I was contemplating what I would write, hoping to be positive. All I could think about where the horrific stories that flashed on the screen while I was working out. Yuck.
I tried to do a positive on-line news site for a few years. I filled it with all the good things going on locally. People wanted the nasty stuff. I do believe they wanted the good stuff but were drawn to the negative. If I'd tossed some of the political trash & crime into the mix the site might have become more lucrative. I enjoyed it!
Anywaze, I popped over to Pharrell Williams 24 Hours of Happy, looked out my office window for a bit and cleansed my brain of all the negative. No point in focusing on all the bad in the world. Good idea to be prepared and aware, but it doesn't do a bit of good to worry and carry all the negative around.
I think one of the reasons Pharrell's tune has caught on like crazy is that we all need and want to be happy. It is uplifting. It's easy to sing, too. It's also a must-move tune! I can't even sit still in my chair as I type, gotta move.
What makes you happy? How do you get away from the things that bring us all down?
