After this weekend, there is only one person who I could think would be more satisfied than I...other than that, none.
I also say none. While many people might not be satisfied with my life, I am entirely satisfied. My husband and I may not have it all yet, neither do most people my age....and we're soooo happy, and I just can't imagine anyone being more satisfied, maybe equal, but not more.
Three. The 3 people above my comment. They're equally happy-go-lucky.But I'd have to say that my way of life is unique, so I'm also happy with the way I live. Some people are masochists and do shameful things with their lives.
Had you aked me this question last week, I would have said I was about 80 percent content and that there weren't many who could be happier than I. Today, I am about as happy as you can get (funny how that works, eh?) and I would be hard pressed to find many that were happier. I have the job I love, a new house, wonderful child, supportive family...... and a wonderful girlfriend that I love dearly. Who knew it could be this good?
It would vary between 2 and 20, depending on the weather and other random factors.
I tried to post my response last night, but the blog gods intervened...and for good reason. Yesterday was rough, so I would have to say that just about all of those 100 were leading a more satisfying life than mine.Today, however, I'm in a much more chipper mood (and I've had a LOT of coffee this morning), so I'd say that right now, probably half are leading a more satisfying life than me. You must remember that I'm in graduate school, where they dump a continuous pile of work on you...which isn't very satisfying at all. On the other hand, I enjoy doing this stuff, so I shouldn't bitch that much. My life will become much more satisfying when I am finished with this program and get a real job doing what I actually want to do, though, which should bump my cynical ass up in the top 10.
What's up with all these people saying none? I mean the very fact that we're taking time to respond to a post on a blog should suggest something. Surgeons, soldiers, politicians...even a social worker is leading a fairly exciting and satisfying life. Except for me. My life rocks. None.
I'm going to say "half." Just because it seems like it'd be accurate.
I would say 50, as I am not sure if I am a glass half empty or half full sort of person.
Mr. B, you coined the indecisive spirit that plagues mosts american's hearts.
