Happiness – 101 Simple Things Challenge

Happy B and A

This morning I was contacted by Steph at ScaleSimple asking me to participate in a challenge that she had created.  A challenge? How could I resist?

The premise is simple (pun intended) share 101 things that make you happy. Steph believes, and I agree with her,  that listing 101 items will bring happiness. Not just as you write them but as you  look back upon it when things are not so happy.

There are only three simple rules

  • Write 101 simple things that make you happy

  • Tag 5 bloggers who you would like to invite to take part in the challenge

  • Mention ScaleSimple in your post.
