I am too nice for my own good. Sometimes I am nice to a fault and let people walk over me. I guess its because I wanna get along with everyone. We need more nice people in the world but perhaps with a bit of moxie and vinegar when needed.
This was released in the year of my birth 1969. It’s one of the more iconic songs from the era. There is a great classic groove to it.
We as a society and community can get so mired down in the serious things of our lives we forget to enjoy the fun stuff. There is nothing wrong with listening to a pop song, enjoying a guilty pleasure or eating something you really shouldn’t. Right now we live in a world that is full of sadness and hate that we need those moments of silliness, levity, grace to remind us of our humanity. I read a lot of posts and some of those I have written about the world being a dark place to be but we need to remember how to bring some light into the darkness.
Perhaps we should not try to grow up so fast that we forget the fun that can be had today and every day. My friends the world isn’t entirely bad, people aren’t always out to get you and perhaps pursue excellence in being a living person who smiles and laughs in equal measure to crying and frowning. Enjoy the fun of being imperfect, broken, human. Be alive today, you only get one shot at this life.
