How you all doing? I hope you are well…
It’s hard at times isn’t it? We should be used to it by now shouldn’t we? But we’re not. We battle on. We’re positive. We do our best to think about others. We start the day with a spring in our step. We run, we cycle, we get things done but often it fades doesn’t it…
I often label the fact that I have had a bad day by a few bad thoughts or moments in a otherwise ok day. Nighttime is often when the negative thoughts creep in. Does that happen to you too?
I was listening to radio 2 last week. They had a musical weekend. I loved it. I remember I was driving to see my boys. I often get a bit anxious going to the old home but a song from Bugsy Malone came on… ‘we could have been anything we…”, you know the one don’t you…and it changed my mood instantly. Isn’t that weird…how a song, a 2 minute moment, can alter my state of mind….
Anyway back to musicals week… if you didn’t know the best musical song voted for by the public was from Les Misérables but not the song expected. I dreamed a dream was the winner…
Listen to it, go on. It’s the most beautiful song about life before… then it turns dark… ‘And the tigers came at night, with words as soft as thunder, as they tear your hope apart..’
Hope and Dreams
It made me think…have we all changed a bit. Do we believe in hope more? I do. Do we dream more? I think we do but then that fog comes over and blurs it out doesn’t it…
“what nonsense”, “come on pull yourself together, dreams don’t come true”, “stop being irrational, grow up”
No, we must believe in hope. We must find time to dream, even if it’s just a daydream.
We all miss out friends and yes life can get a bit boring can’t it, but we have a lot to be grateful for. Normal is ok. Normal is ok. That’s not a typo I’m just reinforcing Normal is ok. Got it.
We will get through this.
