Some of the best lessons in life have been put to music. I thought is would be fun to take some time to consider the life lessons offered in lyrics. If the lesson is not clear, explain it, if it is clear, just give us the lyrics and artist.
The Rolling Stones
You Can't Always Get What You Want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes well you just might find
You get what you need
How often do we spend time wishing for the things we want in life and not spend time being thankful for the being provided with the things we really need? If you have a roof over your head, food in your refrigerator, and can read this, you are among the wealthiest people on earth.
We Are the Champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions - of the world
I got this life lesson from Bonnie L recently. This is in regards to personal responsibility – how when things get bad and we get depressed we can let our personal responsibilities slip. So even though we are far from losers, we sure can act like them by not keeping up with out responsibilities! So, when you are feeling down and start seeing your responsibilities slip – it is time to blast Queen and sing: "No time for losers Cause we are the champions – of the world!"
You better let somebody love you
before it's too late
How often is it ourselves that keeps people and especially one certain person from loving us? What walls do we put up? How can people love us if we don't let them in? This is one of life's most powerful lessons!
Okay – now it is your turn! What "Life Lessons" do you hear in the lyrics of songs?
