Happiness Is A Choice

Happiness is a personal choice, made repeatedly in moments throughout the day.

Years ago, I'd get bummed out watching the local news because it was so negative: crime, bad weather, conflict on city council and in neighborhoods. Then I stopped watching. I don't regret it.

I now short-circuit the habitual complainers in my life by asking, "What are you going to do about it?" I smile more than normal because mood is contagious. And I use both music and inspirational quotes when I need a pick-me-up.

If you're looking to accentuate the positive in your life, try creating a Positive Vibe Playlist. We've got a long list of uplifting and positive pop, rock, and country songs to put you in a good mood. Now go pay it forward.

1. "Good Feeling" by Flo Rida

Feel like you've already won with this 2012 hit. According to this hit, you're so awesome you could strike oil, be Bill Gates, be a genius or the king of the jungle. You are that freakin' on top of your game. Whew! Isn't it fabulous to wake up on the right side of the bed feeling like a million bucks?

Positive vibe lyrics:

Yeah I got a brand new spirit,
Speak it and it's done
Woke up on the side of the bed like I won.

2. "All I Wanna Do" by Sugarland

This upbeat country song from 2008 is about pulling the covers back up and taking the occasional day off from work so you can focus on your honey instead of your money.

I got my whole life to change the world and climb ladders
Looking at you looking at me is the only thing that matters
Come a little closer baby we can talk without words
Hang a sign on the door, "Please do not disturb."

3. "All Star" by Smash Mouth

The world may be throwing you curve balls, but swing for the fences. That's what this 1999 song is encouraging you to do.

The only way you will understand the true worth of your talent is if you show up, play the game the best you can, and shine (because you know you've got it going on, my friend). And those haters? Don't pay attention to them!

Positive vibe lyrics:

Hey, now, you're an All Star, get your game on, go play
Hey, now, you're a Rock Star, get the show on, get paid ... .

      "I Got a Feeling" and "Happy" are two of my favorites, so I'm glad they made your list. I agree that listening to upbeat music, among other things, can help lift our mood. And who doesn't need to do that from time to time? I plan to look up some of the songs I'm unfamiliar with. Thank you!

      Audrey - Thank you for your kind enthusiasm. It may have been decades since Y.M.C.A. made the charts (and I'm old enough to remember it from "back then"), but it's a perennial crowd pleaser and I sure love it! Glad you do too! Have a terrific week!

      Good Vibrations - great hub on happiness. And how can anyone be sad with Y.M.C.A? I'm all for happiness and so are you. A great way to be. Happiness is a choice. Happiness is reading this hub by FlourishAnyway!

      Carb Diva - I'm sorry to hear that you have been dealing with such stressors in your household over the last few weeks. I can empathize. There are a number of heavy things going on in my extended family right now and I like to use music (and writing) to cheer, distract and uplift. Stay strong and true to yourself. My thoughts are with you.

      So many HAPPY songs here. I can't pick one favorite--maybe 10? But I'll have to confess--whenever I here "Happy" by Pharrell I think of the animated movie Despicable Me 2.

      Past few weeks have been kinda rough in the Carb Diva household. I needed this one. What a wonderful gift on this Monday. Blessings to you for reminding me that we are as happy or as sad each day as we choose to be.

      I know some of the songs in your list this time and do find that they cheer me up. Thanks for sharing the music ideas and the inspirational quotes, Flourish. It's always nice to hear or read something uplifting!

      What a great list! I would add "Song of the Heart" by Prince from the movie Happy Feet. If you don't get a lift after hearing that, well...

      Take care!

      Oddly, it took me a moment to think of an uplifting song. I wonder what that says about me? LOL I finally remember "Don't Worry, Be Happy." Sheez, maybe I better change my radio station.

      Patricia - Thank you so much for the encouragement. Negative is not the way to be. No rewards there, long or short-term. I love that you are an upbeat, positive lady. Have a great weekend.
