Have you heard there's a World Happiness Summit happening in March?

What's it all about?

It's a global movement to increase awareness on happiness as a life choice, as a human right and as an enabler of human development and social innovation.

Their pledge is to increase awareness of happiness as a life choice, a human right and an enabler of human development and social innovation.

Inspired to join the movement? Do you believe happiness is simply a 'CHOICE'.... if you have ever experienced chronic depression, I am not sure I agree.  But I do like and support the social movement to improve the lives of ourselves and our fellow humans across the globe.  It is our birthright to be happy.
