Week #104 – 104 Ways to Spread Happyness!

Greetings Happyness Tribe — and welcome to WEEK #104!!!

Two years ago our world changed forever.  And — as I’ve told you before — as friends, neighbors, colleagues, co-workers, service-providers, professionals, and other acquaintances lined up in their own distress and sadness to pay their respects, I recognized immediately that we were not alone.

You had lost someone, too.

Rob was important to us all…each in our own special way.

And so, I pledged to deliver a little dose of him every Friday morning via this blog — along with a little challenge to keep things going.  SpreadHappyness was born because I believed Rob’s legacy was his natural ability to spread happiness to anyone who crossed his path — and I didn’t think that had to die with him.  I wanted to carry the torch forward — because cancer wasn’t the only thing that could spread.  I knew happiness could, too!

To celebrate the two-year anniversary of this blog — here is a rundown of the 104 ways we have Spread Happyness from the beginning!  Have a favorite?!  I’d love to hear about it!
