One of my favourite social media is Instagram. I don’t care so much for Facebook or Twitter, but Instagram is lovely. I follow a great bunch of awesome people (quite a lot of you guys!) who make me really happy when I’m scrolling through my feed when I’ve just woken up, or when I’m in public transport during rush hour.
Only recently I’ve started the #100happydays challenge. You may or may not be familiar with it already, but in case you were wondering… that’s why I have been instagrammin’ for the last 10 days…every single day. And I’ll only be done by the time I have my final exam of the semester! Here are a few out-takes.
The challenge is a little initiative to live a happier life. The 100 happy days website puts it like this, “The ability to appreciate the moment, the environment and yourself in it, is the base for the bridge towards long term happiness of any human being.” And the point is to post a single picture everyday, of what made you happy that day. They claim that people who succesfully completed the challenge claimed to: start noticing what makes them happy every day; be in a better mood every day; realize how lucky they are to have the life they have; become more optimistic…etc. Which is quite a promise isn’t it?
But I must say, 10 days in and I am already getting more conscious of the happy things in life. I have to confess that I started this challenge because I am not always in the best place in my head, so I thought I needed a little change. And while I still have bad days, it is wonderful to find something that did lift my spirits, even if it’s just for a little while, that day… and put it in a picture. And the good thing is, looking back already makes me realize how lucky I am. Though I have my issues, I think life is nonetheless really neat. Oh, and I’ll soon post that Poppin’ Cookin’ goodness on the blog. :)
