Dallas, TX (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
The Secret Society of Happy People will celebrate the 13th Annual Happiness Happens Month in August.
The purpose of Happiness Happens Month is to help people recognize that happiness happens even in the middle of chaos and unhappiness.
“We don’t want people to deny unhappiness because we’re happiness realist,” say Society Founder Pamela Gail Johnson. “The purpose of the month is to help people keep unhappy or chaotic moments in a balanced perspective to their happy ones.”
The Society has identified the 31 Types of Happiness to help people increase their happy awareness so they can recognize more happiness. The Society even offers the Secret Society of Happy Peoples Thirty-One Types of Happiness Guide available in print or ebook.
