I am doing the Happiness course by Gretchen Rubin. This is to help me reflect on my life and set new goals to increase my happiness and enjoyment. I have made a few changes this year. I try to meditate daily. I have stopped playing guitar daily. I am starting to share my journey on Instagram. I think this is making me partly happy and partly it is causing a craving to be seen. Maybe this is an inherent part of me. I think I have this wish to be seen even if I write to my friends or pen pals. I comment on other people’s posts on the Better App. This is the app used by Gretchen Rubin for her community.
I think Gretchen‘s approach to blogging about her journey to happiness is wonderful. I have been on a journey to understand who I am and what I am meant to do. One thing I have learnt from the Happiness Project course is that I like connecting with other people. So if you are reading these lines please let me know who you are in the comments below.
Recently the question has come up whether I should be aiming for online or offline connections. I really like connecting online. I like the simplicity of making friends without putting in a lot of time or effort. I get so much from my online friends.
