A Story about Love and Inspiration

When Linda Carey was diagnosed with breast cancer, her husband Bob went Think Pink to the max, taking photos of himself in a pink tutu—and little else—as a way to stay positive and light-hearted during Linda’s treatment. Bob has travelled as far as Italy to take tutu-shots, now assembled into a book of images called “Ballerina” — currently on sale with all proceeds going to breast cancer organizations. We’re also big fans of Bob’s quote to the Huffington Post when asked how we can better laugh in the face of hardship and tragedy: “Just remember how much fun it was to be a kid.” Story Blurb Credit to Soul Pancake Spoonful.

“I did this to make people happy.” -Bob

Thank Bob, you’re the best! -Nicole

Inspiration on how to live a happy life…no matter what.

Here is a great example of how Zach Sobiech lived a Life on Happy even after getting diagnosed with terminal cancer in May 2012. What did Zac do? Picked up his guitar and changed the world.

“Clouds,” which has received more than 8.8 million hits on YouTube and reached No. 1 on the iTunes singles chart, was written by Zach to say farewell to friends and family as he was suffering from terminal osteosarcoma.

When Zach passed away on May 20, 2013, his fans pushed ’Clouds’ to up to #1 on iTunes, Spotify and the Billboard charts – a fitting tribute to a remarkable young man.

The event was organized by the KS95 for Kids Radiothon, which started Thursday. The two-day annual radiothon, a benefit for the Children’s Cancer Research Fund and Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare, has raised more than $12 million since it was started in 1999.

Zach is an inspiration to all of us at Life on Happy because he reminds the world that life is precious and you CAN make the world better with a positive attitude…and a guitar.

Some pics from Dec 6, 2013 at Mall of America where 5,000 people came together for the world’s Largest ‘Cloud Chorus’

More than 5,000 people joined a world-record

An Attitude of Gratitude

As Thanksgiving is upon us this week, we found an awesome way to showcase an Attitude of Gratitude that is scientifically proven to make you happier!

Here is the science behind how being grateful leads to increased happiness:

At the end of the video, it asks that if you’re having a tough day, film yourself showing gratitude and send it in. Please also post your video link here so we can share your happy with each other on this blog.

Life on Happy recommends you to try writing your own letter to someone who has had an impact on your life and, if possible, read it on Thanksgiving to that person. Maybe this become a family event, annual tradition, or maybe this can be your Happymoon!

Whatever it becomes for you-it will make you more Happy. Try it:)
