I took on Discovering Your Happiness 56 questionnaire of finding out who you are and where you stand. Going through each one of these really gets you thinking deeply about yourself. I hope you enjoy getting to know me more and don’t forget to check out Discovering Your Happiness blog!
- Do I believe that everything is meant to be, or do I think that things just tend to happen for no reason at all?
I feel that everything is meant to be. Hardships are placed in our lives to see how strong we are and how we overcome that obstacle. Good times are there to help relieve those hardships and allow us time to heal.
- Do I forgive and forget? Or do I forgive, but always remember?
It’s hard for me to forgive and forget. I can do this but it depends on what they did to wrong me. I tend to lean-to forgive, but always remember.
- If I could give one piece of advice to everyone in the world, what would it be?
“Let every situation be what it is not what you think it should be.”
- Do I think that people can change, or that they just are who they are?
People can change most aspects of their life. For example, you can change what you look like, what you eat, and grow as a person. However, there are some personality traits that can’t be changed. You are who you are.
- Would I consider myself to be religious or spiritual?
- Would my 10-year-old self be proud of me?
Woof. It’s hard to say. When I was 10, I wanted to be a vet and own a huge horse farm. Basing it on dreams, I don’t think she would.
- What do I think is the best revenge?
Karma is the best revenge. Till then, keep your head up and smile. Your life doesn’t revolve around people who don’t matter.
- What would I change about myself?
I have this bad habit that it’s hard for me to say no to people and standing my ground with that decision. It’s something I’ve really been working on this year to improve.
- On the flip side, what would I never change about myself?
My work ethic, determination, and kindness is what I won’t ever change.
- Can I confidently say that the path I am on in life right now is the one that I (and no one else) would want for myself?
YES! I have fought and worked hard for being on the path I want to be on.
- It’s the year 2040. Where am I?
I would be 47. I would hope I have graduated with my Masters in Social Work. I want to have a house on a few acres so I can have a garden and a few animals. I want to be married and have adopted a few children who are on their way to becoming their own person.
- Am I a morning person or a night owl?
I’m so much better at being a morning person than a night owl. I can hardly stay up past midnight and I’m not as productive if I sleep in past 9. I just feel better overall if I wake up earlier in the day.
- Would I consider myself to be more creative or more logical?
I would definitely consider myself more creative than logical.
- What could I do to be a healthier person?
Learn to handle stress more efficiently.
- If time and money were no object, what would I do with my life?
Aw man. I would definitely want to travel and see the world. I haven’t really been outside the United States (other than going to Canada for a night but what Michigander considers that outside? haha). I would want to create several agencies to help those who are homeless, those who struggle with mental illness, build houses for those in need, and rescue animals and provide them with loving homes.
- Is it all about luck or hard work?
I have to say it’s a bit of both. Hard work will get you so far alone as the same with luck. Together they’re an unstoppable force.
- Should I live with no regrets, or learn from my mistakes?
Learn from my mistakes. It makes you wiser and more prepared for things to come.
- How would I describe myself in only five words?
Creative, Loyal, Workolic, Passionate, and Kind.
- Family first, true or false?
True. In the grand scheme of life, family will always be there.
- Can discipline be learned?
Yes and no. Depends on the person.
- Am I as loyal as I think I am?
- How could people be a better friend to me?
Not going to lie, I have some phenomenal friends. So none of this really applies to them. But in the past, many “friends” have used me for their own benefits and dropped me in a second after they have gotten their use. I like feeling appreciated like so many people do.
- How could I be a better friend to people?
Taking more time to reach out to friends I normally don’t keep in contact with.
- Is conformity a good thing or a bad thing?
Depends. I don’t believe you should conform your personality and appearance to match expectations of others. However, I do believe that things that need to conform, such as certain morals, to have a more peaceful Earth. I.e. Murder is bad. Everyone should agree on that no matter of what culture or background.
- What is a book I read that completely changed my outlook on life?
Ain’t No Makin’ It by Jay MacLeod
- How can I be generous when I am not rich?
