I have to admit. Reading The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People took me a lot longer than I expected. Somewhere between the beginning and the end I took a pause to venture into another book, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t think The 7 Habits was a book worth finishing.

While reading The 7 Habits, it reminded me a lot of a book I previously read, How to Win Friends and Influence People.

I may look like I have it all together from the outside, but to be honest, I don’t and I’m still constantly trying to figure out where to find my happiness. I officially spent more time in Italy than any other country this year, but I was able to spend more time with my family this summer than I have since moving away from home in 2012.
