Acceptance and Solutions
Both Sides Now - Joni Mitchell
I've looked at life from both sides now,
From WIN and LOSE, and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall.
I really don't know life at all.
- Both Sides Now, Joni Mitchell
This song was one of the lullabies my Mom sung to me when I was small.
You have to laugh at yourself
Or you'll just keep on crying
The last moment is not you now
Don't worry about past problems
Happiness is so essential
It is what all we humans share
The desire to sustain the joyful
Challenges can make us better
Can't dwell upon your troubles
All humans have had rough parts
That question on which to focus
What solutions have you found?
You must take in acceptance
Like Time, you must continue on
That we should gather wisdom
And teach the children.
