One hundred days of looking for what’s good, right, amazing and uplifting in our lives will be launching again on Monday, June 1. Lowi and I participated in 100 Days of Happiness last year and it was everything we thought it would be and nothing we thought it would be.
At times, it was easy and a toss-up to pick just one photo to post that represented how full life felt. But the real learning and growing came from the days that were hard, disappointing or just plain average.
How do you find happiness or joy in the everyday? How do you find what’s working in a day where everything you touch seems to turn to crap-ola?
Take it from us, you can.
You can, because life, generally, is never as bad as we think.
You can, because if you make a commitment online for the world to read, you aren’t going to quit. (Oh, wait, maybe that’s just us.)
You can, because if you really pay attention there is goodness in the little moments all the time.
That’s much of what 100 days of happiness taught us last year, the little things matter.
Having a nice quiet evening with a cup of tea and good book matters.
Going to bed early on “clean sheet day” counts just as much as going to Disney or getting a promotion.
Let’s get down to the nitty gritty. What do you need to know/do?
For 100 days, starting June 1, post on Facebook, Instagram, and/or Twitter a photo of one thing each day that brings you to happy. Please use the #LG100DaysHappy so we know you’re out there with us. If it’s easier for you, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org your photos.
There aren’t really any rules to this other than we’ll do it for 100 days. If you miss one, it’s OK. If you are afraid to start because 100 days feels like too much we encourage you to reconsider because when it gets a little hard is where the transformation comes. When you’ve spent the day alone, doing laundry and cleaning the bathroom it can seem like nothing joyful has crossed your path but if you commit to the seeking, you’ll find it.
Who knows who you’ll be on day 101.
Can’t wait to find out along the way.
Sunshine & Sarcasm,
Lowi & G
