Have you noticed how everybody seems to be extraordinarily busy? Every day I see people swept up in the momentum of life relentlessly pushing themselves to satisfy all of their self-appointed tasks.
Getting caught up in the pursuit of busyness comes at a price and usually results in a loss of freedom.
We all have the same 24 hours (or 1440 minutes) in each day we live. How we choose to spend it is entirely up to us.
During 2013 I revisited my past many times in my blog posts but now choose to write only in the present. I’ve spent enough time thinking about past mistakes and will not waste another minute doing this. What’s done is done and I’m leaving it behind.
If you live with regrets, have a crappy job, are trapped in a loveless relationship, have lost your creative edge or lack motivation to do anything fun in your life, then snap out of it right now. This is your life and you should make the most of every day.
My challenge for you is to press play on Feelin’ Groovy and sing along as loud as possible (see lyrics below if you weren’t around in 1966).
I guarantee it will bring a smile to your face and almost two minutes of joy to your day. How you choose to spend the remaining 1438 minutes is up to you.
The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy)
Slow down, you move too fast
You got to make the morning last
Just kicking down the cobble stones
Looking for fun and feelin’ groovy
Ba da, Ba da, Ba da, Ba da…Feelin’ Groovy
What cha knowin’?
I’ve come to watch your flowers growin’
Ain’t cha got no rhymes for me?
I’ve got no deeds to do
No promises to keep
I’m dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
Let the morning time drop all it’s petals on me
Life, I love you
All is groovy
