Happy Challenge

In the wake of the Government shutdown and the sort-of-launched Affordable Care Act, I have noticed that there is very little enjoyable things on the news feeds of any of my social network sites. Even hanging out with my friends eventually leads to the depressing topic of over 800K people out of work. Minus those 400K who are back to work….It still means that the livelihood of many people has been put on hold until some unannounced date.

This Happy Challenge should probably be something we do everyday. Especially now because everyone seems so unhappy with things–regardless of your side. Add something happy to your life each day. Whether it be in conversation or any social network you belong to. If you update your status message a few times a day or share links with friends let one of those shares be happy.
Restrictions on this Happy Challenge? Really not much. It has to be something that makes you happy. It could be pictures of animals too adorable for words such as those found on Cuteoverload.com.
It could be that hilarious video that had you snorting milk through your nose:

Or, perhaps you would like to share a new favorite recipe that is just to die for, like this recipe for Oven Fried Mushrooms I found on Cooking Tip Of the Day.

You can share personal stuff or just about anything. Make sure it is something that makes you happy and isn’t related to all this jacked up stuff that the news media is fully covering for us.

You’ve been challenged. Share something happy.

What made you happy today?
Please share with me, I do need more happy on my blog/facebook/tumblr/twitter/instagram/greader/reddit/inbox.


Z is for Zipline

The first time I ever did this I was in Costa Rica. There is nothing quite like zipping into a huge cloud of mist and having no clue where it ends. We also got covered in rain after each cloud too.

I am completely freaked by exposure/heights so, the first platform I basically had to be pushed off. I screamed and once I stopped being so scared, began laughing. Or at least I remember myself being that smooth.

If you have never been to a zipline then now is your time. These are really catching on in popularity (at least around here). If safety concerns you then look into the certifications required, call up the businesses and ask how their facility and staff meet standards.
Then….DO IT.

So much fun!!
