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.
So, what did I discover about me and what makes me happy?
I have a definite preference for nerdy things, like crosswords.
and hot new releases
Also, I like food.
Lots of food.
Food makes me happy. Both stuff I make at home.
And stuff I get out of the house.
Oh, and beverages. Like coffee.
And (yum!) bubble – or in this case, since we’re in SoCal – Boba Tea
I also find great pleasure in astral phenomena, apparently.
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?
