It’s 00.01am on January 1st 2015 and I’ve decided to change my life. I’m pretty average, I graduated in 2012 with a BA in English Literature and now I work 9am-6pm (+ all those extra hours that slip by unnoticed). I have a long term boyfriend I met at University, I’m a size 10 with a pretty average dress sense and long dark hair. I live at home, am in thousands of pounds worth of student debt, spend most of my money on travelling to work and, of course, clothes and make up, and if I’m honest to myself my perfect evening involves getting into bed in my pyjamas and dressing gown at around 8pm (when I get in from work), eating pizza, and watching reality TV. If you’re really honest you probably like the sound of that too, right? I’m Little Miss Average. But at 22, I’m just not ready to accept that and I’ve decided 2015 is the year to make the change. I’m not entirely sure how yet but if you fancy coming with me on this journey then I’m going to post on here every Thursday and Sunday. That brings me to the title of this blog, 100 ways to happy. Every week I’m going to try two new things to change my life and make me a happier person (52 weeks in a year so I’m giving myself 4 days off). Sometimes the things will be tiny, things that take 20 seconds to do, and sometimes things will be huge, things which take weeks of planning and months to execute. At this precise moment, I have no idea what’s going to happen, what shape this blog will take and how exactly I will get happy but I’m pretty determined. I used to be the sort of person who when they set their mind on it, they achieved it. Time to become that person again.
Every week, twice a week, I aim to change my life in some small way. Whether it’s something small, something new that I’ve never done before or something that makes me or someone else smile. Number one for the first of January (start as you mean to go on and all that)? Start this blog. Let’s see where this journey takes me.
Happy 2015, join me on my journey to go from Little Miss Average to Little Miss Happy.
