100 Days of Happy =-) #100happydays

For the past several years, I have tried to find happiness in every single day.  I can't stress how amazing it is to be truly thankful for something deep down in your soul every... single... day!  One more time... EVERY... SINGLE... DAY!  Whether it be someting BIG like a new job allowing you to relocate to the city of your dreams or the smallest thing that others may not notice... such as a the warmth of a sunbeam on your body that brings back a beautiful memory.  Whatever it is, I believe in the idea of putting it out there and sharing with anyone that will listen to put the brakes on any pessimistic thoughts that may creep into your brain and bring you down.  Now... imagine 100 days of kicking your pessimism in the pessimistic butt!  One hundred days of going to bed knowing that the hug from your child brought you more joy than the frustration you felt when you spilled coffee on your new shirt.  I don't care how corny it sounds people... LIFE IS SHORT!  IT IS!  IT IS!  IT IS!  If you are miserable more often than not, then it's time to take a challenge of finding the good in each and every day.  Let's do it together and join me in 100 days of finding joy in your life! 

Today when you see something that brings a smile to your face and joy in your heart, capture it and put it on Instagram with the hashtag #100happydays.  If you want to meet new people that are joining in on the same day, hashtag what day you are on... #day1, #day2, etc.  We can all celebrate together when we reach 100... it's important to have goals, but no need to stop there!  Keep the streak alive!

I am so excited to start this today because I know that when the stress of being a mom, a wife, a nursing student, and a loving friend can become overwhelming, there is still so much to be thankful for.  =-) Cheers to 100 days of being happy!!!
