100 Days of Happiness – Day 63

It’s easy to find sadness each day, but to find a moment of happiness is difficult. Last year, I couldn’t bring myself to finish the 100 Days of Happiness challenge. This year, I am more determined to finish it — Counting down to 2016 with Happiness!


The Happiness of Getting a Handwritten Letter

100 Days of Happiness – Day 63


I remember a writing exercise that my English teacher gave for holiday homework in seventh grade. We had to write a letter to her on an inland letter and post it. And she’d post one back to us. Though I haven’t written a lot of letters on inland letter cards, I love getting letters from friends, and am happy when I get one as well. Today, I’m happy seeing a letter from a friend I’m yet to meet. She had asked on FB if anyone would volunteer for getting a letter from her, and I’d told I’d love to. And there’s a big smile on my face as I read it.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
