The Happiness Project!

We have a new bloggers in town. Miss Vogelsanger is starting a new blog called VOGEL'S HAPPINESS PROJECT. She bought a 5 year journal, which is called "The Happiness Project”. According to description on Amazon, the journal contains quotes for each day.  One can reflect on the quote at the top of the page, and jot down just one sentence (perhaps about something good that happened that day). Vogel is starting her journal on January 1, 2013 and plans to go all the way to December 31, 2017 with an intention to appreciate the beauty in both ups and downs.

I also plan to read the Happiness Project book.

When I read about the Happiness Project, it got me excited too.  I also placed an order for the Happiness Project Journal at and for the first time in my life ordered something with one day shipping.  I also want my journal to get here before the new year and hopefully it will make it on time.  So like Vogel, I am also going to start on my happiness project on January 1, 2013.  I don't know if I can get through to the end! Guess time will tell!  My grandfather used to write dairy for many many many years, a habit that I wanted to embrace but just could not. Betsy from BetsyLife also writes The Great List every Friday where she reflects on each week.  and then there are some other bloggers who do similar things on different days.  While I think this is a great idea and want to do it, I just have not been able to do so.  May be I am not mentally prepared.  However, I feel that keeping a one sentence journal is a good start!  Keeping my fingers crossed.  I will keep you posted on how it goes!

Hi, I just wanted to leave a message to say that I really liked the picture on your blog and have recently finished reading that same book. Mixed feelings about the writing but definitely gained something
