Meme -- Rate My Life

Happily gacked from new friend (big wave) kittyangelchan! (You can view her meme here.)

This Is My Life, Rated
Take the Rate My Life Quiz

And the lovely analysis of the above info...

Your Life Analysis:

Life: Your life rating is a score of the sum total of your life, and accounts for how satisfied, successful, balanced, capable, valuable, and happy you are. The quiz attempts to put a number on the summation of all of these things, based on your answers. Your life score is reasonably high. This means that you are on a good path. Continue doing what is working and set about to improve in areas which continue to lag. Do this starting today and you will begin to reap the benefits immediately.

Mind: Your mind rating is a score of your mind's clarity, ability, and health. Higher scores indicate an advancement in knowledge, clear and capable thinking, high mental health, and pure thought free of interference. Your mind score is within a healthy zone. This means you have achieved a level of mental balance and harmony consistent with living a healthy, happy life. Continue doing what works, and keep your focus. In our fast-paced world, mental clutter is all too common. Be vigilant in maintaining healthy mental function.

Body: Your body rating measures your body's health, fitness, and general wellness. A healthy body contributes to a happy life, however many of us are lacking in this area. Your body score is fairly average, which means there is room for improvement. Keep a focus on your physical health. Protect your body as it is your most valuable physical asset. Nutrition, stress reduction, and exercise are key.

Spirit: Your spirit rating seeks to capture in a number that elusive quality which is found in your faith, your attitude, and your philosophy on life. A higher score indicates a greater sense of inner peace and balance. Your spirit score is dramatic. Continue on your path, do not stray. Continue to reap the rewards which your spirituality brings forth.

Friends/Family: Your friends and family rating measures your relationships with those around you, and is based on how large, healthy, and dependable your social network is. Your friends and family score is not bad but can be improved. Maintain your current social net, while you try to expand it. Try new things and form new friendships. You will be rewarded greatly.

Love: Your love rating is a measure of your current romantic situation. Sharing your heart with another person is one of life's most glorious, terrifying, rewarding experiences. Your love score is fairly average. Things could be worse, and thankfully they aren't. But you must work to improve this area, turn an average score into a great score.

Finance: Your finance rating is a score that rates your current financial health and stability. You have a rather good financial score, which is not all that common these days. Keep doing what works. Avoid common pitfalls and save for the future. You will be glad you did.
Here's the rub...

First off, stress needn't be a negative factor in life -- so when I'm being asked about stress I want the option to discuss positive stress (or whether or not I view stress as positive -- or how often I view stress that way). The 'love' questions are too conventional in my opinion. I happen to have a lot of love in my life -- and many opportunities to be loving, in return. But what if you don't believe in monogamy? What if your love comes from both genders? What if your idea of 'romance' is non-traditional, the way mine is? My 'love' score is low, but I feel it should be very high!

The same can be said of the 'friends and family' score. I strongly believe in the 'extended family' -- and am truly rich in those individuals who are like family to me, even if not related to me by blood or marriage! (Again, non-traditional views, perhaps -- but they've worked for me my entire life!) While much of my family is dead -- or I'm not close to those living -- that doesn't mean I don't have a very strong family support system. (In fact, it's probably far stronger than most people have...)

I was also disappointed that the 'mind' score didn't deal with continuing education on more levels. I'm always in the process of learning new things -- and I'm serious when I say that! I study history, new softwares, computer-oriented subjects and on and on and on. I'm usually reading one or more manual at any given time. I continue to learn new things, which I feel keeps my mind very active and sharp.

I supposed the bottom line is that my expectations are far too high for a mere meme -- but it comes across as more serious than most, so... (grin)

While few people would rate their lives a 10 out of 10 (including me), I call myself a high 8, for certain! (smile)

The 'body' category is where I fall down right now -- and I'm planning to work hard on that one starting now! (But if we're discussing body image and so on, I'm fine with all that. I've learned to love myself at all weights, for one thing...)

Oh! And my 'spirit' score was high enough that I was asked to share my 'Thoughtful Advice.' (grin)

Well, I guess that's enough time spent on this! Back to work...
