In 1988 when this song was popular, I was going through a very rough time emotionally. This song became my motto. I was so obsessed that I bought a big smiley-face t-shirt with the song title and earrings to match. Whenever I was feeling lonely and blue I would play this song (very loudly) on my stereo and sing and dance around in my apartment. Pretty soon I would start to feel better, although I'm sure my neighbor's probably thought I was crazy.
I no longer have the shirt or earrings, I guess I got rid of them when things started getting better in my life. A couple of years ago I found a cute Be Happy button, and I bought it without knowing what I was going to do with it. Today I watched Cool 2 Craft's live show and Candace made a lovely bracelet from her grandmother's vintage buttons. I have a lot of vintage buttons, but none of them would work for what I wanted to make, so I pulled out my "bright" button jar and came across my Be Happy button. My button has found a home at last and I again have something to wear if I ever feel the need to dance around the house again...lol.
Here's my new "Be Happy, Don't Worry" Bracelet
