It is believed that National I Want You to be Happy Day was founded by a stationary or ecard company (https://rb.gy/udavhw).

More than ever, we need to celebrate this March 3 holiday. This day is about being selfless; it’s about helping others in whatever capacity possible.

I Want You to be Happy Day benefits for everyone, but can be especially encouraging for those suffering from mental illness or low self-esteem issues because it allows them to know that they are loved and appreciated. When we look at others as important, it gives them a sense of reassurance and encourages them to keep moving forward.

There are so many different ways to participate in this day, since it is all about making others happy. Find ways to put a smile on people’s faces and realize that you will make yourself happy in the meantime. You might consider starting a payment chain in a drive-thru where you pay for the person behind you, or compliment another person.

True happiness is found in the love and support of others. While greed can fuel the negativity and hate in this world, showing love and support can bring out the positivity on I Want You to be Happy Day and every day.
