"Soak it all in. It's a game you can't win. Enjoy the ride."

Posted by kmhanc01 on November 17, 2013 at 5:45 PM

In the midst of a gloomy November day filled with studying and job-hunt stress, I needed to find a positive pick-me-up. Whenever I'm feeling stressed, I go straight to one of three things: 1) driving through the country and stopping to pet horses, 2) paiting, or 3) music. Due to the current tornado warning (Yes, a tornado in November, WHAT!?...), option 1 isn't quite possible. My go-to music pick-me-up is Zac Brown Band's "Quiet Your Mind" -- a song with great music and even more powerful lyrics (**link provided below**).


It is easy to focus on negativities that are out of our control. Far too many times in my life I've done just that. However, I've been trying to do as this song suggests: accept things that are out of my control, and enjoy the ride as it comes. By wishing things away, you waste certain aspects and lessons of life. So, as Zac Brown says...

I hear the waves
Sun beatin' down on my shoulders
It's a near-perfect day
Wishin' I wouldn't get any older
They say that it's gone 'fore you know it now


Quiet your mind
Soak it all in
It's a game you can't win
Enjoy the ride


I feel the change
Goin' on all around me
It's strange
How I'm taken and guided
Where I end up right where I'm needed to be


Quiet your mind
Soak it all in
It's a game you can't win
Enjoy the ride


At the end of the water
A red sun is risin'
And the stars are all goin' away
And if you're too busy talkin'
You're not busy listenin'
To hear what the land has to say


Quiet your mind


I hear the waves
Sun beatin' down on my shoulders
It's a near-perfect day
Wishin' I wouldn't get any older
They say that it's gone 'fore you know it and
Soak it all in
It's a game you can't win
Enjoy the ride
