HAPPINESS IS


Did you know that the UN has declared March 20th to be observed as the International Day of Happiness?

"The day recognizes that happiness is a fundamental human goal, and calls upon countries to approach public policies in ways that improve the well being of all peoples.  By designating a special day for happiness, the UN aims to focus world attention on the idea that economic growth must be inclusive, equitable, and balanced, such that it promotes sustainable development, and alleviates poverty. Additionally the UN acknowledges that in order to attain global happiness, economic development must be accompanied by social and environmental well being." - timeanddate.com

So today, instead of spreading hate, anger, aggravation  annoyance, or any other negativity, decide to be positive, loving, understanding, if only to yourself.  In an attempt to be a bit happier today, try to not get annoyed when someone cuts you off while driving or irritated at the loud cell phone call your co-worker is having, because these feelings only create unhappiness and suffering.  Because happiness spreads and to reach the UN's admirable goal stated above, we must find happiness in ourselves.
