As I was younger there was a simple song that was pretty popular for a while. It was called “Celebration” and song by Kool and the Gang. The lyrics were not shocking: “Celebrate good times – come on” and “It’s a celebration”. But I loved the song because of the positivity and uplifting effect upon everyone that started to sing along.
It’s a bit like “Happy” by Pharrell Williams. To me these songs show that this is something that is inside all of us and that it wants to come out. Think about it – with these happy songs, everyone wants to join in. And even when they are not really willing to let it all out, most of the time a foot taps, a head swings or people’s fingers drum on their knee… It’s an impulse that’s hard to resist. Sad music or violent words are far less strong…
So, let’s celebrate this week! Seven thoughts to reflect upon and to get inspired by. I wish the feeling that you have a reason to celebrate every minute of your life!
