Celebrating World Happiness Day 2018!

“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today (March 20) is World Happiness Day! I hope that your day was filled with happiness and if it was not, I hope that there was some measure of happiness for you today! If it hasn’t been like that yet please know that the day is not over and happiness will greet you soon. It will appear in the form of laughter, a smile or a kind word.

Happiness we can all agree should come from within and can manifest itself through any of the ways mentioned above- in a smile, a kind word, a thoughtful gesture or just pure laughter!

Here is a link to some quotes which I found and I am happy to share:

Hopefully there is something there which can resonate with you and also something that was able to pique your interest.

In continuing allow me to ask,  have you heard what the UN report said about Trinidad and Tobago’s happiness Index? Please have a look at this video:

Now look at Trinidad and Tobago in relation to the top 10 countries that are the happiest in the world.

Now stop for a minute and ask yourself what makes Finland the world’s happiest country. Then be sure to look at the video below.

In closing this is my message to you: Spread the love, spread the laughter, spread the happiness! 

Stay away from anyone who tries to steal your happiness! If you cannot stay away from the one who tries to steal your happiness just do not let them or their negativity or their nonsense get the better of you!

From me to you, Happy International Happiness Day 2018!

It’s a lot and I am using this opportunity to share some of it! Click on the links as you come upon them.

Take note of the photographs, the video footage and all the information that is shared. Here we go:

The first story focuses on sad news. There was a lot of damage done! Thank God that you are safe, sound and alive! A 6.4 magnitude earthquake hit Taiwan.

This is information regarding the same earthquake that was reported 11 hours earlier.

The US, UK, Spies Agencies and Media Companies….what’s the connection? Check this out:

This is a little closer to home and it is about a crisis in Haiti which has turned deadly:

At this stage too news world be incomplete without mention of the Zika virus. This was released a mere 18 hours ago and it focuses on precautions that men should take regarding this virus-

For those who might be considering travelling this bit of information might prove to be useful as it focuses on Puerto Rico’s governor declaring a health emergency as more Zika-related cases emerge:

Here is information on a much lighter note. Star Wars continues to be a big hit as expected. Here is the proof:

This is one of the first things that grabbed my attention this morning

Celebrating Music

Music is my solace and it’s a sign I’m relaxed. Hearing me singing and enjoying music is something not many may have witnessed but it’s something Shiva has witnessed on so many occasions. I’ve never gotten around to taping it for those who might find it hard to believe, but the truth is, at that moment you’re thoroughly enjoying the moment.

There is so much truth in these statements:

Bob Marley -“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.”

Friedrich Nietzsche- “Without music, life would be a mistake.”

Victor Hugo- “Music expresses that which  cannot be put into words and that which  cannot remain silent.”

We don’t feel pain when we are really into the music do we? We don’t. Further to this, can we imagine life without music? Surely we cannot, now can we? Music is just so full of energy and rhythm. The lyrics, the beat and everything we can think about are proof that it’s soothing, through and through!

It’s pure therapy for most, including me. It relaxes and it’s healing also. Here is an example:

Can you think of the effect soca, calypso and parang have on Trinidadians and Tobagonians! It’s the perfect example especially when Carnival and Christmas come around.

Just a few weeks the Digicel Rising Stars 2015 completed. Now in Trinidad and Tobago we can all agree that is a big thing as it’s local talent and an outpouring of our local talent . The winner was Angela Didier. Here is some of what you missed:

This past week marked the Finals of The Voice Season 9. It was such a great season that was also overflowing with pure talent.

Music appeals to us in various ways. It means different things to all of us!

Now this is how I need your help everyone! I really would appreciate it! Please share your responses to these two questions:

What does music mean to you?

Which song/ songs make you laugh? Which songs make you sing along?

Hopefully you have enjoyed this but please remember I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
