Teaser Tuesdays (Dec.6)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

 
My Teasers:

“What people think makes them happy (moving to sunny California, getting a promotion, taking a trip to Disneyland) does not. In fact, the happiest people are those who have stopped chasing happiness and instead search for meaningfulness, a change in direction that leads to more sustainable happiness — the kind that enriches their lives, provides purpose, and creates impact…”

~ p.xv,The Dragonfly Effect” by Jennifer Aaker & Andy Smith

  1. Your book selection reminds me of “The Happiness Project” which I have in December reading stack. I’m discussing Diana Gabaldon’s newest novel, “The Scottish Prisoner”. <a href=http://summitmusings.blogspot.com/2011/12/teaser-tuesday-scottish-prisoner-by.html

  2. It’s so true. People are happiest when they embrace what they already have instead of chasing after some idealistic dream. That’s not to say that people shouldn’t have dreams or goals, they just shouldn’t let the pursuit of those affect their current state of contentment. Thanks for sharing. If you get a chance, my teaser is here.

  3. Love that quote because it’s so true. So many people worry about making as much money as possible. Money’s nice, but it isn’t really all that fulfilling (and I am a person who was extremely underemployed for most of my 20’s and 30’s. I think it works out better to do something that makes you happy and brings meaning into your life – once you’ve got all that, the money follows (as I have seen in my 40’s). Thanks for sharing!

    This is my quote for the day.

    Happy Tuesday all and sundry!
