What makes you happy?

Five days ago I started a project called 100 happy days.
It's about sharing happy moments for 100 days in a's interesting how statistics say the 71% of partecipants failed to finish it, mainly for lack of time.
I am using Instagram since I don't want to clutter Facebook and I like this to be separated. I never used Instagram before anyway, so new medium for a new project!

Running again!!!
It might seem stupid. My roommate told me she doesn't understand it, she is always happy. Actually she is a happy and positive person 24/7...for me, things are different.
I find it easy to be in a good mood here, where I am living as a student again, making new friendship, learning something new every day in a wonderful city...but sometimes it is good to actually realize that you are happy. To feel it in your bones, to enjoy that feeling fully.

Pure bliss
I am finally able to communicate a little in this new language and that's the most exciting experience ever. New friendships from all over the world. It is so amazing how many more things you can learn from much your mind opens to different cultures and habits. It is fascinating.

I am happy.


  1. It's sad to think 71% of people were too busy to report happiness :( This sounds like an interesting project. Hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend, Sylvia :)

    1. Yeah that is something to think about...
      Thanks and Happy Easter to you also! :D

  2. Go for it! I'll keep my fingers crossed! Happy Easter!

  3. I am blessed with general happiness, and I appreciate that for some, it does not come so easily. I am super blessed to have my husband of 35 years in my company. He provides both a beautiful view of the world to me, and seen through his eyes, I am a better person than I suspect I would be without him. I think the poeple around us can really help our moods and attitudes and your roomie sounds great. Good luck to you on your joyful quest!

    1. What an amazing thought Marsha, thank you so much. I feel the same about my boyfriend and I guess I am working hard to be worthy of the consideration he has for me too :)
