Day 2: Today’s picture is a little rubbish, a phone cover I know, but I can’t actually put a picture up of what made me happy the most today so this will have to do.

What’s actually made me happy today is my friend making me laugh, pretty much all day, through my shift in work today. Ok yes a misuse of company emails but who care’s right? Haha! (There were A LOT! Of emails!!) 

Making a bit of a dent on my research project too, although I’m still a very long way off! Came home to find a parcel from Amazon, who doesn’t love one of those, and my little devilish friend was what was inside. Actually quite fitting for today ;)

Day 1: So I’m trying this new thing I’d seen floating round my many social networking apps! 100 Happy Days. The idea is to post a photo of something that makes you happy, everyday, for 100 days straight! 

This might not seem like a big thing, just a silly fad. But here’s the trick. I suffer from depression, and have done for a very long time. It comes in waves, sometimes I’m the happiest person in the world and other times I just want to run away and leave everything and everyone behind me. This is a pretty basic and reader friendly way of describing 14 years worth of depression fuelled mood swings I know!! 

Anyway! One of the things I do to help keep myself in line is keep a ‘thought diary’. I try to do this everyday but I find that I usually only end up writing in it when I’m coming out of a ‘dip’ so it’s not really that useful a tool! Then I saw this!! 100 days straight of looking at the smaller things that make me happy. Not focusing on the negative, just the positive.  

Today is Day 1, and it’s been a bad day!! So bad that it’s just been a blur of anger and headaches. I’m supposed to be working on a research project, but instead I decided to take a little time out and watch and old episode of one of my favourite TV shows. Grey’s Anatomy (I really do love it!!) and I realised this is it. This is my thing today that’s making me happy. It’s rubbish I know but it’s helping with my stress load so here it is! Season 3 Grey’s Anatomy episode is making me happy today :)

Stephen Fry: Out There - Episode 2 Gif set

This comes from Episode 2 of Stephen Fry’s BBC documentary Out There.

"This episode sees Stephen visit Brazil, home to the largest gay pride celebration in the world and a place that has some of the best legislation on the planet for gay equality. But it has come at a price. All of the advances have brought about a violent backlash against gay people; on average, one gay person is murdered every 36 hours in Brazil. Stephen sees how this is impacting on the lives of gay men and women there and also confronts the politician leading the fight against gay rights.

Stephen also visits Russia, where gays are now worse off than they have been for a long time. Their rights are being constantly eroded by a conservative government, backed by the disapproval of the Russian Orthodox Church. Stephen then travels to India, where the old British laws that criminalised homosexuality have just been overturned. Modern India is now looking to Hindu traditions as it forges a more positive way forward for its gay citizens, including its once celebrated transgender community.”
