Not how happy are you compared to what you wish you could/would have later, but just how you feel about where your life is right now. Are you happy with it?
For me, I am pretty darn happy. I’m about an 8/10. Sure I am carrying a great deal of unnecessary stress right now that is out of my control but when it comes down to where I am in my life, I think I’m very happy. I have a a man who loves me, I have a stable job, two degrees, great selfconfidence, and a decent place to live.
I don’t want to stay here where I am forever, but for the time being, I am glad I am where I am.
What about you?

I said 9/10. I’m halfway through my professional degree, and I’m getting married in eight days. If Fiance was here with me right now, I’d probably be a 10. There’s been a lot of dumb crap that we’ve gone through in this engagement… but we are better and stronger for it, and its not worth weighing us down.

I’m that annoying person that voted 10 🙂 wedding stress is over, we’re crazy about each other, me and Darling Husband have great jobs, we have a condo downtown and are currently in the process of building a house (we had put in an offer on another house and got it but the inspection came back bad, there’s always a reason for everything), gotta admit I’m lovin life right now!!

I voted 8.
I guess I have nothing to complain about, to be honest. There are things that I’d love to change, but I’m incredibly happy as a whole. It’s just silly little things and life stresses that don’t put me at a 10. 🙂

I voted 8 – I’m pretty content but things aren’t fantastic I am really busy at work and trying to wedding plan.

I put a 9. Just stress from work, school, and planning a wedding. But other than that everything is perfect.

I voted 9. I’m kinda weird about the “happy” thing. Like— I feel totally happy. I can’t really imagine feeling much happier. When I just think generally, I feel like my life is almost too perfect.
And yet I hate my job.
And I need to lose a serious amount of weight, which stresses me out.
And we have some family drama to deal with.
So really, there are pretty big things I need to work on. But somehow the parts of my life I kinda hate don’t really seem to affect the fact that I feel generally happy lol. I guess a good husband goes a long way!

- Wedding: June 2014 - Ontario, Canada ♥ EDD- April 2016
I’d say an 8 (: I’m happy and really love my life, but I’ve also been sick with a mystery illness (constant nausea) for almost six months now and it brings me down sometimes 🙁

I’m around an 8. Our house/land buying (or not) is really sitting on me. That’s probably my biggest complaint right now. Work is good. Darling Husband is good. Stepson is good. Cats are snuggly. Swans are nesting in our backyard. About to be an auntie for the third time. Nothing to complain about otherwise!

I think an 8. There’s a few things weighing on my mind like being sick of our apartment, and wanting something more challenging at work, and the whole ttc not being as easy as we hoped but overall, I’m healthy, have “enough” money, and a great husband and family that love me so life is good.

Hm. Not too happy. I think a 5, but I have really high standards. I am happy that I have stability with Darling Husband, that he just got a job in his field, and that I know what I want out of life and who I am/ my direction. However, I HATE where we live (I like the apartment, but I am super hating the city we are living in in the midwest). I really want and need to move. A lot of people have a lot of money here, and it is just NOT me. I secretly do not think I am meant to be an American. 🙂 I just mean, I miss living somewhere where people are not so entitled, or middle class, and where there is free recreation. You have to pay to camp, swim, and hike your dog here. It disgusts me.

To me saying saying 9-10 happiness is like practically no worries, life is grand, no stress, beach parties and good times all the way.
My life right now is around a solid 7. I am looking forward to the baby. Darling Husband and I are at a very good place in our marriage. Dirty Delete is doing great andlooking forward to summer session at school. But of course bills pile up, we wish we had more space, we have worries about the future. I am kind of done living in this town and I wish we could move but that would require so much change I don’t know if it’s the best plan, but feeling stuck affects my happiness for sure.

About a 5 – my job is only temporary, so my cash flow will die off in a few months, leaving me dependent on SO, I live far away from my family and friends and I miss them all terribily but need to stay here for work

I guess I’m one of the annoying ones that voted 10 too 😉 I think sure, there are stressful days and times when things go wrong. But if we never had any down times, the up times wouldn’t seem as good! In my view, I am incredibly lucky. I have wonderful family and friends, I’ve had great opportunities in my life, and I’m healthy and happy! More than anything I just feel thankful for having so many blessings, and that makes me feel like life is a definite 10!

6…. because I’m growing very impatient finishing up junior college to transfer and get my bachelors so that my SO and I can move to Europe. Also our house is too small… we need more space.
