After a recommendation from a friend's utterly adorable blog (harleyandjane.com, check it out!) I began reading The Happiness Project, by Gretchen Rubin. This book details one woman's yearly endeavors at making her life simply happier. She chooses 1 area of her life each month and focuses her attention on making that aspect of her life happier. Rubin is an upfront sort of writer and doesn't mind sharing her own failures and short-comings, which makes for a pretty enjoyable and motivational read. After beginning my own happiness project in December I decided to make several more goals to help me throughout 2013. This is what I came up with:
10 Things I Want to do in 2013:
1- Do one thing every day that makes me happy.
2- Develop an art-making routine.
3- Create weekly menu plans, and cook 4 days per week.
4- Work on the blog.
5- Become a mother.
6- Learn to share my accomplishments with others.
7- Ask for help.
8- Be kind to everyone.
9- Create a peaceful and stress-free home routine for me and baby.
10- Don't worry about things you can't control.
