I just completed my #100happydays challenge. Yay!!!
So what is this #100happydays challenge?? What do you have to do?
You just have to find something happy about each day, for 100 days in a row. Sounds easy right?? And who’s got time for these silly challenges?
Well, I thought so too at first too. I came to know about this challenge more than a year ago through Devon Flinn‘s article. And yes my first thoughts were, who’s got time for this?? But a few months back I found myself in a situation that I didn’t want to be in. I realized that I was on a path where I was changing into someone that I didn’t want to become.
I was always complaining and whining, constantly anxious about the future and in repeated pointless self-criticism. My procrastinating habit was out of hand and my productivity was suffering. I could only see all the negative aspect of my life, even though my life was pretty normal. I was irritated most of the time so much so that it was about to consume me. People around me were starting to get annoyed, especially my family members. I was scared that this was what I was becoming, an irritable, complaining women!!
I had to do something to change where I was heading. I needed to find happiness and be content. That is when I decided to do this happiness challenge, and I don’t regret it. I took an initiative to choose happiness and take control of my life.
Now, I am more appreciative of the little things in life, I am happier and more productive. When I started this, I had a mixed feeling about this, I thought either it would be really easy or I would be too busy to complete it. But, as it turned out, it was neither easy nor that extraordinary of a feat.
There were days that I could find much happiness, but there were times I was so busy there was no time for happiness. Can you believe that there was not a single second for my own happiness?! It took me a while to get used to the idea, but when I got the hang of it, I could see things, little things that held joy in this mundane life.
I think because of this mindset I took a few decisions that I wouldn’t have taken before. First and the most important was deciding to go over the odds to bring home this adorable furry creature, who has become the love of my life, Toby the Labrador. Second was taking the opportunity to become an instructor at Deerwalk Institute of Technology. Third was trying bullet journaling, which has become a major part of my life now.
This challenge has made me more conscious about the decisions I make, more appreciative of the little joys in life.
Are you capable of being happy for 100 days straight??
Starting something new. Well, brain dump is basically a page where I dump all the different ideas that pop into my head. It doesn’t matter how random it is or how ridiculous it is. This is just a place for me to jot down all my thoughts before it disappears into thin air. Later on, I can sort them out and separate the gems and the pure bullshit.
Redecorating your room. 🙂 It feels great when it turns out just like how you thought it would be.
