Living the American Dream and the Pursuit of Happiness

What is it that will bring us this happiness? Happiness is found when we begin to discover that we have everything we need. I agree with Shasta Ballard when she stated, “I think as Americans we do take needed things for granted” (Blackboard). In our pursuit of the American dream we seem to look past all that we have right in front of us. It is these simple things food, water, shelter; safety, community, family, and friendships are where happiness lies.

Find Your Forward

In my reading, A Woman Who Doesn’t Quit, Nikki Koziarz writes ” We need stuff to look forward to. When life gets into the rut-cycle and we are just doing the same things over and over, it’s easy to want to give up on pursuing more. Whether you are the setting mini-goals type person or you need a reward to look forward to, set it! Mark it on the calendar! Do what you have to do to get there (2016).” What do you look forward to doing in your life? Can you set up mini sessions to help you meet your goal and choose to not give up?
