100 Happy Days

on May 5, 2014

I have just finished the 100 Happy Days Project

For this project the idea was to take a photo each day of something that made you happy. It didn’t have to be anything massive, it could be as simple as you like. The main point was to draw your attention to the happy things in your life, especially those that you take for granted.

Last year I did something similar, every day for the whole year, I posted a status of at least one ‘Good Thing’ of my day. I now do this using a blessing jar, which I can empty at the end of the year and look back on all the lovely moments. I found the photo project much more difficult, as although there is always at least one happy thing, not all of it is possible to take a photo of. For some occasions I used older photos I had taken and sometimes I found images I could use, rather than taking a photo myself. I found that not in all moments, do you think to take a photo, as when you’re in that moment, you’re living it, and not trying to make it still, just letting it happen.

Overall, I am pretty pleased with the results, and I would recommend you try this project if you haven’t already. All you need to do is sign up via the link I posted at the beginning of this blog. Then you use either Twitter or Facebook, post your photo each day with the hash tag #100happydays. You can also opt to do the project privately.

If you want to see all 100 of my photos you can visit my TwitPic account-

but here are 10 of my favourite photos from the project, so you can get an idea.


Day 1- I took part in the RSPB’s Big Garden Bird Watch. I took a few photos on my walk and this image of two collared doves was my favourite. (they came 9th in the survey by the way). I love watching birds.


Day 8- I took this on a walk through my favourite place Churchill Gardens. I try to go there at least once a week. I think this image catches the ‘secret garden’ feel of the place.


Day 50- this is me hugging a tree in Belfairs Woods. I think this photo sums me up quite nicely!


Day 6- this is a picture of my cat Roxie, being cute šŸ™‚


Day 92- a photo of Southend Seafront


Day 10- this is a photo of me reading an open mic poetry session for the first time.


Day 22- a photo of the first blossom I saw this year. (taken 16th feb)


Day 26- this is my friend Sue, reading a card all of us from the spiritual group had written for her.


Day 70- my certificate from the Crystal Healing course I did šŸ™‚


day 93- moonstones my friend Karen gave me.
