The Happiness Project

Mental Health blog, focused on self-care and learning to love your life!

Hello, Internet!

As much as I hate to say this, it must happen. I am saying goodbye. I have absolutely loved this blog and all of the things it has taught me. It has truly been an adventure. But life is pretty busy right now. As you can see, my last post was back in February. My family has grown and I have taken on more hours and responsibility at work, so I simply do not have time to blog. Maybe one day in the future I can go back to it.

Thank you to all who have supported me, left me sweet comments, and encouraged me to give this a try. You guys are the MVPs!

Until next time,

The Library Lady (Andi)

Oh you thought you were never going to see another book review by me… right? Nope! You know that I love my book reviews. I figured I could indulge in my love of reviews by reviewing self-help books. I know, genius idea.

So here we are, ready for the first book review of 2021! As usual, this might have some spoilers, so if you don’t want to hear about those, skip down to the “Would I recommend this book?” Here’s all the details of this book:

Book Title: Wise as Fu*k: Simple Truths to Guide You Through the Sh*tstorms of Life
Author: Gary John Bishop
Main Theme: Self-Help

Happy Sunday folks! Hope you all had a great weekend, and I’m sorry if your pick for the Super Bowl didn’t go as planned…

My Covid test came back negative, but I was still sick for over a week. Blah, no fun! But I’m finally feeling better (as well as a 26 week pregnant lady can feel) and slowly getting back into my routine. You wouldn’t believe how many naps I took while out for the week. 😪

Only 13 more weeks until Miss Ava is here!

I’m revving up my engines to pump out some new blog posts this week. Yay! So keep on a look out for those. Also, is there any blog posts that YOU would be interested to read about? I’m all for suggestions! 🙂

Up next for my blog… a book review! You thought that I would actually completely stop my book reviews? No way! I love my books to much. It should be posted a couple of days after you see this blog post. Until then, stay happy folks! 💗

Happy Thursday!

Normally I would have a new blog post up for all of you to enjoy, but as of right now… I’m stuck in quarantine. 😷

I do not think I have Covid-19, but I have experienced some symptoms and my boss and I agreed that a Covid test and quarantining for the rest of the week would be a good idea. I am waiting for my results, which hopefully would be soon. In the mean time, I have experienced lots of sneezing, fatigue, and going through tissues like you wouldn’t believe, so I’m taking the rest of the week off from my blog and I hope to see you guys next week!

Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay happy my friends! ♡

What do you do when things just aren’t okay?

I would love to start this post out with something positive, like an uplifting quote or a cute saying like “Happy Friday!” But right now, that’s not what this post is about. Sometimes, things are rough, and no matter how much self-care or positive thinking you do, you are just not okay. And that’s what I want to talk about today.
