week 12Happy Woman by Coleen Madamombe
A sturdy female figure stands with her hand pressed on her waist. She wears an elated expression on her face suggesting a great deal of confidence, an affirmative sense of identity and pride in herself.

This week we  celebrate the International Day of Happiness and also continue celebrating the women's month. The International Day of Happiness is a way of recognizing the importance of happiness in the lives of people around the world.  Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.
The observance of this day also serves as a useful reminder that happiness is a concept that  can mean many things to many people. To some happiness might come from buying and consuming, or from being famous or glamorous,  and for others from being around family, friends.  The celebration is more than just a fun celebration, it also remind us that the world  can be a better place when we connect with and care about the people around us.
Have a happy week!
