A couple of years ago, Dana over at Pretty Purple Princess issued a challenge to the blogosphere for the month of August. It was called the Happiness Challenge and for the month of August, you were challenged to post something positive or something that made you happy or made you smile, etc. each day in your blog.
I've joined in the August Happiness Challenge each of the last couple of years and really enjoyed it. And yes, a lot of my posts about things that make me happy can be the same from year to year (such as, there will inevitably be on that declares it's on x-number of days until UT football kicks off, thank heavens!). But it's still a lot of fun and a great way to remind ourselves of the good things in our lives and the many blessings we have.
So, I'll issue the challenge again this year to anyone who wants to participate. You don't even have to post daily about the things that make you happy. But I encourage you to take up the challenge and agree to post once, twice, three times a week about the things that bring joy and happiness to you.
And if you're particpating, leave a comment to let me know.
