The Happiness Challenge : Day 1
I am so excited about this. I think it is because we have done this before and it yielded good results. Also, the mere thought of me having to write non stop for thirty days, is making me squeal with delight. It’s been such a long year. Actually, it’s been kind of fast, but long still in happenings and activities.
For the Newbies, Last year November, a friend suggested that we embark on a 30 day journey where we get to set up activities for ourselves everyday and check on one another to make sure we actually did those things, She blogs here
. I then picked the baton and did a challenge on this blog, People were quite responsive and we even reached an audience larger than I imagined. We were able to help ourselves to engage in meaningful activities and to inculcate habits that have helped us better in this year. You can check the one from last year here
. It is important to let you know that I also share pictures during this challenge, If not every day, You’ll be getting pictures from me every other day which could be myself or just any beautiful picture I come across. This is me today, for instance.
Another awesome thing is the number of Brands partnering with us, tell you what guys, everything is easier when you have Creative minds and Entrepreneurs as friends. I couldn’t be more proud! Last year, we had a giveaway sponsored by Nuella Michaels
. Halima of LeemLar’s Blog

There are other Brands that might add gifts too before the challenge is up, wait for it! I know your interests have been piqued. Lol, Mine would be too. I also know you want to ask how to go about winning these. Well, I’m still trying to figure out if i want to give many people at will or have runners up with different packages. The bottom line is, Only those who participate will be picked and only comments would show how much you have participated, Hence, if I were you, I would position myself in the comment section for the next thirty days!
The Challenge begins…
Today, we will be listing the things in our lives that are making us happy at the moment. (similar to day 1 last year right? yes, that’s deliberate) Be it recently gotten things, or humans who have stayed, or jobs that we have, or random occurrences that get us by, Everything! Relax, take a deep breath and Count your blessings! Yes, I’ll be calling it that. Do list them in the Comment section, let’s see what makes your world rock. Don’t forget that the little things also count!
I’ll be back tomorrow, and the next, and the next, God willing! BOS
