The Happiness Project

I just finished reading The Happiness Project, by Gretchen Rubin. If you haven’t read it – I’d suggest you get to the library. The book is about Gretchen’s challenge to live her life to the fullest. It really made me evaluate things in my life that I could do better, or enjoy more.

    I am currently reading this book and find Rubin’s insights refreshing. I found this colorful book in an Anthropology store and thumbed through it and thought it would be a fun and productive read. I have turned down many pages. My favorite quote thus far has to do with relating growth to happiness. Rubin quotes William Butler Yeats who wrote… “Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing or that, but simply growth. We are happy when we are growing.” I love that.

    I love this Anna! I’m so glad you commented. We are working on a planner, and I think that quote just made the list!

    Thanks for reading!
