Self Claims & Project References

1. Hate making decisions

2. I enjoy being with people most of the time, but there are days when I really like to just be with myself.

3. I’m ambitious until I reach a goal, then I slow down to catch my breath, make a new goal, and get going again

4. I’m always in a hurry to get places and do things. I’m not really a stop and smell the roses kind of person—I need to work on this.

5. I’m forgetful with little things but never forget the big things that really matter.

6. I hate confrontation because I don’t like to hurt people

7. I’m a very trusting person, of those I’m close with and strangers.

8. I have a really hard time focusing on things for a period of time—this may be why I am always rushing to do the next thing

I think these claims definitely relate to my project, which aims to help others and myself understand happiness. I talk a lot about being in a rush and not taking the time to stop and realize how lucky I am and just be happy with what I have. I’m always trying to hit another goal or accomplish something else. I don’t ever give myself the time to reap the benefits of my hard work. I’m hoping that through these resources, I can accomplish my goal of understanding happiness a little bit more 🙂
