Happy August

Admit it. You are happy. And that is no coincidence. August is Admit You're Happy Month. The Secret Society of Happy People designated August as the month to finally admit it, and several governors issued proclamations making it official.

If you need help, try visiting The Happiness Project. Gretchen Rubin is collecting facts about happiness, making a study of it, and she is willing to share her findings as she continues her book project. Here is a simple example, where she talks about the relationship between happiness and enthusiasm while celebrating a friend's birthday.

Do you still need help admitting it? Luckily, there's help. The month also has been designated for other celebrations.

Family Fun Month is the perfect time to fit in a few more activities before school starts again. Yes, it is that time and you had better take advantage of these weeks. Need any ideas?

What about a picnic? I read that August also happens to be National Picnic Month. Well, it seems that July is actually the picnic month, but July is over so go ahead and plan a picnic this weekend. Be sure to take some fruit because it is also Peach Month. Here are some practical pointers and some safety tips. Don't forget that ants like to dance at picnics.

When the kids finally do go back to school, take some time with your special sweetheart. August is Romance Awareness Month. Speaking of romance, my parents had a lovely romance. My mother said my dad was the only man for her.

August is also the month they were born. My father's was August 15, and today is my mother's 83rd birthday. Happy Birthday. I'll be thinking special thoughts of you today.

I have the happy gene. With few exceptions every month is happy month for me (and romance month).
