The Happiness Project

I just finished reading "The Happiness Project" by Gretchen Rubin. I'm recommending it for all my avid readers out there. It is a fairly quick read and very refreshing. I'm not going to go on and on about the book. I will let it speak for itself. Below are a few of her key points.

Twelve Personal Commandments

Be Yourself.
Let it go.
Act the way I want to feel.
Do it now.
Be polite and be fair.
Enjoy the process.
Spend out.
Identify the problem.
Lighten up.
Do what ought to be done.
No calculation.
There is only love.

Four Splendid Truths

First: To be happier, you have to think about feeling good, feeling bad, and feeling right, in an atmosphere of growth.
Second: One of the best ways to make yourself happy is to make other people happy; One of the best ways to make other people happy is to be happy yourself.
Third: The days are long, but the years are short.
Fourth: You’re not happy unless you think you’re happy.




On a side note. Pup made it successfully to Canada last night. He found the couch in Brandon's apartment and has already settled in. I know he is loving that cooler weather!
