A new month means a new book to giveaway!! I’ve never really read any self-help books before but since I’m on the road to a more organized and productive self, I picked up a copy of The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin!
This was my Christmas gift to my grandmother who is kind of a cranky woman. Haha! I know she loves her family but outwardly she can be a bit short-tempered. She told me that she enjoyed the book very much and I get texts from her every other day about random stuff. She sent me ox tail soup when I was sick, and a book about marriage! So sweet! I am hoping the book helped her become a happier person!
The author talks about how she is supposed to be happy since she has a great husband and 2 beautiful daughters. Instead, she tends to focus on negative things and keeps nagging her husband. I’ve asked Jim to read the book as well because he is the type of guy to think the grass is greener on the other side. He tends to dwell on missed opportunities and blames himself for things beyond his control. I also got him a one-sentence journal so he can keep a record and appreciate his beautiful life!
The book has sold over a million copies worldwide but has an average rating of 3.5/5 stars. People seem to find Rubin annoying and I can see why. It’s a very #FirstWorldProblems kind of book but I am a bit guilty of sharing some traits with the author. I can be a know-it-all, a nag, and a perfectionist. I sure hope this helps me address my annoying habits!
I’m giving away 3 bundles of The Happiness Project and the One-Sentence Journal!
Winners will be contacted personally via e-mail (the one used to sign in on Facebook) and they can claim the books within 30 days of ontification at Fully Booked Bonifacio High Street!
