September Book Group: The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin

Our second book group meeting was tonight and it was all about happiness. We had food, friends and wine and a little girl to play and laugh with. The hubby is out of town so Emma came to her first book group. :)
This months book: The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin

Thoughts about the book: 
Most of the gals found something to relate to in the book, be it with the thoughts and making your romantic relationships stronger and therefor happier or ideas on how to reduce stress while at work. These most resonated with the group. 
There was one other gal who agreed with me that the project didn't feel authentic, that it was done for the purpose of writing a book and not to actually increase her happiness in her life. 
It generated a lot of good discussions

Popular Question:
What activity would make you happy now that you loved as a ten year old?
This was something that a friend told Gretchen Rubin- what you loved as a 10 year old will make you happy to do now. It was funny, but me and one of my friends had the same activity in mind...coloring books. I love coloring books. One of my most favorite things in the world is a brand new box of 64 Crayola crayons. I need to go and find myself a coloring book!

How would you answer that question?

Next months book:
The Shining by Stephen King

  1. I was going to say coloring books too. I love coloring with William. The smell of a new box of crayons is the best.

  2. The smell is the best. The hubby thinks I am strange when he says me smelling my box of crayons. :)

  3. I would probably answer coloring, too. When I am bored I often consider doing so...


Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)
