September was full of happiness

Well September has been and gone and it was well and truly full of happiness from all the photos shared on the event page. Thanks to everyone who participated. Thanks for being a part of my photo experiment and thanks for sharing with all of us! Hopefully this made everyone stop and think about being happy at least for a little while each day. I know I spent most of each day paying attention to all the things that were making me happy no matter how big or small, just so that I would remember to take a photo!

I noticed from all the pics that were shared that there are five main parts of life that make us happy - people, places, animals, food and stuff!


People make us happy for obvious reasons. Its human nature to want to be accepted, to share and to be involved. Interacting with other people (friends, family, co-workers) fulfills all of these things and you cant help but be happy.


There are so many beautiful places all around us if you stop and look. Nature was definitely a big source of happiness during September. The colours, the smells, the beauty of it all. It just makes you want to smile and be grateful for being able to enjoy it.


Animals are a continuous source of joy and happiness whether they are pets or wild. There are many reasons my animals make me happy - the look on their faces, the funny mannerisms they have and the fact that they love me back. A glimpse of a wild animal is just as exciting.


Who doesn't love food?! Just the thought of it makes me happy, no wonder why it featured so much in the photos. I'm salivating just looking at them again....


Finally, stuff. I know were not meant to measure ourselves by possessions and all that, but sometimes stuff just makes you happy - however frivolous it is. A good book, your favourite outfit, some nice jewellery. They are all simple sources of happiness and enjoyment.

These are only a few of the gorgeous, fun, amazing photos that were shared. To see all of them check out the photos tab on my facebook page.

I hope they bring you as many smiles as they brought me.

If anyone has any other ideas for photo projects or would like to do this again another month let me know.
