DAY 19 - A SONG THAT MAKES ME HAPPY

This is Day #19 of 30 SONGS IN 30 DAYS and Day #9 of 30 TRUTHS IN 30 DAYS. 
 
Life is like a rollercoaster ride with lots of ups and downs. It's noisy and scary at times and sometimes our heightened anticipation meets with an uneventful climax. The amazing thing about life is that worrying about things NEVER changes the outcome. If we all just relax a little and take ten deep breaths before reacting, we might find sometimes things change in the blink of an eye. The impossible becomes possible and the strength we thought we didn't have is right there when we need it most. I always say things happen just the way they were meant to happen. Remember slow and steady wins the race so don't worry, be happy!
 
TRUTH #9 - THINGS YOU SHOULD GIVE UP TO BE HAPPY:
 
    1. Give up your need to always be right
    2. Give up your need for control
    3. Give up on blame
    4. Give up your self-defeating self-talk
    5. Give up your limiting beliefs
    6. Give up complaining
    7. Give up the luxury of criticism
    8. Give up your need to impress others
    9. Give up your resistance to change
    10. Give up labels
    11. Give up on your fears
    12. Give up your excuses
    13. Give up the past
    14. Give up attachments
    15. Give up living your life to meet other people's expectations

  1. I just turned my brain off for the last four minutes and listened to this song! It's been so long since I heard it or seen this video...
    Still unforgettable. Wow. I don't know if it's the words, the faint Caribbean accent and beat of the song, or Robin Williams, but I think it did actually make me happy for a few minutes. Go figure! LOL

  2. "Don't worry, be happy" should be everyone's mantra until at least the New Year.

  3. This is a very good and sensible list. Yoda approves.
