When life comes at you hard and heavy, ease – on – down!
When there’s just too much to carry on, ease – on – down!
When burden’s seem to overflow and heart is weary too
Stop right now, retabulate – there’s something you can do:
Ease on down!
Reset your pace, remove the frown.
Be carefree, be as a clown.
Rethink, redo, recapture,
the simple joys of life!
Don’t just be a survivor
Your life full up with strife.
move a little slower, simplify your tasks
Live one day at a time, it’s not too much to ask!
And then most importantly
please … ease on down!
Life is a never ending experience. Do take the time to enjoy.
If there are no flowers to stop and smell … then go find some, now!
Today! Do it!
Have a great weekend and Happy Mother’s Day too!
with much affection,
This musical video “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life!” has a few words in it that can be considered offensive (I am being serious here). The song is from Monty Python’s movie The Life of Brian (1979) but the point is still well made. We take ourselves and our lives (and everyone else’s) far too seriously, too often.
The good news is … (wait, there’s good news?) … as I was saying, the good news is there is so much news, events, activities, things happening that everyone seems to have an opinion about, and so on, that the word “boring” (unless your referring to a drill) isn’t in most people’s vocabulary. At least not too much.
This is official “Lighten up Week” (well I don’t know that it’s actually official) but for goodness sake (your own sake – for starters!) look on the bright side of things. It is waaaaay to easy to look on the dark side (Imagine Darth Vader breathing here!) of things.
Take a break this week from the “Much ado” aspect of living. Be thankful and grateful for what you do have right this second. Enjoy those around you, make their day and yours a little bit better.
Have a great week,
