This book came along, in the form of a Christmas gift from my mom, at a fortuitous time. I had decided that my 2013 process was going to be about having more fun. Gretchen Rubin created her happiness project for much the same reason.Each month, Rubin explores a different theme (attitude, family, etc.) and talks about her experiences as she stretched herself to create more happiness in each area. Sometimes she was frustrated -- which reminded her that she had to know what felt bad in order to also understand better what felt good.Rubin said that she did not manage a perfect day in the entire process, and that made it all the more human to me. I've already implemented some of her ideas and, although it is early days yet, I anticipate that this book will not only be of help with my 2013 process but will also be revisited frequently.
