SPN: Sam's Bright Smile

Happiness Happens Day

Today is National Happiness Happens Day. The day was developed to remind people that happiness happens when you least expect it, and that it's ok to admit you have a smile on your face.

It also is important to note that you have to work to make happiness happen, for yourself and for other people.

Happiness Happens Day is about being happy, putting good vibes in the world, being nice. No complaining, no negativity. Just for one day. You can do it, I know you can!

How you celebrate is up to you. But, here are a few of my suggestions:

-TELL people what today is.
-Give compliments.
-Say thank you.
-Do a Random Act of Kindness for someone offline.
-Give someone an LJ gift. (It's 99 cents!)
-Make a custom icon for someone else.
-Write a comment fic for someone else.
-Post pictures of things that make you happy.
-Start a love meme.
-Anything else you can come up with!

Check in, let me know how the day goes! Put effort into this, let's MAKE IT WORK because we all deserve to be happy.

Happiness Happens Day: Quotes

"If there were in the world today any large number of people who desired their own happiness more than they desired the unhappiness of others, we could have paradise in a few years."
--Bertrand Russell

"Life's greatest happiness is to be convinced we are loved."
--Victor Hugo

The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance, the wise grows it under his feet."
--James Oppenheim

"Many people think that if they were only in some other place, or had some other job, they would be happy. Well, that is doubtful. So get as much happiness out of what you are doing as you can and don't put off being happy until some future date."
--Dale Carnegie

"Happiness depends upon ourselves."

"Happiness comes more from loving than being loved; and often when our affection seems wounded it is only our vanity bleeding. To love, and to be hurt often, and to love again -- this is the brave and happy life."
--J. E. Buchrose
