Over the past year I have been finding myself becoming increasingly preoccupied with things that make me unhappy.
Whether it is being paid less than everybody I know, struggling with crippling self-doubt or simply not being able to source a reasonably priced Airbnb in freakin’ Cadiz.
I know, there are starving children in Africa and I am just another millennial with a swag bag full of first world problems.
Somebody break out the violins.
But I want to make a change, I want to challenge myself to be really bloody happy.
So, I googled ‘happiness challenge’ and found this guy:

Yeah, it goes on for a bit but the basic premise is pretty simple – do things that make you happy. Little things. And hopefully, eventually, these little things will be enough.
I guess all any of us really wants is happiness.
Whether it’s swaddled in that promotion, that relationship or buying that house – that is just semantics.
So, starting today I am challenging myself to find happiness for 100 whole days.
And fingers crossed, the rest will be history.
Wish me luck, join me and, if you like, cheer me on… (https://twitter.com/LucyDannanAsp)
