One of my favorite artists from back in the day,Howard Jones, 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 he happily cautions in the chorus,Don’t try to live your life in one day, don’t go speed your time away.”

I recently came into a newfound appreciation for the wisdom of his pop songs – beyond what the catchy tunes, a cute face and big orange ’80s mohawk hairdo did for me back then.

Fashion and music always comes around again in slightly different forms. Nowadays 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 about yourself, someone else, or the situation can you look at and see with new eyes, appreciate and/or put to use in a totally different way? What blast from your past – whether a song, piece of clothing, relationship or talent – can you relish in now, but in a more profound way?

Not sure what gems you might have forgotten 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 by doing so, discover that indeed “Things Can Only Get Better.”
