  1. GO GIRL. One thing at a time, schedule it, make it happen…get ‘er done. Someone gave you that t-shirt cause you ARE a superhero. Checking the items off this list will only reinforce that for your own kids. It’s not selfish… it’s WIN-WIN.

  2. How far into the Happiness Project are you? I ask because reading it is actually on my Life List. Wondering if it was possible to read it as a virtual book club?
