For book-club this month we read The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin.
Let me start by saying that I really had no interest in reading this book. I don't care for stunt books and find them not genuine or insincere. I didn't enjoy the book, nor did I hate it. She did get me thinking about one topic though. What are you passionate about?
Well let's see, I'm passionate about glitter, and about pumpkin bread and cake and cookies and I think I am going to try to make pumpkin fudge this week. I am passionate about Starbucks black iced tea, no sweetener, no added water.
But I don't think that was what Rubin was getting at. She said if you want to discover what you're passionate about just look around you.
I'm looking.... Ok based on this I am passionate about dirty laundry, unopened bills, dirty dishes, and disorganized craft supplies.
Maybe I should go look in another room.
I don't know but for me I don't going around trying to define everything. I enjoy the simple pleasures of a giggle from one of my kids, a wet kiss from my puppy, a load of clean laundry from my husband, a nap in the middle of the day and a good book to read at night.
What makes you happy? Do you think it should be defined or measured or even checked off on a flow chart? Leave me a comment and let me know.
HAVE A HAPPY DAY!
