Do you choose to be happy?

Some realize that being happy is often a choice. The song "Happy" by Pharrell Williams is one that seems to get money in a good mood. The video, shared below, is fun. For me, I would question how anyone could watch him and not be in a better mood! If you choose to watch the video "Happy" by Pharrell Williams, hope you enjoy it!

I remember very well this song, not because I like it, but because it was banned in Iran and some young people were arrested there while dancing the "Happy" song.

@PatZAnthony It was in every European newspaper when it happened. Here is a piece of news about 6 Iranians sentenced to 91 lashes and jail for appearing in a video dancing to Pharrell Williams' song "Happy"
Six Iranians arrested for filming a video tribute to Pharrell Williams' song Happy are sentenced to 91 lashes and jail terms, their lawyer says.

I don't get people like that @PatZAnthony if I see a happy person I just get happier. Could be those that are annoyed are a tad bit jealous.

@rebelann A few have told me and others in the family it is not normal to be happy all the time. What? Rather be happy than to be like them.

There was once in my lifetime I was very unhappy. I had to teach myself to be happy. It is such an elusive thing.

Yes, it can be elusive and we can learn that happiness is within our reach.

@Gita17112016 Being happy is a choice some of us have to make daily. We sometimes have to look for something to smile about, and it is not always easy.

I think you can in some degree. I choose not to worry as much as some do. I'm not even that "freaked out" about Trump's election. But for those with serious anxiety or depression issues, it can be harder. It can be difficult to get out of bed, to eat, to get stuff done, to listen well to others, etc.

@PatZAnthony I'm glad that I tend to be optimistic and friendly, even though I do have my dark and cynical moments. In my case, I think it IS partially a choice. When people say, "Life sucks, and then you die," I don't disagree with them. But I'd rather say, "Today, I play music with a friend, and then I watch a little football."

@TheHorse We all have those moments, but if we can pull back into our happy mood, we are the better for it, as are others around us.

I read a book about being happy once and the thing that stuck with me was that, in many cases, happiness is a decision. And what a great song and dance! Thanks for the link. :)

It is a decision. Each day offers us a few minutes upon awakening to go in one direction or the other.

@PatZAnthony And we can choose how we react to this, that and the other. Fly off the handle, let it slide, be offended, blah blah. We can actually make life a lot happier for ourselves once we become aware that we can choose our reaction.

I believe I don't need videos like that to change my mood. I can be happy when I go to the sea or exercise or do something different than my usual routine. I like listening to Joyce Meyer's ministry as she reminds me that happiness is a choice.

Joyce Meyers often has some good points. Happiness is a choice for many of us, while others like to concentrate on the gloom and doom in the world.

A great cheery song - one worth playing if we need cheering up as is Don't Worry Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin
