The next 18 days of my 100HappyDays, of my personal Happiness Project, include enjoying some beautiful and deep snow, checking out new places and joining some new book clubs and film clubs, running around, eating the yummy snacks from my latest Graze box from my dear Sister-in-Law, eating more yummy things like breakfast burritos and muffins, writing some letters, checking out Orchids, celebrating Rocky Mountain National Park’s 100th Anniversary, and doodling. Happiness is in the little things, the minor details in your day of stress, heartbreak, and fatigue. It is all about being present, today. Tomorrow is unknown, and yesterday is gone.
Last year was one of the most difficult years for me, and I want to let 2014 stay where it needs to be, back in 2014. To keep things in perspective while starting this new year, I am finding something that brings me happiness in every day. (Even if it is just my cat or dog…) I know there will be sadness and hardships in 2015, but I want to make sure that with each night, I fall asleep thinking about the one positive thing that made me smile that day.
I started the 100HappyDays challenge on December 22nd and here are my first 18 days. This is my Happiness Project. This is me choosing the present and living it. I have already enjoyed good books, great winter weather, kitty snuggles, delicious java, tropical botanic gardens, 4 inches of hair loss, and the birth of my first nephew! 2015 has started off with a lot to be grateful for.
Looking forward to the next 82 days…
