The Pollyanna 30 Day Challenge

So the other day I spotted a post on lovely blog The Pollyanna Plan about a 30 day happiness challenge, which sounded right up my street. The challenge started on Tuesday and works through a private Facebook group, where each day members write a post or share a photo about something they’re thankful for.

This idea is obviously nothing new; I did the 100 Happy Days challenge last year, and there are always similar mini-challenges going round on Facebook. And they’re all great, because anything that makes you focus on the positive, even if you’ve had a rubbish day, can only be a good thing.

But what I particularly like about this challenge is that it’s not just a bunch of people talking into a void; it’s a community, with members from all over the world. So each time you post, it’s not just you who gets to enjoy your happy thing; other people can too. I don’t only visit the group to do my daily post – I go to read everyone else’s updates and share in their positivity, whether it’s sharing achievements, celebrating loved ones or just finding the good in a traffic jam. And even though most of us are strangers, we all support each other, not just in the happy things but in the harder stuff as well.

And if that all sounds a bit cheesy… I don’t care 😉

The challenge is underway, but it’s never too late to join in – so visit The Pollyanna Plan for more details and come join the fun!

And watch this space, because I’m working on an idea for a little challenge of my own… 😉
