Lauren’s 2015 Happiness Project

Here it is—my 2015 Happiness Project! I’ve assigned one focus area to each month. I’ve assigned some mini-goals to them, but they’re definitely open to change as the month grows closer and I figure out what makes me happy.

I am a pretty happy person as it is. Really, this journey is more about being grateful for what I have, living simpler, living in the now, and creating and following my vision. Vision as in what I want to do with my life, not something that, I don’t know, came in a dream or something. Figured I should clear that up as I read a lot of fantasy, so I don’t want you all worrying about me ūüôā
