International Day of Happiness

**Bring me down… can't nothing, Bring me Down!**
**Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth**
**Clap along if you know what happiness is to you!!**

Today was the International Day of Happiness. While I think that it is sad that we are all so preoccupied/depressed/needy/unhappy that an International Day of Happiness is necessary, I did take some time out of my day to think about what I am truly happy about. Other than the normal things that one would be happy about having, like a home, food and a place to go and be tortured daily job, there are just a few things that I am happy about… the constants in my life. I know I take to the blog and express my opinions about everything, without (generally) being very personal. This post is going to totally be the antithesis of that. Below I will show you what I am happy about (most days), my family, my pets and my very sweet husband who puts up with me on a daily basis with a grimace smile.

In the past year I have learned that friends (often) come and go, sometimes extended family is iffy and really what is necessary is that you cling to the people that have always been around, showing you love and support. I am lucky enough to have a large group of people who do that… and kinda look like me! :) Happy International Day of Happiness, y'all. Hug your loved ones. Hug 'em hard, hug 'em often… even if they hate it. Tell them every day that you love them. Let them know that they make YOU… happy.
