Super late post going up today because poor Typepad has been down for a large portion of the morning and I wasn’t organized enough to have a post written last night.
The last few days I’ve been so busy with work that I’m bring a lot of work related stress home with me at the end of the day and finding it very difficult to turn off that portion of my brain. I wrote a little post yesterday about how I’ve made some plans to turn that around, but another method I like to use to keep stress at bay is to focus on the little positive things. The happy moments of everyday if you will…
I’ve noticed on IG that a lot of people are doing the #100happydays challenge where you share a photo, each day for 100 days, of something that makes you happy. The idea being that reflection on happiness will make us happier overall. I’m terrible at photo-based challenges…just try clicking that project 365 tab on the right and you’ll realize just how bad…. so I don’t want to commit to doing a challenge but when I scrolled through my own IG last night I realized that subconsciously I was already sharing photos that made me happy.
Like photos of Boomer being the adorable little cutie pie he is….photos of the huge orange we picked up in wholefood (it was shockingly expensive though)…finding another vegan wine to try…. Trips to the library…. Learning new knitting techniques while watching Parks and Rec on Netflix….
Celebrating little moments of happy…one day at a time.
