On the Hunt for Joy Challenge

Welcome to my On the Hunt for Joy Challenge Page.  As always I hope you have fun with this challenge.

I got the idea for this challenge from Ingrid Fetell Lee and her TED Talk is on the bottom of this page.  I know I am always out looking for joyful things to photograph and thought it would make a great challenge.

On Ingrid Fetell Lee’s website, she has a listing of 50 Ways to Find More Joy Every Day.  I’m going to be using the 50 ways for a weekly topic.  Some of the topics will be expanded on as to how we can show them in photos for a challenge.

  1. Hi Cee, I just dropped you a mail. Seeking your help on something that I’m working on. Would love to hear from you. Thanks!


  2. Just found you through another blogger. I really like those topics. Joining in. How about you create an Instagram account so we can hashtag into the challenge and see other’s images? Like #huntforjoychallenge or something like that?


  3. Cess,
    This is phenomenal.

    We get so busy with life, it is easy to forget to incorporate joy in every day-to-day activities.

    I have shared this on my flipboard and mix profile and will tag you on Twitter.

    Joyful week!


  4. What a shame I’ve only just seen this list otherwise I would have taken part! Still, a good list to make note of 🙂
