Working on happiness

Idle thoughts seeing a friend telling on Facebook that she has joined a site for posting something for 100 days. Each day a post about happiness.

Is this also for me? Naah!

Stop and think, what harm can it do? Uses up a few minutes each day. I can spare that.

Will it have any benefits?

There is only one way to find out.

So I am trying it out. So far so good. Nothing spectacular, but n a day of stress and frustration, it made me deliberately look for something that made the day bearable. That can only be good.

  1. It will be of some interest to see if it has any effect. Personally, it reminds me of a group of young kids at school dutifully singing, in dirge-like tones, ‘I am H A P P Y, I am H A P P Y …’

    1. Some days it has been hard. I suspect that taking time to think of something good in your life on a bad day is good for breaking a negative thought pattern.

  2. I have to think about it – am I happy? Well, I’m not Unhappy and I am content with my life at the moment so, well… I suppose I AM happy, lol 😉

  3. Someone told me today, that it had been over a year, closer to two, that they had laughed or felt happy. Ugh.

    1. THat is very sad. I gave up on the 100 day thing as it felt very forced when I really was having a bad time. But I worked through that and am doing happy lots of the time.
