Oh Happy Day...

Oh Happy Day...

How do we define happiness? Some of us measure happiness with the things we own or with experiences or with the people that exist in our lives. However we define it, it really is something that we all want to feel.

I also believe that love and happiness go hand in hand. This is a powerful, rich combination that can conquer anything that life throws at us.

"When someone else's happiness is your happiness, that is love." —Lana Del Rey

I remember listening to someone talking at a wedding ceremony and he said that it didn't matter who we were, where we came from, what we believed in, we all had one thing in common, and that was to be happy and be loved.

This February we celebrate St Valentine's Day and love will definitely be in the air with flowers, music, candlelit dinners and for some it will be the day when your loved one proposes? Oh Happy Day!

St. Valentine's Day can be enjoyed by everyone. You can do something special for a friend, neighbour or colleague with a small kind gesture that will certainly make anyone's day. But also it can be a day that you do something for yourself that you love to do which will make you happy.

Wishing you lots of days full of love and happiness!
