Here's what I know: Happiness is an inside job.
When I look back at the times in my life when the going was tough and the news bad - I also remember those moments of laughter, of a friend's, or even more magical than that: a stranger's random kindness to me, or of simple beauty that brought me a smidge of happiness. Just enough happiness in a terrible moment to remind me more happiness was possible.

I really mean it: I wish you a Happy Blue Monday. Create some happiness for yourself. Find an animal to pet, a flower to gaze upon, a person to hug, a great memory to share, something to laugh about... create a wee smidge of happiness. Enough to remind you that there's more to come.
