The United Nations asked that March 20 be designated as International Happiness Day and the world took it seriously. The day is designed for people to examine what really makes them happy or more importantly what should make YOU happy.

Will another THING in your life create more happiness for you or will bringing happiness to someone outside of yourself truly bring you happiness.

Emmy award winning singer, songwriter and producer Pharell Williams teamed up with the United Nations and asked anyone who wanted to display their happiness through video expression to create a video to the tune of his award winning Happy song. If go to YouTube and type RVA Happy and you will see that the world and Richmond responded in a big way. Even the fine folks here at NBC12 and the CW showed that the were proud to say they were HAPPY!

Kudos to Meadowbrook High School for taking the time to participate, thereby expressing to their staff and students that it's important to be happy and to give back.

Although March 20 has passed, it's never too early or too late to truly examine what makes you happy.
