I never would imagine in my younger years that my car radio would be tuned in 24 hours a day. On top of that, I can now place myself in any decade of my life by listening to the variety “oldies” channels.
The years leading up to my pre-teens from my best recollection had very little worries or stress. I’m sure my parents carried that load.
Then real life kicked in along with boyfriends, teen dances and loads of homework from school.
The lucky thing keeping a distance from anyone was as easy as taking your phone off the hook.
College days, serious relationships and decisions with repercussions came along, and we were shaking out heads for real and not just typing SMH.
Next came full life in motion and I jumped in with both feet and have been rolling full steam ever since.
But in any event, I slow down easily by turning on the 60’s, 70’s or 80’s channel just about anywhere. Music can change my mood in a second. Without a doubt, I have had rough times, but for some reason, I always remember the good and fun memories.
So, when my day is not going well I just remind myself that in 10 years, the worries of today will be the songs of tomorrow.
Thank a babyboomer for sharing love, compassion and peace for all people 🙂
