  7. Javier:

    9 going for a 10!

  8. Drew:

    about a 7, give or take.
    pretty happy, pretty not happy, i’m over it.

  9. Grace:

    I have good days and bad days, but about a 6 or 7. I’m slowly realizing that lately, while I have not been unhappy, neither have I been truly happy either. I just…am, whatever that means. I go through my days, and I SEEM like I’m happy, but if I slow down to think about it, I’m neither.

    I would say a 7 or 8. This eye infection of mine really sucks and I’m not happy about it at all. Get rid of that and I’m at a 10.

  12. A seven..and rising steadily. I aim for a 10 simply because I’ve finally got the strength of purpose to do two tasks…1) release and stop the things that no longer make me happy or don’t make me happy at all and 2) to allow myself to be more happy with things as they are. Happiness is often right where we are and only requires simple fine tuning.

  13. Ems:

    Id say about a 8 or 9. My partner and I earn well below the average wage, money can be tight. But we realise ‘things’ dont make people happy, our life is nice, we both have jobs so we can eat and rent a home and run 1 car. I cycle. We laugh and have fun together, we are healthy, at this moment no stress. This time last year we lost everything chasing a dream. We even spent time living in a tent or being put up by family. We just got on and rebuilt our life. I have everything I need, dont want much, and Im happy!

    7. “There is nothing we can do about anything. We must learn to bear it.” <– quote I read in a book while I was on the subway (some guy was reading it, and I happened to glance over and read that line.

    There are always things to complain about, because life is always going to throw us obstacles. I've learned over the years that you just have to make the most of things, or find a way to do something about them. Complaining is always pointless though.

    15 years back I was almost suicidal – 1 on good days. I blamed the world and others for all my woes, yada yada…then, over a period, I met a good therapist who eventually turned into friend and mentor, went back to school as a mature aged student, got a couple of degrees after I discovered that University really WASNT where all the smart people were…and then took responsibility for my own life and the outcomes within it. It hasnt all been smooth sailing, I lost my MUm, Dad and Sister, all to cancer over 5 years and a failed marrieg as well…however now I am happily married to a Texan lady who treats me like a king, I am in the business of changing companies perspectives on people and thus improving lives and have had the opportunity to travel the world doing it, I volunteer my time in various areas where possible and ride a Harley all over when the mood takes me…we truly DO have the power to change our own lives if we so choose and while I still have VERY occasional bad days I also know its up to me what I do with what happens…so, 8-9 nowadays…

  17. Mandy:

    I’m healthy, my husband and kids are healthy &happy.
    I’m very thankful. God has been very good to us.
    Thankfulness is the key. No matter what. Be content.
    Some one out there always has it worse.

  18. winston:

    To be truthful I’m living in my good ole days now I’ve never been happier but that in comparison to my childhood some cash would be nice though.

  19. TSC:

    When I saw this posting this morning, I contemplated for some 5 brain-seconds on how I would rate my happiness today, and I took a step back and said to myself: “The day’s just begun, why not start it off right?” So I settled with myself and just rated my happiness at a 10…strangely enough, now that the sun has set and the night begun, my day has been an unexpected 10, and I see some possible happiness to explore underneath the moon’s rays.

    So, to my fellow followers of, I advise you to wake up tomorrow, or even right now, and just see what happens if you start your day off on a 10. You might surprise yourself πŸ™‚

  20. pnog:

    my rational answer is 10.
    my emotional answer is 7.

  21. Rachel:


  22. Danny:

    4-5. Just can’t get over my ex, she haunts my mind although she is happy and I want the best for her. And I have roof over my head, food on the table etc and still complaining so that brings me down too.

  23. 6

  24. aeiR:

    4-5, thesame as danny’s story. im stuck

  25. Debbie:

    11 πŸ™‚

  26. Sk:

    10. I have amazing parents, a loving family and awesome friends, I’m studying something that i’ve always wanted. I have a roof over my head and food in my stomach. What more could i want?

  27. Jessica:

    i’d say about a 7. I’m not unhappy, and have many great things in my life, but I wouldn’t say that I’m really truly completely happy. The annoying thing is that I don’t know why I feel that way, so I haven’t figured out how to fix it.

  28. Somewhere around 7 or 8

  29. Danielle:


  30. 3ish.

  31. Alice:


  32. Dhaval:

    8 ……..reaching 10 soon……the only thing that bothers me is my thought process which i am on the mission to control ….

  33. A.A.Alamin:


  34. vcm:

    i’m happiest when i’m with him. sadly, he’s been out of my life and pushing himself out of my life more than i would have hoped for :/

  35. .:

    A goooood 7. Only reason it’s not a 10 is because the person i’m in love with doesn’t know I love her, but I do get to see her everyday so for that, i’m grateful.

  36. Conor:

    I honestly don’t know. I feel like I’m living with a facade and even I don’t know what’s truly behind it. Life is good, but I don’t really live it, I just exist. There aren’t many pieces actually missing. I would love to have some situation with a girl work out right. I’d love to have friends I could see every day.

  37. TP:

    TEN! πŸ™‚

  38. JLP:


  39. Richard:

    Right now.. 2 maybe 3.
    Sometimes everything is wrong

  40. Rayton:

    everything is good and well and I feel good about myself, but the routine I experience now is an atrophy and I feel less and less motivated as I move forward in it. I’m waiting for the change to come!

  41. Muppy:

    right now, not at all… so 0.

  42. Katy:


  43. Ashley:

    Ask me anytime from a year and a half to a few months ago and the answer would have been 1 or 2. Now, 9 πŸ™‚
