Can you be happy for 100 days in a row?
I found a really interesting thing one day and I thought I have to share this. Maybe you saw or heard before but I guess it is not too popular in Hungary where actually people should do it. 100happydays. The essential is: do something every day during 100 days what it makes you happy. In this busy life so easy to lose happiness and the longing for it. People always find excuse why they don’t have time to do things what it brings pure happiness to the weekdays. This initiative is intense and it should change many people thinking. Now you can read a short story about the guy who had this incredible idea.
Hi, my name is Dmitry Golubnichy. My friends call me “alien”, because I have a no nationality passport, or “shchochki”, for cheeks and constant smiling. In fall 2013 I tried to help myself to bring my happiness back but happened to help the whole world. One thing lead to another and in the chase of a better life the lack of snow for skiing in Swiss Alps, only 35 ticks in my visited country list, only 55 sqm in my apartment in central Zurich, not enough of career progression opportunities in one of the world’s biggest companies suddenly became determinants of my happiness. I went to my hometown and tried sharing my ‘first world-problems’ with childhood friends, but faced a group of content people who are happy because they still the same job they got after high school, they are still together with their high school girlfriends, who are now their wives and mothers of their children, and they gather for the same beer every week with the same people at the same good old bar. I came back home and promised to myself that – if those guys can be happy with what they have – then I should be to and I will be able to find at least 1 little thing to be happy about for next 100 days. To increase chances that I will actually finish this personal challenge, I made posts public over social network with #100happydays hashtag. On day 12 my friends started wondering what it is all about and if they can join the challenge. As days passed, more and more people were jumping in on board the challenge and I felt more and more like Forrest Gump on his crazy run. But only on Dec 30 when I put this website live and 3000 people registered in one evening, I understood there is a bigger crowd waiting to join the run. At the moment, the challenge has been taken by more than 1 500 000 people from 220 countries and territories around the world, and I have quit my job to inspire more people to choose happier living.
If you found interesting to be happy for the next 100days now is the best time to start. Bring happiness to 2016. You can join the group and read more about it here!
