I decided to participate, thinking it would be a quick and easy project. Little did I know just how tricky it would be some days to find something to write down.
Here's my list...

So there it is.
I was surprised that some days I struggled to find something positive to write down. I think in the rush that is my life I don't take enough time to think of the things that make me happy, or that i am grateful for. And that's sad...
So I will be continuing the project for myself, taking the time each day to look for the positives, because they are there, I just don't pay enough attention.
What makes you happy?
