Pinterest - search Happiness boards

When happiness is in short supply, I do this.

Go to Pinterest site and search boards for “happiness”.

It will open to lot of happy images (with pins). Just give it a try and look at the result.

I am sure you will be very happy at what you are looking at.

Just copy, paste this link, or type “happiness” in the search bar in boards at PINTEREST.

Share a Hug

This one is best of all. I loved and got addicted to it for about half hour.

If you are in need of a hug, no one around, then hit this website. You will get very loving hugs from strangers. It is so thoughtful. People giving you a hug from around the world! There is nothing else in this website.

You can also share you hug in three simple steps. Just record your hug using your webcam (or any other video camera), then upload your video clip to youtube or any other video sharing site and then send the link with details about yourself (name, location, brief bio) via email.


Here are two hugs..., wish I can post all the 250+ hugs here!
