I’m never really one for challenges. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not that I am an unmotivated sloth or anything. I am quite driven and determined but I don’t like the restraint a challenge brings and the wording associated with it when you accept one; “MUST”, “HAVE TO”, “BETTER DO THIS”, “EATING THAT ENTIRE ICE-CREAM CAKE IS NOT HELPFUL”… You know, those kind of things. I am more of a passive breed of species that thinks, “If I just say I want something, I will focus on the fact that I want it and not think about how to get it”. Call it positive mental attitude, cockiness or just blind, jammy luck but for some reason, this method has always worked for me. (Bets are on that it is just sheer luck. I am the human bunny foot).
However, I am now about to jump on the challenge band wagon and do something called “100 Days Happy”. Basically, I just take a picture of one thing that makes me happy on a daily basis, tweet the positive entity in question and do this for 100 days. Simple right? Eh no. Seriously, I’ve had socks that barely made it past the second wear before they were binned.
Must. Dedicate. Myself.
Why am I doing this? I guess because I am always looking at what I want rather than what I have right then, in a moment and I would like to remind myself that every day, something big, medium or little makes me happy. I am grateful for this life thing with all its ickle, bickle quirks.
Happy me; happy life.
So here I go. Let’s do this. Let’s devote myself to a 100, snap-happy photo’s over the next 14.29 weeks! (Yo b*tch, I did the math).
Should you be interested in this absolute candied, rainbow fest of positivity, you can follow me on twitter https://twitter.com/MonicaMiniMon or just click the Twitter button on the right of this page. Pretty easy stuff.
P.S. I really hope this doesn’t turn into a “100-Days-Of-Making-Stuff-Make-Me-Happy” kind of scenario. That just sounds plain tiring.
