March 3: I Want You To Be Happy Day

Bobby McFerrin says "Don't Worry, Be Happy!"

March 3 is I Want You To Be Happy Day. As you go about this day, remember that the point is not for others to make you happy, but each and every one of us to do what we can to bring joy to someone else’s life. (Of course, the act of doing something kind for another often makes the doer happy as well, but that is never the point.

Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.

Romans 12:10

You have to put yourself in the other person’s shoes before figuring out how to make that person happy. Flowers can cause smiles . . . or sneezes. One person would love to be taken out to dinner, while another would like nothing more than to be given a completely free evening alone with a book. Just remember, whoever you are dealing with on I Want You To Be Happy Day, your goal is to make that person happy.
