The ‘incidental happy’: 14 of #100happydays

Fourteen. Yes, that’s where we are. Fourteen ‘down’, just a measly EIGHTY-SIX to go. I found it a little more of a struggle this week. Long days desk-bound did not readily lend themselves to happy moments. That said, there were still a couple of easy gets:

  • Open Air Cinema, my absolute favourite Sydney summer thing to do;
  • return to netball after the summer holidays; and
  • passing the Eddie Vedder sign on the beautiful State Theatre board (watch for it to make an encore on about day 17);

The others? Truthfully, they were snatch and grabs. Fleeting moments, conceived in desperation rather than inspiration but … I realise that’s ok. ‘Incidental happy’ is equally authentic (and probably more important) than the orchestrated variety.

What sort of happy have you found this week? The incidental? or the orchestrated?
