I said you wanna be startin’ somethin’
You got to be startin’ somethin’
I said you wanna be startin’ somethin’
You got to be startin’ somethin’
…..ooh, ooh, ooh, yeah, yeah…

You GOT to be startin’ somethin’. Sing it like Michael Jackson sang it (obviously I don’t remember all the words!) Half the year is over today, so really you got to be starting something.

Tonight is the night before my birthday, and all through the blog not a creature was stirring . . . not even a whale (well, since it’s summer I figured I should pick a creature that swims).

But anyway, it’s June 30th, so let’s talk about whether YOU got to be starting something. Are you where you thought you’d be with all your New Year’s resolutions? If not, then you’ve got half a year left to make them happen.

So let’s all think about startin’ somethin’ . . . ya ya . . . Oh, wait, that’s actually the Secrets Of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood (a movie, not a song). Anyway, sing Michael’s song today and let’s move on to today’s blog topic — which happens to be about singing your life.

People are always asking me how I’m in such a good mood all of the time. I’m always in a good mood. I feel good from the second I wake up until the second I fall asleep.

How do I do it? I spend my entire day singing through life.

I’m not necessarily walking around singing a song all day long. To me, though, life is literally like a song. I’m basically singing all day long.

When I wake up, I’m always feeling really goofy. I’ll wake up with some ridiculous song in my head, like “Bicycle” by Queen. I’ll be making breakfast in the kitchen and in my head I’ll be singing the lyrics “Bicycle, bicycle… I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike…”

I don’t even know all the words, but by doing that I start laughing and cracking myself up. I begin to have a good time.

That is what life is all about. Life is all about having a good time. You should always be singing.

So really think about having different soundtracks going through your head all of the time. Perhaps you get a song stuck in your head that you hear while you’re driving. Sing that song to yourself.

Let yourself go! Most of us walk around like we have a stick so far up our ass. Now what kind of song do you think that would inspire?

Just let it go! Don’t be so serious. Sing the day away.

If you can sing your day away, people will want to be with you. It’s like you’re creating your own concert and the rest of the world is your giant mosh pit. All they will want to do is carry you around all day long.

Start singing!
