International Happiness Day

This past week I saw some Facebook posts about International Happiness Day. I started thinking if I’m the only one in charge of my happiness like the “experts” say, then why not celebrate happiness every day? When I feel like I’m not happy, maybe what I’m feeling is discontent so I don’t get too comfortable where I’m at. That way I’ll continue striving to better myself and seeking ways to contribute to my little corner of the world. Happiness, I believe, is contagious. The happier we are, the more our joy spills over and affects others. Beginning on April 1st (to coincide with another self-imposed challenge), I’m planning to start each day picking one thing that makes me happy and adding it to my list of tasks—no restrictions. It can include treating myself to a green tea latte to “paying it forward” with a good deed. I’ll call it my 30 days of happiness challenge. Stay tuned for updates.

What is one thing that makes you happy?
