#100HappyDays: My Empty Canvas

What brings me back to this challenge after 3 unsuccessful and one successful attempt? 

Well, the last time I completed this challenge, my major takeaway was to smile, accept and embrace every situation in life. Somehow, the daily grind of life consumes us too much that we forget to live in the moment. The negativity around us is so much that we don't realize how they start effecting us mentally. 

Right now I should be content with my stagnant life, or as they say, an ideal life with a good family and a good paying job. I am content, yes. But am I happily content? 

You can never have all the aspect of your life sailing in the same sea. Some might be sailing in the most wild and turbulent sea while others are in a calmer space. I don't know if that is what happening to me right now, but I just want to be a li'l bit more positive at this point in time in my life. Also, this is the only way you have when you are not having many people to talk to!

Probably, my daily grind is making me forget my lessons I learnt  the last time from my #100HappyDays challenge. 

So, here I am again. I am going to add one picture for the next 100 days in the empty space below. And I really hope to start the next year in a more happy and positive way! 

One pretty amazing thing that the challenge website page says:
"It is not a happiness competition or a showing off contest. If you try to please / make others jealous via your pictures – you lose without even starting. Same goes for cheating."

So yes, I am doing anything to show off or to make anyone feel bad or good. Posting this on my blog is just a gentle reminder to myself that life is good! :)






I want to take my Alexa Rank to the next level with #MyFriendAlexa.

This is pretty good. All the best for the contest. Yes Life is Good and enjoy every moment. There are ups and downs in life - I call myself successful if I successfully tackle the challenges and move on. Thanks for sharing this post.

Roshan Radhakrishnan said...

oooh... this is a nice variation. Pics are too small though. how about making it 4 posts of 25 pics (or 5 posts of 20) for helping it load faster while also giving u the option to keep the size medium and adding captions to help u remember it years from now.

Sushmita Malakar said...

@shalz
I too wish the same! :)

Thank you for the visit :)

Sushmita Malakar said...

@Vaishali
Indeed! What a pitiful situation it is in today's world! We have to take challenges even to stay happy.

Thanks :)

Sushmita Malakar said...

@Keerthi!

Thank you so much and all the best to you too :)

Sushmita Malakar said...

@Delicious Recipes
Yes! But tackling any situation needs motivation. And I think I am lacking that self motivation to move ahead in life. Thank you for wishes :)

Sushmita Malakar said...

@Doc
I had the same thought in mind. But then I realised that this is just for me again. Also, this challenge, according to me, is about living in the moment. I might look back for motivation but probably never look back to these pictures in detail! :D

Sheethal Susan Jacob said...

I started once. But couldn't complete. I am proud og people who complete them. Because it's not easy to find a happy thing esp at your down phases. Good luck with your challenge. :)

Sushmita Malakar said...

@sheethal
Thank you so much!
I suggest that you should take this challenge when you are at your low. That is exactly when you need hope. :)

Mahak K said...

I had done this challenge a few years ago and it really does hanger your perspective on things. You learn to appreciate and find joy in the small things. I hope you feel the same way too. Good luck!

Sushmita Malakar said...

@Mahak
Thank you so much! :)
I love this challenge a lot. I might not have completed it successfully in the past, but nothing deters my determination :D

This is the first time I have taken up a blogging challenge and you are right, taking challenges help no matter one wins or loses.

The beat way to stay happy is being honest to yourself and that you ahhe done through this post. Challenges are a great motivator. We surprise ourselves at many points. Good luck!!

Deliciously Alive said...

I have attempted the 100 day challenge once. Though I did not complete it I did notice a big change in my perspective . Wish you good luck with it.

Mansi Laus Deo said...

I could never finish any such challenges. But congratulations for taking this up.

Sushmita Malakar said...

@Deliciously Alive
It surely does! A week into this challenge and my perspective towards things have changed. I take things lightly now and that is what I really needed!

Thanks for you visit :)

Sushmita Malakar said...

@Mansi
Thanks. But I really suggest that you take it up too! :)

Pratibha said...

I did this in start of 2015 I guess. Was a very good learning time. Now I missed the start of this but I am still trying to re use the lessons. Good luck to you.

Sushmita Malakar said...

@Pratibha
I actually felt that my lessons need to revised! I couldn't have thought of a better way but to take the challenge again!

Thank you so much :)

Nayantara said...

I've given up on 100 days so many times too. It makes me feel sadder that i have nothing to revel about. But then there are good days and bad. Every day doesn't have to be good. We just need to remember that this too shall pass

Sushmita Malakar said...

@Nayantara
And that is exactly what this challenge reinforces. Days pass by - happy or sad - that doesn't mean we forget to live! :)

Thank you so much for visiting my blog :)

GST Training Delhi said...

That is how it should be. All the best for 2018 :)
