Today's Kindness #138: August 8, 2022
Happiness Happens! 😄❤️🥰
Happy National Happiness Happens Day!
On this day each year just let it happen. You know. Happiness. Because happiness happens.
The day encourages happiness all day. Recognize every moment of glee, joy, delight, and pleasure. Don't let it pass. Most importantly, a flicker of a giggle should be given its due, and should it blossom into full-blown happiness, don't be surprised. It happens!
Another element of the day prohibits the squashing of other people's happiness. From time to time, we might find others' happiness might seem irritating. Those moments happen when we have particularly rotten days. However, our bad days don't give us the right to squash another person's joy. Instead, allow their delight in the day to infect us. Perhaps, their ability to smile will blow the storm clouds away from your day.
Also, It's National Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day. We just thought you'd like to know that.
"For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
