Well, it’s my favourite time of the month again… BLOGGING TIME. This month ive decided to do something different, #20HappyDays!
During summer 2014 I decided to take part in a social media phenomenon called #100HappyDays.
This is an initiative which promotes positive mental health and makes you start noticing things that make you happy every day. Each day I posted a picture on Instagram with the attitude that “not every day is good, but there is good in every day”. And although it sounds silly it totally changed my attitude and I was definitely more positive and happier on day 100 than I was on day 1.
So for this month, till my blog was due on the 20th of February I took a picture of something good in each day! And he is the results……
Super bowl Sunday or pancake Sunday? The super bowl halftime show made the lack of sleep that we got that little bit better! The long bus journey is always worth it when I’m reunited with my Galway family on a Sunday evening.
Nothing quite beats a hot water bottle on a sick day, especially when you’re four hours from home!
a skype date with my best friend. A well overdue catch up!
living 4 hours from home can be tough sometimes, but when your sister is able to call over for dinner any day of the week it makes it that little bit easier.
the first week anniversary of Aoifes hard cast. Of course its pink, and of course I had to sign it. Mammy Sarah xxx
what’s better than chocolate cake? VEGAN CHOCOLATE CAKE! Baking at 2am has its perks.
spending my weekends with these two is enjoyable… most of the time!
Bronagh brought so much happiness to Galway when she returned after 3 weeks! This is one of the most inspiring and strong friends I have met since I’ve moved to Galway!
Fitness, fitness, fitness! Training is easier when you’re doing it with a friend!
Becoming a make-up artist/hairdresser for the evening, doesn’t she look like a princess??
Realising how lucky I am to have friends like these! They made the house look just magical for my birthday.
Hitting Galway city for some early birthday celebration with my favourite people!
Look who came to Donegal for the weekend? YAY
MY BIRTHDAY! Spending my actual birthday with my wonderful family and friends!
Chocolate biscuit cake… need I say more?
A beautiful walk to beautiful Salthill!
Rag week – the best Tuesday ever… DONEGAL TUESDAY! (And pancake Tuesday)
Ash Wednesday in the most beautiful cathedral I have ever seen!
Last day of Rag Week, partying!!!
My favourite time of the month… finishing up blog and sending it off for publishing! I am forever grateful to The Michaela Foundation for this amazing opportunity!
So there they are, my #20HappyDays!
