Of course, it is a New York Times bestseller so when there was first a buzz around the internet, I made a mental note of it.
I started following Gretchen's blog a good few months ago and when I got my Kindle, hers was the first book I bought :)
I requested her paradox card since I'd bought an e-version of the book and I was delighted when I got it at work, all the way from New York.
Back to my expectations...
Some of you know I've not been my usual happy self.
This year has been hard for me, especially with the business and some relationship stuff.
I'm trusting in God and I know He will see me through but as is always the case when I'm in a valley, it's really hard to see the end from here.
So I thought I needed some happiness to keep me focussed while I'm being faithful with the other stuff.
My expectations will have been met if:
- I have about 5 different things to blog about (hey, I'm being honest)
- I have a couple of insights or aha moments that can help me reframe things in my life
- I get to know Gretchen better (I do love when I read an author's blog and "get" them)
- I increase my happiness quotient
So far so good.
What about you?
