2012 Happiness Challenge: For those of you following the 2012 Happiness Project Challenge, to make 2012 a happier year -- and even if you haven't officially signed up for the challenge -- welcome! Each week, I post a video about some Pigeon of Discontent raised by a reader. Because, as much as we try to find the Bluebird of Happiness, we're also plagued by the Pigeons of Discontent.
My friend Maria poses this week's Pigeon of Discontent, suggested by a reader: "Fun gets pushed to the bottom of my to-do list."
Did you notice my "bluebird of happiness" T-short? My sister gave it to me for Christmas. I hope you enjoy the new format. It's still evolving, so bear with me while it's taking shape.
You can post your own Pigeon of Discontent at any time; also, from time to time, I'll make a special call for suggestions.
If you're new, jump in right now, sign up here. Studies suggest that by taking action, like signing up for this challenge, will help you keep your resolutions. For the 2012 Challenge, each week I'll post a video for you to consider, and you can check out the archives of videos here.
