Happy Song List 16/02/2016

There’s a little twist to todays list because that’s the way the Universe played it and how the Universe inspired me. Have an awesomely, fantabulous mind-blowing day. I know I will because I am set up now.

No. 1 = Everybody Dance Now – From Evan Almighty

When I was growing up Monty Python was banned from our house because my mum was religious and banned it because of the film ‘Life of Brian’ but I had heard of the Ministry of Silly walks. I have my own secret ministry of silly dances and when I saw the film Evan Almighty and saw  new commandment ‘Thou Shalt do the Dance’ I instantly had a thought. When I return to non-physical and if my loved ones so choose to have some kind of ceremony to send me off my daughters know the plan. Right at the end of the ceremony they have to play C+C Music Factory – Everybody Dance now. It is my wish that all present ‘Thou Shalt do the Dance’.

No. 2 = Now that We Found Love – Heavy D and the Wedding Dance scene from Hitch

Heavy D and of course The Boyz make it law to do the silly dance when I hear this song and it is now law that you also ‘Do the Dance’ when you hear it from this day forward.

No. 3 = Justin Bieber & James Corden’s Post Grammys Drive

I have loved James Corden since I first saw him in a series called ‘Fat Friends’ (2000 – 2005) and I have a very memorable morning after the night before with my best friend sat on the sofa sharing a blanket, bowls of Pom Bears in hand and she asked “Do you watch Gavin & Stacey?”. Several enjoyable hours passed as I caught up with series 1 and ‘A League of their Own’ is one of my favourite programs and I am just filled with more and more joy as I watch his career sore because James is  for me the epitome of how life should be. The more grateful and joyous your are. The more the Universe will give to be grateful and joyous about.

Today your mission if you choose to take it is …………. to find the joy and gratitude in everything that happens then let me know what you were joyous and grateful for.

I Feel a shift 2



A few months ago I wrote the blog post “I Feel a Shift” because I had started to notice a happiness habit-forming despite of all the usual negative media we are bombarded with and asked the question was anyone else seeing too?

I was seeing adverts on TV with a more positive slant. One showing people carrying out Random Acts of Kindness that was having a chain reaction.

Talking of Random Acts of Kindness I watched Evan Almighty again and the weekend and for many of a year I have planned to have everyone do the dance at my funeral before they leave the venue so they leave on a High, as well as play Louis Armstrong’s ‘Wonderful World ‘ and Nina Simone’s ‘Feeling Good’.

A couple of days ago I learnt I must confess from one of my favourite past times … Reading Pam Grouts Blog about women from my country but not county unfortunately or I would shake her hand was requesting her followers retweet the idea that we are seeing more good news and getting the idea we should love our enemy. The the other bit of information gained from the fabulous Ms Grout was that this lady had tweeted about a former anti-Muslimist who went to his local Mosque to apologize. I clicked on the Huff Post article and reading it made my heart want to burst with happiness.

It’s easy to feel happy about things and people we love but not so easy about things we don’t like and people we don’t love (No SxxT Sherlock! I hear you cry) but the other day reading more about Epigenetic’s and how negative thinking can have a harmful effect on our bodies I  knew it was in my best interests to love even my enemy.

I also read recently (I read a hell of a lot, it is my passion and it was probably by Ms Grout  but I have read so much by so many I lose track,) some advise that when someone is annoying you, unpleasant etc say silently inside “Bless You”. Well reading this fitted right in with my loving my enemy help myself philosophy because when someone is unpleasant I just remember to say “Bless You” followed by their name.

Shortly after gaining the information that other people are sharing the, or encouraging the Happiness Habit I watch on TV a British Celebrity discussing the sequence of events that led him to write a book containing short funny poems and until the “Sequence of Events” or the Universe doing what it does best he had never written a poem before in his life and his motive was to make people happy because as he said in his words “There appears to be a lot of not so nice things going on in the world and we seem to forget that there ‘IS’ things to be happy about and we spend so much time worrying about things that aren’t even going to happen, I just wanted to make people smile and have a little bit of happiness”

Well after shouting a loud “Yes” at the TV I felt inspired to write a post about the “obvious growing” shift in happiness and just as I consciously made the decision I saw my phone light up. I’d been tagged in a post by my daughter. When I investigated she had nominated me in something that must be going around on social network, to upload 5 photo’s that make you happy.

Yep there is definitely a Shift happening
