Documenting a 100 Happy Days project (2015)
Some background about the book
In 2014, someone on the 365 project asked people to join in a 100 Happy Days challenge. More people joined in than I thought and I was one of them. The purpose? The 100 Happy Days site says:
We live in times when super-busy schedules have become something to boast about. While the speed of life increases, there is less and less time to enjoy the moment that you are in. The ability to appreciate the moment, the environment and yourself in it, isthe base for the bridge towards long term happiness of any human being.
I thought it was a wonderful idea, I wanted to give it a go as I believe in positivity and finding daily things to be happy about! I’m not so good at being in the moment, so I thought this might help me to be.
In 2015, I hosted the same challenge again on the 365 project as the previous one really encouraged me to find something good in every day that I could take a photo of and post. This time though, I resolved that I would share my photos and the story on a blog, which I started at the same time.
Have you ever tried a challenge like this?
I can highly recommend it!
Insights into the book
A while ago I shared snippets and insights from the book on this blog. You can read these from these links:

My 100 Day challenge
The stories were written during some disruptive times for Higher Education in South Africa, so many of the posts are musings on how I dealt with things beyond my control and others are purely about taking delight in every day. Think of this as a 100-day snapshot of my life.
That original blog has now disappeared, and the posts are no longer available on the web. This book is a two-part compilation of those stories and high-quality photographs from 2015 written for the blog. The story is shared in two parts: the first 25 days and then the next 75 days. You will have to read the book to find out why!
Share the journey with me!
