Happy Friday!

How has your week been? Mine was busy and hectic, and we've had worrying family news. In today's world, it's so easy to forget to be grateful for all the things we do have.

In my quest to  be more mindful , I'm a member of Action for Happiness, So today I'm  unofficially linking up with Shell's regular Hoppy Friday  post because yesterday was  the UN's International Day of Happiness 2014

Pharrell Williams joined up  with the UN Foundation to ask people around the world to submit footage of them being happy: singing, dancing, playing or doing whatever makes them feel jolly.


One of the most popular and moving videos of the campaign is  from the Philippines. People are dancing amidst the rubble that still exists after 2013's Typhoon Haiyan, the deadliest recorded typhoon in that country.  It's a wonderful  reminder of how resilient human beings  can be.

So if you're not having the greatest week, I hope this makes you smile. If you  are, that's wonderful, please enjoy some more Happy right now!x

  1. Pharrell Williams song "Happy, Clap Along" is without a doubt my very favorite ever!!! Sometimes I just play it over and over and over again. It really elevates me. Clap Along...

  2. Love this song and such a fun video - such devastation. Hard to look at the scenery behind them while they are dancing. We were suppose to be there two days after it hit - but of course cancelled. Thanks for visiting my blog : )
