Happiness Project - Week One!

So for the last few months I have really wanted to start my own Happiness Project.
I read "The Happiness Project" by Gretchen Rubin and really enjoyed it. Although I already live my life in what I feel is a very Happy & Positive way, I feel like there is always room for improvement.
Sometimes I have to stop and tell myself not to sweat the small stuff, or freak out and get frustrated at something so small and unimportant. I need to stop and smell the roses, Think Happy & Be Happy! I have sort of come up with my own concept as far as my Happiness Project. I am being realistic and not putting a time frame on this. I am going to do it as long as it feels right! There is no point in doing it if it doesn't make me Happy, right?
If you haven't read The Happiness Project I strongly suggest you give it a go. It really makes you think, and it's a very simple concept! I definitely learned a lot.

Ok, so I am starting small with week one so here we go.

Happiness Project // Week One

Contact ten friends that I've met abroad &/or haven't talked to in a long time. Either by Phone, Email, Mail, Facebook etc. See what is happening in their life and bring some Joy & Happiness by letting them know I am thinking of them & miss them!

Here I go. GET HAPPY!
