When I first came across this project I saw online, I thought “I can do this” . What I didn’t realize about a month into it, is that 100 days is a long time. There are days I feel challanged. There are days (I’ll admit) that I don’t feel like posting. But what I realized is that it forces me to look at my own world in a way I never have. Truth be told, the winter was hard on me. The sun barely shined, the snow never stopped, and while I love my tiny corner of the world, it can get pretty bleak and lonely in the winter. I was depressed. I wanted very much to reach inside myself and start to appreciate the things that I know I take for granted. So I began this project. I think all we really want to be is happy. For me, it was a matter of starting off with the little things that I take for granted. Even on the saddest of days (which I have had) I force myself to find one thing to make me happy. No one wants to talk about their sadness out loud. No one wants to update their status feed with “Im depressed”. I have to admit, just a month in, it’s working. Also if you have not had a chance to watch this amazing documentary you really should! You can find it on Netflix. You can follow along on my journey on Instagram if you like. And if you are participating let me know your Instagram name, and I will follow, it’s never to late to start the challenge. for more on being grateful you can check out this post too.
“When we decide to be happy we accept the responsibility to bring happiness to someone else. Some decide that happiness and glee are the same thing, they are not. When we choose happiness we accept the responsibility to lighten the load of someone else and to be a light on the path to another who may be walking in darkness”.-Maya Angelou
