DAY 3: THE NOVEMBER HAPPINESS CHALLENGE
We are progressing, Aren’t we? It’s Day 3 already. If you are just joining us, you can still check for the first day here
and the second day here
. It isn’t too late to do those two. In fact, the idea is that it should be a consistent activity. Yesterday, many people reached out to me and to say I was overwhelmed might be an understatement. People told me how happy their parents were for the gestures they made and I even got some screen munches as evidence. This is one
To encourage fairness, I did mine too . My dad was really surprised and he even told my mum about it. Papa was probably scared sef. lol. This is what I sent to him.
I sent a similar one to mum and see what she said :d
See guys, my mum is on another level with this ‘soji’ thing. She no dey carry last! LOL. Back to the business…
It isn’t a fallacy that many of us fall out with friends and acquaintances from time to time. This isn’t far fetched because we are all human and our actions can’t sit well with one another all the time. People will hurt us, We’ll hurt people, consciously or unconsciously. It could be because of sayings or deeds. This then leads to the dreaded ‘Malice’ which most times, does not lead to good things. No matter how strong minded we think we are, Malice has a way of draining us and sometimes making us feel miserable. You need something from someone or you just want to reach out to that person and you remember you bear a grudge, It could be really saddening.
I understand that we fall out with some people because we had to and it seems the best for us but can we at least keep things civil? Be on ‘hello’ levels? Detoxify our minds of all hate and displeasure? No, I’m not trying to paint myself as the seemingly perfect human who never holds grudges. I do, in fact I’m sure there are many people who have one or two things against me. ( *Weeps*). My only solace lies in the fact that I can’t hold on to grudges for long. Someday, I will reach out! That is how I’m wired. Everything is better when we are at peace with ourselves and those around us. This might seem like a tall dream but trust me, It is achievable.
Peace brings happiness and Isn’t that what this challenge is about? We have to be happy!
So darling readers, here is the challenge for today!:
- Think of that friend you haven’t been cool with. Whether you are right or wrong doesn’t exactly matter
- Text/call. In fact, Calling would do the magic.
- Let the person know you just wanted to say Hello and check up on him/her.
- Watch the person get surprised and watch the happiness creep in on you.
- Feed us back!
I’d surely do same too and give you guys a feedback tomorrow..
Wednesday smile? I didn’t forget . I’m not feeling very well today but I still managed a smile for you!
I’ll be back. BOS
