There is no duty we so much underrate as the duty of being Happy" Robert Louis Stevenson

Fun in the Sun!

The New Year has just begun and I find myself being surrounded with constant reminders to just 'embrace 'Happiness! It began on the first day of the New Year when a friend presented me with a book entitled "The Happiness Project"  by Gretchen Rubin. A book which follows a blogger and her year long quest of capturing happiness. My friend knowing my love of goal setting thought it would inspire my own Serendipity journey. (Little did she know she was in the very process of creating yet another challenge for me!)

The Happiness Project by Grechen Rubin 

Everywhere I have been this week I have been inundated with the adage "Relax...enjoy the moment, be happy"! And so my challenge this week has been exactly that. I have not allowed my 24 hour stomach bug, car problems, or worry over my teenage daughter's wanderings in Cambodia to consume me. Instead I have made every attempt to find happiness where ever I can find it! Simply in sharing a family movie together, enjoying a swim at the beach or taking the time to read a good book. Happiness is there in abundance in the midst of the daily grind you just have to embrace it! 

In true Serendipity style I discovered I was not alone in my embracing of happiness. Have a look how others are discovering happiness!
