My Weekend World Happiness Dance

You know, I always think it’s nice to start a New Year off with a palate cleanser. And, it never hurts to have a little reminder that despite all of life’s stressors and annoyances, we should take the time for joy wherever we find it. So with that I give you 34-year-old British “Got to Dance” game show contestant Happiness. Yes, her name is Happiness. No, she can’t really dance. No, that doesn’t even matter. Something about this clip reminded me of that saying, “Dance like no one is watching.” What Happiness lacks in training or technique she makes up for in energy and exuberance. There is a simple, unmistakable glee in what she is doing. Some may mock it, but prefer to just smile and applaud. Get down with your bad self, Happiness. Thanks for making my day a little happier. Happy 2011, all.

That made me really, absurdly... happy. I think my next solo dance party I will dance like this... or not. But, still, it might be fun.
