The Happiness Project
One of my pals, Ash kept speaking on her
facebook wall about a book called
THE HAPPINESS PROJECT
There are those books that I read for entertainment
then there are those books that I read
because they put life back into my thinking.
One other books that have done this for me?
THE PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE
I decided after reading a little about the book
that it was something I needed to look into.
Oh my, it will be a book I quote from
for some time. Rubin writes the book
not because she is depressed, not because
she is unhappy but merely because she believes
there are things we can all do that makes our lives
even more fulfilling, finding the joy in little things.
Her writing appeals to me as it is so easy to absorb.
She quotes from another writer,
Colette, words that were haunting her before she started
the HAPPINESS PROJECT
"What a wonderful life I've had! I only wish I'd
realized it sooner"
She then writes,
"I didn't want to look back, at the end of my life
or after some great catastrophe, and think,
"how happy I used to be then, if only I'd realized it"
This book has been profound for me.
I will be sharing more of it here on my blog
because I feel we all need to be reminded of just
how lucky we are and who doesn't want to get as much
happiness from our lives as is possible.
If you looking for a good self-help book,
this is the one to purchase.
