08 Dec 9 Reasons To Be Happy (In Picture Form)
Pharrell Williams blockbuster hit “Happy” has racked up a jaw-dropping 913,295,133 views on YouTube from the date of this blog post.
“Happiness Makes The World…Happier!”
Happiness makes the world go round.
That’s what this song did for the world.
When he released his blockbuster hit in 2013, which was part of the soundtrack to the equally mega blockbuster Movie ‘Despicable Me 2′, Pharrell says he had no idea the song would become such a mega hit. It didn’t just become a mega hit.
It became an EPIC MEGA hit.
Suddenly everybody was releasing their ‘Happy’ version.
Log on to youtube and you’ll see Corporate Organizations, Universities, Hospitals, kids, mothers and fathers…even priests dancing along in their own goofy way to the song of 2013.
The Need To Be Happy
It says a lot, doesn’t it.
It says everyone just wants to be happy. It also says that people are generally not happy.
That’s why it struck a universal nerve.
Throw aside all the deception, anger, mistrust, lies, betrayal, rudeness, aloofness, unforgiveness, stress and deceit and you’re left with the most basic of human needs – happiness.
That’s why we spend all your time in the morning sending cat memes via WhatsApp and Facebook.
I like this Chinese proverb that says:
“If you want happiness for an hour — take a nap.’
If you want happiness for a day — go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year — inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime — help someone else.”
That’s why a funny story will always win the day over some trumped up gossip about someone you know.
Now, we may not be able to replicate Pharrell’s super humongous success, but here are some pictures that may just do the trick for you tonight on your way home!
