I’m currently Reading Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project (review to come). In it, she talks about her year of finding happiness through various tasks for herself. One of these tasks is to remember birthdays. Here is what she has to say:
“Many of my friends were on Facebook, which tracks birthdays, but many weren’t, so I had to send out a bunch of emails to ask for birthdays. While I was at it, I decided to update my entire address book and copy the information onto my computer. For years, I’d been adding and crossing out entries in the pages of my Filofax, which were now practically illegible and dangerously irreplaceable.”
I am enjoying this book so much. It’s full of tidbits and information that I can use towards my own happiness project (a post regarding this will be forthcoming). But of course, reading this passage is enough to make me happy for an entire week. I’d love to hear more about she uses it.
