This is Digby Pancake. There are so many sounds all around us. This weekend, I heard the lawn mower a lot.
I also heard the persons complaining about how tired they were.
I also heard concerns about my health and talk of Brickle’s vet appointment on Wednesday. I didn’t share that bit of information with him yet. So shhhh.
But above everything else, I heard music. My favorite kind.
Was the music louder than all the sounds around me? Not at all.
But I chose to focus on the music instead of the other stuff.
Simply because I wanted to.
It took more effort to concentrate on the music. But I chose to do so.
So many things can get us down. And it’s easy to get down. It’s not easy to stand up for ourselves and give ourselves a break sometimes.
We all need a break.
We can’t help others 24 hours a day. And we can’t work 24 hours a day. Use some of your hours for good things. For a good meal. For some good music.
If we are fortunate enough to be able to hear, show your appreciation.
Turn off the bad noise. And take in the good.
You have a privilege not everyone has. Listen to the music.
