The Happy Life Manifesto!

Today I’d like to share with you my very first e-book. Calling it an e-book might be a little generous, because it’s less than 20 pages long, but it’s a mini book I’m distributing electronically, so e-book it is!

This mini book/manifesto is a collection of my favourite quotes, thoughts, and ruminations on happiness. I (obviously) still have a lot to learn about being happy, so this is not meant to be a “step-by-step guide” from an expert’s perspective. I’m nowhere near an expert! I simply wanted to share the lessons I’ve learned and epiphanies I’ve had that have slowly taken me from sad to glad. Think of this book like a conversation with someone who cares: I’m trying to share in the hopes that what has helped me on my journey may be able to help you in some small way.

You can get a free copy of The Happy Life Manifesto by joining my monthly newsletter here! The download link will be sent your way as soon as you enter your email. Thanks, as always, for your support!


I mention a few people/ideas in my little bibliography. I want to give them their due here.

  1. Gretchen Rubin
  2. Tara Whitney
  3. Marie Forleo


As always, thanks for your support. I am really proud of this project, as well as the podcast that I recently started. But I’m not sure I would have been confident enough to pursue either one if not for the love and support of my family, friends, and all the wonderful readers that stop by here and leave great comments. Thank you!

Please leave comments on the book here, or email me! I’d love to hear your feedback. Thanks for reading.

  1. Congratulations on releasing your first e-book! I hope it’s the first of many. I’m actually a bit wary of pursuing happiness directly. Personally I’ve found that whenever I’ve sought to be happy I’ve actually ended up reducing (or at least not improving) my happiness. Nowadays I try to focus on something else of value — my education, my reading and writing, being with friends and family — and not think about being happiness in and of itself.

    I think it’s important to define and realize what the purpose and meaning of happiness is, especially since it’s a purpose and meaning that we assign to it (and can therefore control and re-assign).

    1. Hi Shrutarshi! Thanks for the congrats, I’m quite proud of it. Your comment made me think, because I think you make a very valid point. I don’t believe in quick-fixes or bandaid happiness (if there is such a thing) is the way to go about it. But looking back over my book, I realize that everything I wrote is about changing your perspective on something. And I think the idea of thinking about happiness in a different way can definitely be a key to unlocking more of it – at least, it has for me! I agree 100% though, that thinking about happiness too much will diminish it, and that focusing on other things of value is important. Thanks for your input! I really appreciate it.
