I just heard about the 100 Happy Days Challenge this weekend, and I am in love. I'm busy. Everyone is busy. Some days are sunny and glorious, and some days you just want to bury your face in a pillow. But there is always something to be grateful for and happy about. It's easy to autopilot through our days without taking the time out to really appreciate the small things that make our lives really wonderful. Enter the 100 Happy Days Challenge! You can read about it here, but pretty much, for 100 days, you document through photos one thing that makes you happy everyday. Pretty simple, right? And I am all over Instagram as it is, so this challenge will give a purpose to my (pretty regular) overgramming. :)
I've been wanting to start a gratitude journal for some time, but the idea of journaling feels very time-intensive, and like it would just be another line on my to do list each day. But a photo a day when I already take 100? That I can do. I want to make a point, every single day, to enjoy the moment, and remember to be thankful for not only the big things, but the little things in my life too.
So, who's in? All you have to do is register on 100happydays.com, and you can use the hashtag #100happydays, or you can post your pictures to Facebook or Twitter, or you can email your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org.
