Last summer, I participated in that 100 Happy Days project/challenge. With moving across the country and other things that were happening, I was in a very stressful place. I hoped the project would help me remember to focus on the positive on a daily basis. While it was difficult at times to find something happy every single day, I did follow through all one hundred days, and I love the spread of photos that came from my project. Looking back through them is like seeing a slideshow snapshot of part of my life.
At present, I am still going through some very tough times that I will not go into publicly. A few of you know the stresses I’m under and have been amazingly supportive, and I appreciate you all so very much. I also have another major change coming up in my life in just a few months. On top of that, I’ve been working hard to try to change my outlook from survival mode to one that’s a bit more optimistic. This is very, very hard for me – I’m kind of a pessimist by nature – but I also feel it’s important.
So I’ve decided to take the 100 Happy Days challenge a second time, this time going from tomorrow, March 23rd, through the end of June. I’m not officially signing up with the website this time, but keeping this more of a casual thing, though I do plan to try to post diligently every day. My photos will be kept on Instagram, just like last time. I may or may not come back and report in once a quarter or so on some of my favorite moments and photos from that quarter. Either way, I hope to have another wonderful slideshow snapshot of my life to look back on by the time the hundredth photo is taken.
