#100happydays (13/100)


Indi told me about this challenge where we're supposedly post a picture per day of the thing that makes us happy in that certain day. Sort of skeptical about it and I obviously doubt myself since I've taken like at least ten challenges like those in Tumblr for the past three years, but today is the fourteenth day and I've actually been enjoying this challenge if I do say so myself.

"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, is the base for the bridge towards long term happiness of any human being. 71% of people tried to complete this challenge, but failed quoting lack of time as the main reason. These people simply did not have time to be happy. Do you?"

As stated on their website, they aim to make people realize of how the teeny-tiniest things in life really matters, like that perfectly blended caramel frappuccino with that perfect amount of whipped cream that barista made for you sometimes can even be better than that top you splurged your allowance on when you didn't really like it, just because your friends are all wearing it. You can't deny the fact that you've done it, you know, knowing that by buying that certain thing did not make yourself 100% happy, but you're "happy" that you now have that same thing like everybody, or you're "happy" cause you'll be able to brag about it to your friends while they tell you how "cool" it is. 

I watched About Time a few months ago, which is: A) One of the rom-com movies staring none other than Rachel McAdams, and B) One of the movies that made me bawl my eyes out for a good fifteen minutes. If you haven't seen it, then you probably should watch it because you're already missing out one of those really touching and heart-felt movies which you can easily relate to. I won't go out and spoil the ending for you or whatever, but I'm going to tell you what I learned after watching it. So on the last scene, the main character had to go through a really bad day and everything didn't go out like he planned it to be. Then he rewind the day (Might as well tell you that there is a bit of sci-fi in it, but still really relatable). Then he started living the day happily, and basically focusing on the good things that's happening and the little things that made him smile, rather than to be sad about the bad things. So basically what I learned is that everyday, every single day we're going to face, just be thankful and happy about it. Really, I mean like don't let it get to you. Think about Mr. Chow saying "But did you die?" to your face when you start to be sad about your day that probably isn't going so well for you. That does the trick for me. So for thirteen days and counting, I've been more than thankful for all the seconds that I have. No matter how bad it is going, eventually I'd find something that made me happy.
