Can you be happy for 100 days in a row?
That’s the challenge. A lot of people say they don’t have time. But I know I do. Sure, I have so many things to do, but I still manage to take ridiculous Buzzfeed quizzes to find out what Downton Abbey character I am most like (Violet Crawley, the Dowager Countess of Grantham) or read Huffington Post articles about procrastination (of all things!).
Today is my birthday and despite reckless disregard for my own health, this body has continued to support me for 53 years. That’s something to be happy about, right?
I’m a pretty happy person, overall. But I think I want to deliberately point out what’s going right in my life. What IS making me happy these days?
The Happiness Challenge asks that you post one picture every day, and choose the medium (Twitter, FB, Instagram, Tumblr, etc.) And, true-to-form, I immediately have questions:
– Won’t that bug my followers? Day after day for 100 days?
– What about when more than one thing makes me happy that day?
– What if I want to post it on my blog INSTEAD of those media?
– Yeah, I know… I always have to do it differently, right?
I’m going to post here. My own little world, with my own little rules. I can put more than one if I want. AND, I will link it to Twitter. SO, Brace Yourself for some HAPPINESS!!
In addition to dinner at the Monument Cafe in Georgetown and a movie with Ron, Alyssa, and Josh, I received wonderful texts and phone calls from Michael & Kathya, and Katie – plus tons of beautiful birthday wishes on Facebook.
And my favorite flowers from Alyssa and Josh:
