The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin

Quoting from the book – “There is only love”.

This line and the idea seem so simple. However, if you delve deeper into its meaning, it helps you to realize the significance of positive thinking or affirmations. In the book, the author shares an example of a workplace where the employees dreaded to work with a “notoriously difficult person” – the boss – except the author’s friend. She would just use one simple mantra – There is only love.  She worked with him without any hitches or any complaints.

If we can apply this mantra in any relationship, happiness is something we get in return.

The discussion on the book is not yet over. Until now, I did come across many such insightful statements which forces me to reflect on my life too. I am sure there is more to come.

As part of my happiness project, I have committed to spend at least 15 minutes a day on writing something worth reading 🙂 I have been wanting to write something good from a long period of time but I would not work diligently towards it. If I want to see my name in print, I need to work for the same. I need to do what makes me ‘happy’.
