Today March 20, the international community celebrates the International Day of Happiness.
Fez – The day comes as a reminder to human beings of the crucial effects of happiness on the well-being of peoples around the world. This is an opportunity to stop for a moment and reflect on the noble and deep meanings enshrined in happiness and love, values that the multitude of everyday concerns tend to make us overlook.
This universal goal, the ultimate dream of each of us cannot be achieved without recognizing the principal duty of governments around the globe to disseminate access to education, facilitate social interaction and enhance the quality and standards of living of their citizens.
Positive attitudes and warm emotions can change lives
The feeling of happiness is the fairest blessing endowed on human beings. It is the same feeling of a man who wins a mega million lottery ticket, or a man who marries the girl of his dreams or a poor child who is offered a sweet candy.
Fortunately, happiness cannot be counted, nor can it be sold or bought, for it comes from within our hearts as a reaction to simple gestures we do or we receive.
Love, respect, appreciate.
When we write about love, we do it not necessarily to express how we feel towards a sweetheart. We can do it to support a cause, to follow a dream, to praise a country, or to share an idea …etc.
When we think of love, we think of appreciation, generosity, solidarity and respect.
We appreciate our difference with the other, because appreciation awakens our senses from inertia to maturity.
We put our heart and soul at the disposal of a loved one in a magnificent gesture of generosity, devoting time and energy to see a warm reaction, a smile … or a hug.
We care for the other to show support, fuel the engines of courage, to loosen up the day to day stress and feel moments of joy, share memories of happiness and/or sadness, and feel that we exist, that we are alive.
Through respect we show love and feel loved. Because respect is the horizon where love can fly high. It is the ink that can make a pen writes master pieces. Respect is the soul of human relations.
The greatest feeling of happiness is to feel appreciated. And a simple smile is the best gesture of appreciation. It won’t cost us a dime, but it can change one’s world. A pat on someone’s back won’t take much energy, but can encourage one to stand in front of a storm.
A hug is hospitality, a warm feeling shared among friends, family, strangers… It means I respect you, I support you, I stand by you and care for you. It simply means I love you.
Let us rekindle our spirit with hope, like a candle in the wind, fighting to cope with the breeze, allowing itself the chance to sustain its flames alive in the midst of thunder. let us enlighten our world with humility and accept one another’s difference, like a candle in the wind, trying to light up the sky, to overcome the powers of darkness.
The candle of love nurtures our heart with optimism and faith in the future, that tomorrow will be a new day, that tomorrow will bring new opportunities, and that tomorrow the candle will rejuvenate with the spirit of hope.
Keep the love and share the feeling. This is what makes life a love story.
