I’ve been feeling a little down last week. During the weekend I’ve gone back to a negative place in my life where I feel like I’m obligated to go to once in a while
(ooh, mysterious). I’m sad to say that it got to me a little bit.
I guess that’s why I want to give the #100happydays challenge a shot. The next hundered days I have to take a picture of something that makes me happy. I think this is a wonderful way to learn to appreciate what I have and how lucky I am with all these good things around me. It will be my search for positivity, which is something I should strive for any day anyway. Even if I’ll be part of the 71% of contestants that doesn’t make it, I think it will be a good personal journey for me to go through.
But it won’t be just a personal journey. It’s also part of a little ‘experiment’ I’m doing with my fellow, brand new, magazine students. Someone that’s already doing it introduced this to our teacher and she thought it was a fun thing to do with people that wanted to participate with her. I was doubting to do this at first, but I’m going to try. Because I feel like this is a good way to look at what I have here. We’re going to see who’s the first that will ‘fail’. Even though I might not make it through 100 days I hope I won’t fail by learning to see the happy moments. Even on days when I’m off.
I officially started today, so I’ve already got my first post up. It’s in Dutch because I’m posting it on my social network which I usually use to connect to my Dutchies. Are you guys interested in following this as well? If so, I could do one in English. Maybe I’ll keep you guys updated.
And if we’re talking about following things through: I should really post more blogs. I’m so bad at maintaining blogs even though I love to write the blogposts.
