And To Be Thoughtfully Happy For 100 Days In A Row!#100happydays challenge. Intrigued, I read up and I instantly jumped on board (and a few other friends joined the challenge with me!).
Not to be epic, but sadness and disparity aren't good for my soul. I don't enjoy those emotions. I try my best to be upbeat and humorous. It's just as easy to miserable, but far less healthy. #100happydays was, initially, strictly an opportunity to simply notice blessings... but along the way, believe it or not, I slowly started to feel better too. And it's not that I'm giving this challenge 100% of the credit for my emotional recovery. But, I did need to start noticing my blessings and what things, grand and small, that truly make me happy. So, every single day for 100 days I posted a picture or two of what makes me happy... And it turns out that between that and my daily gratitude journal, I am able to recognize and appreciate happiness again. Since, I have decided to shoot for 365 days of happiness... A full year of thoughtful attention to my greatest personal resource! Here are a few highlights of happiness (in an no particular order b/c of editing challenges!):
|Day 11.2 | Dinner! So fresh & so clean, clean!|
|Day 5.2 | Seeing her nose and ears flying in the wind,|
driving in the country... Pure happiness!
|Day 5.3 | Sunsets make me happy, and nostalgic!|
|Day 15 | Nature!|
|Day 14 | Gratitude & happiness are interchangeable|
for these two! Literally, the two halves of my heart!
|Day 26 | Spring break means sleeping in, furry|
snuggles, Red Box movies in bed while
scrapbooking (subject: Penny) and coffee
throughout the morning! Alllll kinds of happy
23 | Playing Easter bunny & delivering 500 |
eggs to the Children's Home that my students stuffed
with love & joy!! My heart is full!

My lucky, happy day!!
