I am at my best when I feel confident .
I will try to prevent times when I get mad .
I will enjoy my work by finding employment where I can learn new things.
I will find enjoyment in my personal life through strong friendships .
I will find opportunities to use my natural talents and gifts such as decision making.
I can do anything I set my mind to. I will apply for college in Yale, start gymnastics and ballet again .
My life's journey is about my pursuit to happiness. Its like my whole life, in every aspect, I am just searching for what gives me the sense of happiness, sometimes I find sadness, but that is just part of the pursuit. I am currently in a state of confusion, in a sense, that I am very unhappy, because I am so far away from my goals, which all lead to being "eternally happy." I am doing it for no one, but myself. I am doing it for the reason of being happy within myself, because only a truly happy person can rest. I will be a person who made a difference, who stood up for what she believed in no matter who didn't agree with her opinions. Someone who understood the needs of people and helped them through everything not hoping to get something back. .
My most important future contribution to others will be me being able to see how far I can go, give to others what was never imaginable of giving, it inspires and fuels my drive to keep going. I want to give back not only to my community, but other communities, it and pushes me to work harder for what I want in life. It also helps me to recognize that I can have anything or do anything I set my mind to.
