Description

Gretchen Rubin is HAPPIER, and she wants you to be happier too. The #1 bestselling author of The Happiness Project and Better Than Before gets more personal than ever as she brings her practical, manageable advice about happiness and good habits to this lively, thought-provoking podcast. Gretchen’s cohost and guinea pig is her younger sister, Elizabeth Craft, a TV writer and producer living in Los Angeles, who (lovingly) refers to Gretchen as her happiness bully. Part of the Cadence13 Network.

I just used the Legacy Box coupon-thanks so much! I have 18 VCR tapes of my twins-who are 33 now LOL. I wanted to convert this stuff FOR-EVER, but that coupon made it more affordable for me to do so ! I have a short list of things I need to do but are involved ( converting VCR tapes being one) Now I can check this off my to-do list! Thanks again! again. )

I have a solution for the Christmas gift box. Use the tools that are available to you- in this case am electronic calendar. I keep an event in my phone for November 15th that includes anything I need to do around Christmas time but don't want to think about until then. This has made gift buying so much easier because anytime I think of something that a family member might enjoy I add it to the event for future reference. No more last minute scramble to find gifts that are sub par!

It's not right feeling guilty for eating what you felt like, especially after taking a nice walk! what's a demerit is feeling guilty for eating, which might lead or encourage eating disorders

I believe there is a similar version of this story of Picasso sitting in a cafe where 2 ladies ask to buy the napkin that he is drawing on. He quotes a huge amount and the ladies are shocked. and Picasso responds that I have been at it for over 30 / 60 years.

I would include a brief medical history, any surgeries etc. I would also include any burial paperwork. Any car titles might be helpful too. lastely, if you are putting original documents in this binder, put it in a fire box for sure!

Absolutely loved your daughter, you and your sister all together. Made me nostalgic for the days my grandma, my mom, my sister and me were all in the same room.. #amazingmoments.. we all live in different states now and my grandmother passed away a couple months before my seven years old daughter was born... so thank you for the blast from the past memories!!!
