Despite writing about the power and importance of optimism, I’ve noticed certain people on this blog seem abit down …. sooooooooooo to help ‘cheer them up’ abit, I thought I’d show a video of a fat bloke who laughs alot.

No, it’s not Andy and it’s not even me [who is much more svelte thanks to my food delivery program] …  it’s this guy, who I wrote my 2nd ever post about.

If he doesn’t make you smile, then all hope is lost – either that or you really did drink too much last night or are fed up of the weather. Ha!

That’s just strange – did make me laugh though – also got me some strange looks from my colleagues.

I just got an email on positivity from my mum, she is home in Aus watching Oprah and says (I don’t know who she is talking about, but one of Oprah’s guests):

… it’s quite an amazing philosophy they practice, one mantra is.. energy flows where thought goes… so if we dwell on bad feelings or negative thoughts then that’s where our energy goes and creates more bad feelings and negative thoughts, thus a big cycle of unhappiness for us.

I thought I was happy and positive, but it sounds like she is giving me a hint.

Comment by Jade

that’s nuts.

Comment by Marcus

Jade you are a happy and optimistic person – hell, you don’t even like to swear – so tell your Mum to back off or she has us lot to answer to, 🙂

I should point out I FUCKING HATE OPRAH … and so feel compelled to disagree with whatever she/her guest is saying, ha.

Besides, sometimes I think HATE is one of the most liberating emotions in the World.

Lets face it, we live in very ‘PC times’ [bar inside the cynic office] so much of the time we surpress our feelings and emotions.

When you actually embrace that hate – you can feel a rush of euphoria which ultimately lets you feel optimistic and positive about the future because [1] you’ve let out what has been held in for so long and [2] more often than not, you find others also share your view so you no longer feel alone and isolated.

But that might just be me. Ahem.

See … I’ve spouted off about Oprah and already I feel happier about life.

Can hate be good?

It did make me smile. I liked the crazy 90’s dance moves he pulled out.

And unhappy? moi? Naaaah.. enraged at times, yes.

Comment by Will

Why isn’t my comment being posted?? Now I’m pissed off.

Comment by Jade

So it posts that …

Comment by Jade

i’m a little glum today. that crazy happy man made me giggle, but also very grateful that i’m not in a room full of people like him – then i would definitely feel hate. love this blog too.

Comment by lauren

i had the same trouble the other day jade… rob – your wordpress is getting funky again…

Comment by lauren

I tried to say something like this before:

You know, I have always thought of hate as a wasted emotion and a negative use of energy. But, maybe you have a point. Hate is a huge motivator to make positive changes in your life. *u#ck 🙂 Maybe you have something there. ha ha.

On the other hand, spending time dwelling on hating something or someone is time that could be spent on happier pursuits. Maybe the secret is to embrace the hate, revel in it, make changes and then move on and let go of it.

I just couldn’t swear – tried but failed, maybe I need more anger. I’ll go tell my mum to back off.

Cant argue with the Honda ads…

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Lauren, I’m sorry you are feeling glum. I think it would be nightmareish to be in a room full of people like that – there is something creepy about his laugh.

Comment by Jade

I can argue with anything or anyone.

Comment by Marcus

Comment by lauren

Fuck you Lauren :). Are you happy now?? You do know I’m joking don’t you.
Peace and love

Comment by Jade

Jade sort-of swore … how I wish her and Lauren had got together and then all this anticipation of foul mouthed behaviour would be over. Night all …

PS: Jade – your deleted comments will be up in a second, my WordPress is having a ‘queenie’, sorry.

Comment by Rob

Actually Jade – forget about your deleted comments coming back ‘on’ – I’ve just seen they are the same as the comment you finally managed to post … and may I congratulate you on your ability to write the same thing over and over again without any changes. Genius.

Comment by Robert

Sometimes it’s nice to get to these posts late. It’s too late to join in but it’s very funny.
By the way,I’m having a shocking day, this cheered me up. Thanks Rob

Comment by NP

Whoever or whatever is giving NP a crappy day … watch out because he’s our mate and today is officially NO SHIT WEDNESDAY so you are risking a right beating if you carry on in this way. God I need to go to bed, I’m talking even more shit than usual.

Comment by Rob

NP – give those fuckers a piece of your mind.

Comment by Will

Brilliant. Very funny.

Comment by Charles Frith

Thank you for locking in AT LEAST 2 weeks of nightmares with that video, Rob.

The angle change at 19secs left haunts me.
