A day dedicated to celebrating Happiness! Yahoo!
And it’s the first day of Spring! A double hitter!
Make sure to share your happiness with others today 😊
“Elizabeth Gilbert, author of "Eat, Pray, Love", quote: People tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will descend like fine weather if you're fortunate. But happiness is the result of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly”.
