The noblest art is that of making others happy…PT Barnum
Be happy now, if you can.
Here’s a little something to make you smile. It’s Pharrell Williams and Minions. That should put you in a lighter mood today.
We as a society and community can get so mired down in the serious things of our lives we forget to enjoy the fun stuff. There is nothing wrong with listening to a pop song, enjoying a guilty pleasure or eating something you really shouldn’t. Right now we live in a world that is full of sadness and hate that we need those moments of silliness, levity, grace to remind us of our humanity. I read a lot of posts and some of those I have written about the world being a dark place to be but we need to remember how to bring some light into the darkness.
Perhaps we should not try to grow up so fast that we forget the fun that can be had today and every day. My friends the world isn’t entirely bad, people aren’t always out to get you and perhaps pursue excellence in being a living person who smiles and laughs in equal measure to crying and frowning. Enjoy the fun of being imperfect, broken, human. Be alive today, you only get one shot at this life.
People would do well to not take things so seriously. We should learn to have fun and chill out. Overthinking things can be a problem too. Our prior experiences can color our view of the present. If we all just decided to be intentionally positive and happy perhaps the world would be a better place to be in and people would be more pleasant to be around. Even in tough times it’s OK to get happy.
