Day 18 : The Happiness Challenge

November 18, 2016

“And when you get a choice, to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance’ : Lee Ann Womack

I love this song so much, I sang it for  people last year during the challenge and I felt good doing it (I could sing  again for anyone who asks for it). It is such a meaningful and deep song. Lee was basically telling us to not lose hope and that we should always make ourselves happy regardless of what obstacles may come our way,telling  us to live and enjoy the moment , so we won’t look back later and wonder where all our years have gone. In fact, Let  me copy out the lyrics for everyone.

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
GOD forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance….I hope you dance.

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin’ might mean takin’ chances but they’re worth takin’,
Lovin’ might be a mistake but it’s worth makin’,
Don’t let some hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin’ out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance….I hope you dance.
I hope you dance….I hope you dance.
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along,
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone.)

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

Dance….I hope you dance.
I hope you dance….I hope you dance.
I hope you dance….I hope you dance..
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along
Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone)

Can you guys see what I am seeing? Can you see the lyrics that make up that song? She touched everything, I think. Don’t let anyone or anything bring you down, Don’t let a failed endeavor make you feel like you should quit, Don’t let a heartbreak make you stop believing in love, don’t let a betrayal stop you from having friends, Don’t stop being the good person you are, Just don’t.  Enjoy life as it comes, go for what you want, aspire to learn more, seek knowledge, Don’t let the idea of what happens tomorrow stop you from actually living today, Tomorrow will come either ways and you won’t have Yesterday back.

Today is advice day, I am using the lyrics of this song to advise myself and my readers, Please LIVE! Visit a location you’ve always dreamed of if you can afford it, Eat your favorite meal when you feel like it, Pamper yourself from time to time, share love, share happiness, Be peaceful!. Let happiness be seen in you from afar, be the source of people’s Joy,.when you stumble, get on your feet and move again, You will be fine!  Never forget to give faith a fighting chance, show your loved ones that you care, don’t bottle up feelings, Be there for your friends, Appreciate your parents, Smile at a stranger, Pass compliments, Cry when you are overwhelmed, It is okay to cry, you aren’t a stone. Don’t over pressurize yourself, run your own race, don’t judge your progress with how fast or slow the other person is going, just stay true to yourself and be happy for others. Don’t forget what I said earlier, Live!.

And oh, Never forget to be your own greatest Cheerleader!

I’ll be back. BOS

    I read this to mean “leave all that work that’s stressing you and sleep!” …and that’s exactly what I’m about to do

    The lyrical are deep!
    Just run your own race and wish others well. Measuring your success against other people’s own will only make you bitter.

    Thinks for the inspiration ma’am.

    Creating memories makes me happy. Hanging out with friends, diner dates with hubby and everything memorable. So I try to create as many lovely moments as possible.
    Travelling as often as I can afford it too.
