For over a month now I've been participating in the 100 happy days hash tag on Instagram whereupon each day you post a picture of something that made you happy that day for 100 days. It's basically been created so you can appreciate the little things in life and be positive on even what may seem like the worst days.


Since coming to Australia I've been the happiest I've ever been in my life, but that doesn't mean I still don't go through phases of self doubt and sadness. I initially started this project a month ago when I wasn't feeling too great about everything that was going on in my life - don't get me wrong I wasn't depressed or anything but I just wasn't in the state of mind I wanted to be in at the time. Not necessarily taking original photos, but thinking about what has made me happy on each day has made me appreciate the little things that happen in my life. For example: I'm not a barista yet but I'm learning how to make good coffee at work, and the other day a customer complemented a cappuccino that I made and it genuinely made my day.

It's not even things that I do that always create a happy day; it can be the people that I spend it with, the comments that they make or the laughter that we had. Sometimes it is the littlest things that can make the difference in your life and it makes you actually appreciate those little moments and not to just pass them off. 

While I'm sitting writing this I'm thinking about how ridiculously cheesy this is sounding but sometimes I feel as though people don't express how they feel enough due to the fact that it sounds "cheesy" or "fake" when it's actually how they're genuinely feeling. I'd fully recommend participating in the #100happydays challenge whether it be on instagram, twitter, facebook or another social media platform as it really does make you think. Oh, my Instagram is katiehodgkinson_ for all of those interested in my shameless plug. Shameless Katie is shameless!

What's made you happy today?
