Recently I have seen a few people participating in 100 day challenges. Mostly it’s been on Facebook. I think my Aunt is doing 100 days of happy. I have stumbled across 100 days of thankfulness, 100 days of gratitude as well as a few others that I can’t recall the specifics of at this moment. At any rate I have been thinking about this and have come to the startling realization that participating in something like this isn’t a bad idea, in fact it actually is a pretty good one.
I had to ask myself ‘why?’ as I am one who generally shrugs these things off. I ignore them and label them as ‘eyeroll’ worthy. Well after a brilliant start to the new year, I found myself wallowing. I got sick, again… and felt very down, and then noticed my thoughts were kind of negative and sucking. So doing 100 days of happy, positive, gratitudey stuff can only help! My goal is to find one, just one, good thing in each day. And then to express what that thing was for all to see.
And I know I can do this! I know I can because I know that every single day, no matter what kind of shitfest it may turn out to be, has at least one happy moment in it that I can be thankful for. It doesn’t have to be anything big. It could be hearing my favorite song, a hot cup of tea, a long shower, or going to bed in warm jammies and fresh sheets. Anything really… as long as it brings a moment of happiness.
So effective tomorrow I will be posting one happy, grateful thought every day, for 100 days. And I think that it just may help turn my attitude around… 🙂
