What does the idiom it's my lot in life mean?
It's a Biblical reference. Not to push religious belief, but the saying comes from the story in Genesis where Abraham and Lot part ways and Lot, not believing in Abraham's knowledge of God, seeks his own future and is tortured for it. Parts ways with what God has commanded multiple times and throughout his life seeks the wrong path. Therefore, in his life he finds trouble throughout. Many in this day in age who find trouble (perceived or otherwise) in life, claim it is their "Lot" in life that they must endure.

It's My Life (hopefully you mean the one written by Bon Jovi) is basically a song of rebellion and independence. He expresses how he'll make his own choices instead of letting… other people choose fro him. As quoted in the chorus "It's my life, it's now or never, and i ain't gonna live forever, I just wanna live while I'm alive." He's basically entailing that you should make your own life choices and have fun because you might just not wake up tomorrow, so live life to the fullest, don't let others weigh you down and take what you want from life.

Idioms are phrases or expressions whose meaning should not be taken literally. I cannot be understood by simply knowing and putting together the ordinary meanings of the separ…ate words in it. Examples: Contracts, agreements, and memos should be put into Black and White. (into writing) I burned the midnight oil whenever there's a test. (study thoroughly)
It means that it is raining very hard. The image is of cats and dogs falling from the sky along with the rain -- one joke says "I know it is because I just stepped in a poodle… (puddle)!" Rain is coming down very hard. It's pouring.
Hurry up, finish what you started, whats the main part of this question, stuff like that. It's not necessarily and idiom, just a popular saying people use.
A crap life. Correct answer: A dog's life is without responsibilities. Eating, sleeping, scratching, barking, sniffing and licking. Pretty good, all in all.
It means "to try it", a better way of saying it is "have a go at it" . happy speaking!
It's a nonsense phrase used when someone is upset or sad. You pat them on the back and say "There, there." You can also say "there, there, everything will turn out right."

The idiom, "spice of life", means that you can do something to make your life more exciting. Do something that's daring, challenging, fun; something that's worth living for.

An idiom usually is a sentence, or part of one. It certainly can be used as part of a sentence. The way to tell if it's an idiom is if it makes sense the way it's literally wr…itten.
"To be" is not an idiom - it's a verb.
