Gretchen sets out to try to increase her happiness level over the course of one year, by following through on a set of resolutions that she’s set for herself, and by letting herself be guided by her “Twelve Commandments“. The result is both encouraging and enlightening.
I loved how Gretchen wasn’t afraid to include parts in her book about her own failings and shortcomings — she shares about her bad days and moments, as well as her good ones. And, I love that I found in her a sort of kindred spirit — we both are prone to note-taking for no apparent reason, and have an obsession with finding just the right pen to write with. 😉
This book has inspired me to think about doing my own “happiness project”… but, whether I’ll actually make it through a full year or not is yet to be seen. Maybe I’ll start smaller. 😉
