I’ve recently seen my facebook feed explode with people jumping on the 100 Days of Happiness bandwagon. I’ve often been accused of being grumpy or just plain miserable by my Darling Hubby and I think that I might just need a little daily reminder that there are happy moments for me everyday. It’s all about perspective. I find that the little things that bring me joy often get lost amongst the daily jumble of everyday chores and tasks.
My plan isn’t to join the 100 days website, instagram feed or even take a photograph every day, but to simply write down something each day that made me happy. It could be something big or something small, but I want to start seeing the joy in everyday. I may even occasionally share photos, but for now I’m just going to keep a list and post when I can (it won’t be everyday.)
I know I’m a couple days late, but I sort of unofficially started on Monday.
3/24 – Happiness is a new mattress with the hope of a good night’s sleep.
3/25 – Happiness is a skype session with a couple far away friends.
3/26 – Happiness is watching your usually shy 9 year old take the lead at his mini Lego Expo presentation at Math Night at school. (I have pictures, but haven’t uploaded or had time to edit them.)
3/27 – Happiness is watching a stupid movie with Darling Hubby after the kids go to bed.
3/28 – Happiness is commenting on a blog and winning a free knitting pattern and having a day free of tantrums and naughty behaviour from Fidget.
I actually noticed more than just one happy moment for each of those days and it was actually hard to pick just one. Hopefully I’ll continue this HAPPY trend!
