Happy Day of Happiness – March 20th

Ha, that sounds redundant when you say it out loud.  And here is my favorite Happy song, a cover of the song Happy done by Walk Off The Earth.

What a great day to celebrate happiness.  I guess this is sponsored by the United Nations.  So go out and make the world a Happier Place!

27 ways to increase your happiness from the Huffington Post.  Here is a post of mine where I’m keeping track of happiness related items.

Awesome # 30: Arctic Winter Sunrises

just discovered this blog, and found this older post particularly beautiful. Jodie’s more recent posts describing her Daily Dose of Awesomeness are wonderful little tidbits of encouragement. I will try again to get into a routine of naming the awesome parts of my day with my bf.

So here’s the list:
