Self read Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project last year. It took her ages to finish, because she found herself poring over practically every page.
Last week, at the Huntington Gardens, she found a small blue journal in the gift shop. It’s a one-sentence journal, with months marked on the top of each page, and five spaces below, each space marked: 20__, 20__, 20___
Self began the journal on Sept. 11, she filled in the date 2014.
It’s now Sept. 15, and she’s managed to fill in NOTHING since then. But she might today, because she’s heading to Frasier Park, where a friend has a house.
There’s a quote on each page of the journal. Today, Sept. 15, the quote is:
One of the best ways to make yourself happy is to make other people happy. One of the best ways to make other people happy is to be happy yourself.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
