So anyway, it's just a couple of phrases from the song "Three Little Birds" by Bob Marley running through my head over and over until I wake up. "Don't worry about a thing…every little thing's gonna be alright." This message is vital to understand even without my brain trying to hit the message home while I sleep.
Worrying isn't the same as pondering with a purpose to help yourself or others. And worrying does nothing to make life better. When you stop to think about it, worrying is plain old self-destruction. I'm not typically a big Bob Marley fan, but the smooth groove of this song has always made me smile. And now there's even more reason to love it.
Looking ahead, these thirty-one days of writing slices of this treasured life of mine should be filled with watching for how everything is going to be alright. I want to show myself some compassion and try to remember to focus my perspective in this direction.
I look forward to your comments and slices too. Don't forget to put your slice of life links in the comments or just write a comment to share! This month is about connecting and sharing!
