Re-Evaluate Your Mantras.

2011 Happiness Challenge: For those of you following the 2011 Happiness Project Challenge, to make 2011 a happier year -- and even if you haven’t officially signed up for the challenge -- welcome! This month’s theme is Time. Last week’s resolution was to Set aside a specific time for something that's important to you. Did you try that resolution? Did it boost your happiness?

This week’s resolution is to Re-evaluate your mantras. (Here, I'm specifically talking about time-related mantras, but re-evaluating all your mantras is also a good idea.)
