For some of us, the holiday season is a joyous time of celebration of family and loved ones. For others, it can be a deeply challenging and lonely times. I definitely experienced both of these. Sometimes music can really help get through hard times, when it feels like we live in a “Mad World.”
This song was written by Tears For Fears (Roland Orzabal), originally out in 1982. I hope you like this song, and let yourself feel it all. Don’t get down on yourself for feeling down. Remember, Setherino loves you.
Here we are, another start to another year. I have a good feeling about this one. It’s 2018, and 18 is a very special and lucky number. In Judaism, the number 18 means “chai” which means “life.” That’s where the phrase “l’chaim” comes from when you hear people make a toast, it means “to life.”
I wish you much strength throughout this chapter. “What’s it all about?” you might ask. Well, here’s my thought on the matter. Consciously, put your time and energy into what you really believe in your heart to be important. If you can look back on a lifetime or a year or even a minute feeling truly in harmony with how you spent your time and energy, I believe you will be a happier and healthier person. Give it a try. Everyone in your life will thank you for it.
There’s so much in this world that we can’t control. Rather than focus our attention on what’s out of our hands, focus on what you can do in your own world and community and family. You are the most powerful person in your world.
Let this be a year of happiness, peace, passion, play, music, creativity, good health, person growth, connections, nature, laughter, and everything else that fills your heart and soul.
