Being happy (or not) is always a choice.
As I was thinking about my third entry into the Gratitude Challenge being co-hosted by Debe Maxwell, CRS and Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland, I remembered the 100 Happy Days series I wrote on ActiveRain in 2016. I went back and read a few of them and am so thankful they were still there in the archives of ActiveRain. They brought back a lot of nice memories and are just another testament to how easy it is to find things to be happy about and grateful for.
Although I joined AR back in 2006, I ended up taking a several year hiatus during my husband's illness and after his passing. I came back in earnest in 2016 when I published 395 posts. Many of the people who I followed (and followed me) in the early years were gone.
So, when I came back I didn't have much of a following and didn't get many comments but I enjoyed writing them anyway. Over time, I've been able to engage and enjoy a fun group of those I enjoy following and who follow me. I am very thankful for that.
It's been fun going through some of my old posts, which always bring a smile to my face. I've made a few changes to my posts since then like adding a quote that applies to each post. I also try to frame most of my photos now which I hope adds a little visual appeal to each post.
Since I didn't have much of a Following back then, maybe I'll reshare a few of my 100 Happy Days posts over the next few weeks. Consider yourself warned! :-)
