On Happiness

It’s the first day of Spring, and also the International Day of Happiness! Lots to celebrate.

Winter, even though it’s being really stubborn, will eventually wane and Spring will arrive. We have had glimpses of what’s to come, a week or so ago, so we can hold on to those warm memories until Spring really IS here.

And a whole day dedicated to being happy. As someone who has dealt with depression for long periods of time, I know that finding happy can be very challenging. So if you haven’t already, list three things you’re grateful for right now, smile even if you don’t feel like it, find something funny to make you laugh. Hug someone you like or love.

Here’s a video from Jamie Ridler at openthedoor.ca, someone who always makes me smile:

Keep smiling and be happy!
