Day 18: Being happy makes me happy.
I know you’re like, “What kind of Inception shit is that?” 🙂 Further explanation is required, so awwwwwwwww here it goes:
Today I was working at the tech helpdesk for our customer conference. I spoke with quite a few coworkers, and two of them gave me the same compliment: “Every time I see you, you are so happy and energetic. I’ve never seen you have a bad day.”
That definitely put a smile on my face because I have plenty of bad days. I’ve got a number of issues I’m battling right now, but I always try to treat people how I want to be treated. I always attempt to put positivity into the world because I believe you get what you give. Sometimes it’s hard to be upbeat, but I try. And I appreciate that people see the effort.
Hello again, friends!
Lately, I’ve been struggling with appreciation. There are a lot of stressful things going on in my life right now (personal, professional, even legal) that can make seeing the beautiful things in life very hard to do. Therefore, for the next 100 days, I will post something that makes me happy and tag it with #100HappyDays to make myself reflect on the positive aspects of my life. These posts will include people, places, things, whatever–anything that makes me happy is eligible for the 100HappyDays hashtag. 🙂
Day 1: This blog makes me happy! Even though I don’t update every day (or even every month) I enjoy having this space to voice my opinions. There are some things I want to share with the entire world; this blog gives me the opportunity to get those thoughts and ideas out to a wide audience. There are some times when I’m sad, lonely, scared, angry, or just need to vent–this blog is the safe space I need to get those feelings out.
(PS: I got this idea from my friend/coworker Nicole. Check out her awesome blog here!)
