Trying To Be “Happier At Home”

As I wrote earlier this week, my car died on the side of the road.  Not just died…engine seized.

While I take the time to shop for a new car that leaves my wife and I sharing a car.  Since I work early in the morning and she works late into the night, it means that I will be spending my evenings at home and without transportation.

Now, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing.   If you have been reading you know me as someone who is constantly on the go.  Seeking out and trying new things.   I think I’m due to take a real break.  And there is no better time to take it as the winter dumps snow on the Northeast.

While I don’t intend to be without a car for long, nor do I intend to become a shut in…I did invest in all those winter accessories after all.  But I do think its time to try to be “Happier at Home”.

I put that in quotation marks because on my reading list is a book called “Happier at Home” and it is written by our Happiness project inspiration, Gretchen Rubin.

The book is about how a few years after the original Happiness Project she wanted to focus on bringing more happiness solely into her own home.  So she created a mini-happiness project spanning one school year , Sept through June.

Maybe its time  for me to binge watch Netflix, cook at home, read to the boys, and work on the dreaded.   “honey do” list at least for a little while.

I was near the end of 2016 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
