a HAPPY little rant.

Posted: November 25, 2014 in fizzy faith

There seems to be growing intolerance in our culture, a general distrust…of happy people.

 

it’s become super cool to be cynical. There seems to be a philosophy that states stay angry & Never let anyone see you enjoy.

This has produced a horde of angry People who would rather squint that smile, they take themselves very seriously, they ooze angst. They just look constipated and pained (maybe it’s the skinny jeans).

 

That’s not me, sorry, but I’m not wired for that…

It seems that I’m wired for nonsense.

 

I’m unashamedly happy…I enjoy life…I like to giggle…most of my heroes have laugh lines & I’m working on it.

 

Happiness really seems to bug some people. I’ve had a lot of people try to steal my happy… “When are you gonna grow up”, I’m sorry, is there an age limit on fun? I’ve been passed over & put down because I’m…happy?!

Over the years, I’ve been called shallow, lightweight, lowbrow & fluffy.

It’s like you have to choose between being deep & happy.

I think you can do both, you can be deeply happy.

 

I’m not living in denial. I know, firsthand, the world can be a cold, ugly place. There is a lot of pain & we are all touched by it. Just because the world is hateful doesn’t mean I have to be. I choose happy over hate.

 

I also know that there are people who are wired very differently than me. They are serious and that is cool. If your personality is reserved, just relax & be yourself. Our happy is going to look different.

 

I really can’t take myself seriously…I know myself too well…I’ve seen myself in a bathing suit.

 

Considering the noises & smells that come out of our bodies, I really don’t think God intended for us to take ourselves seriously.

 

Happy actually makes us healthy. It’s true, look at this:

 

“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.” (Proverbs 17:22) this is one of my favorite Bible verses… It’s divine permission to get happy.

 

We need to stop taking ourselves so seriously, it only leads to disappointment.

Instead, take yourself silly. That leads to fun.

 

Lighten up people…

Get over yourself…

C’mon get happy.

Say it loud…I’m happy & I’m proud!!
