I enjoy memories and memories with themes or goals seem to be even more so in my taste. I had been resistant to reading the Happiness project since my co-worker told me about it like 18 months ago. It didn't seem like something i'd like, i thought it would be cheesy, campy, and just a bit to much sunshine in a book. After reading MWF Seeking BFF, where Rachel talks about this book and Gretchen I was a bit more interested. I looked into the book and realized it had more research and less whinning then Eat Pray love, and could be a good insprisation for getting my life on a better path. The book gave me some interested insight into changing my life, noticing things, being happier, and making an adult cross correction. I wish this book would have come out when I was in grad school and struggled with depression and unhappiness but as she says maybe this time is better something about the teaching coming when you are ready to learn. I read the book VERY quickly over the course of weeknd, i think i'd recommend taking a bit more time to think about and process some ascpets of it. Overall I'm glad I read it and look forward to putting some things into play in my own life.
