Seeing how much people can struggle financially and how much its affects their lives puts things in a different perspective for myself, taking things for granted almost never ends well. Seeing one family that had a fair amount of financial security, yet lose it all due to a job loss was humbling, showing me how truly temporary all of these things are. I also find it interesting to see the dynamic of circumstances, situations and problems that all of these families dealt with and how they all dealt with a few similar and different things in comparison to one another. As well as seeing how each family, and the members of these families, dealt with each one of these issues showed me just how much one’s financial situation can change their perspective and beliefs.

Choosing to Live Happily Does it ever appear to you as if people live their lives trying to attain happiness? The decisions people make every day seem to revolve around what will make them the happiest. No one knows the true meaning of happiness but we all want to have it. Many people try to attain happiness through actions or things. Some people buy everything that they want to try and make themselves happy.
How does someone know if they are truly happy? Much of society have come to associate happiness with the pursuits of personal pleasures or that which makes us “feels good”. When we feel good we display positive expression of emotions such as joy, laughter, kindness and fewer negative emotions such as anger, hate, and sadness.
