Despite nearly pulling out when someone told me it was based on that song* by Pharrell, I’m now a quarter of the way through my #100happydays challenge.
And honestly? It’s working!
I actually do feel so much more positive. Even on days when I’ve felt pretty crappy, I’ve been on the lookout for things that make me smile –and it turns out there are a lot! Some days I find myself tossing up over which happy thing to post. When there are enough happy things and you don’t know which part makes you happiest, that can only mean life is pretty great.
Other things I noticed:
- My Instagram profile isn’t as pretty as it was. Turns out the things that make me happy aren’t necessarily easy to make beautiful with a Samsung S3 and Valencia – e.g. the Turnitin Receipt from an assignment I hated. Stupidly this makes me a bit self-conscious – ridiculous right?
- It can be very tempting to make every post an image of food or drink, but I think I’ve done alright in keeping the balance so far!
