The Happiness Project

So lately I've been reading a lot of books. It's the perfect weather to just relax and read a book without being too hot or cold! I mean, I've read more books in the past month than I had in the past two years! Some were books I'd been wanting to read forever (Dear John, Safe Haven, etc) and some were self-help type books on subjects I'm really interested in. Last week we were walking through the book aisle in Walmart looking for a coloring book (because I'm a two year old) and I spotted the Happiness Project.

I'd heard about this book a few times and wanted to read it. Normally I'd just check it out at the library but I bought this one. Sometimes it's nice to buy the book so you can write in it while you're reading it! Plus, I like adding to our tiny book collection from time to time. Haven't heard of it? Well it's basically about spending a year focusing on different areas of your life that you believe control your happiness. Areas that you'd like to improve so that you'll be happier.

I'm about 1/3 of the way through the book and I love it so far. When M saw it on the table, he said "aren't you happy?" He looked pretty worried! I am very happy but I think we could all be a little happier! It's making me look at what really makes me happy in my life. Sometimes the things I think control my mood really don't matter all that much!

I'll check back when I'm finished with the book to let you know what I think!

What are your favorite books? What makes you happy? Have you read the Happiness Project?


  1. Oh that sounds interesting! I'm always trying to find books to get from the library, so I might have to read this!

  2. I haven't read it but it sounds like a good one! I may have to get it but let me know if you like it when you're finished! I'm curious to see if it helps you :)


Tell me how you really feel! I love to hear from you so don't be afraid to give me an ear full, thanks for stopping by!
