This song somehow made its way into my brain today and I haven't been able to kick it. It's several years out of fashion so I didn't hear it on the radio on my way to work. It's funny how sometimes you just get what you need.
This is something I remind my clients about- that everything good and bad is completely temporary. The good moods, extra cash, free and easy friendships- they all shift and change. It doesn't meant they go away or go bad, but they change. It's one of the reasons I believe people hesitate for going for what they want in life- this idea that it can't actually work out, or won't last. I totally get that feeling- it's scary as hell. But because I'm on an ever-present mission to keep lookout for the good things in my life, I've noticed their patterns and how they work. The wonderful things change and evolve, and yes, at times move away. If you view that as bad news- that "nothing gold can stay" the good news is that nothing bad can either.
Thanks for the universe for sending me this little reminder today!
I absolutely adore Kacey Musgraves in general, but when this song popped up on my iPhone the other day on a long drive it really gave me the life I needed to finally get home. As I danced and sang along in the car I thought about all the people I know who need to hear this message, including myself. The song is fun and non-threatening while delivering a message we all learn as small children but often forget.
Whether it's your kids with behavioral problems, the in-laws who insult your weight, the circular fights with your spouse, the dead end job you hate, the depression, anxiety, or substance abuse issues- we all have stuff going on. Gossip worthy stuff. I think many people talk about and focus on other's peoples stuff as a means of avoiding their own. We could all benefit from remembering this when we're sitting on our high horse talking about other peoples troubles. Own what you got going on in your own life, we all have quite enough in just that to keep us plenty busy.
After yesterday's post where I mentioned Adele I decided I'd take a gander to see what the first thing that popped up on YouTube for her was. Umm it was only a brand new video released this week....no big deal. What are the odds? I love it when that happens.
This blog is less about my writing, and more about sharing inspiration. I'll post pictures, articles, and videos that I find interesting, moving, or just funny (funny being a loose term here as my humor is generally of the nerdy psychoanalytic variety).
