[Bookish Lifestyle] My Happiness Index

It’s no doubt that happiness is largely sought out in today’s society. From vices to self-help books everyone has their own opinions on how to be a more happier version of themselves.

In Juniper Lemon’s Happiness Index, the main character, Juniper, writes down things she’s happy about on a note card every day. She doesn’t just focus on the positives though, she also focuses on the negatives because without them, we would have nothing to define our happiness by.

I think this note card idea is a stellar one so I put it into practice for a solid month and have found that it’s an amazing tool that honestly makes me feel more content with my life overall.

So in celebration of my security in my happiness I present you with three stars and a wish for my blog.

(+) Even though I have been using this blog for a class assignment recently, I have thoroughly enjoyed writing and taking photos for my posts and I feel as though I have greatly improved as a writer since taking this on.

(+) It’s really centering to be able to have a place to keep all of my thoughts and witness my growth over time. It’s an amazing way to keep track of progress and learn more about myself as a journalist.

(+) There’s something incredibly vintage about blogging that I absolutely adore. It’s a small corner of the internet that I’ve carved out for myself apart from the fast paced microblogging of Twitter and Tumblr. To me, my blog is a breath of fresh air.

(-) I just wish my posting was more consistent and I had more interactions with my followers.

Drop a comment below about what you like about my blog and what improvements you think I should make.
