Haven't really missed a day yet either, other than one night when I forgot and posted a valid picture from that day as quickly as I remembered the next morning. On the whole, it's been pretty easy to keep up with, and yes, I think it might be helping with my overall mood & happiness.
|Day 71: Got some yardwork done |
that needed done. Relaxed with lemonade.
Sure there are some days where I've gotten to like 7 pm and realize I haven't take a picture of anything yet, and those are usually the busy or bleh days, but even taking a moment right then to find and appreciate something to tweet usually helps end the day on an up note. It's never really felt like a burden. It's actually kind of a mini gratitude practice, which I'm trying to do more of also.
Or as a way to recognize my accomplishments, like on Day 71 (see pic) I got yard work done which OK wasn't really the happiest thing I could have done that day, but I was happy that I did it, ya know? Plus afterward, sitting in my red chair on the back deck with cold lemonade, made me happy, and that shirt & hat make me happy, and so on and so on.
Today is Day 73 and I've already got a couple things I'm looking forward to that I can use as Happy Things. And interestingly enough, they don't have anything to do with sitting here in front of the computer, which I guess explains why I haven't updated the blog since starting the challenge... I've been busy being happy. Also, today is the last full day of school before it is out for the summer (tomorrow is a half day), so I need to go soak up the remaining "me time" hours while I can. Later!
