100 Days of Gratitude and Thankfulness

So have you heard of the #100happydays challenge that’s going around on social media? Well I have barely heard of the concept; however today when I was thinking of ideas to blog about I thought about how easy it would be to blog about 100 things that I am happy and/or thankful for.

So if you haven’t heard of 100 Happy Days, go check out the story. And if that isn’t enough, maybe you can read about Dmitry Golubnichy, who appeared on the Today show, and started this concept.

Why?

It’s been¬†scientifically proven that grateful people who are thankful, live a more purposeful and fulfilling life. An “attitude of gratitude” is the way to approach life. There are so many benefits to living a life of happiness.

So I got to be thinking, perhaps writing 100 blogs would be a great idea. I mean, it would help me accomplish my challenge of writing 365 blogs in 52 weeks, but even better, why not post things that I am thankful for.

On top of all of that…

Today happens to be September 22nd… and ironically enough, there are 100 days left in the year (precisely¬†100, that’s right, I looked it up on WikiPedia). So, starting today, I am going to post about 100 things that I am grateful for and happy for.

The First Day

The first thing I am happy for is my parents. They have taught me everything and spent 18 years raising me to adulthood.

Through thick and thin they have stayed together and I am very happy and thankful for the foundations that they setas parents.

First, it was a foundation of love but most important, it was a foundation of excellence and morality.

The Challenge

Now I would like to challenge YOU as my reader, to join me in the #100happydays challenge and post 100 pictures, posts, status updates, or whatever you want for the next 100 days.

Do you think you can do it? I’d love to have a couple personal accountability partners who want to keep me accountable!
