My husband gave me the book, Happier by Tal Ben-Shahar which I'd asked for after seeing Ben-Shahar speak on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. It's based on a positive psychology class that Ben-Shahar teaches at Harvard. It's the most popular class at the university.
I just started it this morning, but am enjoying it so far. The point that has stood out the most is this:
"Attaining lasting happiness requires that we enjoy the journey on our way toward a destination we deem valuable. Happiness is not about making it to the peak of the mountain nor is it about climbing aimlessly around the mountain; happiness is the experience of climbing toward the peak."Posting on Have Fun * Do Good has definitely brought me a lot of happiness. A big thanks to all of you for reading.
