#100HappyDays

I'm sure you've seen this hashtag floating around on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.  I started noticing it a while ago and checked out the website out of curiosity.  The idea is that you take one photo of something that makes you happy everyday for 100 days and all kinds of warm fuzzy feelings will follow.  Naturally, it's right up my alley.

"twentieth street 100 happy days project"


So I signed up and started my 100-day happiness countdown on April 1st.  So far, I've been pretty good about taking photos . . . most days.  Sometimes I don't think to take a photo until after the moment has passed or if I do think of it in time, I don't always want to interrupt the moment for a photo.  I felt a little guilty about this at first.  Like, I -a photographer- should be especially good at remembering to take a picture of happy moments, right?  But then again, isn't that the point of the project anyway?  To let yourself get caught up in the little joys of daily life and relish those sweet, fleeting moments?  I'm still trying to be diligent about taking a daily photo - I have big dreams of ordering a little photo book with all 100 photos at the end of it.  And some days, I'm inspired to take more than one photo so I'm sure I'll hit that 100 number one way or another.  But thirty days into the project, I think I've learned something valuable already.  Sometimes just being in the moment is even better than capturing it.
