I started doing the 100 days of happy at the beginning of the year. I had decided to do this because 2013 was a not so good year for me. My mom had spent most of the year in the hospital for various reasons as well as the loss of another close family member in the end of the summer. I also had been dealing with some things of my own at the time.
A challenge to find things that made me happy seemed like a good way for me to get back to my self or at least as much as I could. I found that 100 days can be a long period of time and that a lot can happen in 100 days.
My work gets me into many homes on a daily basis so I get to see a lot of different things. Because of this I have a lot of animals in my life that all make me happy every time I see them.
I spend a lot of time on the road and see all kinds of things while I am driving. Some times just a clear sunny day after a couple of weeks of nothing but cloudy is a nice thing. And signs are everywhere to be seen and sometimes the can be funny as well. And the winter may have been long this year there are some things that can make one smile in a front yard.
Saturday night is family movie night in our home and is always a good time not matter what the movie is and how good or bad it is.
In my work I get in many homes and see all kinds of funny items as well as things that I do not see regularly.
Being self employed my job keeps me working 52 weeks a year so I have very little time to myself. I value my Sundays and make sure that I use that day to relax regularly.
Over the last 100 days I found that is really is easy to find something that can make you smile. laugh or just feel good if you just let yourself be aware of your surroundings. I hope everyone can find something that makes you happy today.
