't last because we were so young, I'll soon be celebrating my 38th wedding anniversary. I'm happy because I was blessed with wonderful inlaws and so was my daughter; we're truly all one big happy family! I'm happy because I'll be spending Thanksgiving with the people I love the most and I don't have to fight traffic or airport security or spend a fortune on gas to do so. I'm happy because despite my various aches and pains and other health concerns I'm still able to wake up in the morning and feel thankful for another day. I'm happy because whenever I'm feeling sad my 2 silly cats do something to snap me right out of my dark mood. I'm happy to have found myLot and all the wonderful friends I've made here who really do mean as much to me as my offline friends. I'm happy because I know there are other things that I'm happy about that I've forgotten to mention here! I'm sad because my mom can hardly see now and she has to walk using a walker. I'm sad because my beautiful daughter has been battling Crohn's Disease for several years now and it's really limited her life. I'm sad that I was forced to leave my job at the Post Office because I became physically unable to work as fast as they wanted me to. I'm sad that due to my loss of income I'm unable to do the things for my family I was could. I'm sad that my nephews are going off to war in the New Year and that so many other men and women are also either there or going soon. I'm sad that everyone can't be blessed with the company of their loved ones during the Holidays. I'm sad that there are people who will be going hungry as we feast on our Thanksgiving dinners. I'm sad to know I have friends who have had sad things happen in their life, like you, Raydene. I'm sad that many of the things we've taken for granted in this world may not always be here for our children and grandchildren and their children. And, I'm sad that there are too many people that have far more reasons to be sad than I do! Happy Thanksgiving! Annie

Not only is my life a rollacoaster, it is a soap opera. I am sad because I lost my job due to being preganant. I am happy because I get to stay home now with my children. I am sad because we are in debt because we couldn't afford our bills with no job. I am happy because I am not stressed or as angry when i do not go to work every daily. I am sad becasue I can not afford to do the things we could before and I had to pull my dauther out of cheerleading and my boys out of thier sports I am happy because we get to spend more time together I am sad because my children most likely will not get anything for Chrismas I am happy because we are all together, healthy, and safe.

i think all of us have a rollercoaster kind of life everyday. today you feel like you're on top of the world and tomorrow, you are unexpectedly one of the saddest persons on earth. i had my rollercoaster ride, too. the ups and downs of life is really surprising. there are times when we feel that we can't hold on anymore but we realize that the harder the swing, the harder we grip onto whatever we can hold on to just to survive. i am happy that i have a man who loves me so much. i have parents who care for me. brothers who love me and friens who are always there to listen and help out. but you know, you can never get everything. something wrong will always go along the way. my parents broke up just a month ago. worst, on my very birthday. i might be the luckiest person when it comes to love but i am sad, too because of what happened to my parents. we can never have it all, huh? anne

Hi raydene! Life is really a roller coaster and I am riding it whether I like it or not. haha.. I am happy because my husband loves me very much. I am happy because my husband makes me laugh all the time. I am happy because my father is still healthy somehow. I am happy because I have great nieces and nephews. I am happy because I have a great relationship with my family. I am sad because until now I have no children. I am sad because my brother is ill. I am sad because I missed my mom who passed away. I am sad because my other brother and his wife got separated. I am sad because my grandmother is getting weak. I am sad because we don't have enough money. I am worried about my sick brother all the time. I am worried that someone might get sick in the family again. I guess, this is life. Take care and have a nice day always. :)

I am happy because I have got my two wonderful kids. I am happy beacuse I have not health probles that are serious. I am happy to be alive. I am sad beacause I miss my mom and dad who have passed away long back. I still miss them. I am sad because I have no one I can really rely on for support-emotional or financial. I am happy because at my lot I have found too many friends who though do not know me but are always there for me.

Life really is a rollercoaster. SOmetimes you're up, sometimes you're down. But it's just normal. Because if not, your life will be boring. As if you're a dish which is spicy. When you eat it, a lot of mixed emotions rushed in to your senses. But it is exciting, isn't it. There is thrill. If your life is a plain railroad, there is not thrill, no excitement. When you get there, you have nothing to share for those experiences unlike if it's full of challenges, it's also full of surprises. This is how i live i want it to be full of excitement, thrill, surprises and most of all meaningful.

Sometimes my life feels like a roller coaster too. Most days I'm happy and other days sad or down. Every day is different which is great. Life is an adventure. So we might as well live life to the fullest.

I praise God for this life that He has given, for loving me so much that He gave his life. I praise God for the everyday that I see the sun that shines everyday and the air that I breathe everyday. I thank God for the people that I care about and the people that cares for me, life would not as complete and as worth living with out them in my life. Life would also be very empty without God by my side, guiding me each ste of the way through His word, THE BIBLE. There are so many things that makes us happy with this life, though at times we have problems and trials but things happen for a reasonand it takes a good character to be able to see beyond the pain and the tears. Our pains makes us a different person and a mature one who is stronger and have learned the lessons.
