Visiting Happy

Recently, I stumbled upon an interesting article: Can You Be Happy For 100 Days In A Row? At first I thought, Of course I can! What a ridiculous question! but then I read further. The phrase Every day submit a picture of what made you happy! jumped out and tackled me before I could navigate away. As the reality of the commitment the site was asking me to make sunk in, I realized that I couldn't even name one thing that made me happy in the past week. Except for sleep. Being able to shut off the stress of the day by simply closing my eyes made me downright ecstatic. I figured I'd better get on this stat.

I will be posting on my own site, in my own way. Sometimes I will share a picture, but other times it may be an anecdote or just a phrase. Every day, for at least 100 days, I will share something that made me happy - really happy.

This is my journey to happiness: 

DAY 1:

My family and I went to Muhlenberg College to see a performance of SPAMALOT. My daughter invited her boyfriend to come and he happily accepted. They are both starting college in the fall - he will be going to Potsdam and she to Muhlenberg. They are two wonderful young adults enjoying each others' company, and soon they will be doing great things with their lives. It made me very happy to see them smiling and enjoying the day. I hope they have as great a college experience as I did - except they should probably make sure they get to more classes than my college self did.
