I was browsing Twitter yesterday and I saw that Ashley from The Grits Blog had posted something about a 100 Happy Days Challenge that basically asked the question, could you be happy for 100 days?!? It got me thinking and I looked into it a bit more and decided to start the challenge! So every single day, I’m going to post (on my Instagram) one thing that makes me happy. The goal here is to allow yourself to see how much you have to be happy about. Here’s a little bit more about the program:
I’ve been noticing lately that I haven’t been as grateful for my life as I should be. There is a lot of personal issues involved in that, but it’s time for me to put my big girl pants on and really sit back and take a look at ALL that I DO HAVE in my life. So I thought doing this challenge would be a fantastic way of reminding myself, daily, that I have so much to be happy about. I’ll post one picture every single day on Instagram to show what makes me happy. You never know what I’m going to post, so it should be enjoyable and entertaining! Make sure you follow along! I’d also LOVE it if you guys participated! Everyone has time to post one picture a day (can be social media of choice) to show what made you happy. I’d like to have a little “Happy Support and Encouragement” Group. That way we can keep each other on track and celebrate all of the happy moments we have to share. Plus, I’ve got a couple other ideas up my sleeve that involve giveaways, letters of love and ways of paying-it-forward. If you join and sign up, let me know and I’ll make sure I’m following each of you and I’ll generate a list of “members” so we can all follow each other.
I’m genuinely excited to start this! I hope that I can realize after 100 days that I have a lot to be thankful and happy for. I hope that this is an eye opener for myself to not always concentrate on what I don’t have and to really concentrate on what I do have and be happy about it all! It’s not about showing off or showing what you have that others don’t. This is strictly for YOU! I’ll post all of the information below and where you can follow me to see what I’m happy about!
I couldn’t resist!!
