It’s been said to me many times in the past couple of months. Be the energy you want to have from others. Sometimes that’s a tough thing to accomplish. However, it’s getting easier. The more I let go of expectations and the more I attempt to be in the moment the better it is. Probably why I like getting friends together to gather at my house to play some games. Meaning things like Scategories, or Pictionary, Balderdash, Apples to Apples, Cranium, and Scrabble. Those are all great games. A great way to get people together and have some fun. Raise that energy level and that happiness factor.
An amazing time with less people happy. I watched a little segment a moment ago online where Conan O’Brien had a guest on (my apology as I don’t know who it was) that was talking about how we currently live in an amazing time and people are less happy. This guest felt that current technology is being wasted on a spoiled generation. I’m not really all the aware of how spoiled the generation is, but I can tell how less people are happier at the moment, which when you really think about it, it is weird.
The examples the guy gives about phones and airplanes are really quite funny. I would also have to throw in GPS, laptop computers, and other creature comforts. I know I’ve had my share of moments where I’ve been disappointed with technology. But then it takes a moment to step back and realize, damn, I’ve got all this power in the palm of my hands. It really is quite astounding. No question about it.
Therein contains the reason as to why games like those I’ve mentioned actually can make people happy because it removes that technology factor, reintroduces the brain and companionship. Something we all inherently need. I don’t care who you are, we all need interaction.
The easy premise behind the song you’re hearing now. John and I wrote it with the intention of sending out good vibes into the universe. It’s not meant to cure cancer, or be some heavy handed look into the psyche of the world. No, this song is meant to make you bounce around the room, shake head, tap your feet and wear a smile. I’m willing to bet that most of us have a person in our lives that we’re simply happy when ever we think about them and especially when we’re actually with them in the same room or area.
Go ahead and leave a message about that person right here on Single of the Day and let them know you’re happy to have them around and in your life! It will make you feel great and help to spread some joy in the world. As it’s said, be the energy you want in the world.
