You’ve probably seen it all across social media: people adding #100happydays to their posts and posting more frequently than normal. The idea behind it is to recognize something happy in each and every day. It’s a great idea, which is why I decided to start doing it (on Instagram, in my case).
But there are those days where there really aren’t many happy things at all. Or – on a less depressing note – days where you are so busy living life that you forget entirely to document it on social media. I have fallen victim to those days, which is probably obvious, or else I wouldn’t be writing this post.
Now, I think that the goal of finding happy moments in blah or unhappy days is really important. And that’s why I didn’t just stop when I missed one or two. I went back at it, went back at capturing the happy moments in my life, because that’s the whole point of the challenge. If we have a bad day or moment, we don’t just give up. The world keeps on going, and the happy moments come back around, an hour, a day, a week, a month later. They come back.
Here are some of the pictures I’ve been posting as a part of this challenge.
What are your thoughts on the #100happydays program?
