Happy International Day of Happiness!
Being happy is about living in the present moment and enjoying the little things about this beautiful life. I encourage you to take some time today to forget about the big picture and just focus on the things that make you happy right here, right now, in this very moment. Today is a day to acknowledge the good things in this world and to celebrate them! Even the smallest mood-booster can make a huge change in how you feel. I challenge you today (and every day!) to live a happy life in every single way you can. Shake those feelings of “I’ll be happy when I…” and decide that you are happy, NOW! What are some ways that you can be happy today?
