I have noticed what makes me happy. (The four F's: family, friends, flowers, food. And dogs. Lots of dogs.) Well, this sounds pretty obvious, but it's fun to look back at the pictures and notice a common theme quite quickly.
I have been in a better mood. How could I not, when I started the challenge in Maui and now it's the most beautiful time of the year in Seattle!
I have realized how lucky I am to have the life I have. Life is great! I am in constantly reminded how beautiful this city is and everything around it.
I have become more optimistic. I think this challenge has also compelled me to say 'yes' more. I have since joined an Underdog kickball team, discovered a bocce ball court by my apartment, ran a 12k and an 8k, gone ziplining through a forest, and biked a 26 miler just because. I'm rarely ever sitting at home anymore!
I've also learned that I didn't need this challenge to become happy, but rather to realize that I have happy moments every day.
In case you were wondering, those who accept the challenge can either post on social media, or just send in a picture each day to firstname.lastname@example.org. I personally chose the latter, but as proof, the photo collage above are some of my favorite moments so far.
