Sing A Song*

March 29, 2020

I am positive that having a positive attitude is always the best way to live.  A positive attitude does not guarantee a positive outcome, but it does guarantee that you will be better able to handle anything that comes your way.  A positive attitude can improve your immune system versus a negative attitude that weakens it.

When negative thoughts try to enter, and they will, especially now, sing them away with a song.

Sing it out loud, or to yourself, or to someone who needs to hear it.  No sad songs, only songs that will lift you up, put a smile on your face, bring some tears of joy, and give you hope!

If words are the pen of the heart, then song is the pen of the soul.” – Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi

Here is a list of suggestions.  All of these songs do it for me*

*”Sing A Song” – Earth, Wind, and Fire

“Put On A Happy Face” -Dick Van Dyke from “Bye, Bye Birdie”

“I Whistle A Happy Tune” – Gertrude Lawrence From “The King and I”

“Something’s Coming” – Brian Stokes Mitchell original version from “West Side Story”

“Here Comes The Sun” – Richie Havens

“Tomorrow” – Aileen Quinn from “Annie”

“You’ll Never Walk Alone” – Gerry and the Pacemakers original version from “Carousel’

“What The World Needs Now Is Love” -Jackie De Shannon

“Put A Little Love In Your Heart” – Jackie DE Shannon

“Somewhere Over The Rainbow” – Judy Garland from “The Wizard Of Oz”

“Smile – Nat King Cole

“What A Wonderful World” – Louis Armstrong

“You’ve Got A Friend” – Carole King

“Impossible Dream” – Brian Stokes Mitchell from “Man Of La Mancha”

“Gonna Fly Now” – from “Rocky”

There are many, many more.  Please use the comment box to add your suggestions

Be Good Do Good Think Good Be Kind Be Healthy

    Hi Fred!

    Last month I saw the following sign posted at the San Rafael Toyota dealership when I brought our Prius in for service. It made my day.

    “You can’t always have a good day…..But you can always face a bad day with a good attitude!”
