I’m sure you’ve heard of Elizabeth Gilbert’s “Eat, Pray, Love” and Gretchen Rubin’s “The Happiness Project”. Well, this is my version. As much as I would love it, this will not be a year away from school and work to travel the globe. Instead, I will be searching for happiness in my own backyard.
The title of this blog came from a line in a song called And Run by a band called He Is We who are one of my favourite groups right now (Check out the acoustic version of the song here! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVpUG4g7BYE). I chose this as the title for my blog because it encompasses several things that are important to me. First – breathing. Now I know breathing is important to everyone, but for me it means to stop and breath, to relax, and not to panic. This is something that as a full-time student/part-time worker I sometimes forget to do. The second part of the line – run – is important to me because I am a runner. Running helps me clear my head, it makes me feel better, and it’s helped me to meet some amazing people. Overall, the line is about just having the courage to go for it. That’s what this blog is – me trying to just go with what life brings and make myself a happier person for it.
