I began my weekend morning at 9 AM and immediately after I freshened up, I went to the kitchen to get done some long overdue chores and prep up our lunch.

She wins
If she happens to lose.

Little moments in our mundane days make our day a happy day. When my life was engulfed with a lot of chaos a couple of months back, I practiced gratitude, a habit of seeking ‘happyness’ in the little things in life and acknowledging the people behind the happy moments. It got solace to my restless soul and happyness to my heart. Once again, I continue on THP, wherein I list down at least 5 things/ people/ incidents which made my day a “Happy” day which I call “The Happyness Project (THP)”Continue reading
