#100HappyDays Challenge Day 20

#100HappyDays Challenge Day 20 says to share a secret.
When you have too many confident thoughts weighing on your mind, you experience stress and burden. Talking and sharing your thoughts (and secrets) can relieve stress.

My secret is my desire to successfully build a few streams of income. What is your secret? If you’ve blogged or written #100HappyDays Challenge Day 20, please leave a comment with your link.

#100HappyDays Challenge Day 19

#100HappyDays Challenge Day 19 says to bask in the sun and let your body make Vitamin D and those happy feelings.

I can sit in the sun during cold winter and spring, but I can’t do this during summer because it would be too hot. During winter and early spring, my family would be telling me to sunbathe (with clothes on of course). The cold temperature was stronger than the weak rays of sunshine.

Terrapins like to sun bathe sometimes. They take turns to climb onto the shell of another terrapin. A terrapin likes to keep dry on higher ground when it sunbathes. That’s why they climb on top of another terrapin. They are amphibians (cold blooded) and take the temperature of their surroundings. Sunbathing is their only way of warming up. They don’t crawl much in very cold weather. They sort of freeze and keep still. I like to think that terrapins should participate in this #100HappyDays Challenge Day 19.

I have a post on terrapins, with photos and art. Just type in the word “terrapin” in the search box and hit return.

#100HappyDays Challenge Day 18

100HappyDays Challenge Day 18 has a prompt saying to dust your top shelves. Because you know, the old proverb says cleanliness is next to godliness.

Cleaning is not exactly my kind of therapy but I need to do it periodically. I seldom dust my shelves because they’re inside my wardrobe and I don’t like to drag out my ladder. I have to stand on a ladder to reach those shelves.

I mop the floors of my small, dingy apartment every week. It feels pleasant walking on clean floors.

Spring cleaning. Then I remembered I hated the idea of house guests.

#100HappyDays Challenge Day 17

For today’s 100HappyDays Challenge Day 17, its about chatting up strangers. I don’t think it is a good idea. Men and women usually desire more from you. Here are some anecdotes.

I was on a bus returning home from grocery shopping. A woman started talking to me.

Woman 1: What’s that in your shopping bag?

Me: Its frozen instant meal.

Woman 1: Do you do your own housework?

Me: Yes.

Woman 1: I’m on my way to see a new potential employer. I work as a domestic house maid and I’m getting a transfer. My boss asked me to see my new boss.

Me: Oh.

Woman: My boss’ small daughter bit me.

Me: Oh.

Woman: Do you need a house maid?

Me: No. I can’t afford one.

Woman: I can cook and clean. My boss said I’m very good at cooking.

Me: Good. You can make your new boss happy. This is my stop. Bye.

P.S. Woman 1 wanted me to hire her. She wanted more than a companion to talk to on this bus. I wasn’t happier than before I started talking, but I became wiser.

#100HappyDays Challenge Day 16

The book says to ride your bike really fast. I can’t cycle nor do I have a motorbike to ride. I ride in bus, taxi,or train. Today, I’m going to take a bus ride. I like sitting on the upper deck of a bus. I don’t mind if the bus moves slowly. The aerial view is superb on the upper deck. It makes me feel happy.

#100HappyDays Challenge Day 14

Day 14 of #100HappyDays Challenge says to donate something. Well today, I have to visit a supermart that is a collection of small stores from all over a continent. Its a temporary exhibition with small booths to sell a selection of wares to promote unique crafts and everyday household items. There is a booth to promote humanitarian outreach and I intend to donate some money for the cause.

I like to see cultural objects and marvel at the rich heritage of various groups of people who sacrifice time to make them.

#100HappyDays Challenge Day 12

Day 12 of the #100HappyDays Challenge says to dance to music. Currently, my favorite song is Enchanted (Taylor Swift). Its not a “dance-able” tune. I like the lyrics of this song about two star crossed, never-was romantic hopefuls. The song comforts me.

#100HappyDays Challenge Day 11

Day 11 of the #100 HappyDays Challenge says to introduce two people to enable them to network.

Presently, I’m unable to actively connect two people. I can recount what I did in August to help a woman find a connection. She wanted to know which educational pathway to recommend to her daughter. I recommended an intermediary who connects students from high school, to an institute who mediates towards varsity education.

Its up to the people to decide if they see a good fit in that network.
