When I was little I used to pretend that I was adopted. I convinced myself and my friends that I was not really a Graw.
I started doing this after I watched the children’s movie “Annie”. I loved the dramatic story. I wanted to be just like her. I admired the way she sang her way through just about any problem.
And the best part about the movie is that her entire life is made better in an hour and half! I soon grew up and realized that life just does NOT work out like that. Most problems in life last days, weeks and sometimes even years.
A few weeks ago I was not having the best of days. It was just “one of those days”. Nothing seemed to be going right in my life. I am normally a very happy positive person, but on this day in particular I was not feeling like myself. And that’s when I thought of one of my favorite childhood songs!
It’s called tomorrow. My favorite line in particular is,“The sun WILL come out tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow there will be sun.” I started singing that song in my car at the top of my lungs. I continued to sing it at all of the stop lights along the way home. I didn’t care who was watching.
I slowly started feeling better. None of my problems were fixed, but I did realize that like the song said the sun would come out tomorrow and everything really would work out. I figured out that the best thing to do when going through a rough time is to simply KEEP GOING.
So, the next time you are feeling blue, think of one of your favorite childhood songs and play it over and over. And don’t be afraid to sing along. Trust me on this one-it helps!
What do you do when you are having a rough time? Do you have a song that helps boost your mood?
