    In six words, what brings you happiness?


    Six-Word Memoirs is teaming up with Gretchen Rubin, author of the bestselling book, The Happiness Project, as well as the popular daily blog, to ask readers to share their “Secrets to Happiness”—in just six words. Gretchen writes about happiness and how to take manageable, concrete steps to become happier in everyday life, and her own six-word Secret to Happiness is “Accept myself; Expect more from myself.”

    Visit The Happiness Project, join the happiness discussion on the Facebook Page, and follow Gretchen Rubin on Twitter.
