I am grateful for my husband. I am grateful for my children. I am grateful for my family. I am grateful for my friends. My job. My cats. The internet. Wifi. Gas in my car. My shoes and the shirt on my back.
Life is hard and can be exhausting and everybody needs something to change their focus when they are feeling off centre.
I always aim to do my best but I don’t always succeed. When I need a mood changer, I use music. My current anthem that I use for inspiration and a song by the California rockers, Train.Â The song is the title track from their 2006 album, For Me, It’s You. The message of
the song is about paying it forward and sharing what you have.
Give it if you’ve got it
Get it if you don’t
I love the message of this song and it reminds me to focus on what’s important.
My favourite lyric is
Give it to somebody that don’t have a thing
Ain’t got soft shoes to dance or a love song to sing – no
Get yourself on the right track
Let somebody ride your back for a while
LET SOMEBODY RIDE YOUR BACK FOR A WHILE.
That resonates so strongly with me. How many people have carried me to be where I am today? I could never thank them enough to the same measure that they helped me. I hope that I have had a similar impact on the people that are in my life.
I’ve seen Train perform live many times in Houston and they are an amazing live band. If you get the opportunity to see them, do it.
If you haven’t ever seen them live, here’s the next best thing. Enjoy, my friends!
