- So today was a tough day for me. But after turning off my phone and taking a moment for myself to watch my favorite shows I felt a little relief from my day. I decided to take a nice shower and as I always do, I play music while I am in the shower. As I am enjoying the hot water, a great song came on; Bobby McFerrin - Dont Worry Be Happy. That song seems to come on when I most need it, well, thats what I like to think. So I am in the shower realizing that its true, why am I down, and worried. Today I was able to: pay my bills, take a nice long hot shower, and have three meals. I live in a beautiful house with my awesome dogs…and the list of what I have to be grateful for goes on and on. I am very lucky to live in New England, where I can receive medical attention for my dystonia. ( Even though, the doctors haven't found much to help; I still receive support and hope ) Now I can rest in peace and forget about the tough day that I had, and be ready for a better tomorrow. Sometimes its just good to reflect on the good things we have instead of always dwelling on the bad. I personally, have way too much to be grateful for, I shouldn't have time to think about anything else. And I also remembered that this weekend my great friends 8 year old daughter asked me why my speech had changed so drastically At the end of our conversation she stated: "I am sure you will talk normal again soon"
You might want to sing it note for note
Don't worry be happy
In every life we have some trouble
When you worry you make it double
Don't worry, be happy"
