  • A wake up call

    This song As easy as our blessings helped me clear my head.

    Lately I've been having more nights that I can't sleep
    Storms of life keep blowing in sometimes it gets so heavy
    It drives me to my knees and it's coming down again
    Then a voice inside reminds me of the roof over my head
    And my wife and kids are tucked away warmly in their beds

    {Chorus}
    Up in heaven sometimes I wonder if God sits there and listens
    To all his children thinking it'd be nice if we'd forget our troubles as easy as our blessings

    Suddenly I don't feel like counting what I need
    So I start counting what I have when times are at their toughest
    My wife still stands by me and my children make me laugh
    Then I crawl back in bed and start to think as I lay there
    Could it be that he's already heard and answered all my prayers
    Be yourself!!!

    Beautiful. Counting blessings more than burdens is the only answer to survival in the world, as far as I can see. Even if it doesn't come naturally you can practice and it becomes second nature. Somewhere I went from a pessimist to a blessings counter and it helps.

                    You're absolutely right Geno. We have to focus on what we have and what we are vs what we want and wish to be.

                    Stay strong brother!

                            Desiderata

                            Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
                            and remember what peace there may be in silence.
                            As far as possible without surrender
                            be on good terms with all persons.
                            Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
                            and listen to others,
                            even the dull and the ignorant;
                            they too have their story.

                            Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
                            they are vexations to the spirit.
                            If you compare yourself with others,
                            you may become vain and bitter;
                            for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
                            Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.


                            Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
                            it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
                            Exercise caution in your business affairs;
                            for the world is full of trickery.
                            But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
                            many persons strive for high ideals;
                            and everywhere life is full of heroism.


                            Be yourself.
                            Especially, do not feign affection.
                            Neither be cynical about love;
                            for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
                            it is as perennial as the grass.


                            Take kindly the counsel of the years,
                            gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
                            Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
                            But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
                            Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
                            Beyond a wholesome discipline,
                            be gentle with yourself.


                            You are a child of the universe,
                            no less than the trees and the stars;
                            you have a right to be here.
                            And whether or not it is clear to you,
                            no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.


                            Therefore be at peace with God,
                            whatever you conceive Him to be,
                            and whatever your labors and aspirations,
                            in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.


                            With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
                            it is still a beautiful world.
                            Be cheerful.
                            Strive to be happy.
