Great Summer Read!!!

Great Summer Read!!!

Are you like me? finding yourself at a crossroad in life, where you feel as if you have been just existing rather than living and enjoying life? If you answered yes then I’m not alone..lol..

On my journey to re-invent my self and make me happier instead of all the people around me. I found this great book called, The Happiness Project, written by Gretchen Rubin.

In this book Gretchen has an epiphany one rainy afternoon where she realizes “Time is passing, and I’m not focusing enough on the things that really matter”… And in that moment she decided to dedicate a year of her life to her happiness project.

I really love this book, it helped me a great deal on my journey. I hope it can help someone else…
