Wow, we made it! I haven’t been so glad to see Friday since…. Ummm, well, last week.😉
It’s been a bear of a week, hasn’t it? Just when you start to whine about your challenges, stop and think of those around you. I find it’s easier to let go of the frustration by empathizing, which means focusing on others and their experiences. This not only helps you shift your focus from you and your misery but also opens you up to supporting others. Isn’t that what community is all about?
Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day makes me think of how hard it is to be isolated. Even though it’s a melancholy song, I find myself humming it. It’s also a great crowd-shout song for road trips….You know I can see y’all motoring to this.😉
Need something a little more upbeat for your Friday? All American Rejects Move Along is an anthem to picking yourself up after a fall.
“When all you got to keep is strong,
Move along, move along, like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through….”
And I can’t help adding Traveling Wilbury’s End of the Line. It’s got me grooving while I clean up email this morning, imagining setting off on a great adventure.
I’ve got road trip music on my mind (can you tell?) – May y’all have great adventures this weekend!
