I’ve started a new feature — the True Rules series. These aren’t general rules for living, like “Enjoy the present.” They’re concrete lessons that come out of people’s specific experiences. And they’re useful!
Today’s True Rule was provided by my wonderful, lovely friend Katie. She’s a devoted mother, but points out –
(If you can’t watch the video, Katie’s True Rule is: “I love my one-year-old son, but everyone lies about how happy they are for the first three months after giving birth!”)
If you’ve got a little time to spare, and want to check out an oddly fascinating site, got to This Is Sand. If you can’t figure out how to get started, here’s a hint: just click.
Interested in starting your own Happiness Project? If you’d like to take a look at my Resolutions Chart, for inspiration, just email me at grubin, then the “at” sign, then gretchenrubin dot com. No need to write anything more than “Resolutions Chart” in the subject line.
