Alice Reads: My Twelve Commandments

Last year, I finished reading and digesting Gretchen Rubin's book, THE HAPPINESS PROJECT. It was one of the best books I've read in 2012. If you're curious about my decision to embark on a happiness project, please read this post I wrote in February last year. I'm about to embark on the next one, 21 Day Relationship Challenge, in conjunction with the author's second and latest book, HAPPIER AT HOME.

Now, My Twelve Commandments is something that I've been putting off doing until now. I was supposed to begin the project by getting the said list in order, but I always do things the unconventional way; you can also call me a procrastinator. The brand new 2013—one year later, that's now—provides a brilliant excuse and opportunity for me to revisit this important exercise. So, here it is, a colorful, graphical list I created just moments ago...

If you are wondering what this Twelve Commandments is all about, they are "the overarching principles by which I try to live my life" (I'm quoting Gretchen directly). If you already have your own list, I'd love to see yours!
