The Happiness Project

I started to read this a while ago, but got to page like 40 and never picked it back up again. At that point in time I was constantly doing things for myself and now that I look back, actually felt like I had a place in the world and a plan for my life. Hence the reason I couldn't really make it through the book. I was fine and I didn't really need to learn how to be happier. Hah.

One year later and I'm at a standstill. I'm happy-ish, I guess you could say. Over the last year or so I've found myself sacrificing who I was to please other people. This weekend it finally hit me. After a nervous breakdown and an impromptu trip to Daytona Beach, I've cleared my head and come to terms with the fact that I need to do more things for myself.

While reading the last few pages of Not That Kind of Girl, I swear, Lena Dunham was talking right to me. I was half-tempted to read it again because I loved it so much, but decided to restart The Happiness Project instead. 

I need a change. But I need help to make that change. I've heard such great things about Gretchen Rubin's book and I'm so excited to start reading it!

Has anyone else read The Happiness Project? What did you think? Did it help you learn how to be happier with the things in your life? I would LOVE to hear your thoughts!
