My mom always told me that I have to be responsible for my own happiness. Or if you’re in a Will Smith movie – happyness. That’s a potent thing to tell a kid. At least I think it is. It’s human nature to seek happiness or entertain from being around others. At least for a vast majority of us. It’s that idea of being self sufficient for happiness that probably gives others some issues with how I interact sometimes.
I will say that relying upon one’s self for their entertainment really gives one a real sense of figuring out themselves. Maybe that could be why I have such a strong sense of self, as others have told me. So what is it that makes one happy or gives them a sense of happiness? That’s like asking why fingerprints are all different from person to person.
For me it’s sometimes simple, sometimes complex. A lot of it depends on my mood. Like right now, I’m making myself happy making a breakfast of waffles. From scratch mind you. Actually there’s a lot about cooking that I’m in tune with. I don’t know why.
The same can be said for music. There is so much about music that I really enjoy. Books too. I like to read. Movies are also a treat for me. A hike on a mountain, or a ride on a horse. All great things.
What makes you happy?
It’s a simple question, yet it’s one that so many people find extremely hard to answer. Why?
Despite that ingrained desire of self happiness, I’ve been party to writing a song about being happy when with someone. Actually, happiness can be extended when you’re with someone, it’s best not to rely on someone else for the happiness. Which is the concept of the song you’re hearing now. Written by myself and Johnny Elkins. It’s a tune about being happy when you’re with someone. We wrote it for a project called the Pieces.
Not sure what or where will happen with the song. But enjoy it for the time being. Eventually it will make it’s way to where you can purchase the song. Have a great day!
