We Will Get By

Waahhhhooooooo, it’s Friday!

I took most of January to just be.

That’s it. Just be… Be in the moment, be in the here and now.

I had no plans and did no planning.

I pretended I was a cloud and generally went where the wind took me. It was immensely freeing to stay in the moment, but this departure from daily lists and tasks won’t last forever so I’m enjoying it while I can.

It’s Friday and we can all use a recharge as we wrap up the week. Here are a few songs that inspired my thinking, my floating, drifting with the wind, my appreciation of the freedom that comes with a career transition.

The Glee cast’s cover of Defying Gravity from Wicked Retiring is a lot like closing your eyes and leaping.

Disturbed’s cover of Sounds of Silence  Silence is what happens when you’re not on conference calls every hour!

Jack Johnson’s From the Clouds  Happy music with great imagery.

Michael Franti & Spearhead’s Sound of Sunshine  The video is shot on a beach, one of my happy places.

Finally, The Grateful Dead’s Touch of Grey  A happy melody with the best lyrics ever, especially if you’re feeling stressed. We will get by……one of my favorite ear worms.

May you do more than get by, may you find joy today!
