It's a simple question really. How happy are you?
Sometimes to answer that, we have to dig deep--really, really deep. We have to find the inner turmoil, regrets, and perhaps find answers we aren't looking for.
But maybe the key is keeping it simple, finding the little things in life that make us happy, or that at least put a smile on our faces, even if brief. Maybe if there are enough of the small things, it will slowly chip away at the imperfections.
So, I'm coming out of my blogging retirement because my college roommate posted a challenge to her Facebook wall: 100 Happy Days.
The key is for each day, to snap a picture of just one thing that chipped away at the sadness, that gave you a laugh or a joy, that helped forget the bad. It can be big or small.
Sometimes, it's hard to stop and smell the roses, even if we spent the hours in the garden ripping out the weeds. I think the key to this challenge for me, is to take a moment to appreciate things in my life.
So here I go. Starting tomorrow, I will post one thing each day that brings joy to my life, or something that happened that made me smile. It should be easy, right?
You should start too, and get your friends to do the same. Let's share our happiness. Here is the link: http://www.100happydays.com/#what
