What the Happynesshub has taught me in the past 21 days: happiness is an inside job. Don’t assign anyone else that much power over your life. You have to learn to make yourself happy before anyone can me you happy.
When I joined the 21 Days to Happiness, I didn’t join the process because I wanted to become happy/happier. I joined the Happynesshub to see if the process could improve my happiness when I wasn’t feeling 100% myself.
Throughout my journey I have learnt how to focus on the positive aspects of my life. One of my favourite task out the 21 days, had to be the 24 hours without Internet/social media. We live in a generation where everyone’s heads are down looking into their iPads, Tablets and phones, we forget to look up and appreciate the beautiful world we live in. I have started to use my phone less and really appreciate time with loved ones because memories last forever.
Overall I wouldn’t say my happiness number hasn’t improved much, I would just say I have learnt how to be happy when the world is against you.
“Hi, my name is Gifty. I’m a 20 something year old living in London. I spend most of my days working in the TV industry and most of my nights reading fashion magazine and blogs.
I have never been an unhappy person but sometimes you just need encouragement to keep you going through the good times and when things don’t appear to be going so well. So I have decided to join the 21 days of happiness to see if the whole process could help me through my good and bad days.”
