If you've been following me on Instagram, you'd know that I successfully finished my #100happydays challenge this month!!! Yipeee!

I've proven that it's possible to be happy 100 days in a row. However, it's not as easy as I thought it would be. There were days when I felt like crap especially when I'm missing my husband (huhuhu), and there were days when life just seems mundane. Whenever an uneventful day comes to an end and I had nothing posted for the challenge, what I do is I stop, reflect, and simply try my best to find something that will bring back the joy in my heart. It was a great way to put a smile on my face at the end of each day. When I try to look closely around me, I become more appreciative of what I've got and more sensitive to the needs of others. For some reason, when I focus less on myself and more on others, I get less anxious about my own needs. Taking on this challenge, I learned to find happiness in the little things and to be grateful in all the blessings from above.

Here's  my top 10 happiest days! 

I realize how truly blessed I am with:

1. My marriage. Reunited with my husband. I read somewhere that everyone cannot be a princess, but you can find someone that can make you feel like a princess. I'm glad I found mine!  

2. Opportunity to travel. Wandered Japan with my favorite travel buddy!

3. My mom. For her birthday, I asked her what she wanted and her wish was my command. That's actually nothing compared to her raising me to be who I am today.

4. My sisters. Taking care of them and seeing them grow with grace brings me joy!

5. Family. One for all, all for one!
6. Friends. When you're down, and troubled, and you need a helping hand, and nothing, whoa nothing's going right. (sing with

7. Food. My sure comfort! Nomnomnom. Everytime I get irked by someone, I just tell myself, they must have skipped a meal. :P

8. Exercise. Scientifically, working out makes you happy... and sexy! lol

9. My creative outlet, my blog. Happy to share my sentiments and I've never thought that they actually value to others :)

10. Last but not the least, God. All these things are from Him, my source of joy!

All these things above are temporary and will pass but one thing I always keep in mind is true happiness is found in the paths of his commands. Psalm 119:35

Lord, help me to delight in the things that will bring me to eternal happiness.
