Hey all,

I keep seeing challenges on the internet. As a non-Gen-Z-er, I find many of them weird and out of my comfort zone. (Not saying that they are all bad. Just not up my alley.) But, there are some really positive ones, like posting glow up photos, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and the #NoMakeupSelfie. On that note, today I am creating a new challenge. I’m going setting a 5 minute timer. In that time, I’m going to write as many happy things as I can. Once I am finished, I will type them up onto this post and add some related pictures. Since I have mental illnesses, this will be a bit of a challenge. The past few posts have been heavy. I’m hoping this will help get me into a more positive mindset!

If you are up to it, challenge yourself to do the same.

With all the negative things in the world right now, I would really love to see a wave of happiness spread across the internet. Maybe they are small things. Maybe they are big things. But, we need happiness to help us get through the hard times.

Let’s get the ball rolling.





Here is my list:

    1. It was fun to come up with this list. The only plus side to my brain going a mile a minute is that I came up with a lot. Haha.
      I thoroughly enjoy doing escape rooms. It lets me solve puzzles, riddles, and work the logic muscles in my brain. Plus, in the escape rooms I go to, there is always an emergency key to get out if there is a problem.
      Thank you for taking the time to read and comment! 🙂
