Seems totally doable, no? I was stumbling around on social media today (per usual) and saw a good friend of mine, Kelly, post something on her page about this “100 Days of Happiness Challenge.” It immediately caught my attention for many reasons, the obvious one being the word happiness…who doesn’t love to be happy!?
So anyways, I reached out to her to ask her what this was all about and to learn a little bit more because I love doing numeric challenges and seeing how long I can actually keep up with them. This one, by the way, will be the longest one ever lol but totally worth it for what it stands for and represents. I asked her about it and she said that essentially you are just supposed to post about something that makes you happy or something positive, every day, for 100 days. There are no limits, no restraints, just the opportunity for you to share your happiness with the people around you.
For me, I really want to take it upon myself to stick to this challenge because I know that I let things bother me WAY more often than I should. So if I remind myself everyday of something that makes me happy or something positive in my life, I’m hoping that I will fall into a better routine of positivity and personal encouragement.
Day One: “If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together… there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart… I’ll always be with you.”
― A.A. Milne
This is my entry for the day because this is one of my most favorite quotes. Yes, I am fully aware that it is from Winnie the Pooh – do not judge me. But my reason for sharing this is that I have always tried to base my personal relationships (of all kinds) off of this quote. I try to be an extremely loyal person to the people I love and care about. No matter what happens in life, good or bad, I don’t want to be a person that could ever be talked about negatively. I try to be the best person I can be, I try to be the nicest person, and I truly try to make everyone happy (sometimes I try too hard – but this is about happiness so I won’t get into that! Lol) So for those people who are a part of life, who used to be a part of my life, and who will one day be a part of my life – know and remember, that you’ll always have me and I will always believe in you…you just have to remember to believe in yourself too.
So…here’s to 100 days! Don’t be a flake Kopper Joi! 😉
