Cheer up, buttercup!
Jayme Illien had the right idea when he founded the International Day of Happiness — a day meant to “inspire, mobilize, and advance the global happiness movement.”
Set to promote and celebrate common humanity, International Happiness Day has a different theme every year. This year’s theme in March was “happier together”. The goal of the theme is to focus on what brings people together instead of what divides them.
Happiness is something that brings people across the world together. You don’t have to know a person to be happy for their successes.
There is something about seeing someone else happy that makes you happy, even if it’s only for a brief moment. That happiness even sometimes inspires you to create happiness for yourself. It is contagious. But it can be hard to stay happy all the time or remember that we have something to be happy about at all times.
This is especially true when we fall on hard times. We tend to focus on everything that is going wrong instead of everything we have to be thankful for.
While it would be great to think about the world this way all the time, negative thoughts are powerful. They make it even harder to snap out of a funk. That is why sometimes we need a little kick start to help cheer us up.
Life quotes about being happy can be that kick start since they point our hearts and minds in the right direction when we need it most. Happy quotes help us realize that we can still find life in the darkness and that we can and will persevere through the hard times.
So, if your spirits have been a little down and you could use a little help lifting up, here are 25 happy quotes to cheer you up, encourage you to do what makes you happy, and teach you to learn to be happy with what you have.
