Your Mission

Your weekend mission,
should you choose to accept

1) Be yourself, everyone else is taken. - Oscar Wilde

2) Take pleasure in the successes of others rather than using their successes as a yardstick to measure your own life.

3) Nowadays blissful feelings seem to be in shorter supply than ever before. In fact, according to the United States General Social Survey, a national poll that gauges social trends, women in this country have reported being less happy each year since 1972, and we're currently at an all-time happiness low. One explanation: "There are so many opportunities available to women now, but with that comes a lot of pressure to be fully self-actualized--to have the amazing career and family, and the ability to balance it all with ease. So you constantly end up feeling disappointed because you're not as happy or successful as you think you should be," says Ariel Gore, author of Bluebird: Women and the New Psychology of Happiness.
