I am sitting here thinking about my life. I think bills and other stress aside I am doing very well. I have a roof over my head to call my own. I have three healthy kids here at home. I have a job to go to everyday. I have food in my freezer to cook for my family. I may not have all the money I need to pay the bills....But,I think life is treating darn good would you agree?......Have a great day!

Yes, money is not everything, though money surely ease many things in our life. Given the choice to have a good family and enough foods on the table is better than having much money without a friend to confide in.

Life without trouble is boring! From our trouble we can learn how to control our self, so we can be a better person.

same here.. i have a job that'll suffice my needs (food, rent, clothes, etc.) just fine. i don't have a family on my own yet so i guess that adds up making it all fine. hehehe.. i only have myself to take care of. but of course sometimes i share my money to my parents and others..

Hi, Linda4always. I could not agree anymore! I don't have everything that I want right now. But, I do have my precious life and God! When I have all of this, life is worth living and it is very special. I don't have the money that I want right now either, but I know that God is going to bless me and provide for me. I have food on the table to feed my family and that is more than enough. Plus clothes and a place to live. For this, I am most grateful.

Well I could make a big list of things on why I should be grateful and I am to have things and lucky to have things that a lot of people might not be able to afford but, since I have depression I can not actually feel happy. Which sucks big time. Life just does not seem or feel great for me personally right now but I honestly hope one day I could feel like you do now. $-MrDollars-$

You're a happy woman! I'm single, I must rent a small room to live and work. But I always feel happy. And I always believe in the future. I think that we was born is a big treatment of The Life. Enjoys our life everyday!

Life is not treating me so nice, we do not have a lot of food and can't get food stamps. Hubby and I have health problems and cannot even get our kids to help us get in much needed fire wood. Hubby has heart problems. We lost a grandson age four a year ago tomorrow and that is a deep sorrow in our heart. We MUST NEED TO SELL where we are for physical, emotional and financial reasons but it is sitting and not moving and we cannot afford to lower the price due to owed mortgage and another loan we have to pay and yet have enough left to get into a healthier home in lower elevation. I do not have any health insurance and no money to afford it. Teeth hurt and no dental care. Life could be a lot better for us. We pray and pray and pray. I am better off than my brother who lost his job, his phone and his home and lives in his truck right now. I have a home that is too big, too empty and my daughter has a 1 bedroom travel trailer right now with 5 kids. She can't move here for several reasons most legal problems. My son has a B of a girl friend who uses him and his SSD money and he didn't even come around for Mothers day, Fathers day, Indpendance Day, My birthday or the big family reunion. Why because she didn't want to come. She never does to anything so he kisses her tukis and his kids cannot stand her, she does not want to Marry him and she also does not believe in God and is very controlling. Everyone has told him she is abusive and using him. He is blind to it so much he has left church and when he has time with his kids he ignores them and spends with her and her kids. So that is how my life is. Stressful, sad, frusterated and lonely

life is full of surprises and expectations but somehow life is full of trials and sacrifices..Financial issues is one common problem in life but we need to struggle for it or think things we can have income to help or financial stability you can cover it up...good luck

I had all that once and now I have the burden of having fallen into the economic downfall statistics, My company for which I worked for a very long time is no longer in existence and well there went my life's work. Not even getting unemployment and considered well over qualified for a great many jobs I apply to daily, leaves me thinking that life is not treating me very fair right now. However I am a very grateful person, as I have two wonderful children and a loving boyfriend and I breathe healthy everyday. So if I could just get a little money suppose I could then consider my life to be at a peak.

I would agree everyone has different views on what happiness is and to me its where you come from to be able to enjoy life.. i always ask people if their truly happy. Some say without a pause yes. Some think for a bit and cant answer the question. I can say i love my life from where i and my family came from being homeless for quite a while. To having loving friends and family a roof a good income from all members in my family and for me to be in a band and travel quite often i can say i am TRULY happy :D

yeah, life is treating you perfectly fine. all we need in life is not just money. sometimes our family and friends are all we need in life to make it complete. if you only have money and not family then you will not feel good. money doesn't always gives you happiness or we can say it gives you happiness for a short period of time but family and friends always gives you happiness. money comes n goes but family stays with you. so i think life is treating you perfectly fine and you should be happy with what you have n treasure it.
