I've been reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin lately, and I've been really enjoying it. It's a book about a woman with a perfectly great life (happy marriage, job she loves, two great kids, no family drama, etc.) who didn't really feel like she was as happy as she could be, so she embarked on a year-long "happiness project" to try and make little changes to see if she could make herself feel happier and more fulfilled.
While the book doesn't make me want to necessarily start my own intensive happiness project, it has made me think and reflect on little changes I could make to improve my overall happiness or just things I could do to suddenly make my day a little better. A lot of those things involve finishing projects, or committing to things that sometimes seem like a chore but give a lot of satisfaction in the end.
With that in mind, one thing I want to start doing is have a regular posting schedule for my blog. I don't know how many people actually read it regularly but I know I have a few "fans" and one thing that makes me happy is writing and having people read and enjoy my writing, and I think forcing myself to commit to a certain number of posts a week will be a commitment that, for the most part, will make me happier. I've been trying to post more lately anyway and having a schedule to stick to will make it easier for me and also easier for those readers who don't use RSS feeds so just continually check the page for new posts.
From now on, unless I'm ridiculously busy or on an extended vacation, I should have a new post up every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. If something super exciting happens I might add in some extra posts every once in a while, but 3 posts/week is a schedule I can easily stick to.
And if you're looking for something else interesting to read in the meantime, I would totally recommend The Happiness Project! (I think there's a blog for it too but I'm too lazy to find it.)
