This week on the 20th of March we were celebrating the International Day of Happiness. In 2011, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which recognised happiness as a “fundamental human goal” and called for “a more inclusive, equitable and balanced approach to economic growth that promotes the happiness and well-being of all peoples”.
In 2012 the first ever UN conference on Happiness took place and the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which decreed that the International Day of Happiness would be observed every year on 20 March. It was celebrated for the first time in 2013.
This is my happy list:
Olivia’s tiny dimples
Tim jokes (he is a very funny man)
Warm sand under my feet
Upcycling and painting furniture’s
Meeting old friends
Stepping off a plane into heat
Watching Disney movies with my girls
Dinner with friends
Hiking in the mountains
Dinner dates with Tim
Gin & Tonic
The smell of freshly cut grass
Visiting auction houses
Lying in our hammock
Looking at pictures on Pinterest
Watching my children playing together
Looking at the stars
Giving stuff to the charity shops and any charity work
Being by the sea
Going to bed after a long day
And of course the sun and blue sky!
Make your own happy list and enjoy the little things!
Izzi, Tim & “the Monsters”
