I'm really happy I'm not married to her.
She admits that she nags and is often argumentative, so I will grudgingly give her points for honesty. But while I was shaking my head at her bitchiness toward her husband, I had an epiphany of sorts. While I'm not a nagger, I realize I can be a pouter and that I don't do nearly enough to ensure my husband is happy. Really happy. I take it for granted that he's there, and I shouldn't. Making him happier will make me happier.
I can work with that. One month focuses on friendships.
She encourages us to make time for friends and to be there. All those events you don't like? Tupperware sales party! It means a lot. Another thing Rubin suggests is to reach out and make three new friends.
I have to admit that's a tough one for me, I can't keep up with the good pals I have now.
Plus, as I get older and social anxiety creeps up like a cheap pair of underwear, the friend making thing takes much more effort. Another month is about leisure and play. In this chapter she talks about starting a collection. People really do get some pleasure out of searching for treasures and seeing them accumulate.
The inanity of her advice reaches its peak in her "download yourself nice things" month of making herself happy even though she admits to not being unhappy in the first place.
Save yourself, and skip this entitled, vacuous, and annoying read. A light story written and read by Gretchen Rubin, telling about the year long project she did to increase her happiness. You can follow her structured plan to create your own personal happiness project.
Don't wait, "The days are long, but the years are short. Really liked this one. If you are looking to live a more fulfilling life and wanting to add more happiness to your every day, this book may give you some inspiration to achieve that. However, if you are looking more for a guide towards that purpose, this is not the book for you.
It is filled with the author's very personal and systematic way of achieving happiness in her life. It's an easy book to read. It can get boring at some points but overall I enjoyed it. I really tried to like this book but I just couldn't!! No for me, not worth it!
So many others, way better than this one Very few of us can take a lengthy time-out from life to Eat, Pray, Love. Gretchen Rubin's very well researched book, The Happiness Project, offers a simpler alternative by suggesting numerous small ways to boost our happiness without making dramatic life changes.
I agree with many of Gretchen's thoughtful suggestions and her slice-of-family-life anecdotes will appeal to many parents with young children.
On the other hand, Gretchen Rubin is an ambitious young Yale-educated lawyer who married into an extremely wealthy and very politically connected family.
At the start of the book, she admits to marrying her perfect soul-mate, having healthy and happy children, and having the resources to work in her dream job writer. Perhaps your personal happiness obstacles are somewhat more challenging than Gretchen's? This was a very quick, enjoyable read. Rubin first starts out by creating her ten commandments, principles she uses to guide her life, and the foundation of her 12 resolutions--one for each month.
What struck me was the value of writing down items, as that brings an additional level of commitment and a better way to track what's happening. If others were to undertake this project, it would look different for everyone. One of Rubin's guiding principles is, in fact, that what one person finds fun, or what makes one person happy, may not make another person happy.
This is an excellent point to keep in mind in life, and while reading the book.
