Let's Get Happy Now!

Jana Stanfield is one of my musical happiness loves with my all-time fave, I am Not Lost, I am Exploring (next post). While perusing her You Tube Selections, I found she had been on a TedX stage with this amazing song. I Cannot Do All The Good that the World Needs ... It's so happy and inspiring, you'll be singing along and dancing too. Love it! And, just maybe, you'll want to do some good where you are.

Peace out with this binaural audio for serotonin release and happiness.


My Personal Favorites by Sandy Penny

The first song I ever realized was my theme song just powerfully washed over me the first time I ever heard it. I have made many choices that went against common belief systems and the advice of friends and family, but my spiritual guidance required something more of me. When I heard this song, it was like a confirmation of my choices. I have shared it worldwide with individuals and groups, and it has always been a powerful experience for those who listened. I hope you like it too.

Jana Stanfield's "I Am Not Lost, I Am Exploring."

Since I have always been connected to a vision greater than the typical 3-D life experience, I believe in magic, I believe in the power of love, and I believe that there are no limitations for us as co-creators with the divine power of the creator of all things. When I heard this song, it gave me wings.

R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly."

And for connection and experiences with other friends, lovers and family, this song says so much about love, joy and life. I was on my way to a funeral of a good friend, when this song started playing on my car radio, and the voice of my friend asked me to tell his wife to play this song at his funeral. It was so powerful for everyone there, especially his wife. And there is a movie called Truly, Madly, Deeply about a woman whose husband comes back from the other side to make sure she is happy. Gave me amazing chills over my whole body.

If you know anyone who needs a good proofreader for their final novel drafts, please share my Fresh Eyes Proofing link with them. And, a fun thing, I discovered a song online called "Fresh Eyes" by Andy Grammer. It's not spelled like grammar, but what fun anyway. You can listen to it on my Fresh Eyes page. Just click the pic:


Joy in All Things

Tibetan Circle Dance

You've heard the saying, bloom where you are planted. Here's a great example of that. Pure joy in the snow. A little winter inspiration.

"We are born in the land of snow (Tibet), we have been with snow for thousands of years, and this is how we dance with snowflakes of winter"

All over the world, people dance their joy, dance their grief, dance their hopes and dance in praise of the life they live. I hope you'll dance.

Friends Come in All Sizes

One of my all time favorite little videos on friendship. Take a moment to listen for today's happiness hit.

You've got a friend in me.

"Bubbles, a 9,000-pound elephant, and Bella, the Labrador retriever, are the very best of friends. They live together at the Myrtle Beach Safari in South Carolina. And luckily, the park has documented some of the pair's adorable interspecies playdates. Sometimes, Bubbles and Bella go for walks together. Other times, they go for long swims. Bubbles was adopted by the safari in 1983, according to the video above. Then, in 2007, a contractor who was hired to build Bubbles a swimming pool abandoned puppy Bella at the park's preserve. And so, a beautiful friendship was born." ~From the Huffington Post

Have you hugged your friends today?
