A few recent conversations with friends, sometimes over morning coffee, other times late into the night, have had me thinking about happiness. Everyone has a different outlook on things, but more often than not, I try not to dwell on the negatives. I am optimistic by nature, or more likely, by teaching – my mom is crazy positive, even when you would least expect it. Of course there are rough patches (hell, some patches seem like they will be indefinite) but even during those times, there can be bits in the everyday that bring us joy.
I think I am going to pick up The Happiness Project for my next read – and see how it goes. Anyone else want to join in?
