The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was reading the above referenced and how much I was enjoying it. Never did I think it would peak my interest so much and never did I think it could be a book to change my world.
To anyone out there who wants to live a happier life, who wants to wake up and savor the small things, and who wants to conquer pesky annoyances, this is the book for you.
I had heard about this story from a few others, but have to admit that I really didn't pay much attention to the meaning or what it was all about. When I finally picked it up (and couldn't put it down), I would lay in bed each night thinking about what I had read and how I could incorporate some of the book's relevant themes and topics into my life.
Here's to say that I'm happy (hence the name of my blog), but I think we can all be "happier". There are times when we get down, when we gossip because it makes us feel better (totally calling myself out), when we get upset and act out because well, we just do.
A little background about the book: Rubin wanted to be happier, so she created a "project" to make her own set of life resolutions, to do things to help make her happier, and held herself accountable for an entire year.
I won't tell you how it ends, but I will tell you I am working on my own happiness project and it's something I am going to start in January. I'll be updating once I establish my own set of truths/goals/rules to live by, but wanted to fill you all in on a book that I loved... sometimes I think these things are worth sharing and I think it's something a lot of you would really enjoy!
If this is something you think would be fun, check out the website with all sorts of helpful advice to get you going!
