In the pursuit of happiness and for the sake of getting back into blogging, I’ve decided that there is no better time than now start up a new section of my site. In my search, I have found an affinity for the website The Happiness Project and decided to do an offshoot of my creativity blog which will be focused on the same thing.
After all, isn’t that what we’re all looking for? A little bit of happiness?
It’s usually very easy for me to find happiness around the holidays with my family and during times when things are going well externally, but what about when things don’t seem to be going my way, when I have a bad day or find out really upsetting news? Well, that is a much greater challenge. Although I see myself as a generally happy person, I always see room for improvement and thus, I am taking on my own Happiness Project in 2011.
There are things that I do which bring me joy and increase my happiness quotient and there are things I hate to do which completing increase my happiness quotient, and there are things which are true tragedies that I can learn to overcome. It’s all about perspective. So I’m going to take this year of 2011 and focus on using perspective as a tool to find happiness and to use that happiness to strengthen my own perspective.
