One of the common themes you find in happiness research is the link between happiness and passion. To be happy we need to engage in activities that we are passionate about. If you Google ‘passion and happiness’ the first link is to Gretchen Rubin's blog. I am a fan of Gretchen’s work and have responded to the offer on her website to receive her comic that outlines her “Quest for Passion”. You see, Gretchen was worried that she didn’t know what she was passionate about, but on her quest she realized that she had always known; she was passionate about books. She loves reading them, writing them, creating them, taking notes about them, and talking about them. To say that resonated with me was an understatement! I love books. Reading has always been my passion and most of my books are filled with Post-It notes! I become most alive when talking about books. I have a hard time conversing with a friend without talking about books.
I have always wanted to blog about books, but I really didn’t know from what angle. But with some wisdom from Skye, I figured it out. Starting today, one of the things I am going to blog about is books. I am not going to review books; I am going to tell you about the many books that have changed my life and how they changed it. I will give links to buy the book – not because that benefits me, but because you might be interested. And where I can, I will link to free chapters so you can read those to see if you like the book. And now all I have to do is figure out where to start!!!
