I already feel like I am drawing to the end of my #100HappyDays Challenge. It hasn’t really been a challenge at all as I am now in the habit of stopping to capture a moment of happiness, which is the ultimate challenge. I am truly, consciously, intentionally aware of happiness and I am very thankful.
#100happydays began as an Instagram exercise in gratitude, a challenge to take a moment to be purposefully thankful for the many happy moments that make up my days.
Because this is an Instagram project, I am limiting myself to something I can photograph. Likewise, I use very few words to describe these images.
Day 61: Watching these two boys cheer on the @nazarethlgp Roadrunners! It’s so great to be able to take them to work with me and get them excited about high school. #GoNaz — at Nazareth Academy.
Day 62: Sunday evening on the deck with the perfect combo — beer, pretzels & book. Such a great way to spend an hour. #amreading — at Bistro 3513.
Day 63: Posted by Random House today, this one made me smile. #booklove #booknerd
Day 64: boys, books and baseball. One of my favorite combinations. #fallball #amreading— at Baseball Alley.
Day 65: Cooler weather is fine by us. Boys are still in the yard for some sunset sports. I love this time of year.#brothers #family — at Bistro 3513.
Day 66: My day started with a beautiful card from a friend. Feeling so lucky & blessed to have her in my life.
Day 67: A lovely long lunch with my mom and Jane. We toasted my dad and talked & talked & talked. — with Jane St Pierre Murguia and Karen Skinner.
Day 68: Buona means good. Sunday lunch with my guys at one of our favorite spots. — at Buona Beef.
Day 69: Some days it’s the smallest thing. By luck of the draw, I get a parking spot until the end of October.
Day 70: The saxophone has arrived. Matty has joined the band. — at Bistro 3513.
How about you? How do you practice gratitude?
