While watching a live stream of TEDxHarlem, a young speaker named Khadim Diop said “Happiness is a disease, but not deadly.” It was a simple yet profound way of describing the ability to set the tone for positivity, productivity and plain ol’ fun in your daily life. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. TED which stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design is a nonprofit organization known for TEDTalks; a suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations and performances on a wide range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration and wonder as well as provoke conversations. This 14-year old speaker imparted his wisdom with the global masses. I thought to myself, he’s got it and I hope everyone else catches this ‘happiness’ bug!
