The Happiness Project

I was watching some daytime television today and there was an author being featured that I felt had some really important things to say. She launched a Happiness project for herself a few years ago that involved being more mindful of the positive things in her life, making time for play, and connecting with people that she really cares about. There is so much more to it, but I wanted to post a link to the site here. So check out the Happiness Project and let me know what you think! Are YOU up for the challenge?
