I’m working on my Happiness Project, and you could have one, too! Everyone’s project will look different, but it’s the rare person who can’t benefit. Join in -- no need to catch up, just jump in right now. Each Friday’s post will help you think about your own happiness project.
I'm leaving for vacation with my family today. I thought about trying to post here throughout next week -- I've often posted during a vacation -- but I decided, no. Given the technology these days, it’s tempting to have a change of scenery and call it a vacation. But a vacation really means taking a break from work.
Now, I won't completely take a break from work. My laptop is my beloved security blanket, and I would never leave it behind, and whenever I have my laptop, I usually end up writing something or other. I keep my one-sentence journal, I take notes constantly, I have to write down ideas or I forget them. But for me, that kind of work is actually play -- I'll do it if I feel like it, or not, if I don't.
I always feel the tug of work, but I really want to spend this time concentrating on my family. The days are long, but the years are short.
Do you ever find it hard to disengage, to take a real vacation?
Now I'm off to pack. I'll be back in a week.
* I love New York City, and I loved this eerie, beautiful short video that showed old New York.
I found out that The Happiness Project is #1 in Lithuania! (can't resist mentioning: also #1 New York Times bestseller).
