Get Your Groove On with Happy Songs
Dance your blues away with Happy songs.
I dare you: Let your happy song flow from your heart.
Here is my Happy Songs playlist. These songs uplift my mood, brings a smile to my face and my body comes alive.
Soon it will be the festival of colour or Happy Holi, celebrated by Hindus all over the world.
This year it’s on 21 March 2019
In the Southern hemisphere, we are in full force summer. Abundance of colour all around us. Caressing the eyes, soothing the senses, igniting our lives with passion and excitement. The vivid hues tantalising our taste and thirst for a vibrant life. Dazzling our dreams with pulsating energy. At times calming our minds and warming our hearts. A gentle glow glimmer of hope.
I love infusing colour in my life to create Happiness, Hope and Harmony. Every morning when I awake I ponder my day and select the colour that is needed for the day. Some days are filled with positive events and activities that are full of bright colours. Other days are filled with challenges that are dark and sombre. I love to use the rainbow of colours to start the day. It’s fun and easy way to create positivity and richness in your life. Colours invoke our emotions – either positively or negatively. Let’s see how we can use colours to impact our lives and happiness. (Scientist say colours can influence your mood)
Colours invoke pure pleasure and happiness. Infusing hope for something possible. There are many colours that might make you happy but the colours that I find to simply bring the greatest amount of happiness, hope and harmony into my life are red, black and orange.
Modern society has evolved where a woman is expected to be SuperWoman. She is a mother, wife, daughter, friend, boss, career woman, housekeeper, chef, ….. These demands can really break a woman down, and that’s why we should forget about society definition of being a real woman today.

Since I have launched my 30 Day Sugar Free Sweet & Sexy for Spring Challenge (Join the challenge its FREE! www.ilovesugarfree.weebly.com), I have been thinking about the phrase “THE SWEET SPOT IN LIFE”
“The sweet spot is that place where your greatest strengths and your greatest personal power overlap with those arenas where you find ease, where there is little resistance or stress” Christine Carter
I’ve wrestled with the sweet spot for a long long time. What parts of life need to blend together to get to it? Do you know? When struggle sets in life I become stressed and sombre. I lose my mojo when I’m too tense or tired. I feel stuck and strained. I know that I can get great successes outside of my sweet spot, but my body and brain just freezes. What can I do?
Here are 3 ways we can flow into our sweet spot (easily and effortlessly):
Take Action: Pick one of the above ways to flow back to your sweet spot, and decide WHEN you will do it. Insert in your calendar or for all intentions & purposes your fire may dwindle. Where is your Sweet Spot in Life?
This is the most common question asked by people.
The auto respond is FINE. To me FINE means: Feelings I’m Not Expressing.
Well …I am FINE today. %$()@^&$%*(@#!
I am mad and pissed off as a drunk driver collided into my friend’s car and she died. One of my very dear friends. We were not traditional friends. Just merely phone friends yet she was my BFF. I guess just BF now! My heart is sore. First it was shock now its transformed into anger. I will simmer in this pot of anger. Why the senseless death?
So I decided to take the day off today. Just reflecting and pondering about life death and all the in-between bits. In many areas I have just been going with the flow and not really engaging connecting with life. Just living day in day out on auto pilot in many ways. I thought I was quite aware but my soul has been asleep. This is where I am today. Awakening the soul is for another blog. Let’s get back to how are you today.
Are you really good? In my opinion maybe not. It’s just an auto respond we have developed when people ask us how we are. When last did you figure out how you really are? How you feeling and what you thinking?
Make this a daily practice. You will see when someone asks how are you, you will go from FINE to Awesome, Great, Fab, Funtastaic, Ready to Rock the day, Perfecto, Everything is Magnifique, … create your own version of being on top of the world. Your day your life will move from mundane to magnificent
How are you today?
Do you even realise how often you tell yourself the following?
“I’m so useless.”
“I’m such an idiot.”
“I never get it right. I am so stupid
For the umpteenth time you feel disappointed in yourself, ashamed of who you are, wracked with self-disappointment and sometimes self-hate. From deep within you feel like an utter failure, convinced you’re a nobody, a waste of time. You will never make it. You will never be a somebody. You’ve become such an expert at beating yourself up. Each day you find more opportunities to feel insignificant! To stop feeling good enough.
I used to feel the same.
l found ways beating myself up for my imperfections and then no matter how well I did, no matter how much I improved, still finding fault. Always looking at what went wrong. All I did its was never good enough.
In fact, all I was doing was hating myself for being human. Punishing myself for being fallible. Suffering for trying to be like someone else.
Because all I wanted was to be loved!
And I thought if I was perfect person, the world would love me. And then I would be happy.
But the reality is, if you hate yourself so much you will never be happy, even if the whole world does love you.
To be truly happy, you need just one person to love you, and that person is YOU!.
How do you feel after pondering on the 6 truths of life?
