It seems like no matter what we do at work or at home, we're always striving for happiness. The key to happiness seems to be a lot simpler than I realized. Watch this video, and share if it made you smile.

We don't need books or public service announcements nor even organized religion to tell what the human has known for a long time; happiness is a life well lived and that can not be purchased. What may seem to some to be a tiny act of kindness may well change a life. Knowing that within our being is the only true happiness.

I will share a story; when I joined Facebook it was to share and hopefully gain signatures for certain petitions. I didn't expect that students from long ago would recognize me or my name. Those little messages saying "because of you I studied------" , have brought me a true sense of happiness. Every time you do something that helps another being, human or animal you have brought some happiness into your own life.

Thanks Kit for expanding on this video's content with both your personal experiences and the wisdom you've gained from a life well-lived. You cannot currently send a star to Kit because you have done so within the last week.

It was my job, my profession and I was paid to do what I did, to do the extras is what makes good teachers, and if we happen to be very lucky, have an impact on a few students. None of us alone can change the world, each of us has the capacity to touch others.
