Project Happiness vs. Project Gratitude

On a trip back from Oklahoma this year, I picked up a book called Project Happiness. I didn't quite finish it, but it was an interesting read for sure. It had a lot about organization skills, relationships, and practicing/finding your passions. I want to delve into something similar called Project Gratitude for myself. I will be renaming this project, but for now for the idea of it we will call it Project Gratitude. 

In the culture that I get caught up in, happiness equals more, more, more. More money, more clothes, more time off, more friends. I'm interested in what happens when we are not focusing so much on happiness, but when we focus on gratitude.

I'm going to start with one Thank you card a week. It will get to the other person via snail mail, in person, or a surprise location. I'm excited to see what happens, and I'm hoping that it will be paid forward. Happy weekend! I am thankful for you all!
