I'd say 7. There are a few things in my life that I need to make changes in and tonight I made that decision. Tomorrow, I start making a list!!
Had a great night tonight with co-workers at a going away party for another co-worker who will be leaving Wednesday. I work with some fun people! But, came home to find my AC has gone caput!! UGH!! Not good! Hope everyone has had a great Saturday and will have a terrific Sunday!!

I'm going to put these quote on my page soon, but I thought I'd share them with you now.
As for the depression - all I'm going to say is I relate. I don't want to say anything that will disrupt anyone else's therapy or upset anyone point of view.
“Friendship is Love without his wings!”
“Love is the flower you’ve got to let grow.”
“True love is quiescent, except in the nascent moments of true humility.”

This is a cool challenge you're doing. :D

I'd give myself a 6.5. I am not afraid of change and welcome it....sometimes slow to change. Old habits can be hard to break. I will take responsibility for changing my bad habit of snacking....at least 3days this week.

Hmm. Well, the thing is, I have recently realized that I have two ratings regarding change. If it is change that I choose, such as deciding to move to another province, or change jobs etc, then I am stressed, but have tons of courage to do it. When it is an enforced change, like my boss decides to move our location, or a favourite shop closes, well... that just frustrates me. So I am really not sure how to rate this.
I HAVE been doing something that raises my rating... I let stuff go more easily. That's what happens when you have stressed yourself to illness and depression. If I am depressed, then I honestly don't care. And if I am not depressed, then I consciously think "not worth the stress" and let it go. Win win?

Try not to think of rating as a negative act, Rona; it's more a kind of ratio to see if you're happy with things as they are or willing to change them for the better.
Take care and have a good weekend.

I suppose it depends what I'm doing! Generally I'd say 5 or 6, but when it comes to making phone calls or applying for a job or an interview or something serious like that then it's more like a 2 haha. However, I've found that doing the things that you fear more frequently make them much easier, so maybe I'm at a 3 now :3

I range about an 8. I like the freshness of most changes, even able to look at the gifts of the changes that I didn't expect. Soooo, stepping things up. Move it to a 9 overall, keeping in mind that depending on the situation and the change I can make it to a 10!

Wow, interesting track you're on. I love working for change, too; though sometimes, it's not that easy to accomplish! Good luck!

Today's challenge is a wake-up call for me. I think my rating is a 3 now, but when I was younger it was an 8-9. When I was 28, I moved from one coast to the other just because I wanted a change of scenery. Now I am afraid to go back to school to change careers. How sad is that? Okay, it's time to raise the rating back up. Next day off I will start researching schools to apply to. Already put it on my calendar. Have a great weekend, all!

well I do have courage when it comes to personal improvements like losing weight and eating right. My fear (lack of courage) comes from switching jobs. I have been working for 32 years with the same person at 2 different firms (12 with one and 20 with the current one). Now with the economy I am afraid to make a change and not have security. The first step is to make a resume something I have never done for myself. It is so easy to do something for others ad yet I find it difficult to do for myself! So I would rate myself right in the middle with a 5.
I have had a great vacation full of relaxation. We don't have a signed contract but I think we have a buyer for my mother in law's apt. Please send positive energy that it happens so we can close that chapter.
While I have been on vacation my ipad wasn't allowing me to reply or smile so although I visited and read some posts I wasn't able to comment. Sorry everyone b

Sending positive energy for selling your mother-in-law's apartment. As for the courage to change jobs, it depends on the industry, one's professional network, among other things. It is not easy, but I am in the middle of changing jobs right now. If you need help with resume and/or cover letter writing, mock interviews, send me a message. I'll be happy to help any way I can. Enjoy your vacation!!!
