“With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?” – Oscar Wilde
Today, on International Happiness Day, take a moment to think about what truly makes you happy. That undeniably, can’t hold it in, life doesn’t get better than this, happy. For Oscar Wilde, it was freedom, books, flowers, and the moon. What is it for you?
If you go on Instagram today (who am I kidding, I should say “when,” not “if,”) search the hashtag #happinessday for a peek into what makes people happy; all over the world. It is pretty amazing to see. The Huffington Post UK posted an interesting article about taking money out of the definition of happiness. Easier said than done, but it is a humbling challenge that immediately puts things into perspective.
