And yes, International Happiness Day is a real thing! The UN made it so. 🙂
And for both IHD and the Spring Equinox to happen on the same day THIS YEAR, I hope, portends happy things.
For now, to celebrate IHD, step outside and breathe the fresh air or smile in front of a mirror for as long as it takes for you to feel it.
For the Equinox, know that Spring is here. If it’s warm enough where you live, take off your shoes and stand on the ground barefoot. Imagine all of winter’s blues draining down from your body, through your feet and into the ground. Then take deep breaths and imagine the renewing earth sending its vibes upward. Then go inside and put on a pair of thick socks and drink some cocoa!
The point is, find some joy today and figure out how to manifest it every day. I’m a busy girl, but I do find little things, all day long, to keep me happy—a scented candle, pressing noses together with my cat, drinking a hot cup of coffee with my hands wrapped around it…
Tell me what makes you happy!
Things that make me happy. Listening to the birds chirp in the spring, listening to my wind chimes, reading, Beta reading for an author, watching TV and ice cream.
Feeling the sun on my face and watching the birds feed in my backyard.
I baked Easter bread this morning. love the smell and taste of fresh bread!! I am happiest walking barefoot on the beach with the sun shining and listening to the waves.
My pets, books, music, beautiful weather, etc.
Reading and/or listening to books makes me really happy.
Lovely, lovely happy thoughts all!
