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:

Millie’s freckles

Olivia’s tiny dimples

Tim jokes (he is a very funny man)

Warm sand under my feet

Thai food

Upcycling and painting furniture’s


Meeting old friends

Stepping off a plane into heat
