50 Happy Things 2018: Bloggers Unite to Flood the Internet With Gratitude

STOP THE PRESSES! Just when you thought it was too late to join the 4th annual #BloggersUnite for #50HappyThings challenge, I’ve gone and changed the deadline. Yes, you read that correctly; there’s more time to be happy and grateful! In fact, until the end of January.

You’re wondering why? I had a deadline (chosen a bit arbitrarily) and all, so why up and change the game now, when it’s come and gone? Well, it’s easy: 1) There have been some wonderful new blog posts added, just in the past couple of days. That makes me think that other bloggers will see those ones and be dying to join in. Who am I to keep more gratitude from flowing?
2) It’s a happy thing to share gratitude. Positivity begets more positivity, and who am I to keep us all from enjoying more positivity, when heaven knows we need it!

So, I’ve extended the deadline until the end of January. You’ve got another chance to join this happy party; so do it! Trust me, once you start typing out your list, you won’t believe how wonderful you feel. If you read a couple of the posts already added, pretty much every blogger says that: they’re so glad they did it. And you will be happy too. So, don’t wait; don’t put it off any longer, because this deadline will be the final deadline. I’m not going to extend the deadline again, despite all #1 and #2 just provided. Now, go forth and set timers!



Last year I opted out on New Year’s resolutions and decided to go with intention. It wasn’t an ideal year, and this year I decided to wait until after the New Year and focus on gratitude; it’s always timely.

For the fourth year in a row, this is an opportunity to hit pause and focus on all the good things that each of us has in our lives. The holiday season has a way of rushing in, every year, and making it hard to remember that throughout the year, there are blessings. There are so many things that bring joy, so many happy things; yet it’s easy to find to lose sight of this fact, as we manage busy lives.

In 2014 I followed in the footsteps of Jen over at Jenny’s Lark, and wrote a list of 50 things (in 10 minutes) that I was grateful for…

  1. In coffeehouses and restaurants in our area (Louisville, Ky.) some patrons I know or with whom I am acquaintaned are autistic or otherwise socially impaired, and they are welcomed as customers and friends. This frequently was not the case years ago. I helped raise three autistic spectrum children as s caregiver in the 1990s and I know how they and others have benefited from the acceptance they have won. All people are better off when we accept people as they are. Thanks for inviting us to share these positive observations. This is s great idea.


    • I couldn’t agree more, Brian. There have been a lot of big changes for persons on the spectrum, and it’s really wonderful to see. Acceptance, across the board, of people from many walks of life, makes us all richer as a village. Thanks so much for stopping by to read my post, and share your thoughtful feedback.
