100 Happy Days

So about 100 days ago I decided to do that 100 happy days thing.  I'm actually not too sure what exactly I was meant to do, so I just wrote down one happy thing that happened each day for 100 days.  I'm not gonna lie and say it made me feel happier or anything.  But it did force me to think about something positive that happened every day, and I guess it's also a good way to document what you've been doing.

Here's my list of 100 happy days...

Now I'm pretty sure you didn't actually read every single one of those days.  But I'm hoping you at least picked up a few happy moments along the way.  Just typing these moments out makes me nostalgic. 

Well, I can tell you that day #101 has been pretty nice...

I guess this post is proof that there is something good in every day, if I managed to come up with 100 in a row.  So let's look forward to the many happy days to come.



  1. I looked at all of your happy days and it seems like you've had an awesome time! You've inspired me to do this too c:

    Also, I love the polaroids on the string!


    1. It's definitely a good thing to do each night, just thinking positive for once, so I'm glad you're doing it Amy. Haha yeah I'm literally in love with looking at it.

  2. Replies
    1. Oh man. It was so unexpected and creepy, right!?

  3. I like this idea! I was doing something similar to improve my self confidence- I was writing everyday 5 things that made me proud of myself- it worked, improved my life and made more happy!!!
    I believe that your life improved as well when you know that every day something good happens to you :)
    have a godd day!

    1. I love these ideas of writing something positive at the end of the day, documenting thoughts and positivity instead of just moaning into your diary. I'm certainly glad it helped you become more confident! Maybe my life did improve ;) I know that everyday really is a good day, right? So you have a good good day too xx

  4. You kept very quiet about this Missy! Haha it's such a great thing to do! :D

  13. Wow it takes a lot of thought to come up with a list like this. I want to try it, it reminds you what to be thankful for. I've never had a lolly cone, but they look good. And I love henna. Your design looks so cool I'm following you now. I can't wait to see what more posts you have to offer. - culturedmisprint.blogspot.com

    1. Haha it doesn't actually take much thought, just 100 days. Technically we made up lolly cones, but maybe someone else has too. Thanks for noticing their deliciousness though ;) And I loved the henna too! So much that I couldn't stop pausing and staring for days. Thanks for the follow. I'm checking out your blog now.

  14. Hey, I also completed the 100 happy days challenge! It was actually a little hard, right? But fulfilling in the end. It made me more grateful than ever.

    Congrats on completing this challenge. :)

    1. I guess it was a little hard, because on some days I was lost as to what to write and ended up writing something so insignificant. But I guess it still counts as a happy moment, meaning there's one in every day. Thanks! Congrats to you too xx

  15. Lovely to see such a happy post. Dr Who and Taylor - woo!

    Corinne x

    1. I'm glad you think so Corinne. Haha I absolutely love Taylor Swift, and I really need to catch up on Doctor Who. I've drastically fallen behind...

    1. Thanks Melissa! Haha those polaroids are so tumblr but I love them. And I think I have a thing for pineapples ;)

  17. This is a great post! I love to go back and remember happy things. I can relate to some of these too. Even though I didn't see it, MockingJay still fills me with excitement. I still can't get enough of "out of the woods"
