Like many people, I have fallen prey to the "I'll be happy when..." attitude. Before I used to believe that having certain things or being at a certain place professionally in life would make me happy. Thankfully, since then I have realised that neither of these will make anyone truly happy. Happiness is a choice.
To remind myself that happiness can come from the everyday, I'm taking part in the #100happydays challenge on my personal Facebook. Thus far, the challenge has helped me to find much more happiness in each day - simple because I am actively seeking it. I'd encourage anyone to take part and see how it makes a difference to your day to day life.
