International Day of Happiness

International Day of Happiness

International Day of Happiness

Today is International Day of Happiness and it’s an opportunity to get happy for a day and see if you can sustain it past the first argument with the kids.

In 2013 the UN started International Day of Happiness as a way to recognise the importance of happiness in everyone’s lives.

In 2015 the UN launched 17 Sustainable Development Goals that seek to end poverty, reduce inequality, and protect our planet – three key aspects that lead to well-being and happiness.

On a personal level, happiness for me comes from a place of gratitude and grace. Sure, my kids will argue, I’ll have a bad day but when I look around with gratitude and grace I can see things differently. I am grateful that I have the day, that I have kids, that I am healthy and we are fortunate to be part of a loving and supportive family and community. When I take a moment and actually see what is before me I can’t help but feel happy.

Of course, there are things that drive me nuts like clothes on the floor, dishes on the bench next to the dishwasher and a puppy who continues to dig up my pride and joy but sometimes I have to just hide away, breathe and realise that these days will pass and for now I choose happiness.

Happy International Day of Happiness to you all.
