“Imaginary good is boring; real good is alway new, marvelous, intoxicating.” – Simone Weil

It’s one of my new favoritest quotes. And when I first heard it (thanks to Gretchen Rubin of the book The Happiness Project), I knew I had to share.

Most of my life, I’ve been something of a goody-goody.

I know. Annoying, huh?

But the thing is–and I think I’ve probably done more than hint at this in this blog for a long time–I like being, more or less, good. Being mean usually ends up in one of three ways:

1. Embarassment (for being immature)

2. Guilt

3. Just plain messing things up.

And so. If there is just one tip that I’d like to give you, my readers, about getting happy, I’d almost have to say that this was it:

Be good.

Don’t be a judgmental goody-goody, of course.

But yeah. Be a good person.

You’ll be glad you did–almost every time.

(Of course, there was that time I really wanted to smash the car window of a guy who stood me up, and I almost regretted not doing it. What a great story that would’ve made … But those are the exceptions, you know?)


“This is the kind of writing that makes me feel as if I’d sat down with the author on the sofa with cups of tea and we were talking together for hours. The style is so vulnerable …” – Heather

“I don’t know what to say other than it is the most beautiful book that I have ever read.” – Ashley

“Really, I am rather speechless.” – Sarah

“I loved the book!! I couldn’t stop reading it!! It touched me so very much.” – Haydee

“Player has given a beautiful gift to her readers. I was very touched.” – Celia

“Player’s chatty style evokes a realism and empathy for the story. One is able to feel her pain.” – Anonymous
