Clap Along if You Feel Like Happiness is the Truth

I've had this song stuck in my head for days... and I keep thinking it's just because I'm sweet on Pharrell (and, let's be honest, his Canadian Mounty/Bullwinkle hat).

But maybe it's more than that. In all honesty, I just wanna be happy. More than anything else, I love that feeling of having to smile on the outside coz I feel so good on the inside. 

Yesterday, I was walking on the beach at Zuma and really enjoying the sun and the clear water and the sound of the rocks and the blue of the ocean, and a man yelled to me, "Hey! Did you see the whale?" I hadn't, but I stopped and stared at the horizon with him for a few minutes while he tried to catch sight of it again. He kept saying, "It was just there, so it ought to surface again soon..." and pointing just a hair to our left. I said I didn't care. "I'll wait until it comes up. I believe you. I'm just happy someone saw it." And, of course, it surfaced soon and we smiled to each other and I kept walking.

Truth is, happiness is contagious and you wanna share it. I didn't know that guy, but I love that he wanted to share his happiness with me.

And I want you to be happy, too. Start by clicking on the video. I dare you not to snap your fingers and sing along.

xoxo Erin
