Regarding Day 17's post "The Pursuit Of ..." about Dr. Sonja Lyubomirsky's work: I reached out to Dr. Lyubomirsky just to make sure that I hadn't misrepresented any of her theories.
She was very kind getting back to me, but she did mention that just because unhappy people might be more analytical than happy folks, that didn't mean they were more intelligent.
So I apologize to all the happy people out there - and the unhappy ones, too, frankly. Who, as per the doctor's theories, probably enjoyed feeling smarter than everyone else for a while. ;) Sorry about that! I've made the change to the original post.
Again, Dr. Lyubomirsky's books are: The Myths of Happiness and The How of Happiness. Really looking forward to picking them up - and learning more about getting happier!
9 days left! We're into the single digits now. Wow!
Talk about getting happy ... :)
