Today, March 20th is International Day of Happiness

by Ryan Kelly

God places people in our lives for all sorts of reasons.  I'd like to share about my friend Cindy - who is the most recent human being He has deliberately placed in my life (or, at least that I know of!). 

Cindy is one of those people you just want to be around.  She's happy, fun, sincere, energetic, spiritual, positive....you get the picture, don't you! I look forward to running into her, getting a text from her - and today...was extremely surprised when I was one of her many 'Acts of Happiness.' 

You see, Cindy delivered bouquets of gorgeous, colorful, cheerful flowers to people in her life.  Some she knows...and others that happened to be in Cindy's life today:) She texted me and said she was going to drop by the radio station.  She did...and she surprised me with these beautiful flowers!  Next thing you know...she is off to deliver more flowers and smiles.  Today, March 20th, is International Day of Happiness.  

It doesn't have to be flowers.  It can be kind words, a hug, a smile - just something to make someone else's day a little brighter!  

Wanna join in on the fun?  Here's how: 

1.  Do an Act of Happiness - It doesn't have to be big.  Remember, even the smallest act of kindness can brighten someone else's day.

2. Visit actsofhappiness.org to post your act to a virtual happiness wall. (For every act of happiness, $1 will be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters - up to $25,000!!!)

3.  Spread the word!

4.  Follow along:  Check out #HappyActs to see what's happening across the world, and to stay inspired. 

Lastly, remember - that this awesome concept doesn't have to be limited to 1 day out of the year.  Spreading happiness can only make this world a kinder and better plae. 

Cindy, thank you again for my gorgeous flowers!  I LOVE them!!
