Right now I have been employed for Two weeks, In school for three, all test scores are above 88. Not bad for a mother of teenager and 21 year old. My dogs are okay. My man is better. So I would have to rate my life right now an 8. I cant believe I am rating my life above a 5. There is hope! lol What about you? Please tell me how you would rate your life at this exact moment in time? Dont dwell on it. Just rate it without thinking. dl

Do you know this is very difficult for me, I just live my life as it comes along and don't compare it to the past or try to predict the future. Each day just brings what it does. But I am glad you are feeling better about your own life.

Take one day at a time, in other words. That's a good way to look at it. Kathy.

This was just something fun to look at ourselves at that point and time. Living one day at a time is a great way to live. Im glad you shared your point of view with us. please understand that my life has been horrible for a long time. Finally things are taking a turn for the good. I only hope it continues. I too live one day at a time. My reasoning is that projecting into the future is a waste of time due to the fact that nothing is written in stone. I hope all is well in your life and that of your loved ones. Please dont make more out of my discussion that what it is. A random fact. I wish you all the best in your daily endeavors. dl

Is it you mom-in-law? I have the same problem. I am so happy that your life is going so great. It makes me happy knowing that things are going well for everyone. I would also have a greater rating if my husband would get me the Ed Hardy bag I have been drooling over, for my birthday. lol. Seriously I must say that things are going much better than they were a few months ago. That is for sure!. Although the bag would really help.lol dl

Your business may be down but you arent. If you are still here to fight another day that is at least a 5. The fact that you have a business in this economic disaster, is worth another point or two. I think you deserve a 7. THats only what I think. Dont sell yourself short. You answered my discussion so that makes you a great person. lol Have a great day! I also have a small jewelry business that has taken a hit due to this economy. DOnt think I was trying to make light of your ratings. I just wanted to make you see what I see. Happy myLotting dl

I think that is wonderful. My life right now is pretty good also. My husband and I work alot but we are paying the bills and paying things off also. We are working our way to rest and relaxation in our coming years so it is not so bad here either.

Im glad to hear all is well. It been a terrible couple of years as far as the economy is concerned. The fact that we have jobs is a big plus. I think as far as you and your husband are concerned you guys are doing excellent. I give you an 8. dl

Hi and smile I know im starting to feel like i am lucky that i am still alive and working well. I have a sweet hubby who always like to listen to me. i have good and understanding parents as well. Depression times is over, i went back loving life. I enjoy exercise, i enjoy smiling and all. I love how i look now, i stay positive as much as possible. I will rate myself 8. I know its not below 5. But i know we still have great desires in life and we want them come true. Still, we have to love life and make it wonderful. Happy mylotting and smile always!

COngratulations Lucky! I feel that if we can be happy in this economic crisis we should at least give ourselves a 5. Your determination to stay positive is admirable. I have been trying to do the same. I think an 8 is perfect rating. I dont think I will ever get a 10 but who knows. I think the ability to have an honest rating of 10 would mean that I am stable in every aspect of my life, Children, FINANCIALLY, Employment wise. Then again, who really knows what may come? I wish you the best my friend! You are truly a role model for many. dl

Hi dloveli! I guess you would say my life is about an 8. I wish my financial situation was better, but then, I guess everybody does. Here lately, I have had problems with my stomach. It goes and comes all the time. Is there a virus going around that you know of? Otherwise, I'm doing fine. Kathy.

There is a virus going around Kathy. SO beware. I have also seen alot of my friends and coworkers having trouble with there stomachs. I am wondering with all the new techniques for preparing food if its not creating some of these problems. Regardless 8 is a great rating. We can only hope to keep it this way. Good Luck Kathy. I hope you feel better. Get well soon. dl

I went to the doctor today and she (I go to a woman doctor) said there is a virus going around. She said that might be what's causing my stomach problems. She also said that I had a urinary tract infection. My stomach problems might be caused by this, too. She prescribed some medicine for me to take. So far, I'm feeling some better. I'm aware it takes a few days to get over a uri, though. Kathy.

Hey, Well my life has been pretty average all my life so far. My life has just been average for all the years I have lived, never good times and never bad times. Everyday is exactly the same for me. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

I would rate myself at 2. My life is sucking lots now. I am in my worst moods and my self-esteem is at my lowest in years. But its a stage I've been through, and will rise from, to conquer. Life is lousy

If you are rating it on a 1 to 10 scale then my life is most definitely a 10!

It's a bit hard to rate it with jout thinking mate....lol. I need to weigh up the positives and the negatives...the things I have control over and those I don't have control over. And even then it's hard to come up with a number so I have to go a 5. There are lots of things I would change if I could but I am happy and contented with what I do have.

My life is pretty good. We don't have any money, hardly any food in the house, and we're living on a loaf of bread, a dozen eggs, and some noodles for the next week until one of us gets paid. LOL But my life is GREAT because my husband and I are happy. I'd rather have a week like this now and then, than have all the riches in the world, and be miserable.