Generosity doesn’t simply apply to giving someone money. Giving out your time to someone in need or just giving them an encouraging smile will go far enough and make a lasting impression.
- How can I improve dialogue and communication with those I deeply disagree with?
I just have to keep an open mind and heart with those who I disagree with. Everyone has an opinion for a reason, listen to it and make your own conclusions.
- If I had to make a list of my top 10 most important values, what would they be?
- What are my deal breakers for romantic relationships?
Cigarette smoking, dishonesty, and the inability to be their own person are definitely deal breakers.
- Do I love myself?
I’m learning to love the person I’m becoming. Thanks to all my support in life, this process is becoming easier each day.
- If not, how could I find a way to love myself?
There are still mornings where I wake up and cannot stand to see the person looking back in the mirror. Those days I take extra time to rattle off things I do love about myself.
- Is trust always earned, or is it a given until it’s broken?
I side with trust given until it’s broken. I often trust people I shouldn’t and I learn from it.
- If I could apologize to one person, who would it be?
- And what would I say to that person
I’m sorry I put you through so much. I’m sorry I allowed you to undergo situations and be around people who dragged you down. I’m sorry for not taking care of you when you needed it the most. I’m sorry that I stood there how you took abuse and never fought back. I took you for granted so many times. I should have treated you better in the past as I am now in the future. I need to be there for you more.
- If I was able to say one thing to my ex, what would I say?
I should’ve said no.
- If I could have one person apologize to me, who would it be?
A previous roommate.
- And what would I want them to say?
“I’m sorry for treating you like shit and stealing from you.”
- Do I ghost people or do I give them a reason for breaking ties?
I tend to do both depending on the situation and the person.
- Do I believe in karma?
I sure do. I believe the more good you put in the world, the more good will come back to you. If you intentional harm someone, then you ought to expect some repercussions to come your way.
- How do I show I am angry?
Normally, I’m a spitfire where I get super angry and it burns out quickly. Other times, I bite my tongue and have it fester inside. How I react depends on what environment I’m in.
- In my opinion, what are my greatest strengths?
I’m creative. I strive to self-teach myself things that I don’t know how to do. I’m a hard worker and take pride in that. I always want to grow as a person and refuse to be stagnant.
- In my opinion, what are my greatest weaknesses?
My greatest weaknesses are that I allow people to take advantage of me and I have a hard time accepting positive feedback with my art. I also am very hard on myself when I make a mistake.
- If I could go anywhere in the world, where would I go?
I have always wanted to go to Japan. Their entire culture just fascinates me.
- Is work-life balance important to me?
Yes, especially in my field. If you constantly take work home, then you won’t ever be able to refresh your mentality.
- Is family important to me?
- Is friendship important to me?
Yes. My friends are a part of my family.
- Is romantic love important to me?
Oh definitely. I adore my partner. He helps me accomplish my dreams and balances me in life.
- If I could have one talent, what would it be?
I want to be able to sing. I admire those who can sing well.
- What is one part of my life I miss and why?
My childhood. The adventures my family and I went on were fabulous. Till this day, I remember how excited and close we were when everyone squished into the truck and took the camper everywhere. We didn’t have a lot of money but we did have each other.
- What are elements from that time I could incorporate into my present?
The excitement of an adventure.
- Do actions really speak louder than words?
Hands down, yes. There are many times in my life where I had someone say that they’ll change or do something with no true action or effort behind those words.
- Am I happy with my career?
Yes I am. I’m lucky to find a good job in my degree. I’m blessed to be able to help people and my heart feels happy when I do so.
- If not, what could I change about my job to be happier and more satisfied?
- What’s more important to me, self-respect or being right?
Self-respect. You’re not always right all the time and it’s okay not to be.
- Do I learn from the past or live in the past?
I learn from the past. If I lived in the past, I would never be able to grow as a person. If I allowed those awful times in my past to keep me down, I would never be truly happy in life.
- When I die, what do I want to be remembered for?
I want to be remembered as a good person to those who known me. I don’t want to change the world, just help someone change their own world.
Thanks for reading!
