Humble and Kind

September 25, 2016

 

 

Good morning,

 

Today I wanted to share a story about how I came across a new song with lyrics that I believe are powerful.

 

Last week, I went on Youtube and searched for a song to listen too.  I don’t recall the song I searched for, but I generally let YouTube continue to play and go wherever it wants to go. I discover new music this way.  YouTube recently introduced me to a song that was distracting me from editing images.   The words I was hearing, where powerful and really resonated with me.  There was on line that really got me “Let yourself feel proud but always stay humble and kind.”  

 

So today, I want to share this song with you.  Take a minute to listen to this song and read the lyrics.  I hope that it gives you that gentle reminder how time is the most precious gift we can give someone.  I challenge you to think about your interactions with others, and how you choose to interaction with them.   Compassion and empathy are two tools that every person has access too.  Once you learn how to use them, never put them away.   It’s important to stay humble and kind to others. 

 

Song:Humble and Kind

Artist: Tim McGaw

 

You know there's a light that glows by the front door

Don't forget the key's under the mat

When childhood stars shine,

Always stay humble and kind

Go to church 'cause your mamma says to

Visit grandpa every chance that you can

It won't be wasted time

Always stay humble and kind

Hold the door, say "please", say "thank you"

Don't steal, don't cheat, and don't lie

I know you got mountains to climb

But always stay humble and kind

When the dreams you're dreamin' come to you

When the work you put in is realized

Let yourself feel the pride

But always stay humble and kind

Don't expect a free ride from no one

Don't hold a grudge or a chip and here's why:

Bitterness keeps you from flyin'

Always stay humble and kind

Know the difference between sleeping with someone

And sleeping with someone you love

"I love you" ain't no pick-up line

So always stay humble and kind

Hold the door, say "please", say "thank you"

Don't steal, don't cheat, and don't lie

I know you got mountains to climb

But always stay humble and kind

When those dreams you're dreamin' come to you

When the work you put in is realized

Let yourself feel the pride

But always stay humble and kind

When it's hot, eat a root beer popsicle

Shut off the AC and roll the windows down

Let that summer sun shine

Always stay humble and kind

Don't take for granted the love this life gives you

When you get where you're going don't forget turn back around

And help the next one in line

Always stay humble and kind
