Why I Started and Where I Ended Up.

There I was many reasons I felt compelled to start my own happiness project at the end of 2016.

For those that have joined recently, simply put, the happiness project was a years worth of resolutions geared towards making myself(and the other’s around me) happier.

Back to the reasons,  I think the biggest reason for my unhappiness was not having a clear direction to where I wanted to go and how I was gonna get there.

I had so many ideas and dreams but no clear way to execute or achieve them.

That’s one thing that my resolutions and travels helped me to achieve this year.  I took the time to learn about myself.  What works and what doesn’t.

As I look off into the distance and into the year 2018 ahead I know that this is the direction I’m going.  Is it the right one?  Who knows?  But that’s the way I am going to go.

What is that direction?

  1.  Make an impact on the community, outside the 4 walls of my work.
  2.   Find Happiness within the 4 walls of my home.
  3.   Explore, Discover, and Learn new things in my community, work, and leisure.
  4.   Set short-term and long-term goals, write them down, and work everyday to achieve them.


Said it before and I will say it again.  2017 was great but here’s to an amazing 2018

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.
