Happiness is a choiceโ‰๏ธ Remember happiness does not mean you are problem free ๐Ÿ˜ฒ That kind of life doesnโ€™t exist ๐Ÿšซ As the Stoics of Ancient Greece observed, happiness is all about the quality of your thoughts ๐Ÿคฏ

Happiness is not a destination๐Ÿ“, but rather a life-long pursuit. Joy can be anywhere at any time โฐ Donโ€™t limit yourself to searching for pleasure ๐Ÿ˜˜ Enjoy everything & anything that makes you happy ๐ŸŽ‰ Oprah Winfrey said it wasnโ€™t until she learned to be happy that good things started happening to her ๐Ÿ’ฏ

History of Happiness Happens Month

The Secret ๐Ÿคซ Society of Happy People (SOHP) started celebrating happiness with โ€œAdmit Youโ€™re Happy Day,โ€ on August 8, 1999 in Irving, Texas.

In December 1998, it gained international reception ๐Ÿค—, when it challenged advice columnist ๐Ÿ“ฐ Ann Landers for discouraging people from writing happy holiday newsletters enclosed with their holiday cards ๐Ÿ’Œ

Secret Society of Happy People Founder

๐Ÿ“ฏ According to Wikipedia Pamela Gail Johnson founded the Secret Society of Happy People with the main idea ๐Ÿ’ก of creating a โ€œsafe placeโ€ where people can share their happy moments ๐Ÿ˜€, without being discouraged by the parade rainers โ›ˆ

The purpose is to give people advice for handling their unhappy moments ๐Ÿ˜” & learning the lesson ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝโ€๐Ÿซ out of each and every 1๏ธโƒฃ of them. Also to stimulate peopleโ€™s right to express their happiness ๐Ÿ“ฃ โ€œas loud as they wantโ€

โ€œFolks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.โ€ โ€• Abraham Lincoln
