World Happy Day

This Saturday – February 11 – the world will celebrate the first ever World Happy Day. Central to the celebration is the screening of the movie: “Happy.” The goal for this day is that people all over the world will be inspired by the movie to begin to live happier, healthier lives. A link of the website shows locations for screening. There is one just two miles away for me. I hope you will find a place to view it, too. If you see it, please e-mail me with your review. This could be really fun. Take a look at the website for details on World Happy Day. http://www.worldhappyday.com

Another Book Signing

Gretchen Rubin was a member of the second “How to Write a Book the Slightly Off Way” workshop that Deb DiSandro and I taught. Last week, Gretchen traveled from New Mexico to Chicago on a book signing tour for her book A Good Goodbye: Funeral Plan for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die. Deb and I were pleased to attend her presentation and book signing. That makes three published books from our workshops so far and two more of our authors are shopping their manuscripts to agents and publishers.
If you have taken one of our workshops, we would love to hear where your book is now. If you are still working on it, that’s great. It takes as long as it takes. If you quit working on it, that’s OK, too. When you decide to work on it again, you will be starting a few steps closer to the finish line than when you first began.

Learning from the Audience
One of the best aspects of speaking to groups is the things I learn from those in the audience. After a recent Happiness Presentation a gentleman told me of visiting a 105-year-old lady named Bertha in a local nursing home. When asked about her happiest memories, Bertha declared that she was happiest during the five years between her two marriages.
