I was inspired by one of my favorite bloggers Erin at Sweet Sweat Life to take part in the #100HappyDays Challenge. I know, I know, I’ve had a lot of whining around here recently — winter, polar vortex, work stress, life, etc etc. However, at the end of the day, this disappoints me a little bit. I don’t talk much about my job on here, but I work in public health — specifically global HIV/AIDS. The things that I read about and observe on a day-to-day basis make all of my problems seems small — and they are. Instead of focusing on the negative and the annoying, which will always be there, I’ve decided to embrace the happy. There is no day that is that bad that there isn’t one good moment, and so here we go.
The day I started this adventure was the day that Taffy had to be admitted overnight into the pet hospital with a very scary condition. Since then, I’ve had my own health scare, and some other things haven’t been…ideal. Finding a small moment of happiness in the day is a great challenge, and I’m accomplishing my goal of not focusing on the negative.
I started on April 8, and here are some of my pictures from the first ten days. I think I’ll add a tab at the top so that I keep them all in one place, and I’d love to be able to look back on my 100 Happy Days in the future.
I know, I know. Less talking, more pictures:
