#100HappyDays - A 1 Week Reflection
I’m not sure who reads this other than my besties, but I wanted to put out into the world my thoughts about the 100 Happy Days Challenge.
I’ve been struggling a lot with the perception of my life and focusing a lot on the more … well, I’ll say less glamorous aspects. I have SO MANY positives in my life that I knew I had to do something or the good things would eventually go away.
I heard about this Challenge a few weeks ago from the popular hash tag. I took time to consider doing it, pros and cons and everything in between. I was turned off because it seemed like a trend that people were just jumping on. I was interested in doing it because it I felt like the purpose of the Challenge would help me climb out of the rut I’ve been stuck in. Then I was turned off again because I didn’t want to appear to be seeking attention, looking for hearts on Instagram for validation that other people think I am happy. Then that made me think, well, I could do it privately but the social aspect might keep me committed through all 100 days …
So long story short I jumped on the bandwagon. I decided to keep my Challenge public for accountability as I have a habit of not finishing things that I start. And I decided to just do the challenge because I wanted to start and finish something, to focus on being happier and noticing the good things in my days. Our time on Earth is so limited, I didn’t want to waste any more days feeling sad or stuck or unhappy.
I think the Challenge has boosted my happiness, or at least I want to think that it has! More pictures to come and probably some words too.
Cheers to happiness!
