The thing about new year is that it isn’t really that different from the old year.
Is there really a huge difference from the 31st of December to the 1st of January?  It is just the next day…
What it can do though is give us the opportunity to have a definable date for changing our attitudes and for correcting mistakes that we made in the past.
My mission for this year is to try to find something positive about every single day. No matter how challenging or miserable that day is.

I have signed up to the 100 Happy days challenge.
The challenge is to take a photograph of what makes you happy every day for 100 days!
The thing that I like about the challenge is that it not only makes you look for positive things but forces you to slow down to appreciate it when you have to stop to take a photo.  I know that I often admire something or notice something but I just hurry on by without stopping to just breathe in the moment.
If you want to join me, that would be great! You can even share your happy moments here.  I commit to sharing more happy moments with you too.

If you are not into photography and want to try something different, here’s another idea: A friend of mine bought a nice glass jar and she is writing positive messages every morning and putting them into the jar.
Somebody else bought a diary that was way too pretty to use for work and she committed to writing a positive entry in every lunch time.
Although I don’t think that there is such a thing a too pretty for work – we all need a pretty moment at work too.
My husband has taken to singing Monty Python songs to voice his appreciation.
Whatever you decide to do, do it! Choose something conventional or something unique that is going to make you appreciate what you have more and be more happy!

Let me know what you are going to do to be happier. I look forward to sharing your ideas!
