Live Laugh Love Day

Live Laugh Love Day is January 26

#LiveLaughLove is one of the more popular hashtags used today and the expression is popular in quotes, cards, wall stickers and more. Today is the day to celebrate the origin of this expression that reminds us that life if for living, laughing and loving. The Date, January 26th was chosen in honor of Ellen DeGeneres who has inspired millions to live, love and laugh on a daily basis. This is a day we celebrate with Ellen, on her birthday, to appreciate her daily aspirations, fun and laughter. 

So how did this expression get started?

The first reference we could find in history is from a poem called “Success” by Bessie Anderson Stanley.

He has achieved success 
who has lived well, 
laughed often, and loved much; 

who has enjoyed the trust of 
pure women, 

the respect of intelligent men and 
the love of little children; 

who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; 

who has left the world better than he found it 
whether by an improved poppy, 
a perfect poem or a rescued soul; 

who has never lacked appreciation of Earth’s beauty 
or failed to express it; 

who has always looked for the best in others and 
given them the best he had; 

whose life was an inspiration; 
whose memory a benediction. 

The words have been attributed to others who paraphrased them or used similar expression, but Stanley was the original.
