I think most everyone will be able to relate to Gretchen Rubin's The Happiness Project, as it relates to finding more satisfaction in every day life. She describes her path to identifying what made her happy, finding the strength to include the things that make her happy in her life and keeping her resolution. Rubin's path can serve as an inspiration to others looking to make similar changes.
Rubin's "project" began when she realized that she was simply moving through life without concentrating on what truly made her happy. Her path to happiness was not haphazard and requires weeks of research, consulting philosophers and people she knew and admired for the way they lived. One of the things I enjoyed most in the book was Rubin's discussion on saving things for a later time, or for a rainy day - I'm sure everyone can associate with that! The reality is, most of these things never get used and is simply an unproductive habit.
All in all, a great and honest guide to finding happiness in your own life.
