The Happiness Project


Before my “Spring break,” I picked up this fabulous book entitled, The Happiness Project written by Gretchen Rubin. The catcher for me was the subtitle: Or Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun. After reading the subtitle, this seemed like the perfect book for me.

While you are reading the book, it really feels as if she is talking to you about how things are going.  Happiness is a choice? Happiness is a way of thinking? I found her book to be fascinating and an interesting look at life. Why do we chose to be unhappy? Reactions? Empathy? Attention?

As draw near the end of the book, I find myself slowing down. I am anticipating the end of the book….I want the happiness I feel while I read this book to continue. Perhaps this is defeating the purpose…and I am hindering my own happiness.

Thank you Gretchen for writing this book.
