March 20th is International Day of Happiness.
There’s still good in the world
I have to admit that I have been struggling with happiness lately. I don’t really know why. I can’t complain, everything important is alright. I’m feeling so alive. I can’t deny I’m that I have a good life.

Maybe it has to do with making more effort to have a productive life and not having the energy to quite reach that “I have all of my shit together” vibe. I have to remind myself that I’m doing my best and that’s okay.
I also keep reminding myself that I’m not alone. Every second, every minute, every day, a person is affected by a mental health problem. I strive to keep my heart and mind in the right place.
Even when struggling with mental illness, happiness is possible. When I am feeling down I find that listening to music, dancing (if my body permits it) makes me feel better.
