I am a bit late in making this post, and I was almost going to title it Happy New Year, and then I thought to myself, I really should be wishing people a peaceful new year. In my personal experience peace is far more wonderful than happiness. Happiness is fleeting, it comes and goes, but peace is a much richer deeper experience and it can be more lasting.
The start of a new year for most comes with the idea of becoming something, thinner, richer, smarter, more successful. It is a concept which I think needs to be dropped, rather than trying to “BECOME” something, why not just “BE” your authentic self.
The following song “FLOAT ON” by Modest Mouse is a song which must have been released around 2009, but I only heard it last year and it has become my official anthem song for 2016. In life from a young age, we are like fish constantly trying to swim upstream and against the tide, and the inevitable result is that we eventually weaken and the unrelenting tide eventually pushes us back. Don’t swim, let go and float. Try it, even if its for a few minutes, for an hour or more, just let go and float on with the natural flow of life.
I have a google music subscription and listen to the song on my headphones, and wow, the lyrics and beat is so powerful and you really become immersed in the message of the song. “Alright, don’t worry even if things end up a bit too heavy, we’ll all float on alright”
Finally I would like to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to sign up to the group, I truly appreciate it.
