Can you be happy for 100 days?

Dear Readers!

Anyone paying a lick of attention knows that I try my best to keep a cheery disposition and some have even called me Sunshine- (a favourite amongst my plethora of monikers) so I figured this challenge to post something about being happy for 100 days would be pretty simple.

One my favourite aspects of this challenge is this rule– which (if obeyed) will effectively cut out the “comparison war” we can fall prey to by taking in too much social media and not enough life.  “It is not a happiness competition or a showing off contest. If you try to please / make others jealous via your pictures – you lose without even starting. ”

The person who told me about is herself, a very happy person, so I was intrigued and then after reading this, I was in..

People successfully completing the challenge claimed to:
– Start noticing what makes them happy every day;
– Be in a better mood every day;
– Start receiving more compliments from other people;
– Realize how lucky they are to have the life they have;
– Become more optimistic;
– Fall in love during the challenge.

“It is not a happiness competition or a showing off contest. If you try to please / make others jealous via your pictures – you lose without even starting. ”

Too often we measure our happiness by someone else’s yardstick. I have said it before but it bears repeating—

“Foamy soap and rock star parking rock my socks and is enough to make my day”

How about you?

Think about it!

Your dream is a lot bigger than you are…

Dear Readers, Thank you for reading my blog. I know you don’t always comment but I know many of you are reading it and have met a few of you lately who have taken the time to tell me how much it helps you to know I am working out or working towards my goals and in turn it helps you to take one more baby step towards your dream.

Kermit the Frog said it best “Well, I have a dream too, but it’s about singing and dancing and making people happy. It’s the kind of dream that gets better the more people you share it with. And I found a whole group of friends who have the same dream, and that makes us sort of like a family.”

It struck me today how much it helps to have people to share a dream with and the more people you tell about it the more people can and WILL support you. As for the ones who don’t well they are just mad that they didn’t go after what they wanted. That’s about them, not you.

Make sure you ask for help and tell lots of supportive, positive people about what you are up to. They might surprise you with what they have to offer to help you get to where you are going.

Think about it!
