Shiny Happy People~

There is an REM song titled Shiny Happy People that gives me inspiration for today. 

I woke up this morning with a headache and my foot has been bothering me for a couple of weeks.  As I lay in bed I reflected on thoughts of how comfy the bed was and how warm and cozy I felt cuddling with my kitty.  I briefly thought about playing hooky from work and just staying home all day.  Especially because I knew that I had a very light workload today.  Very tempting!

But my sense of responsibility made me force myself to get up and feed the cats, take my shower, and start my day.  As I stood in the shower feeling the warm water flow over me I thought about my life and how I have been inspired and how blessed I am to have the people around me that I do.  Especially recently.  It seems that negativity and drama seem to have disappeared from my life and shiny happy people have appeared in their place.  What an awesome gift! 

Maybe it's because I'm happier with myself these days that I am attracting these kinds of people into my life.  Maybe I've cleared the air at work with enough gold dust to have avoided or changed workplace drama into harmony.  Or maybe I've been a good influence on friends and family and I just don't notice or get sucked into their drama any longer.  I can sympathize, empathize, and be a moral support to them but I can't allow their drama or unhappiness to disturb my well-being.  Maybe it was just going away for a few days and being in a city that I love with a daughter that I adore and not stressing about anything more than what to eat for my next meal or what shop I wanted to visit next.  Who knows for sure?  But what I do know for sure is that I like this feeling and it makes me like my life right now.  Joylicious~

Shiney Happy People - REM

Shiny happy people laughing
Meet me in the crowd
People people
Throw your love around
Love me love me
Take it into town
Happy happy
Put it in the ground
Where the flowers grow
Gold and silver shine

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Everyone around love them, love them
Put it in your hands
Take it take it
There's no time to cry
Happy happy
Put it in your heart
Where tomorrow shines
Gold and silver shine

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing
