There is this utterly annoying song that's been playing for the past two months all over the radio. At first, it was cute and even a little inspiring. But lately, all I want to do is break things when I hear it. I'm sure you've all heard Pharell's single "Happy."
I'm not a total ogre. But this song has over stayed it's welcome. Don't get me wrong, it's cute and has a beautifully, positive message but I can only hear it so many times before my head feels like it's going to explode.
Well, my love/hate relationship with the damn song has made me think a lot about where I am in my life, what I want to do, where I want to be....
Some of these things I have yet to figure out but I can say this...
I don't believe living a life where I'm living to work rather than working to live is ideal. I think so many of us get so caught up in day to day responsibilities that we forget to take some time to do the things we really enjoy.
We forget to check in with those we care about. We forget to spend time with them. Time, which we have so little of. Time which is so precious. We forget that we can choose to feel the way we want to feel and end up dwelling on all the things that drive us crazy and upset us.
Yes, we have goals and dreams to accomplish but if we don't take time from our busy schedules to stop and live in the present with those we most care about than what is the point of moving forward?
So while your song is incredibly annoying, Pharrell, after hearing it for two months straight.... I get your point. Stop and choose to live happily and don't allow your every day responsibilities to ruin the good there is to enjoy
