I would say 'yes'. I am a career-minded person, and I give my career interests the priority. I moved to this place where I am living now because of the job. This is just the type of job I have been dreaming about for some time, and finally found it. And, every thing is going well !

I am happy with most things in my life at the moment, apart from my health, which i would like to be a lot better.There are lots of things in my life that i am happy with as well as how good we live.I think that there are things that we would all like to be better in life, but sometimes things do not get any better.

jugsjugs, whatever your health problem might be, I wish you all the best and I pray you'll get out of it soon. Love to know that you're happy with most things in life at the moment. Keep the positive mind going. That's what important. Take care. :)

Yes, I am. Recently, I made the huge decision of getting out of an unhealthy relationship. It was a step that I was getting up the courage to take for awhile, and I finally obtained the bravery to follow through. I feel so rejuvenated. I feel like I made a huge step in life in the direction of my own success and happiness. I am exactly where I want to be right now. I do wish school would go by a bit quicker though.

I think that I have a very good life in many ways. I am married and my husband and I are very happy together. I also have a nice family and many nice friends. It has always one of my dreams to live in a home with many pets, because I love animals, and today I have many pets. This year my husband and I bought our own house on an island and we both like the place a lot. It is easy for me to find things that I am grateful for and things that I apreciate about the life that I have today. I wish I had more money to spend on traveling and I wish that I had a different job, I am working on those things. When we get rid of out debt, it will be easier for us to travel and afford the other things that we would like to buy like things for the house. There are things that I would like to change ot improve, but I think that I already have a good life with many blessings.

Now, I'm shaping it to be the way I wanted it to be. I have just started making in happen but still I have a good long way to accomplish my life dreams. I feel there is something that I haven't touched so far, but soon I will be on to finish line.

Waflay, it is refreshing to hear you are so positive about your life! In everything, being positive gives you already more than half way through to the finish line. I wish you all the best for whatever you are hoping and dreaming of. Share with me more as in what is it that is your life dreams if you don't mind, that is. ;) Good luck.

Good question, and actually speaking, NO. i would be happier if i lived life according to my ideals and not according to somebody else's opinions. Actually relationships should become more lenient and partners or spouses and children should be given more mature freedom. I do not as a rule thrust my opinion on others life and want that in my life also. what do you think?
@takie23 (142)

Sreekutty, I strongly agree with you. I see living life according to other people's opinion is such a waste of time, and in actual sense, such a coward approach to life itself. Living so does means, you don't have a say over your life and would always say 'yes' to anything others throw your way. Thanks for your opening up. Take care.

I'd have to say yes and no. When I was growing up I'd always known I wanted to be a mom and have a family. I knew things wouldn't be easy, but I didn't think it would be this hard. I guess that is where the no part comes in. My marriage isn't what I thought it would be. When my husband and I got together we had a great connection. We talked all the time about everything and he seemed interested in anything I had to say. We had fun together teasing and joking around too. Now he has become such an old grump. We are distant and unhappy. Money is so tight some days we're really scrapping it together and our bills are behind. We are so stressed and unhappy I think divorce is in our future and that is definitely something I didn't see.

Ravinskye, sorry to hear that. At times, marriage can be like that for one reason or the other, but when it is so continuously, it is called for both party to sit down and have a real talk. There're loads of reasons why married couple are distant and unhappy. It might be stress of tight budget and a lack of money, it might be personal issues, and so on. I really do hope things work out well for you two. If you feel like talking more about this, or simply just need someone who cares enough to listen, you can always leave me a message. Good luck.

No. I want to be able to wake up everyday somewhere new and not have any idea where I'll end up. I wish I could just travel the world spontaneously but sadly, high school doesn't allow for that much. And next I have college, and then a career. Hopefully I'll have a good salary so I can take nice long vacations and have no idea where I'll end up in 3 days. I also wish I had the freedom to be a photographer without having to worry about being a starving artist. Maybe someday everything will fall into place.

Hey sacredcow, anything is possible! Keep your dreams up and never let go. There will sure be distractions here and there as you pass through life, but that's life, isn't it? As long as you know what you want, just do one thing.. work towards it! ;)

I want to make more money with my home business. I am doing my part to get customers. I just need them to come to me. I want a better relationship with my child. I am talking to her daily and doing my very best. I want to continue to be happy in my relationship so I am open and honest with my man. I want to continue to remain a size ten. so,I limit myself with snacking and junk food. I even wish I could join a gym and do some zoomba classes. Right now this is all I need and it would be greater..

I think that mostly, everything is going to plan with the way that I want to live my life. For the moment at least. Now in a few months, everything might be all wrong. And a few months ago, there were more things that are wrong, but I managed to readjust some paths in my life. Therefore, I am going to really get many things done to correct those problems and things are going to really work out for all of the better. Right now, the life that I live is not perfect but I didn't expect it to be. Mostly everything is going to plan for really allow me to be comfortable and rather enjoying a lot of things about life. Life tends to move forward, and there are just a lot of things about time making me smile. Right now hopefully things are going to turn right for the better. Right now, I can't complain, I really can't. As things change, you just never know.
