How do you rate your life:

I was asked a question that I couldn’t answer at the time. I was asked how do I rate my life? Like on a scale of 1 to 10 or what? And she said yes. I couldn’t answer that because it’s different each day. And she said to sum it up not in days but in months. So I would have to say a 5. My life is just in the middle or okay. But it got me to thinking my life has just been okay for years now. Why is that? Is it me or the people that I have around me? It’s both. When I was single it didn’t matter how often I traveled or how long I was gone or where I went. When I was single I explored more, I was curious more and often times I found myself asking some tough questions with myself. And now that I’m married, raising kids and having a husband you don’t always feel as adventurous. You don’t always have time to explore or be curious. And you definitely don’t have time for the tough questions. But what is my excuse now? My children are grown and right now we are in a pandemic. I have started asking myself the hard questions. I haven’t explored much. But one thing that has been on my mind is where do I want to see myself in the next 5 years? Do I still want the same friendships? Do I want to explore more? How can I find myself while doing life with someone else? I’m the type that likes to go with no destination in mind. Let’s just get in the car and drive. I don’t want my life to be a 5 all my life. I want to live life to the fullest. I want to be a 7 or 8 in the next 5 years. I understand that no one is holding me back but me. So how do you rate your life?

  1. Good question. I use to rate my life by belittling myself. I would always give myself low points because I felt a failure because of all the things I felt I didn’t have or acheived. Currently I rate my life by the joy and happiness I am learning to give to myself.
