Many of us started off the new year with a new mantra or a list of resolutions. Maybe we decided to take better care of ourselves or lose weight.
And, maybe we haven’t done too well at keeping those resolutions or remembering that mantra.
But that’s okay. I firmly believe that no matter what’s happened in the past, we have the power to influence our present and our future.
So, even though it’s past the time when most folks are thinking and talking about resolutions, I’ve come up with another one. And this is one you can share with your whole family.
It’s a potentially attitude-changing, focus-inducing resolution that revolves around being happy. I’m talking about the 100 Happy Days Challenge. Have you heard of it?
My niece told me about it via Facebook—I love the way FB is helping me connect with family and friends all across the globe. When my niece “shared” the info on the 100 Happy Days Challenge, she said she could really see me enjoying it. And she’s totally right. I love taking pics of what makes me happy. Or taking a pic I think would make someone else happy and sending it to them.
That’s what you’re supposed to do with the 100 Happy Day Challenge—take a daily pic of something that made you happy THAT day. Post it on either FB or Twitter or another social media site using #100HappyDaysChallenge. Or, if you want to keep it private, you can email them directly. At the end of your 100 days, you’ll have a collage of your happy moments.
Sure life isn’t always good times and smiles. Life’s tough. No matter what age you are. Sometimes we focus on the negative, allowing it to drag us down. This challenge is intended to flip that thinking upside down. Get you focusing on what’s good in your life today, in THIS moment.
Doesn’t that sounds like perfect dinner table conversation for you and your family? Sharing your pics or just sharing the moment that made you smile, even in the midst of a trying day.
So, I’m taking the 100 Happy Days Challenge, and I encourage you to join me. I’ll be posting mine via Twitter using the #100HappyDaysChallenge tag. Find me via @prisakiss.
100 days from now, let’s see how we did. More importantly, let’s see how our outlook has changed for the positive.
I’m in, are you?
