Happier at Home

I just finished reading Gretchen Rubin's latest book Happier at Home.  This is her follow up to her best selling novel The Happiness Project which I just loved.  This book has been on my must read list for quite some time but finally was able to dig right into it.  While reading Happier at Home, it made me revisit my own journey in pursuing my own happiness a few years ago, when I quit my day job to pursue art full time.  It was a big plunge for me and in the process made me realize how much I was pursing happiness was so important to me.  After having my daughter I realized that my happiness level expanded to something much bigger and larger then I ever expected.  What's funny I didn't realize it could get any bigger!

Happier at Home I felt was an expansion from her first novel.  The first novel was finding your happiness inside and this novel is about finding it on the outside. :) If you read the Happiness Project I highly recommend Happier at Home.

What are you reading lately?

This sounds really good to me Erika, I'm glad that it's helped you with your perspective and you feel like it's made you happier as well, that's awesome.

That sounds like such a good book. I haven't read many lately as my daughter keeps me busy and at night I'm busy with interneting, but I'm going to add this to the list. Thanks for the recommendation.
