Thank you for joining us at a Happiness Index.  Our aim and goal is happiness! Each year on New Year’s Day we give and receive Happy New Year wishes. Aeeshah, my wife and I were in Los Angeles on New Year eve and saw the celebrations of welcoming of the New Year. New Year’s Day was the traditional Rose Parade followed by the college football. Our hostess cooked black eye peas, gumbo and rice. This is an ancient traditional food to ignite good luck and happiness in the New Year. The Attitudinal Healing Connection, the not for profit agency that I work for sent Happy New Year wishes as we have done for 25 years. My inbox was filled with good wishes from corporation, acquaintances, friends and families in return. This ritual of perennial good wishing is telling because almost everyone participates regardless of his or her religious affiliation. Strangers extend awesome wishes with such sincerity and joy that one has to accept and wished them peace and love in return. The challenge is how to continue and maintain our innate peace, joy and happiness throughout the year?
