“Happy” Makes Me Happy :)

Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” has made a lasting impression on people around the world and, as a result, we can see many videos that recorded different locations with people smiling and dancing to the catchy tunes. FYI, Pharrell had previously made a full day’s worth of footage of him and a bunch of strangers (and celebs) singing this song in various locations. The song is the OST of “Despicable Me 2”.

I like watching these videos because I also get to see different parts of the world and how the local people act and express themselves through music –which I think is the most universal language in the world. If you haven’t been to any of these places, well, it is also a good teaser to inspire your next trip.

So, cheers to Sydney, cheers to Montreal, salute to Firenze, sláinte to Dublin, prost to Cologne, egészségére to Budapest,  santé to Paris, gezondheid to Leeuwarden, etc… Hopefully the video will inspire dance-off in many more countries! Definitely looking forward to seeing one from Asia. After all, smiling and dancing are the best medicines in the world. Enjoy the videos!

IMHO, the song is a well-deserving single for an Oscar!

Walking with Father J

There is a hole, a gap in me that cannot be filled with anything but Jesus. He found me when I was very young and I’ve been talking to Him ever since.

He knows me even before I knew who He was. And no one knows me better than Him.

There were times I hurt Him, every now and then, and when it happened I lost my peace.

But He never leaves me.

The same mighty savior who found Paul, Zakheus, C.S. Lewis… The only living God who once had lived as a man –who would understand my every bit of sorrow.

God knows I don’t ask for this life, for my life is still a painful happiness because I have always been a solitaire.

Maybe that’s why I like yoga. It makes sense that a more bubbly and outgoing person would choose sports like balley dancing or salsa over yoga. It is the perfect sport for loners (whether or not they are lonely people).

I have written several series about Him, my sorrows and the conversations we had. One day, if God’s willing, I would publish it. But my life isn’t a full circle just yet, so I need to learn and listen more.

No matter what, thank you Father for never letting me go.
