The most important thing is to enjoy your life—to be happy—it’s all that matters.”
We all need a little happiness in our lives, even better when it is shared between people. Surrey based Katie Britcliffe has bought this to life for many people with her ‘Find My Happy’ project. I absolutely love this idea, and it is even more touching when you learn of the motivation behind it.
Katie’s mum, was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in November 2015, she sadly died in June 2016. Annie used the idea of ‘pockets of happiness’ to help her cope. So what are pockets of happiness? Well it’s simple:
“however rubbish your day is, there is always something to be happy about”
Katie started making the “Find My Happy” key rings to raise money for research into motor neurone disease and she has now hidden them all over the county and many have now been rehidden all over the world! On finding the tags and little happiness note, people are invited to hide the ‘happiness treasure’ somewhere else so it can be found by another person and to document their finds on the facebook page. Some lovely stories have been shared by people who have stumbled across these Happy tags on a normal, average day.
Leaving little key rings as gifts in random places is our way of creating pockets of happiness for people to find and either keep or re-hide for someone else.
