Happy International Day of Happiness

UN LogoIn 2012 the 66th General Assembly of the UN stated that all member states should:

“…observe the International Day of Happiness in an appropriate manner, including through education and public awareness-raising activities…”

So why don’t we stop for a second, take a deep breath, and remember where we are in life. Remember how fortunate it is to be in a place where creative works have a space to flourish. Film, television, theatre and more are available to all of us.

It can be hard to take a minute to and reflect with the times changing so rapidly around us. It is easy to lose sight of the opportunity many of us have had along with the exciting future that is beautifully unpredictable.

Buy a sandwich for that homeless man outside the coffee shop, call your family and friends to just say hi, and smile to a stranger.

It’s also important to remember that today isn’t the only day you have to do it too.
