100 Happy Days

So as I mentioned in this post I am starting the 100 Happy Days Challenge. This consists of taking a picture for 100 days in a row of the little things that make you happy. It should help me to appreciate the little things in life, and help to reduce stress, and give me a more positive outlook on things. That’s the plan anyway. Check out my Instagram page for daily updates and little explanations.

So this page will be where I keep a log of those 100 Happy Days, starting on 2nd March 2014
