David Steindi-Rast explains how being grateful makes us happy. Steindi-Rast claims that if we look back to when we were grateful we will find out that most of the time it is an opportunity to enjoy but we miss it because we are rushing through life unable to see this opportunity. He also states that when a challenge faces us we rise to that opportunity. David purports, "It's so simple that it's actually what we were told as children when we learned to cross the street. Stop. Look. Go." If people stop take a look we will often see the opportunity of gratefulness, but people often rush through life causing them to miss the opportunity just because they don't stop.
Happiness is not a goal people should have because they will most likely not find what they seek. Happiness is like a butterfly, you try to capture it and you'll damage its wings. Happiness will most likely happen when we are not extremely thinking about what makes us happy, but when we go on with life without having to think about happiness. When people think about their own happiness they tend to over think and question themselves if they really are happy with what they are doing in their life. Often time when people feel happy they tend to drown it in their fear of not knowing how to be or feel happy.

I would say I have a lot of self control. Whenever i would ask my mom for a candy she wouldn't even bother worrying about me getting hyper. I believe the reason why i have a lot of self control is because I tend to isolate my self at times. For example, When we do group activities in classes and my group is off task I ignore them and I do my work. Another reason why i think i have a lot of self control is because I am a really shy person. When it comes to having a conversation with me it gets awkward in an instant. Another reason I have self control is because I'm patient. I would never get mad at anyone or annoyed at anyone whenever they need help or are doing things to annoy me. For example, I have a younger brother which all he wants is attention. My younger brother would do anything to get the attention he wants by doing things to annoy everyone else but, i would just have patience with him.
