If you’re on any kind of social media, chances are you’ve been seeing the hashtag #100happydays (or one of its variants) over and over. I ignored it for the first several weeks, for no other reason than the fact that I’m stubborn, and have a tendency to dig in my virtual heels at the first sign of new things coming through my feed. “Lalalalala, I can’t hear you. No, I do NOT want to join in on your challenge/group/club/whatever-sort-of-100-somethings-in-100-days that you’re promoting.”
It’s clearly one of my best qualities.
Anyway, as is usually the case, I got over myself and went and looked at the link. I’m so glad I did! I’ve done projects like this before (in its simplest form, finding and acknowledging something – large or small – that makes you happy every day for 100 days), but never through pictures. It’s been so amazing! I’m not even 30 days in, and I’m finding that the hardest part is just narrowing it down to which happy thing I’m going to share.
My days are full of happy…. even the not-so-great days. And focusing on the happy moments likewise makes me see more happy moments.
If you’ve been having trouble finding your happy, give it a try. You can start any time.
Here are just a few of my pictures from the past month. I can’t wait to see what I’m going to add over the next 70 something days.
And the happiness goes on….
