I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY






DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY is the title and principal lyric of a song by musician Bobby McFerrin. In September of 1988, it became the first a cappella song to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and held that position for two weeks. On the UK Singles Chart, the song reached number 2 during its fifth week on the chart. At the 1989 Grammy Awards, DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY won the awards for Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. The song's title is taken from a famous quote by Meher Baba. The original music video stars Robin Williams and Bill Irwin. The "instrumentals" in the a cappella song are entirely overdubbed voice parts and other sounds made by McFerrin, using no instruments at all. I chose this as my first song for the month because I realize that I need to retreat N’ recover. This week had me feeling drained, and my distinct lack of energy lead me to question whether I am fit to proceed with life plans. So this simple yet powerful song helps me to regain usual liveliness as I embrace my solitude. Because it is within solitude that I can find the strength to continue working tirelessly in the pursuit of life and I will remember to DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY…
