“Negative emotions like loneliness, envy, and guilt have an important role to play in a happy life; they’re big, flashing signs that something needs to change." – Gretchen Rubin, from The Happiness Project“Negative emotions like loneliness, envy, and guilt have an important role to play in a happy life; they’re big, flashing signs that something needs to change.”
– Gretchen Rubin, from The Happiness Project blog

I’m terrible at seeing things this way, but I like the sound of it. How about you? Do you let feelings like envy or guilt motivate you, or do you find yourself getting too caught up in them?

Author of The Happiness Project and Happier at Home (both highly recommended), Rubin is one of my favorite non-fiction writers. For more from her on this subject, check out this short video.
