Tuesday night I went to a book event to meet Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project. Since January, I not only read and studied the book – I committed to my own happiness project. Writing Letters to Jodi.
Gretchen gave a light-hearted talk about her studies on happiness and how she implemented the theories into action. The result is she did raise her own level of happiness and is inspiring others to do so too.
You may think this phenomenon of happiness is another “feel good” in disguise to avoid life’s hardest realities. In the past five years, I too have been on a quest to discover the unknown truths about happiness. I wanted to know that if you experience suffering can you be happy – again?
Although Gretchen Rubin has not experienced my loss, we do share many perspectives and our commitment to personal growth. Her new-and-improved formula for happiness is : being happier requires you to thinking about feeling good, feeling bad, and feeling right, in an atmosphere of growth.
Would you like to join me – and be happier?
