101 days of positive inspiration for everyday life BLOG CHALLENGE

Updated: Mar 30, 2021

101 days of positivity blog challenge

brought to you by:

Debra Cady

Hello friends and colleagues near and far.

I am launching a challenge to myself

(and if you want to join in, please do)

I am going to write a blog a day for 101 days!

Starts March 31, 2021 and runs until July 9, 2021 (my birthday!)


I want to write stories that will inspire you to see, feel, and act differently when you are struggling with life's challenges, big or small. I have been through some rough times in my life, some dark, some not so dark. I found myself searching for answers.

It turns out that a little book of affirmations about JOY that my sister gave me about 3 years ago made a difference. I'm not sure it gave me joy, but it gave me HOPE...and words I could relate to that got me through those tough times.

That led me to buying other books on positive psychology and taking the appreciative inquiry facilitator training. Eventually, I want to write a book of inspirational stories and starting to blog, seemed like a good place to start.


As my guide through 101 days of positivity blogging, I was inspired by and am using CHOOSE THE LIFE YOU WANT, The mindful way to happiness, by Tal Ben-Shahar (2012). I wrote to him about my blogging challenge and he responded:

Thank you for writing. I am honored. Thank you for doing it. Do let me know if I can help in any way. My very best, Tal

Each day, I will create a blog for each of the 101 ways that Tal Ben-Shahar shares in his this book about the small choices that will change your life forever. And maybe it will change your life forever, and I am sure it will change mine!

My Aspirational Goals?

  • Be a better person

  • Be a better positive psychology/appreciative inquiry practitioner

  • Be a better writer

  • Help others find hope and inspiration when they need it

  • Make the world a better place

  • Make a difference

How can you help?

  • You can read and like my blog

  • You can comment on my blog

  • You can start your own challenge and tell me how it's going

  • You can encourage me to stay on target and meet my goal


  • That I publish 101 blogs a day from March 31 - July 9, 2021

  • I experience a transformation

  • You read and like my short daily blog for 1 or 101 days!

Get ready for the positivity, inspiration, and hope that is coming your way!
