One of my favorite artists from back in the day, Howard Jones, once sang “The old man said to me, don’t always take life so seriously….Try and enjoy the here and now, the future will take care of itself somehow.” And happily cautions in the chorus, “Don’t try to life your life in one day, don’t go speed your time away.”

Fashion and music always comes around again in slightly different forms. Nowadays with this economy everyone is cutting back and having to scale down and tap into whatever material and personal resources they have. It’s a good time to reflect on what facets within you can be recycled and refurbished. What things about yourself, someone else or situation can you look at and see with new eyes, appreciate and/or put to use in a totally different way? What blasts from your past – whether a song, piece of clothing, relationship or talent in yourself can you relish in now but in a more profound way?
Not sure what gems you might have forgotten about that can be dug up and polished off for your greater good? Give me a buzz and I’ll help you do some excavating to resurrect those parts of your life that have been dormant far too long and show you by doing so that indeed, “Things can only get better”!
