I’ve recently been reading a great book , called “The Happiness Project,” by Gretchen Rubin. The book and the happiness project blog have alot of great ideas for how to achieve happiness in modern times. What’s interesting to me, is the book hits upon many of the themes I’ve been writing about here in my Everyday Comforts blog, and it’s especially relevant with the current economic downturn. Within its very appeal, it underscores current cultural shifts and how people are thinking about what they need.
I didn’t know about the Happiness Project book or blog , when I started writing my own blog in January, 2009. Is this a case of cultural synchronicity at hand once again? Or is it just a coincidence that this book was recently on the New York times best seller list? Hmm, maybe I do have my finger on the pulse of cultural trends, after all! Or maybe I’m just like a lot of other people, seeking joie de vivre in everything I can!
