At my place of work, November is crazy, December is nuts. That’s what happens when you work for a company that’s in the business of Christmas.
There’s worry, stress and all kinds of things that come up, that stretch, and even break some people in this business.
That’s why today, my dear 12 readers, I think, is a good day for John Mayer’s Clarity.
The lyrics are laid back, and gives you the few minutes that we sometimes forget to take when we’re all running around trying to get things done. If you’re feeling anxious, and crazy, and don’t really know what’s happening around you, take the time to step back, have a few minutes to yourself, and maybe have it on the background.
But this morning
There’s a calm I can’t explain
The rock candy’s melted, only diamonds now remain, oh
So go be who you are and do what makes you happy (as long as this doesn’t directly cause pain to someone else), because your world has an audience that you cannot control, and there will always be critics who think they’ve read you like a book.
The opinion that matters is your own.
Love yourself, and others will love you for who you are.
Be a ripe, juicy peach, shiny and sweet, and take all the joy out of being the best you can. (And try not to hurt others along the way)
Today is a little more melancholy than usual, and I don’t blame it on the weather.
Maybe we all need a little bit of hope and happiness in the midst of the insanity that is going on.
That’s why I think today is a good day for Imaginary Future’s April.
With these lyrics
Take your card
Lay it down on the table
It’s a heart, it’s a way back to me
On your own, suddenly you are able
But it’s harder to go once you’re free
It’s not quite optimistic, but it’s a choice. Have a good weekend 11 readers. I hope you have somewhere you feel free.
