100 Happy Days

Howdy and welcome to my little piece of blogland.  I was looking at posts on InstaGram, and saw some photos people posted with the hash tag 100 happy days.  Curiosity got the better of me, and I went looking to see what it was all about.  Then I stumbled upon this web site:
The challenge is relatively easy.   Document what makes you happy every day for 100 days.  Sounds fun, creative, challenging and enlightening.  I registered yesterday with a start date for today.  
Now, if you were to ask me if I were 'happy' I'm not too sure how I would answer.  I mean, I'm not depressed, suffering, or euphoric either.  But am I 'happy'?  That's pretty hard for me to answer.  I'm busy, I'm working 40/+ hours a week at a paying job, I'd love to have a raise, I exercise several days a week, I'm married to a man who isn't a douche bag or a theft, I have grandchildren who are energentic, I live comfortably, but am I happy?  Uhm.  I don't think anyone has asked me that.  I find joy in creating: baking, sewing, crafting, accomplishing chores, interacting with my dog, and spending time with my family.  
So, I am actually looking forward to this challenge.  I want to find more joy in my life.  I'd love to tell folks that I am happy.  And I'd like to feel happy.  But, I really want to find happiness in my life, and to acknowledge and 'see' the blessings I have.  So, follow me on InstaGram, and look for my post with #100happydays.  To see what makes me happy!
