Contemplating the gray night, the cold wet air, and my (ever) shrinking computer chair....
When all of the sudden a song came on the radio.....
And I heard....
"I woke last night to the sound of thunder!....
How far off I sat and wondered....."
Hello, Bob Segar!
Without thinking my shoulders start bobbin' to the beat......
My heart beats a little faster and the song goes on....
"Started humming a song from 1962
Aint it funny how the night moves...."
Now my bum is starting to wiggle.... while Bob sings....
"When you just dont seem to have much to loose...
Strange how the night moves...."
Whoa..... Night moves!!.....
And by the end of the song I am smiling and singing.... the gloom of the foggy night forgotten...
Now, I think that as I actually made it a whole week (almost) without posting any youtube, I should be allowed to put up the music video of the song that made my night!?! Don't you?
To share it all with you and hope that, somewhere,out there in the great wide world, all my blogger friends might get to smile and dance a little too!
So... here it is! Bob Segar's 'Night Moves'.... accompanied by a handful of those cliche little inspirational expressions I received in an e-mail today....
** Some days you're the pigeon,
and some days you're the statue. **
A lecturer when explaining
stress management to an audience,
raised a glass of water and asked
"How heavy is this glass of water?"
Answers called out ranged
from 20g to 500g.
The lecturer replied,
"The absolute weight doesn't matter.
It depends on how long you try to hold it.
If I hold it for a minute,
that's not a problem.
If I hold it for an hour,
I'll have an ache in my right arm.
If I hold it for a day,
you'll have to call an ambulance.
In each case, it's the same weight,
but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes."
"And that's the way it is
with stress management.
If we carry our burdens
all the time, sooner or later,
as the burden becomes increasingly heavy,
we won't be able to carry on. "
"As with the glass of water,
you have to put it down for a while
and rest before holding it again.
When we're refreshed,
we can carry on with the burden."
"So, before you return home tonight,
put the burden of work down.
Don't carry it home.
You can pick it up tomorrow.
Whatever burdens you're carrying now,
let them down for a moment if you can."
* Always keep your words soft and sweet,
just in case you have to eat them.
* Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be
recalled by their maker.
* If you can't be kind,
at least have the decency to be vague.
* Since it's the early worm
that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late.
* It's the second mouse that gets the cheese.
* When every thing's coming your way,
you're in the wrong lane.
