#08 – Be happy

Be happy

Modern song lyrics like Pharrell Williams “Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth” and Bobby McFerrins’ “Don’t worry Be Happy” are not new ways of thinking. Deliberately choosing a positive mindset goes back at least 2500 years as far as the Epicureans of Ancient Greece. But humans haven’t changed much since then so it’s still very good advice. Don’t worry.

Be happy.

    Let’s have a party, or at least celebrate a change in direction. Sometimes a great things happen, but it gets drowned out by the old crowd that didn’t like that they didn’t get the idea attributed to them. Wisdom should be used as an air bag. Not a barrier.
