If you are a frequent visitor to our website and podcast feed, it's no secret that I love music and regularly find some sort of inspiration when I listen to any song. This post is about a song I was recently exposed to and is sung by the great Natalia La Fourcade titled, Para Qué Sufrir? It's an amazing acoustic song that can help mellow out your day and bring your spirits up ( check out the link below). From the get go, the opening lyrics opened up a thought process that has been on my mind for awhile now. it starts with, "Para qué sufrir si no hace falta?"
Many times we suffer because we want to and we let the opinions and feelings of other dictate our lives. The lyrics translate to, "Why suffer if its not neccesarry?", and as I listened to them I told myself, "She's right! Why am I so worried and suffering about things/people/situationa that i shouldnt be?" The universe will work itself out as long as my mind and heart are in the right place. In one of our ealrier podcast I talk about a season in my life where I suffered from anxiety and depression. I let the opinions, feelings, and actions of others dictate how i felt and it was not until i decided to take ahold of my mind that it went away. It was a hard process, one that did not involve medication, but I learned that it is possible! It was a combination of controlling my thoughts, meditation, prayer, and strong support from my family. One phrase that helped me throughout was, "He who controls his mind can overcome anything." During those nights when anxiety was at its peak in my life, I would turn on my favorite tunes and meditate on those words untill the anxiety went away...... and away it went for good!
When you are going through a hard season in your life, just remember exactly that word.... season! It's only a season and you will get through it and you will come out stronger and smarter!
Life is to short to live unhappy.
Life is to short to live with regrets.
Do what you love and love what you do!
Stay blessed and wide awake my friends!
