I must be living under a rock. Or maybe I am just distracted watching Sons of Anarchy and Orange is the New Black. Perhaps work is too busy and the laundry is piled way too high. I have a husband, a tribe of children and a dog – and each of them needs my attention. Regardless, I am very surprised that I have not heard of 100 Happy Days (hashtag: #100HappyDays) until today.
In a nutshell, #100HappyDays challenges people to take a picture of one thing a day that makes them happy and share it through social media.
The program was launched late last year by a 27-year-old guy from Switzerland who embarked on his own challenge to stop and remember what makes him happy.
Great idea, young man. GREAT. IDEA.
I am, for the most part, a happy person. Of course, every day can’t be sunshine and rainbows… puppies and kittens…pizza and beer – you get the idea. But, there is always something to find happiness in each day. Maybe it’s holding hands with your significant other, the sound of a child laughing or even a really good meal. If nothing else, just try and be happy to….Just. Be.
I know I am wayyyyyy late hopping on this Happy Train and there are a lot of “naysayers” who think this idea is a big waste of time, but how can it be a waste of time if you are able to capture a bit of happiness in your day?
I’m doing it. Today is #Day1.
Say “cheese”…you might just part of my #100HappyDays (even YOU, naysayer)!
