100 Happy Days (1-25)

Welcome to my 100 Happy Days page!

What’s this all about?

Well, one evening, I was searching for positive or useful content to Tweet (@annsilverthorn), and as you know, finding positive news can be quite a challenge.

So, I Googled the word, “happy,” and found numerous results related to Pharrell’s catchy tune, which I love, but found on page four, 100 Happy Days.” Clicking the link, I was faced with the question, “Can you be happy for 100 days in a row?” Intrigued, I Googled the site to see what it was all about.

It seems that Dmitry Golubnichy, a Ukrainian living in Switzerland, created the hashtag in late 2013, because although his life was good, he had fallen into a slump. He challenged himself to post one picture a day of something that made him happy for 100 days on Instagram. At first he posted just one picture a day, but he soon found himself posting 10 pictures a day, and 50 days into the project, his life had changed. He was happy.

I consider myself a pretty happy person, but I’ve found myself increasingly dismayed by all the sadness and anger around the world. To counterbalance the negativity, I have taken up the 100 Happy Day challenge. Looking at these photos will make me smile, and maybe they will make you smile, too . . .
