A weird trend has developed and boomed with the invention of social media and our ability to share thoughts on the daily. The concept of “national days” is everywhere. Anything from National Donut Day to National Talk Like a Pirate Day, there’s something for everyone. But today’s “national day” struck me as something of which we can all use an extra dose. March 20th is the National Day of Happiness.
What a strange and uncharted time in our world! We need each other in seasons of uncertainty, more than ever. In looking at the origins of this National Day of Happiness, I came across the following quote:
A joy that’s shared is a joy made double.-Proverb
What struck me about the line was its simple truth. We are better as a people when we share our stories, our triumphs, and the obstacles we overcome. We are better when we share our lives.
At Essential Education, we often say, “Your success is our goal.” In these crazy days, one of the ways we can aid in your dream achievement if by providing a platform to learn, grow, and gain strength from others JUST LIKE YOU!
On this National Day of Happiness, take a moment to “double your joy” by reading about the lives of others. Check out our student stories of struggle and success.
