I have been doing Happiness Tuesdays for a year and a half now. When I first thought of it, I enjoyed finding beauty in everything around me, but as the months soared from one year to the next, it became more and more challenging. Without the finances to travel outside of my immediate neighborhood, a neighborhood that I think we can all agree has been photographed to death, it has become an exercise in frustration.
Earlier in the week, admittedly after my 15 year old had commented that my last Happiness Tuesday had appeared to be phoned in, I asked myself why I am forcing this. I think it’s safe to say that it has run its course. I still delight in seeing the simple beauties in the big picture, but do I really need to collect four examples of it every single week and comment on it? I don’t think so. Therefore, I’ve decided it’s time for Happiness Tuesdays to go on an indefinite hiatus. Maybe one day I’ll bring it back or maybe I won’t, but I will no longer be coming up on Monday and saying Holy —-! Tomorrow is Tuesday. When something is no longer enjoyable, that’s when you have to let it go.
How about you? Is there something you are doing that no longer makes any sense?
