Timeless (5) So, The Spring has come... Deci, Primăvara a venit ...

So... Spring has come...
What you'll do, knowing this? It's this event a new start of renewing?...
"More than ever before, Happiness is a socio economic goal, a cultural priority, and the subject of scientific research. During Happiness Week, and especially on the International Day of Happiness, we take time to create and act on opportunities for all of us to achieve Happiness." *Excerpt from the message from United Nations adviser and CEO of the Illien Global Public Benefit Corporation, Jayme Illien, who helped draft UN Resolution 66/281, proclaiming March 20th the International Day of Happiness forever. http://www.happinessday.org/
You'll go out if the weather allows?

You'll make long walks in the nature, in the parks, wherever you'll feel fine?

Maybe you'll try to see or watch, surprised, at the first new buds and the first leaves?

Maybe, for instance,  you'll think that the magnolium is almost, ready to bloom...

So...
What's your thought, today... What makes you happy? What’s your reason to smile today?

"In 2015 their campaign, titled 'YOUR HAPPINESS IS PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER', focuses on the importance of human connection in the context of the epidemic of loneliness and isolation in modern societies."Maybe you're not ready to be in the mood to contemplate... to dream with open eyes... to start to reinvent the soon coming days of Spring... to see and look at the infinite blue sky, even more blue than ever before...

Springtime has come... yes, for sure...
but you already know it... you really know... just the way I do know, too  ...

So: A happy first day of spring for all of you!

 "The International Day of Happiness *

"More than ever before, Happiness is a socio economic goal, a cultural priority, and the subject of scientific research. During Happiness Week, and especially on the International Day of Happiness, we take time to create and act on opportunities for all of us to achieve Happiness." *Excerpt from the message from United Nations adviser and CEO of the Illien Global Public Benefit Corporation, Jayme Illien, who helped draft UN Resolution 66/281, proclaiming March 20th the International Day of Happiness forever.

"The International Day of Happiness is celebrated throughout the world on the 20th of March. It was established by the United Nations General Assembly on 28 June 2012.

Assembly Resolution A/RES/66/281 states in pertinent part:

The General Assembly,[…] Conscious that the pursuit of happiness is a fundamental human goal,[…] Recognizing also the need for a more inclusive, equitable and balanced approach to economic growth that promotes sustainable development, poverty eradication, happiness and the well-being of all peoples, Decides to proclaim 20 March the International Day of Happiness, Invites all Member States, organizations of the United Nations system and other international and regional organizations, as well as civil society, including non-governmental organizations and individuals, to observe the International Day of Happiness in an appropriate manner, including through education and public awareness-raising activities[…]

Reception*
"Each year since the day's inception the charity Action for Happiness has coordinated an international campaign to coincide with day, bringing together a coalition of over 60 organisations to promote positive social action to help create a happier and more caring world. In 2015 their campaign, titled 'YOUR HAPPINESS IS PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER', focuses on the importance of human connection in the context of the epidemic of loneliness and isolation in modern societies. As well as running the official Day of Happiness website they have organised happiness flash-mobs in 12 cities across the world and promote the sharing of positive messages on social media on the hashtag #internationaldayofhappiness." *Excerpts; click above to read for more info on Wikipedia:

  5. frumos colaj de început de primavara! si eu incerc de cateva zile sa ma urnesc spre gradina botanica. Precis magnoliile sunt in toata splendoarea lor si covorul de brânduse se intinde pe intreg gazonul. Poate ca voi gasi deschisa si o expozitie de lalele sau macar de primule si ghiocei. Uite, articolul tau ma face sa ma ambitionez si sa-mi duc la capat planul - astazi voi fi in gradina botanica, promit! :)
    Be happy! o bucurie sa-ti fie fiecare zi din primavara! ☺

    1. la ora amiezii am facut plimbarea pe care am promis-o ☺ Din pacate, la noi niciun copacel nu si-a deschis mugurasii, nici magnolia-stea nici merisorii sau forsythia nu au înflorit insa am gasit gazonul plin cu brânduse si ghiocei. In hala centrala am vizitat o expozitie cu aranjamente din flori de primavara. A fost o plimbare placuta. Ma bucur ca am fost sa vad brândusele, pentru ca acum tocmai a inceput sa ploua si meteorologii spun ca ploaia va dura cateva zile, probabil ca la urmatoarea zi cu soare, brândusele vor fi deja ofilite.
      te pup. Un weekend minunat sa ai!

    2. Asemenea, o saptamana minunata si insorita, o primavara frumoasa pentru tine si cei dragi! Intr-adevar vremea capricioasa da batai de cap multora si prognoza nu prea e favorabila, pentru urmatoarea perioada, dar tot mai sper sa ajung sa vad primele magnolii si mugurii proaspeti de pe ramuri! Multumiri, inca o data, pentru inspiratie si calde salutari, asemenea!! :) ☺
