Happy International Day of Happiness!
Since 2013, the United Nations has recognized March 20th as an international day of celebrating happiness. The UN says that happiness is a fundamental right that should not be denied to anyone…I couldn’t agree more!
Today’s purpose is to reflect on what makes you happy, the hardships that are interfering with people’s ability to be happy around the world, and how you can bring happiness to others. For me, being happy means pursuing my passions, staying spiritually grounded, being surrounded by people that I love, seeing the world, and giving back to others.
What does happiness mean to you? What makes you happy? What can you do to bring happiness to those around you? As you go through the day today, take some time to think about these questions. One of the most important things to remember is…
“Dont’ look for happiness, create it.”
Happiness isn’t something that can be found, it’s something that you create for yourself. Being optimistic, thinking positive thoughts, being confident, accepting yourself for who you are, accepting others for who they are, and following your dreams are ways to experience happiness.
What will you do today to bring happiness to yourself and others?
