Can I? We are about to find out…

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.  😉
