No Worries

beach

With a title like that one might think this could be a blog about a sunny beach vacation with some Jimmy Buffet playing in the background and a tropical drink in one’s hand. Nope. This is a blog about a very serious topic… the holidays.

Funny how that word can mean different things to different people. For me, it seems like every year they come around faster than I expect. Which in turn causes some people to move into overdrive mode trying to get every little thing done to make sure that the holidays are “perfect”.

Except there is no such thing as “perfect”, so now what? For some people without family the holidays are something they want to avoid altogether. For people with large extended families the holidays start practically right after Veterans Day and go nonstop until after New Year. Seems like every year people put their Christmas tree up earlier and earlier. I know people who hardly get any sleep because they are so busy that they run themselves ragged practically making themselves sick trying to do and be everything. So where is the happy medium?

I say the happy medium is you. We are all lights. We all have the ability to either be people lifter’s or drags. Opportunities arise each and every day to either build people up or to tear them down. So in this time of year when there are so many extremes all around bombarding us at every turn, from stores to places of employment, we get to choose what we will be in the situations we are faced with.

Every day is a gift whether one has a large extended family with boatloads of holiday activities going on, or for the person living alone without any family. It’s a simple choice. It’s easy to get wrapped up in making sure everything you want to accomplish get’s done and things get marked off the “to do” list. However, I think it’s important in the midst of the daily “grind” to be flexible and if everything gets done that’s great. On the other hand if every single little thing on that list does not get checked off, not to beat yourself up over it. At the same time, not to be so wrapped up into our own “to do’s” that we miss those opportunities where we can be lifters.

My motto is if I see something I “do something”. Meaning if I encounter a situation where someone needs something, and I am able to be that something, then I do it. This motto was actually the inspiration for my latest single released to iTunes titled “Don’t Walk Away.” (click here to listen at iTunes) Here’s a section of the lyrics:

ARE YOU BUILDING UP OR TEARING DOWN
HEARTS ARE HURTING CAN YOU HEAR THE SOUND
HE SAID WHEN YOU DID IT TO THE LEAST OF THESE
YOU DID IT TO ME

DON’T WALK AWAY, DON’T WALK AWAY
SOMEBODY NEEDS YOU NOW
DON’T WALK AWAY, DON’T WALK AWAY
YOU MIGHT BE THE ANSWER HOW

You get the idea… basically my motto is, if a situation arises and you can do or be that something for someone, I say like the Nike saying goes… “just do it”. Which in reading this it might seem like I’m saying to do two opposite things. On the one hand I say don’t kill yourself trying to do everything, and then on the other hand I’m saying to do something. Actually it all comes back down to that happy medium again. That’s where the no worries mentality comes in.

Let everything roll off like water off of a ducks back. Keeping in mind that every day is a blessing, to count every blessing and when we have the chance, to “be” a blessing to those we encounter. People, animals, whatever the case may be. Not to be so busy that we miss opportunities to be the answer how. If we run into a situation that we can change, don’t assume someone else will do it. Just imagine… what a wonderful world it would be.

May your holidays be filled with many many blessings.

Music, Love & Blessings ~
