Are You Happy?

Are you happy? Do you know it? Are you showing it? I know I am! If you’re not feeling so happy, then I challenge you to make the choice RIGHT NOW to feel happy for some moments with this song!

In the last two weeks, I’ve thought about this old children’s song, “If You’re Happy and You Know It.” It kept coming up for me, so I’ve been singing it a bit here and there and it always brings a smile to my face (and often lots of chuckles)! While the song is “allegedly” for children, I’m loving it (and do remember singing this loudly and clearly as a kid).

It’s playful, joyful, silly fun! And that means one thing to me: it’s a FEEL GOOD song that can raise us up along the emotional scale toward happiness!

So here’s my challenge: Listen to the two versions I found on YouTube and choose the one that feels like the most fun to you. If neither of them do, choose one anyway and MAKE THE CHOICE to try one anyway. Then sing along to the video and music and dance with it! Check in with yourself on how it makes you feel.

Are you feeling silly? Playful? Are you laughing? I know I am! Sometimes the simplest things can bring the greatest joy! Enjoy!