Look in the mirror and see love, not hate.
Stop beating yourself up over everything you think, say or do. Stop criticizing yourself endlessly for all your so called ‘weaknesses’
Because every human being is born with flaws – yes its true.
Every person deserves love and support. yes they do
So feel good about yourself. oh go ahead….Feel great about yourself.
Because that person is special, unique and deserves your love.
So STOP BEING HARD ON YOURSELF.
My friend dared me to write my own happiness manifesto. So I’m picking up the gauntlet she threw down and writing my own Happiness Manifesto. With that… I promise that I love myself enough to do the following to the best of my ability at any given moment:
Say YES to Life daily
Choose love and happiness—first, last, and always
Say no to drama in my own life Laugh–unabashedly. Sing–LOUDLY. Dance–BOLDLY
Live from my heart
Make memories – Connect with people
Apologize and forgive to maintain inner peace
Give myself permission to feel what I am feeling
Eat well and exercise
Relax and breathe deeply to manage stress
Embrace on being happier
Do you what I love doing
Embrace my story, my power and be courageous
Smile often and be kind
Be silly. Read–everything
Hang out only with people who uplift my spirit
Not get stuck in a rut of self-doubt or self-recrimination
Not judge how other people live their lives
Intentionally make time for play and fun
Trust in myself and others
Believe in the good in people
Be generous and helpful
Watch less TV
Eat lots of chocolate
Cook, both simply and extravagantly.
Explore, discover and Travel
Dream big and bold
Wear ALL the colors. Be sparkly–in clothing and in spirit.
Inspire others to laugh and hope and love
Believe everything will be okay and work out
Don’t have one. Try it. It’s pretty easy once you set your pen to paper. Post your manifesto on your page and link it here, or just post it in the comments. I’d love to read it, and with each manifesto we’re changing the world.
Many things that are stealing you of your joys are habits we have developed. It’s what we believe to be correct.
If we choose to develop it, focus on it and use it. It’s also quite simple to rediscover that inner joy and happiness — it just takes a little awareness and practice to develop new thoughts and habits. Here are some areas in your life that could be preventing you from switching on your happiness:-
Be a good finder — to look for the good or some good in yourself and everything that happens and every person you meet. Actively find something good.
Use this affirmation daily: “Every day is a good day. Every place is a good place. Every person is a good person. Every thing is a good thing.” Tell yourself that until it becomes a reality in your life. In your mind and heart. A strong belief about happiness.
I believe that the more you focus on what is good and right in life and celebrate it, the more happiness you will have. So there you have it — 20 things that can steal your happiness.
We all strive to be happy. At any moment in our lives, we can change our minds and choose to be happy.
One way that we can uplift us to happy is by creating a list of things that make us happy. You thinking another list. Trust me…. just go with this.
This is a great motivational tool and reminder that we can use when we are feeling down. It’s a great up in down times. Just pick something from your personal list when you need to feel happy or just need a pick-me-up.
Of course, what makes me happy will not be the same as what makes you happy. Only you can explore and discover “What Makes You Happy?”
I thought that I would share with you my own personal list of things that happy up my life (in no particular order):
The power of I am really makes you feel great or makes you feel totally yukkie.
The power of I am can make your day or spoil your day
The power of I am can make a day of wonder or a day of disappointment
The power of I am can create adventures or leave you on the side-lines
The power of I am can create meaning or leaves you empty
The power of I am ……….what?
What is your I am? Does it empower you or discourage you?
I AM is one of the most important aspect of self-belief. It’s the driving factor in life. The ‘I AM’ decides which road to take. How the journey will be. Which spot to stop to look and admire. Which spot to drive pass and just take a glance. Sometimes just looking at the road and missing the beauty of the journey and drive. The ‘I AM’ determines how fast you go. You pass a detour – ‘I AM’ will decide to navigate the unknown route or just take the safe path. Within comfort zones.
Throughout life you’ve been through conditioning that created a mind-set overflowing with I am nots. As a schoolchild with a less than satisfactory grades, you thought to yourself, I am not smart. You place anywhere other than number one and tell yourself, I am not talented. You get told over & over that you have such great potential for all your projects. Never a word of well done. You feel criticized and believe that I am not good at anything!
You look in the mirror and compare yourself to a glamorous models tell yourself, I am not beautiful. You not asked out to the prom and you think, I am unloved or I am unworthy. These, and many many more like these I am nots, are repeated throughout your developmental years and into adulthood, and become your ingrained core defining self-perception.
Overcoming this I am not attitude begins with trusting your inner world. There are no boundaries restricting your inner world. But your worldview and your self-concept in the outer world are defined by your five senses.
How to get in touch with your I AM ….
Eg. Instead of I am incapable of getting a job, shift to I am capable.
I am unlucky in love is replaced by I am love.
I am unworthy of happiness becomes I am happiness.
