Happy Days are here again
Happiness has been a top priority in my life for about 3 or 4 years but the last couple of months I have really be thinking, researching and communicating with my closest friends and family about how if affects our lives and the people we surround ourselves with.
I feel like I have figured this out long ago... I think it started when my Dad passed away. I started saying annoying mottos like "You may die tomorrow so you might as well do what makes you happy today" or "don't save things for a special occasion - if something makes you feel good, do it and use it now." For real... Annoying. But I can't stop saying it. Every time I start talking about something other than the weather with someone, it turns to happiness.
I don't want to preach or anything but I truly believe that if you are happy in life you will not only affect the people you come in contact with but will live a very fulfilled life. Who wants to wake up one morning when you are 85 years old and realize that you weren't really happy most of your life and that you have many regrets??? Fuck that. That's fucking retarded. There may be reincarnation or a heaven or some kind of energy that we turn into after we die but all we really know is what is happening in this life time. The here and now is really all we have. We can look towards the future but really only the present is what we can experience. Why would you want to live the only life that we know of, as an unhappy one? It just doesn't make sense to me.
I don't really have anything to sum up. Just be happy, bitches!!! Stop your fucking whining and be grateful you have your health, family and friends who love you.
I know that I'm grateful for it... But then again, I'm an annoying motto sayer...
