We stumbled into this exercise of 100 Days of Happiness a couple of years ago and each time, each week, each day we learn. We learn happiness isn’t frivolous. We learn happiness is often simple. We learn happiness is rarely, if ever, about stuff.
But we also learn that we need to be reminded regularly and often of all of these things. We forget. We get distracted. We get confused and start to think that things make us happy, that perfecting ourselves or our lives will get us to “the happy.”
And then summer rolls around and we get to this 100 days of practice and again we’re back to right-minded thinking. What’s exciting is that with each collection of 100 days the renewed knowledge comes quicker, more readily.
Every day I am reminded that contentment can just as easily be happiness as bodacious joy.
Here are a sampling of the quality moments we’ve found over the last several days (and some that you’ve posted as well).
