My Happiness Project

2017 the year of the happiness project

2017 is the year of my Happiness Project. Inspired by Gretchen Rubin’s book The Happiness Project and a constant questioning of how happy am I? What does happiness look like for me? Teamed with a realisation that happiness isn’t just something that happens to us. It’s something we do have some control over. I am spending 12 months focusing on different areas of my life in an attempt to make myself as happy as I can be. You can read more about starting my happiness project here.

My Happiness Project commandments

I have created a set of commandments. These are the guidelines I want to live my life by this year. They are.

Invest wisely (time, money, resources)

Be yourself and know yourself


Do it now

One thing at a time


Acknowledge your limits and when to push them

Identify the problem, and if a solution isn’t forthcoming look at it from a different angle

Remember you are in control (of your schedule, your time, your actions)

Don’t try to do it all yourself. Find joy in the skills of others.

Have confidence

Trust the universe
