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 6:

Some days I find myself doubting my talents and that's rough. But somehow, everything always works out, and just when I least expect it, someone comes along and reminds me that I am enough. 

Thank you Martin Olson, for taking a chance on my work and then being kind enough to tell me (from Facebook about my short story, KAFE CASTRO): "Well-crafted fluid funny intense pro high IQ writing for sure. I really loved it and look forward to read more when I'm past this deadline. Congrats on reaching a point when everything you write is quality. Very bold confident work, really loved it." 
As I worked on my new book today, these words kept me going. It made me happy to think he laughed as he read KAFE CASTRO. Making people laugh is one of my greatest joys.
