Hooked on “Happiness”
From the first chapter of Gretchen Rubin’s “The Happiness Project,” I was hooked. One of the core things I appreciated most about this kind of self-improvement novelization is that the author isn’t speaking about improving happiness levels while coming from a level of absolute misery. She is someone like many of us; she’s working a job, tending to her relationship/marriage and her children and taking on activities inside and outside the home. Rubin is no unhappier than the average individual doing the same things, but she is aware that there are small, noticeable changes that can be made in multiple aspects of life that would allow for additional happiness.
