Corey's Happiness Project

Today I am starting My Happiness Project.

I have been in Pittsburgh, PA for nearly two years. I thought I would have done more in those two years. I find myself cleaning and complaining all of the time. I am not the person that I want to be or the person I want my children think of me as.

How do I want my kids to see me?

Easy to talk to
Always available
Interested in them

How do I do that?

Patience - I have so little. My childhood was crazy. I am providing a dysfunctional traditional childhood for my kids. I don't want that. I need to learn to be more patient. How do I do that? How do I get a bigger patience bucket?

I feel like patience is my number one priority

"I am not the person that I want to be or the person I want my children think of me as." - This is exactly the thought I had about myself today.

Good luck with your project. I look forward to being inspired by your progress!

Thanks, Corey. You haven't heard me lose it with my kids recently though. I don't deal well with conflict and I feel like I'm constantly surrounded by conflict, whether the kids are arguing or fighting or complaining or whining. It has just been sending me over the edge.
