In 2009 I decided that I wanted to write a book. Not a complex or intellectual book, just a simple coffee table book that collated the best of what I’d learned about happiness and how to bring it into your life for good.
I traveled overseas for around 18 months beginning in 2002, and made my way around America, Canada, over to the UK, a little of Europe and home via Thailand. It was a beautiful trip and I feel like it was pivitol in growing into the person I am today. I remember being in Thailand and not wanting it to end, not wanting to come home to reality because I thought reality meant work, responsibility and boring monotous routine! Who’d want to come home to that!
When I came home I made a conscious effort to keep doing the things I really loved when I traveled. I met new people, tried new things, made plenty of time for friends, short trips and adventures. As I built my coaching business years later I came to think of happiness as a skill that anyone can learn, rather than something that’s innate in some people and missing in others. I designed the book around the key things that I believe develop the skill of happiness.
All up there are 42 concepts, each complemented by a beautiful picture (of my travels) and an inspiring quote. My favorite picture and quote are below, and if you’d like more of them head to the website, when you sign up for my newsletter you’ll get an E-Book with the top 10 concepts.
