Because I’m Happy!!

Have you ever had a song that inspired you? A song that puts you in the right mood – a happy mood – an I can conquer the world mood? When you hear this song your whole attitude changes? You could be driving in the car with your spouse arguing/talking/laughing but when that song comes on everything stops! No talking!

Well, I have a song that makes me stop and rethink my negative thoughts.

You have heard this song on the television. Many celebrities are in this commercial dancing to the tune with headphones on their heads. This song is also part of the soundtrack for Despicable Me 2.

“Happy” by Pharrell Williams

This song inspires me to be happy. Just happy!

It goes a little like this:

Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do

That is the hook to the song. Trust me I clap because that’s what I want to do because I’m so happy.

The bridge to this song truly inspires me NOT to allow anyone to bring me down or to take away my happiness.

Here it goes:

Happy, bring me down
Can’t nothing, bring me down
Love is too happy to bring me down
Can’t nothing, bring me down
I said bring me down
Can’t nothing, bring me down
Love is too happy to bring me down
Can’t nothing, bring me down
I said

In writing this piece, I was clapping and smiling! My spirits were high. I was in my own world with happy thoughts. What a good feeling!! When I hear these words, I let my worries fly away and remember all the things that make me smile, make me happy: husband, kids, family, friends, colleagues, health, career and life in general.

So when having a bad day, I play this song on my I-pod and clap because I am happy from many reasons and I do not want anything to bring me down.

So clap if you are happy. I sure did!
