Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Bobby McFerrin ~

“Here’s a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note for note
Don’t worry, be happy
In every life we have some trouble
But when you worry you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy
Don’t worry, be happy

Ain’t got no place to lay your head
Somebody came and took your bed
Don’t worry, be happy
The landlord say your rent is late
He may have to litigate
Don’t worry, be happy…”

Don’t ever let anyone, anything, or any situation at all take away your happiness. You deserve to be happy and you are here to be happy. Worrying is a useless thing to do because it doesn’t produce any results–it just wastes your time, and time is something you can never get back.

I guess you could say there is actually a result that comes from worrying and that is stress multiplying over and over. Eventually you will get sick with something and that’s a result too. But is this the kind of outcome that you want to see in your life? I know that I don’t want it in mine. I work very hard to keep all of me in balance.

Worrying all the time is just a bad habit that you got yourself into, and like all habits you can break this one–I know because I did just that years ago. Whenever you start to worry about something, see the worry, and then let it go. Refuse the temptation to follow it. Fill your mind with happy thoughts. Practice over and over until the worry thoughts stop happening.

Filling your mind with good thoughts and meditating always works to keep you a happy soul. Look around you, life is short isn’t it? You don’t want to spend your time on this journey doing something that fixes nothing, so what good is it? Being happy makes you feel so good and everyone around you too! An added benefit is that You’ll probably live a healthier and longer life. I don’t think anymore ever regretted living a happy life.
