On a scale of 1 to 10?
How does one translate their happiness into fixed digits?
I am creative when I’m making artwork for myself.
I am independent because I think innovatively despite several failed attempts.
I am capable of realizing that it’s okay to say no once in awhile.
I am cherished when I surround myself with family and friends.
I am brave because I have gone cliff jumping despite my fear of heights.
I am confident when I stand for and protect my morals and beliefs.
I am strong when I beat my personal record in the weight room.
I am dynamic because I allow myself to be open to change.
I am proud when I pour my passion into the character I am portraying on stage.
I am important because I have myself to offer to the world.
