5 Things You Think Will Make You Happy (But Won't)

This is a pretty fun article, reminding us about why the things we think would make us happy really wouldn't. Fame, wealth, beauty, genius, and power. They also refer to a more serious article from Time, describing a study done on the things that really do make us happy. None of it is surprising, but it's good to remind ourselves about the important things in life. They also include some of the things that people can do to boost their own happiness, such as keeping a gratitude journal (a diary - or blog, perhaps - of things you're grateful for) and performing acts of kindness. Give it a read, and be happy.
