So I’ve seen a few people here and there hash tagging “#100HappyDays” with a photo of something that makes them happy. This morning I woke up feeling a little stuck and frustrated (again) and these unhappy thoughts got me thinking.
I need more happiness in my life. I need to choose happiness.
I feel like I haven’t been fulfilling my own happiness very much lately. I feel like I’m busy taking care of all the unfun stuff (chores, errands, grown up stuff, etc) and doing things to satisfy others happiness. I have forgotten to speak up for my own happiness.
I am hoping that this exercise will help me focus on my happiness and in return make the other people around me happy. Happiness is pretty infectious, ya know?
Here’s hoping I can keep it up! The website says 71% of people fail… not good odds. ha!

This is what first has me thinking about it: http://www.hlntv.com/article/2014/03/05/100-happy-days-photo-challenge
I officially start tomorrow (March 26, 2014) and if I decide to stop at 100 days (hopefully I’ll keep it up!) will be July 4th, 2014. What a perfect ending date. I love fireworks! I will be sharing my “happiness photos” via Instagram (username: @marialynnshaw), but I will also post them here to update myself. This will be hard at first, but I think once I get going, it will just be a wonderful routine. At least, I hope.
I’d really like to be part of the 29%… so wish me luck. 😉
