According to the 100happydays.com website, a majority of people don't have the time to be happy every day.

The challenge is to post a picture on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram of what made people happy every single day for 100 days using the hashtag #100HappyDays.

According to the site, the challenge puts people in a better mood every day, makes them more optimistic and has even helped some to fall in love.

Here are 39 things that made people happy every day in the #100HappyDays challenge:

Mother's birthday this year. Found this at a flea market at Bacardi #nh7 #weekender #2013 Pune. She introduced me to 'good' music before I could even spell. An apt gift for a (sort of) hipster mother from a (sort of ) photographer son, don't you think? #Beatles #Abby #road #vinyl #1969 #100happydays
