I have decided to join in and do the 100 happy days challenge. If you’re not familiar with it, it is a photo challenge started by a 27 year old man living in Switzerland who was not feeling very “happy”. He set out on this challenge to get himself to enjoy life and see it for it’s beauty. You can read more about it here, because his website is incredibly simple. At the end of the challenge you can get an awesome little book printed with your 100 days of memories. The foundation that was started along with the challenge is to help support people with disabilities. These people are also the ones who put together your memory book, instead of a mass producer.
I’m sure over the past 8 months you have seen someone start posting pictures with the hashtag #100happydays and over time it eventually stopped. That’s because according to the website 71% of people who start the challenge cannot complete it. It sounds kind of crazy because it’s simply posting 1 picture a day, and well, how much time are you on your social media through out the day? But I get it, you get busy and forget. Well that’s kind of the point. To not forget all the amazing things in your life on a day to day basis.
I’m not doing this because I’m unhappy and need to make myself see how great my life is. I already know that and am quite happy with the life my family leads. I’m doing it for fun! And to get myself more committed to my social media, without taking time away from my family.
I started my challenge yesterday and you can follow along on my Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook feed until November 26. That puts me 3 days before my due date, so those last weeks may be hard since my first daughter was 2 weeks early.
If you want to sign up for the challenge, you can at the 100 happy days website.
Enjoy Your Adventure,
