Insta-Challenge: #100happydays, the Conclusion

Way back in September, I wrote about a challenge on Instagram that I was participating in

If you need a refresher, it was basically a project whereby I would post a picture a day of something that made me happy – subject matter going from big to small things, but 100 things that made me happy. The idea was to gain appreciation for all the little things in life that I looked forward to, so that I would be a generally happier person day-to-day. 

Things like walking on the beach and such. 

When "let's walk downtown for coffee" turns into this… Day 51 #100happydays

So, what did I discover about me and what makes me happy?

Well…

I have a definite preference for nerdy things, like crosswords.

And of course, I ended if off fabulously. 

It’s good to be reminded of all the little things in life that make me happy. It’s good to be appreciative of all I have in life, and to remind myself that I have it really good. I always try to remain grateful for the things in life I have been allowed, the things I have earned and the things that have been happy accidents. All in all, I liked this challenge – I have  1oo days worth of pictures – a treasure trove of happy little memories to troll over when I feel sad or defeated – to remind me that bad things never last and that I can be a helluva lucky girl. 

Would you do the #100happydaays challenge?
