#100HappyDays: Day 1

Day 1: #SpelmanCollege

Nothing made me smile harder today then the walk I made through my alma mater, Spelman College, today. It empowered me; it inspired me; and it encouraged me to pursue my dreams with even more energy and intentionality than before. I love my College. The professors, my classmates, the administrative staff has helped mold me into who I am today and for that, I am eternally grateful.

#100HappyDays: The Challenge

What makes you happy?100HappyDayChallenge

Hard question huh? To tell you the truth, when I first asked myself this question, I couldn’t answer it either.

Knowing what makes you happy is crucial to your well being and overall satisfaction with life. For, how can you be content if you don’t know what makes you feel at peace? A lot of people try to make themselves happy with tangible and intangible items like, a home, a car, a Macbook, fame, or even climbing the corporate ladder. Some of the happiest people I’ve encountered have led the most simplistic lifestyle. Perhaps we don’t need such expensive items to make us happy.

So, I ask myself today and for the next 100 days, what makes me happy? The 100HappyDays challenge requires me to post what makes me happy for 100 consecutive days. From today, May 1, 2014 through August 8, 2014, I will post a picture on my blog and on Twitter of something that makes me happy each day. Follow me on Twitter @scribsandtosts, #100happydays.

By the end of this challenge, I hope to have a collection of simple items, ideas, and people who make me happy. The collection will inspire me on rainy days and provide a new perspective on life.
