Day Three: Commit to a Writing Practice – Today’s Prompt: Write about the three most important songs in your life — what do they mean to you?

by Live Better, Be Better.......my journey to happiness

The Three Songs that came to my mind on reading the email were:

Jim Reeves – May The Good Lord Bless And Keep You – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PD9KLA4qz3A

Abba – I Have A Dream Lyrics – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_HupoJ2_oc

Gloria Gaynor – I Will Survive – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNDl41HfvxI

I loved the first song, because as a child, my dad always sang it to me when he put me to sleep and if i remember correctly, it was the first song i learnt to sing.  This song brings so many memories, to my mind, it just soothes me as i read the lyrics.  At our home we also sang this song on someone’s birthday as a blessing, or if someone was just visiting us from far away, we kids would line up and sing this song.

I love the second song because this song gives me hope, my life has had some rough times and when i think of this song, it lifts me up.  the constant reference to knowing that no matter what you are going thru’ in your life, each thing has something good in it for you and when the time is right, good things will happen.  So we can keep dreaming of better days, better things to come, but also truly treasure each of the present moments because it is through these moments, that we will arrive at our destination.

I love the third song, because it is a song that gives me strength and courage and reminds me that all i need is me, and when i am hurt and when i am down, i have to take time to look inside and be strong again, i need not let anyone hurt me  but have the courage to love myself and be the person i am truly meant to be.

Its really funny how the universe provides insight when you need it and today i got this post on face book.  Hope you helps you take the next steps, just as it did for me.

Quit living a boring, predictable life just to keep others happy.  You were meant to do great things, not just to sacrifice yourself.  Shake off the guilt, trash the self-pity, set your own goals and start chasing them RIGHT NOW!
