pieces and parts

I'm reading The Happiness Project and stumbled upon on this post yesterday regarding assigning yourself a  symbol for you, for your life and for your own happiness project. 
Obviously my symbol is a bird. My sister would call it a sparrow, but to me a bird is a bird. I don't differentiate because the specifics aren't what attract me to it. The symbolism of a bird means so much more and is something I've come across in many different forms; through literature, poetry, art and in my own life. 
I suppose the actual symbol itself would look like the tattoo on my wrist...I already drew it onto the first page of the journal I've started keeping while I read. Either way, I'm excited to begin this book and project for myself this year! It's probably the only "new years resolution" (i hate that phrase) I consciously thought about. In it's simplest form, it's a way for me to be more active in my life every day in a positive and more meaningful way. 

Have you guys read this book? What are your thoughts? So far I'm enjoying it....


P.S. My top is from Forever21, just in case you were curious....I'm kind of in love with it.
