Happy International Happiness Day!

Happy International Happiness Day Everyone!

Today is the first International Day of Happiness, launched by the UN. The UN acknowledges that the pursuit of happiness is a fundamental human goal and society as a whole needs to work harder to promote the things that really matter in the 21st century.

“On this first International Day of Happiness, let us reinforce our commitment to inclusive and sustainable human development and renew our pledge to help others. When we contribute to the common good, we ourselves are enriched. Compassion promotes happiness and will help build the future we want.” ~ Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary-General

The video below is so touching with such beautiful music and makes me happy. The illustrations and captions are from the book “Be happy – A little book to help you live a happy life.” by Monica Sheehan.

What will you do to “Be Happy” today?
