March in Pictures #Photography Challenge #marchinpictures

What does happiness mean to you? For a long time I thought it was something I needed to obtain, but after many years of self-work and personal development, I realised that happiness came from within.

With this awareness, I tried to discover ways to enhance those feelings of joy and contentment in everyday life. I guess this is why I enjoy taking part in challenges so much as they push me out of my comfort zone and help me to live in the moment.

In January I shared my Daily Tasks to Improve Your Life series, and in February I shared a Self-Improvement Challenge. March is a month where we start to think about warmer weather and spring cleaning. We witness the marvel of new beginnings in the shoots unfurling from the ground. The days are lighter and longer, and people start to smile more as they soak up the spring sunshine.

A few years ago I took part in the 100 Happy Days Challenge on Instagram. It’s a wonderful way of noticing what’s going on around you and learning to live in the moment. The rules are simple: share one photograph every day for 100 days that makes you happy and add the #100HappyDays hashtag.

For March I wanted to embrace this challenge but offer up some structure. With the 100 Happy Days Challenge, you are in charge of what you post, and there were a few days when I took a random picture of the cat or the TV because I hadn’t done anything worth remembering.

I thought it might be a fun task to follow a plan. So, below you’ll find a month’s worth of photography topics.

The challenge is this: take a picture every day on the appropriate topic and either share it on your Facebook page, Twitter feed, Instagram account, or blog. Add the hashtag #marchinpictures (MARCH IN PICTURES). Feel free to tag me in on any of my platforms or add your images in the comments on each of my weekly blog posts.

How Do You Cope With The Tough Times? #SelfHelp

How do you cope with the tough timesWe all experience tough times at certain points on our life journey. This may be due to health issues, financial problems, grief, pain, or loss. However, it’s how we deal with them that defines us.

Too many people disappear into victim mode when presented with a challenge. Whereas others find an inner strength that helps them forge through the anguish and hopefully come through these tough times with more wisdom, clarity, and vigour than ever before. Through my books and blog, I hope to share with people all my tough times – the gritty side of life – and then show my readers how I was able to emerge from the pain as a better version of myself.
