I started reading Gretchen Rubin's My Happiness Project on Monday, August 13. Today, I'm about 2/3 finished reading. So far, I love it. Gretchen is candid, dead-on, and honest about her emotions and realizations through her journey.
To jump start her year-long project, Gretchen came up with 12 months worth of resolutions to help her find more happiness in her everyday life. So, this week, I'll do exactly that.
My own happiness project will also be a year-long (although truly lifelong) journey, but as she says in the preface, everyone's happiness project is different. Each individual has different areas in their lives that could use a little sprucing up or extra involvement (or less involvement!), so my personal journey to 'happier' will be wildly different than yours or Gretchen's.
I've also discovered a monthly The Happiness Project group here in Champaign! I'll be attending my first meeting with them at the end of this month. I'm so excited! Not only does this contribute to My Happiness Project, but it also fills my resolution to put myself out there and meet new people.
This week's Happiness Goal:
Write down your plan to achieve greater joy in your everyday living. Lists make you happy, so make it a good one and stick to it.
