Happiness Is for the Holidays

Happiness Is for the Holidays

There was a time when “happy” is not what I considered myself. I would probably lean quite the opposite way before my husband and I got together. I was basically a miserable being and it had a lot to do with the fact that I was searching for something that I already possessed yet didn’t acknowledge. Love. Love always makes me happy.

As I started to add kids into the mix, pets into the mix, a home into the mix, it started to become very clear to me that all I needed to be happy was my family beside me. It’s cliche and sappy but the unconditional love that comes with family is the basis of my happy life. But that was sheltered and small and you know, I expanded outside of my family.

I discovered social media. Or it helped me discover me and my happiness. I all of a sudden had people from all over Canada on my friend’s list. I made new friends who I consider like family. I realized that stranger danger on the internet is not scary at all but so soul soothing. I started this blog and I started to be surrounded (metaphorically) by these strong warrior men and women who told me it was ok to not be perfect, to struggle, to fall (and get back up), they (you) taught me to accept myself and to love myself and to open up and tell my stories, and that makes me happy.

Happiness Is Inc.

Happiness is inc.I started seeing the “Happiness Is…Canada” shirt last month on social media. With the recent (insert adjective here) happening at our neighbour down south I think it’s pretty easy to agree with the shirts saying, happiness is Canada! And then I attended the Impressions PR Holiday Gift Lounge and got to meet part of the team behind Happiness Is Inc. and I fell even more in love with the brand. Happiness is inc. 

It’s a brand spankin’ new endeavour coming from within our borders. Ninety-five-year-old Gordon Carton has spent his life being proud of his Canadian roots, whether it was while serving his country in WWII, in politics or as a businessman, he always believed that Canada is the greatest country. Now in his prime years, he wants to help Canadians to find THEIR happiness and that a pretty amazing thing. Happiness is inc.

Made in Canada, from start to finish, these shirts and sweaters are quality made. I have gotten so many comments in the past couple of weeks while wearing my shirt and love that 10% of net proceeds are donated to a cause near and dear, the David Suzuki Foundation.Happiness is inc.

Since we really want you to rock this amazing Canadian gift we have an offer for 15% off anything until Dec 31 using the code ANETA15.
