Project Happy: Days 411-420

A busy ten days!  The girls went back to school, I went back to seeing clients and supervisees and I got to grips with a new camera kindly lent to me by a photographer friend of mine after I left my camera at my office in London.  Despite the challenges of immense tiredness, complex-but-rewarding client sessions and a new…

Project Happy: Days 401-410

The second half of the Easter holidays provided us with some really lovely weather, so whilst my husband unfortunately had to work most of the time, the girls and I spent lots of quality time together having adventures and soaking up the Spring sunshine (I do love working for myself – I feel very lucky to…

Project Happy: Days 391-400

This instalment of #projecthappy encompasses the first half of the Easter holidays, so there have been lots of fun times with the girls. Plus, I’ve reached my 400th day of capturing joyful moments. I’m pretty proud of that.

Project Happy: Days 381-390

An up and down edition of #projecthappy.   Some days it was easy to find the joyful moments, and some days it was more difficult.  We’re all exceptionally tired at the moment and counting down the days to the Easter holidays so we can spend some quality time together.

Project Happy: Days 371 – 380

It seems fitting, as I begin the second year of this project, that the first post falls today on International Day of Happiness. The theme this year is ‘Connection’. The team behind the movement (Action for Happiness) are encouraging everyone to make one positive connection with someone today; to reach out and make new connections…

365 Days of Happy: Days 361 – 370

I did it! A whole year of happy moments captured in photos and documented on my blog.  I wasn’t sure if I could keep up the commitment (I’m a serial project-starter-and-non-finisher), but I have – for 365 days. In the grand scheme of things I recognise that it’s a relatively un-life-changing project on a global scale,…

365 Days of Happy: Days 351 – 360

Half term and the lead up to my Dad’s funeral form the foundations of this #365happydays post. I have had such contrasting emotions over the last ten days – I thought I would have to dig really deep to find the happy moments.  Some were a little harder to find than others and some appeared right…

365 Days of Happy: Days 341-350

These last ten days have been a blur.  I’ve been on automatic pilot for most of the time – doing what I need to do but not really being engaged or feeling connected with much of it.  There will be a blog post at some point to explain what’s happened to those of you who don’t…

365 Days of Happy: Days 331-340

The latest instalment of my #365happydays project. This has been the most difficult one yet.  In the evening of day 338 I got a phone call and just a few short hours later, in the early hours on Day 339 my world collapsed and I spiralled into complete shock and total devastation.  In all honesty I’m still…

365 Days of Happy: Days 321-330

This has been a tough ten days for many reasons, some of which I’m not ready to talk about yet.  Actively seeking out moments of happiness in the midst of it all has been the thing that’s kept me going when I’ve wanted to hide under the duvet and give up.  Here are the things…
