“Happiness is a direction, not a place.” – Sydney J. Harris

I do like this one, and it can have so many meanings, my first thought was that the process of doing something makes me happy – training for a marathon, doing all the runs in the early dark mornings in the wind and rain, not the finish line. That is when it is all over. I am happy knowing that I am heading in the direction I have chosen. What does it mean to you?

Looking back at my journal from day 19, I did start to get a bit preachy and wrote a lot about fad diets, the ones I had tried and failed with. I will not go into detail, but I did write down:

“Progress, not perfection”.

And if we achieve that, then great. Aim for perfection but be happy with progress, knowing that we are heading in our chosen direction.
