Life's Lessons

I have another music post for you.
Not because I want to share music, but because music can teach us so many lessons about life.
The following are a few of my favorite songs with meaningful messages

1.  I Can't Make You Love Me
AKA you can't force things on people and don't expect people to feel the same way as you.

2. You Can't Always Get What You Want
(but you get what you need)
AKA appreciate what you have people!

3. Life Goes On
(ob-la-di, ob-la-da)
AKA let things go, and move on, 'nuff said

4. Things Are What You Make Of Them
AKA Perception is everything!

What songs help you to stop, focus, and regroup when things are a mess?

And of course, some Oh, How Pinteresting Inspiration as well

Also, don't be wasteful:
Happy Wednesday! We're halfway to that weekend!
All the more reason to BE HAPPY!

I am not usually a classical music type of person, but when I am stressing it helps so much to turn on classical music or quiet piano music.

Anne Frank's quote makes me tear up. You're so right, if she could still see the beauty, we can ALWAYS see beauty, light, and hope in each new day. Some of my favorite songs that are empowering: If I ruled the World, Lauren Hill .... I hope you Dance, Leanne Womack.... This Kiss, Faith Hill .... Dreams, The Cranberries. To name a few!! xo
