It has been so long since I felt so happy! Today I woke up feeling exceptionally exhilarated, but I’m not sure why, and anyway I can’t say it yet. My mood was extra boosted by a dose of feel good music from my brother’s mp3 player, and unsurprisingly “I’ve got a feeling” from Black Eyed Peas really did the trick today.
Maybe it was because of a really good chat with my brother Jon last night. It was a laughter-filled one, and absolutely heartfelt. I’m so glad I met him
And I still feel good now. It’s totally infectious, like there was a spring in my steps as I was on my way to work today, even the smell of onions just before I reached the office didn’t bother me – for once. I think people could sense my joy, a few even looked in my way, maybe quizzically, maybe enviously, I don’t know. Elaine also asked why I’m so happy today!
But seriously no matter how tired you are, how lazy you feel and how moody, an optimistic outlook really changes everything. Today I experienced the ultimate. When you’re happy even work doesn’t feel like work, and guess what, you become more productive at work, and everyone around you will feel the joy. It’s like smiling while typing an sms and the recipient somehow knows that YOU ARE SMILING. Amazing, isn’t it?
Well, I have a proposal (iLead’s business case) due tomorrow night and I’m only halfway through. Gotta step on it tonight, but before I end this post, here’s another beautiful song I heard from Huiwen’s playlist today. Enjoy
Savage Garden – Santa Monica

In Santa Monica, in the winter time, The lazy streets so undemanding I walk into the crowd In Santa, Monica, you get your coffee from The coolest places on the promenade Where the people dress just so Beauty so unavoidable, everywhere you turn It's there I sit and wonder what am I doing here? But on the telephone line I am anyone I am anything I want to be I can be a super model or Norman Mailer And you wouldn't know the difference Or would you? In santa Monica, all the people got modern names Like Jake or Mandy And modern bodies too In Santa Monica, on the boulevard, You'll have to dodge those in-line skaters or they'll knock you down I never felt so lonely, Never felt so out of place I never wanted something more than this But on the telephone line I am anyone I am anything I want to be I can be a supermodel or Norman Mailer And you wouldn't know the difference On the telephone line, I am any height I am any age I want to be I can be a caped crusader, or a space invader And you wouldn't know the difference Or would you?
