#MicroblogMondays 17 – Reflections on 100 Happy Days

After 100 days in a row of taking and posting photos of things that made me happy, it seems awfully strange to not be doing so today! So just to ease myself out of the practice, I thought I’d share a look back at the past 100 days and, as promised, some reflections on my 100 Happy Days experience. Hope you enjoy… and maybe get inspired to give 100 Happy Days a try for yourself!

This has been an amazing project, and if you’ve never tried it before I encourage you to give it a shot. Add notes on your calendar to remind yourself to take your daily photos… commit to blogging for 100 days in a row as an incentive to take and share your photos… join a friend in encouraging each other along the way… whatever it takes! I can assure you that you won’t regret the experience.
