100 Happy Days: Challenge Completed!

As of last week, I can say that I have officially completed the 100 Happy Days challenge! It took me a while to write this post because I wanted to take some time to process the end of this challenge and how I felt about it.

On the website, it states that:

People successfully completing the challenge claimed to:
– Start noticing what makes them happy every day;
– Be in a better mood every day;
– Start receiving more compliments from other people;
– Realize how lucky they are to have the life they have;
– Become more optimistic;
– Fall in love during the challenge

While I can’t claim to have started receiving more compliments from other people or falling in love during the challenge, I can say that I definitely took more time appreciating the little things that made me happy. No matter how bad of a day I was having, there always seemed to be something I was thankful for, and it documenting it was a nice way of reminding me of this fact.
The one thing I did notice was how my photographic creativity improved throughout the course of the challenge. I found that I was inspired every day by the small things around me, and I began to take pride in finding new ways to capture these little things to tell a larger story.
Here are the last photos from my final days of the challenge, along with some of my favourites from the past 100 days:

It’s funny how, looking back, all the pictures that made me the happiest are the ones with the people I love or the ones that remind me of the people I love. I can’t wait to print all these photos off and and see what we can make with #100HappyDays.
