A secret to happiness
I hadn’t done any recording for a long time. I had been keeping all of these songs bottled up inside of me. I wanted to do something with them but I was always too busy, and kept putting it off till tomorrow, and then the day after, and then the year after, until finally I realized, enough! Just do it now because life is short and very precious.
You know how we all get so caught up in our lives, rushing from one place to the next without taking any time to stop and realize what a miracle it is to even be alive and have the privilege of being here on earth………….
Sometimes when I feel overwhelmed by this hectic, no time to accomplish everything on the list, always late for the next event, too many interruptions kind of life, I know it’s time to stop whatever I’m doing and just breathe……. Swallow a deep, wonderful breath, and take some time to see the world differently. To see that in spite of my humble existence the world keeps turning. To see that, good or bad, this is a pretty amazing place we live in and we’re all part of it and that’s truly our blessing………..
And then all of a sudden, the air feels fresher, the grass looks greener, the chirping of birds, the whisper of the wind, and even the rumble of passing traffic all seem like some comforting voice from heaven. And I want to live, I want to write, I want to sing, I want to share.
This could be the secret to happiness…..
Love your life, love your family, love your neighbor, love the world!
