There is a movement that is about 15 or 20 years old called “Positive psychology” which was made credible and brought to public attention by Dr. Martin Seligman, a former President of the American Psychological Association.
Yesterday, I was browsing in the aisle of my local independent bookstore, Liftbridge Books, in downtown Brockport, NY, where I saw this book in the self help section entitled, “What Happy People Know”. It immediately made me think of Seligman’s positive psychology, but when I picked it up and browsed in it, I was kind of disappointed because it seemed to have a lot of anecdotal kind of stuff which I can find in the Chicken Soup For The Soul series. I didn’t buy the book.
But I did decide to start my own series of articles on my web log addressing the same question “What Do Happy People Know?”
If you know something that makes you happy and it would be something that might be of use to others either enter it in the comment section of each article, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks and as Boby McFerrin sang, "Don't worry. Be happy!"
