Today marks the kick off of another “100 days of happiness” challenge. OMG! Like you should totes like do it with me. We could be like happiness BFFs!!

Stop rolling your eyes at my valley girl moment. I’d seriously love you to join me because really, what’s better than focusing on happiness for 100 days? One hundred days from now, we will be close to saying goodbye to 2014. I think focusing on happiness for the next 3+ months is just what I need. I’m willing to bet you could use an infusion of happiness as well. Heck, I think it’s what everyone needs.

To be honest, I’ve had a stretch of days (ok, weeks) where I haven’t been feeling super happy. I have been putting my best foot forward and posting about happier things but inside, I must say, it’s kinda gray. I’m at a crossroads. I know what I want for my life. I can see it. I dream about it constantly and it isn’t in just one area of my life. I need major change on several fronts. I can see it just across the divide yet, I am here afraid to jump.

I know better. I know I should be stepping (or leaping) out on faith. I have a plan but these days, more often than not, I find myself to-do-listing my dreams and spending all of my energy on the things that aren’t on the list. At the end of each day, I am so wiped out from stressing over things I’m not passionate about that I don’t have time for the things that will change my life for the better. I nail myself to the wall at work and when I get home, my brain is fried. I grab dinner and plop down on the couch or the bed and zone out by reading or watching TV.

So, I’ve decided this month marks the start of a boot camp phase (the kick ass phase) in my life.  What’s the plan? Well, I’m starting with the 40 day Fresh Start meditation I posted about last week. I’m layering the 100 Days of Happiness on top of that. I’m also kicking off a two week juice detox (weekends will be free but not a free for all). Once I get my mind and body clear, maybe I will be ready to push my dreams into overdrive. Something has to shake loose. It would be awesome if you’d join me and post about your experiences in the comments section. I’m curious to know how you guys are breaking through. I believe with focus, we can change our lives and change the world. Here’s to a fresh start!
