I'm probably setting myself up here with all the goals I've been setting here lately. I'm no good with them - I mean I get to some of them eventually but really I am horrible. But hey, there's a thing called life & it gets in the way when you're trying to plan..so there's that. For example I have the Four Simple Goals I'd like to set & complete each month for 2014 now I have this little Instagram challenge? What am I thinking!
This year I want to be better about posting things that make me happy. Guess what - I'm a complainy/grumpy kind of person if you'll let me be. I am always up for a woe is me session. If you want to complain about things & just be an all out downer, I'm for it. And if you try to cheer me up or offer me advice when I'm complaining to you, you're missing the point - I just want to complain & I want you to agree with me. ugh, it's so annoying..just let me be a grump! But, honestly it's no fun being grumpy & complaining all the time so I want to start appreciating things more...even the little things. Like the day I came back from my vacation I was expecting a lot of stress from work - but it was actually a nice day & I appreciated it!
I try to do this everyday but so far it's been a few times a week. I set an alarm on my phone & sometimes I ignore it & sometimes I type out my three great things. This project isn't to be too serious - most of the time I'm happy that I didn't fall clearing the snow off my car or that there's a TJ Maxx going in near our Khols. Sharing things that just went right during the day or during the week has made me a happier person. The app I use is called Phoster but you could use any sort of app that lets you add text over photos then I just post to Instagram.
So I've been doing this little project for a while now, posting every few days or so & tagging with the hashtag #ThreeGreatThings so I can keep up with my photos through the year. If you want to join in, please do! Let me know so I can find your Three Great Things!
What are your Three Great Things? Any small things that make you happy day to day?
