So, it’s no secret that I love all kinds of music. If you saw my Spotify account, you would think I had multiple personalities! No one can get it right like some country folks though, I am going to be honest! Simple, heart felt lyrics at their best. I think one of my favorite songs based on lyrics is “Love Like Crazy” by Lee Brice. If you do not know this song, you have to listen to it, or just read the lyrics.
I typed this without looking it up, I know this song by heart. I know every word to this song, as I listen to it often. It reminds me of things that my grandparents would tell me when I was little. They always taught me to do what was right, even if I didn’t like the consequences. Some of the words in this song are so simple, yet I think we forget them a lot.
You should always be a friend, even when someone isn’t being one back.
Always tell the truth and be honest. If you lie, you start living those lies. It’s too much to keep up with! You will loose who you are.
You should always express your love to those close to you. I never get off the phone with my mom, dad, sister, and husband without saying “I love you.” I even tell some friends that I love them as well.
You should always do your best. Even when you are discouraged. When you give your all and work hard, you will eventually be rewarded in one way or another. You will know that you gave everything you had, and if it didn’t work out…you did your best. You can’t beat yourself up over your best.
Common sense is something that some people throw out the window. You can be the smartest book smart person on the planet, but if you ain’t got common sense, you ain’t got shit. (Sorry, I was thinking about some common sense smart country folks when I said that.)
Something I am guilty about is not praying regularly like I should. You should NEVER let your praying knees get lazy, and this is something I am going to work on.
I was at a funeral yesterday. Some of the children of the man that passed talked about how he always did the right thing, and worked very hard. They have a huge, successful business now…and truth and hard work were the foundation of that business that their father built on.
I think sometimes we need a reminder of those things. Perhaps living your life more simply, will turn you into something extraordinary. The most extraordinary people I know, are just your average people who live their lives by doing the right thing.
You should always be there for family, no matter what. Love people unconditionally. Always help others that need it. Give when you can. Be quiet when you should. And be thankful every day for what you have.
