Canada & Fellow Canadians
For me, a senior, (95 on July 14, 2016) the inspiration for Happiness Is Inc. casual and athletic clothing, is a combination of our beautiful geographic country, millions of deceased Canadian nation builders, including our gallant armed forces who gave their lives, and the many millions of Canadians who now populate our great country from coast to coast.
In the July/August 2012 edition of a local magazine “Spirit of the City” I read a featured article called “The Canadian Dream – O Canada”. I read the article two or three times, and my mind focused on the following excerpt “The beauty of Canada is that you can find anything. We have trouble defining it because it is whatever you want it to be – but that’s awesome”. I then concentrated on my own perception of a more inclusive definition, and arrived at “Happiness Is…™Canada”. It is concise – simple and meaningful!
In today’s world few people have a complete lifetime of happiness, but I believe we all have moments of happiness that we seek and appreciate and wish to share. I was thrilled in 2015 that Canada:
- was named “the most admired nation in the world”;
- was designated as the “6th happiness nation in the world”;
- was recognized as having one of the best educational systems in the world;
- and is now among the world leaders in climate control.
I want the “Happiness Is…™Canada” collection to serve as a lifetime inspiration for all Canadians. I want all Canadians to collaborate and continue to forge ahead as a world class nation. Perhaps one day there will be global collaboration and world-wide respect for all human beings! Let us celebrate our moments of happiness; and encourage our fellow human beings to do likewise! Let us do this in true Canadian fashion – and with no smugness.
We need a beginning! Canada and Canadians must provide that beginning for Canada and for the world! We are a young nation! LET OUR PATRIOTISM SHINE THROUGH!
WHAT BETTER TIME THAN NOW AS WE APPROACH OUR 150th ANNIVERSARY IN 2017!
