Tell me you remember that song? Wait. That might date me a little. Anyway, it’s by Elton John. And even though I haven’t heard it in years, it popped into my head earlier this week.
Seems like everywhere I look, people are struggling. Careers. Family. Relationships. Money. Sports. Choices. There are so many things to discourage us in life. And winter seems like the worst time for all of it. There's less sun, therefore, less of that all-important energizing vitamin D our bodies crave.
So I’ve decided it’s about time for a little pep talk (and by the time this posts, I’ll likely need to read it myself). Here it is, are you ready? Okay.
Stop worrying and start living.
That’s it. Things are going to go wrong sometimes. We all have down-cycles in every part of life. Finances, careers, relationships, health, self esteem, creativity—EVERYTHING. But things get better. There is always a way up if you keep your eyes, mind, and heart open. And up—yeah, it’s where we all want to be.
So stop worrying and start living.
In the words of Sheryl Crow, it's not having what you want, it's wanting what you've got.
Get on with the important things. Keep going. And while you’re at it, get some sunshine. It’ll help. I promise.
Have a great weekend!
