#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.

(I was born in St Kilda, Australia, so I chose this one. You can choose from many other versions …)

    Be happy.

    1. Happiness has come at a great price for me so I cherish every moment of it and I don’t take it for granted. It is not about having allot of money or not having any problems. It’s about finding my purpose in the world and leaving a legacy of mentorship and love.

  5. Email to self:

    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.

  6. Emoji: To my wife
    Let’s dance, the kitchen floor is waiting for us, and enjoy in this time of social isolation our love and happiness together.
