I’ve seen a few people mention online that it’s the International Day of Happiness. I was a bit skeptical, so I took a look at the website, https://www.dayofhappiness.net. This year’s theme is “Happier Together, focusing on what we have in common, rather than what divides us.” They have a Ten Keys to Happier Living guidebook, which is focused on taking action rather than trite suggestions to think positive.
What I am focusing on today is gratitude. My guinea pig Squeaky is still with me, although he’s very sick and isn’t going to win this war. But we’re able to have some nice cuddle time before he goes, and I’m grateful for that.
