    for some life has been perfect with good career, relationships and family. Why for some just like me has stable  my work but just can't be lucky in love. Sigh

      no one has a perfect life. It might seem perfect to you, but then your life might seem perfect to someone else. You never know whats going to happen tomorrow either.

          love has a way of finding you when your not looking anymore..
          one of the hardest things Ive done in my life was learn how to be happy by myself. Just when I got used to it and got it figured out, I ended up with my husband. I dont think I ever would have really been happy with him tho, if I wasnt already happy on my own.

      practice does NOT make perfect'. My motto is, 'Practice makes better' as nothing in life is perfect!! Everything can be improved and evolution and life's experiences has taught me this.

      Good luck beautyrose with your future love life!smile

      Through my life experience and I'm only 39, I've found the more you worry about it the less likely it is to happen. I had one long relationship and one short one then had enough of men (no offence intended). Until one day I came to visit my friend who had moved to another town. I decided to move to this town also (as things weren't going so well at the time) and my friend set me up on a blind date with this guy whom she new from the local pub and he turned out to be my soul mate, six years and one child later and we just got married last year. I guess what I am trying to say is 'Expect the Unexpected'.

      No one's life is perfect.  Remember, it is the hardships we go through that make us who we are.  You have learned that life isn't always perfect... in fact, it's never perfect.  We can have perfect moments.  You have humility, so you will find a partner that is right for you.  You may have to wait, but it'll be worth it.

      If life is perfect, then we will not be able to see and feel the opposite force, which is suffering. Suffering can sometimes or maybe almost always mold our character and strengthens us.
      Wait patiently for the things you desire. Pray for it. If it will not come then maybe you don't deserve it. There might be something good that comes out from it.

      There is no perfect life here.

      If it were what would you really be able to appreciate, how could you aspire to grow and improve your life.

      And what is perfect?

      Perfection is stagnation; who wants that?  Ble-ech! 

      Rewarding?  Much better!  Mine's been that--so far, anyway--with bunches of different careers, seven great marriages, and only two bankruptcies so far.  Now we suddenly have enough money to build a house on our land after literally starving all summer...as long as I do all the work myself and build with stuff  like our own dirt (literally, walls made of sandbags filled with dirt). 

      A (7th) wife so  ill she could  literally wake up dead any given morning but utterly beloved by yours truly...a humongous project in front of me...more projects in mind than any one man could possibly complete  in a dozen lifetimes...household pets and area wildlife that love us all...what could be better?

      Oh.  Y'all already covered pretty much the same ground.  Different words (like, for example,  "boring"!) but similar sentiment. 

      BeautyRose, I've got plenty of  love left over if you  want some.  After all, you'd fit right in, what with my wife Pam's nickname being Tinker Bell and all.  lol

      everyone will be happy with a perfect life but the reason our lives arent perfect is cause we always want more than wat we already have as humans we're never happy with what we have and who we are. plus with out suffering you wont be able to grow its like working out you wont ever have any muscles if you dont feel the burn. you feel me lol hoped that helped

      Life can become perfect only if you know the answer to the following questions.

      What's your purpose to be in the world ???
      How to achieve that purpose ???

    What would we learn if life were perfect? and wouldn't it be boring?

    (Besides, what would we write about on HubPages?)

    I remember an old Twilight Zone episode where a man had died and gone to his after-existence. All day he did everything he wanted to do on earth. He drank beer, smoked cigars and played pool all day. He always, always, always won the game.

    After a while he got bored with winning, and was told he literally could not lose-- he would always win the game. "Where's the fun in that?" he said. It was not his idea of heaven, after all. Then he found out it was NOT heaven.

    There IS a perfect love though - that's from Jesus.

    But then again, don't fret. Love isn't something to be pursued. It's like a butterfly - catch it and it will flutter away; sit still and it will come to you. smile

    Love isn't an object to be found nor is life meant to be perfect, whatever that means! Love is something you give away without any expectation of anything in return, and life is simply how you handle what comes your way. When you live your life giving love unconditionally, what you seek, will find you!

    Even in love is no perfection, not the love you seek anyway. Perfection is the love we seek in the labor of it all. Then Nick or whomever comes knocking at your door with his sythe in hand.

    Ah sweet seduction, invade my dreams!

    Conquer my fantasy!

    Relish the reality of rapture,

    As we push each other over

    The pinnacle of pleasure,

    To drown in desire,

    Swept away in the rush of release!

    Oh sweet ecstasy never let me go!

    Wrap me in your loving arms

    and let this feeling grow.

    I want to say here with you

    for all of time to spend,

    climbing higher and higher

    with no beginning and no end!

    What great replies you've gotten here - man, I love these Hubsters! big_smile I read a column by a woman who was in her nineties about the lessons she had learned in life.
    One thing she said was that if we all went and tossed our problems into a big pile so that everyone could see all of them laid out, we'd scramble to take our own back and quit complaining about them. Not that this is always the case, but probably in most instances it would be. Hope you find all you're looking for (or better, all that truly makes you happy).

    Its sheer  good fortune, to be blessed in love,
    To know you are wanted,above all else.
    For its the uniqueness,of your individuality
    that fragrantly permeates the air ,all around.
    Your world spins at a different speed
    And the heart beats and thumps,with music thats soulful.
    Its one that you can hear and no one knows.
    Enjoy it,cherish it,for you never know a good thing,
    Till its gone out of your life ,
    in a flash without a murmur or sound.

    Sweetie, life IS perfect. You seem to have missed that point.

    Wherever you are in life is where you are supposed to be. The trick is to not fight it. Learn from your trials, and most of all don't let them swallow you up.

    I know how difficult it is to not live in the pity pot when you feel that your life is unfulfilled in some way. It's easy to focus on just that and not notice all the other little miracles that happen to all of us on a daily basis. When you start to notice THOSE, that is when life changes.

    Want a little trick? Be grateful. Show gratitude for what you do have and make room for what you CAN have.

    Now, take a deep breath. Let it out. Focus on the good stuff around you. Involve yourself in the good aspects of your life. Everytime your mind turns to the crummy stuff, gently pull it back to the good.

    Let your mind be open and accepting of whatever God or the universe or your higher power or whatever you call him/her/it, can supply. . .and WILL supply.

    Then, with your mind open, cleared of all the junk, and an open heart, put one foot in front of the other and do what LIFE asks of you.

    Trust me honey. . .this is a sure fire way to make sure you have a fulfilling life.

    Good Luck!

    Things happen for reasons, maybe you will just need to wait for something good to happen.  Until then, don't let it bother you, enjoy your life.

    If you think your life is perfect, then it is perfect.

    If you sigh and woe for the perfection, you will never be happy...

    It's all a matter of perspective, knowing your limits and capabilities and creating fair expectations for yourself.

    And relax wink That also helps!

    this will sound sooooo silly.  I have been told you have to love yourself first.......  send out positive vibes..

    Now here is the silly bit..... Anyone who loves their feet and looks after them, loves themselves apparantly.  Go get a pedicure and reflexology, apparantly it could help you..... tried it, i found it helpful actually.... the right man wont drop from heaven, but you may be able to define exactly what you are looking for, and exactly where you will find it... let us know wont you...
