A Blogging Community Happiness Project

So, I'm reading this new book called The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin, and I'm really liking it so far (considering I've only read the first two chapters).

It's really kind of inspiring to read. Especially because... Who wouldn't benefit from being happier? This book isn't really designed for those who are depressed and entirely unhappy with their lives... its meant for those that have a lot to be greatful for, but could achieve so much more because they are just running through the motions of everything.

I think that in today's society, we're just so overloaded with all that we have going on in our lives, that its hard to really stop and appreciate everything. Our health is proof of that matter. How many people now-a-days have adrenal fatigue because their bodies are just exhausted from all the stress.

So here's what I propose...
A Blogging Community Happiness Project

How many of you would be interested in something like that? 

The author, Gretchen Rubin, came up with 12 resolutions (one for each month) that she felt would result in her being happier. We can do the same, and then every week, link up, and just talk about what we have done to achieve our goals. 

Each of our resolutions would be different. One of Gretchen's includes how to improve her life with her kids/family. I don't have kids yet, so that obviously wouldn't be one of mine. One of her's includes, her relationship with her husband, but not all of us have significant others. 

So basically, we come up with 12 resolutions, and then check in every week to talk about how our lives are improving and what we've done specifically to achieve our goals. This would give us advice for ourselves in our own goals, and offer some encouragement (although we shouldn't need encouragement for others!)

So how many of you would be interested in doing something like this? I haven't established my 12 resolutions yet, but I'm going to soon!
