30 Ways to Embrace Happiness

Easter is almost here, birdsong rings through the air, flowers bloom endlessly:  what's not to be happy about?  So many of us view spring as a new awakening, a chance for the earth to come back to life in full force.  I don't think I'm alone when I say that I find myself being much more optimistic during the springtime;  I find myself doing things that make me purely and utterly happy, and in the spirit of spring, I've decided to share a few things that never fail to put a smile on my face. There's an activity for every day of a month, and whether you can envision yourself doing these activities or you find them ridiculous, I hope they inspire you to seek a little bit of happiness in every day.
