I’ve been seeing a lot of this hashtag lately and while I must admit hashtags are not my thing, I love this. I distinctly remember reading about the idea that each day there is at least one thing that makes us happy— from the most mundane occurrences like getting a streak of green traffic lights to getting a postcard from someone you haven’t seen in so long— and that if we write down this one happy thing a day, we end up with days upon days of happy memories and we realize just how #blessed life is. I’ve been doing this every night since I read that in secondary school, and it’s been five little leather-bound journals and counting.
During the last few months of adjusting to PhD life in Rome particular, it has definitely come in handy! #foreverhappy
