Hokey Pokey Addiction


If anyone knows me, they know that I love the Hokey Pokey, so when I found this fabulous quote, I knew I needed to add it to my happy blog.  If you don't already know, the Hokey Pokey was a song and dance that just made you happy doing it.  It goes like this...

"You put your right foot in, you put your right foot out,
You put your right foot in and you shake it all about...
You do the hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around,
Thats what it's all about!"

The song doesn't end there, and in fact it goes on with more verses shaking your body and turning yourself around, and jumping in and jumping out.  Oh I have great memories doing the Hokey Pokey at  some Family Christmas Parties when I was a little girl.  I don't remember very much about those parties, but I do remember doing the Hokey Pokey.  I also remember that my Grandmother use to ask, after the dance ended, "Does anyone want to do it again?"  All the grand kids would cheer and yell, "YES!"  I don't remember how many times we did this dance over and over, but I remember it snowing outside, but because we were shaking it inside, I was sweating.  I remember my Uncle Leo, really getting into this dance, and the smile on my own Grandpa's face, as he watched everyone buy him doing the dance.

If you want to be happy, during the holiday season, I would highly recommend you download a copy of the Hokey Pokey, and dance with your kids.  Everyone will love it and you will be doing one of the greatest things to make yourself and other happy, and that is spending fun time with family, and making a memory that will last for a lifetime.

So if you have not figured out yet the links to the Hokey Pokey, here is the link:

Thanksgiving invitation template (Free!)

I am posting this freebie printable invitation on several of my blogs, so more of you can find it and be able to use it for your Thanksgiving dinner invitation.  Feel free to use it and enjoy. If you go to my other blog at here, you should be able to find my other invitation that I created a few years back that was so popular.  I really have no idea just how many people use what I create and give away but it would be a nice little experiment if you would just post a tiny and short message as how you are going to use it and what your thoughts are about Thanksgiving. I found this adorable Turkey here:

 I have a second little freebie/gift that I wanted to share too.  It is a door hanger, that has a wonderful message on it.  Read the message and then spend some time pondering how it impacts you. This isn't to make you feel guilty about anything, but more so to help remind you to become aware of those around you.  Thanksgiving is a time of year when we can reflect on those blessings we have been given, and show our gratitude for the goodness of God in blessing our lives.
So why am I blogging about this on a "HAPPY" blog?  It is because there is a secret that needs to be let out of the bag.  I have actually written a book about it that is now out and selling all over the place.  It is short, but has a great message.  It's illustrated, so it isn't boring.  I hope if you have a chance to get your hands on a copy (or make yourselves take the chance to get one) that you will apply the principles and learn the secret of being happy.  My book is the name of this blog "If you want to be happy give something away." I am practicing what I preach and I am giving away to you these little gifts.  I hope you will enjoy them and drop me a note to say "HI!"  By the way, I am selling my book on Amazon and if you decide to get yourselves a copy, be sure to buy it from Discoveryshops, which is my store. Just type in the Amazon search bar, "If you want to be happy give something away" and click below the where it gives you a variety of sellers of my book.  Please pick mine!  It would certainly make me Happy if you did.  ha, ha. Enjoy!  Kathleen Gauger

Put on a Happy Face!

Oh how the lyrics of this song can change a sad face to a happy one.  Here is the video clip for you to enjoy and you can follow along the lyrics below.  No... go put on a Happy Face!


,
Gray skies are gonna clear up,
Put on a happy face;
Brush off the clouds and cheer up,
Put on a happy face.

Take off the gloomy mask of tragedy,
It's not your style;
You'll look so good that you'll be glad
Ya' decide to smile!

Pick out a pleasant outlook,
Stick out that noble chin;
Wipe off that "full of doubt" look,
Slap on a happy grin!

And spread sunshine all over the place,
Just put on a happy face!
Put on a happy face
Put on a happy face

And if you're feeling cross and bitterish
Don't sit and whine
Think of banana split and licorice
And you'll feel fine

I knew a girl so gloomy
She'd never laugh or sing
She wouldn't listen to me
Now she's a mean old thing

So spread sunshine all over the place
Just put on a happy face
So, put on a happy face

CELEBRATE KINDNESS BY PAYING IT FORWARD, WITH RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS

I would like to direct you to an article found in the Deseret News today, by a blog follower, Rebecca Adams, of Illinois.  This article about a young girl who lost her family in a tragic automobile accident.  She was only 8 years old at the time, and suffered tremendous loss.  The story tells how she and her family were on their way to Idaho to a family reunion, when their pickup truck blew a tire, jumped the median and collided head on with a semi trailer.  Both her parents and sister were killed, but she was injured. A couple who saw the accident rushed to their aid and protected and comforted her until help arrived.   Joie's Aunt and uncle took her in to raise her.   After the accident lots and lots of people, even some they didn't know,  came to their aid with food and meals and comfort. 

Today, Joie is 14 and she had the idea last year about starting a Facebook page called Random Acts of Kindness:  Celebrating kindness, and encouraging strangers to participate.  On that Facebook page, it reads, "When tragedy hit, so did the acts of kindness, many fro strangers.  Each year, we give back, to remember."  1,500 people accepted the invitation, and did random acts of kindness.  Josie said that it makes her smile because they are doing these random acts in honor of her family, and that makes her HAPPY.  I hope that you will join in this years tribute and pay it forward, and be happy too!

I could go on but I want to give you the link to the Deseret news article, so you can go back and read the whole story.  http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865584824/Teen-honors-her-family-killed-in-crash-with-random-acts-of-kindness.html

With all this young lady suffered, she certainly has a right to be angry, sad, depressed, and still in grief, but instead, she says that she doesn't like living in the past and would rather be HAPPY and live life to the fullest.  Let me ask you.... could you do the same?  Have you done the same or are you still living in the past because of a hurt, tragedy or deep sadness that has happened to you I the past?  If you are still hurting, try what Joie did, and pay it forward.  Move on and don't let past events ruing your happiness for the rest of your life.  Go out and instead of looking inward, look outward and find someone that you can give service to, even if it is just starting with a smile.  I hope that you will join in this years tribute and pay it forward, and be HAPPY too!
