Book of the Month - The Happiness Project

I love reading  - anything chick lit and self analysis are my favourites.  As much as I love technology I can't go past the feel of a real book. Turning pages while snuggled under a blanket. My idea of heaven.

Anyway, this month's book has been the Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. I am nearly finished reading the account of Gretchen's year of trying to have more fun to increase her happiness and have enjoyed it immensely and can't wait to get started on my own version.

I am looking forward to sharing the journey as I map out my Commandments and Resolutions. This seems like an extension of my Goals work I have been doing with good friends for the last few years. I love setting out my Goals and meeting up every couple of months to put stars on the ones we have achieved. I am at heart a list maker who enjoys nothing more then seeing Gold Stars on a page as I accomplish things. (And yes I have been known to put something on the bottom of the lift that I have completed just so I can tick it off!)

I think my over arching theme for my Project will be - 

For me, it's about action. I love to dream and dream big. I love to plan and make lists and do all the background work, but I have struggled with the actual DOING part. So now is the time. Now is the time to take action to achieve my goals. (Actually tomorrow, as now I am off to bed - to finish reading Gretchen's journey.)
