Friends,
 

My blog-iversary cheesecake! I drove from Toronto to Buffalo for this beauty last night. #Mondaysareawesome!

          Yesterday was my one-year blog-iversary. On July 7, 2013, I launched The Happiness Experiment with the post What would you do if you weren’t afraid? I was terrified to expose myself by exposing my blog. Sucking up my fear in favour of introducing myself to my world, I quickly uncovered the benefit of doing what scares me: becoming unafraid. As you rid yourself of your fears – fear of what-ifs, fear of failure, fear of criticism – you free yourself to be happy. Combine happiness with courage, and you will understand what it means to live, because you will do so without the illusion of limitation. By striping me of my fears, this blog gave me the shameless boldness to live happily. Whether you’ve absorbed every word I’ve written or you’re reading my mind for the first time, thank you for contributing to the decay of my fears by taking an interest in my story.

 
Lots of love,

Maria
