Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Good morning, dear friends πŸ˜€

Life comes with its ups and downs. It is really easy to enjoy the good times that we have, but it is when we are down with problems in wealth, health, at work or relationships, that we find it very tough to go through life. πŸ˜₯

However, it is the successful dealing with these problems that makes us stronger and stronger. I know, this is easier said than done, for it is when we are right smack in the middle of whatever problems that we may be facing, that we often experience utter despair and misery.

But….we can still help ourselves by gathering a little bit of strength here and there, just enough to motivate us to go through life one step at a time…instead of being stuck in a rut with our problems. πŸ˜‰

Here is something that I had read from a healing site, and I find that it makes a lot of sense…..

Two Days We Should Not Worry

There are two days in every week about which we should not worry,
two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.

One of these days is Yesterday with all its mistakes and cares,
its faults and blunders, its aches and pains.

Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control.
All the money in the world cannot bring back Yesterday.
We cannot undo a single act we performed; we cannot erase a single word we said.

Yesterday is gone forever.

The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow with all its possible adversities, its burdens, its large promise and its poor performance;


Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control.

Tomorrow’s sun will rise,
either in splendour or behind a mask of clouds, but it will rise.


Until it does, we have no stake in Tomorrow,
for it is yet to be born.
This leaves only one day, Today.


Any person can fight the battle of just one day.
It is when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities
Yesterday and Tomorrow that we break down.

It is not the experience of Today that drives a person mad,
it is the remorse or bitterness of something which happened Yesterday
and the dread of what Tomorrow may bring.

Let us, therefore, live but one day at a time.

Coincidentally, I heard this song on the radio while I was driving my daughter to work this morning – this simple song called “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” by Bobby McFerrin was a big hit back in 1988 and it was the first a capella song to make it to number one on the Billboard Hot 100. Ijust love this song because the advice in it is so comforting and I like to be told to not worry and just be happy about life. πŸ˜†

This song is dedicated to my dearest friend from Romania, Rose, who is now recovering from a stroke and has just been discharged from the hospital. πŸ˜‰

Here are the meaningful lyrics –

Don’t Worry, Be Happy
From the Movie “Cocktails”
Performed by Bobby McFerrin


Here is a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note for note
Don’t worry be happy


In every life we have some trouble
When you worry you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy
……

Ain’t got no place to lay your head
Somebody came and took your bed

Don’t worry, be happy


The landlord say your rent is late
He may have to litigate
Don’t worry, be happy
Look at me I am happy
Don’t worry, be happy


Here I give you my phone number
When you worry call me
I make you happy
Don’t worry, be happy

Ain’t got no cash, ain’t got no style
Ain’t got not girl to make you smile
But don’t worry be happy

Cause when you worry
Your face will frown
And that will bring everybody down
So don’t worry, be happy (now)…..

There is this little song I wrote
I hope you learn it note for note
Like good little children
Don’t worry, be happy


Listen to what I say
In your life expect some trouble
But when you worry
You make it double
Don’t worry, be happy……

Don’t worry don’t do it, be happy
Put a smile on your face
Don’t bring everybody down like this
Don’t worry, it will soon pass
Whatever it is
Don’t worry, be happy

With love, peace and joy,

    Dearest choesf !

    Your words brought tears in my eyes !I cried because I ‘m happy for severel reasons : first of all because God gave me a Friend like you;

    when the doctor discharged me from the hospital she told me to be happy because I got the chance to born again;

    now, 4 weeks after the stroke I can walk across the house wiith a knobstick,I can write you with my left hand, and dress up;

    most of all I’m happy because my mind is clear and I didn’t lose the ability of speaking .

    …:) and I don’t worry at all; I’ m doing small progresses every day and I’m sure that I’ll recover completely.Please believe me, I never was happier in my life. I know its price now!

    Thank you for being! Love and hugs.Te pup, rose
