Letting Go Of Everything

Let the good times roll
Let them knock you around
Let the good times roll
Let them make you a clown
Let them leave you up in the air
Let them brush your rock and roll hair
Let the good times roll
Let the good times roll-oll
Let the (good times roll)
-The Cars, “Let The Good Times Roll”

Good times, bad times
You know I’ve had my share
-Led Zeppelin, “Good Times, Bad Times”

It’s your tomorrow
(Right now)
C’mon, it’s everything
(Right now)
Catch that magic moment, and do it right, right now
Oh, right now
It’s what’s happening
Right here and now
Right now
It’s right now
Tell me, what are you waiting for?
Turn this thing around
-Van Halen, “Right Now”

Think I’m going down to the well tonight
And I’m going to drink ’til I get my fill
And I hope when I get old I don’t sit around thinking about it
But I probably will
Yeah, just sitting back trying to recapture
A little of the glory of, well time slips away
And leaves you with nothing mister but
Boring stories of

Glory days yeah they’ll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl’s eye
Glory days, glory days
-Bruce Springsteen, “Glory Days”

Being present means letting go of everything so that you can focus on this one moment. Right here. Right now.

Intuitively it makes sense to wanna let go of the bad. Who wants to revisit bad memories?

But to be present, you gotta be willing to let go of the good times too. Otherwise, you’ll be stuck in nostalgia and can’t grow.

It’s a new day. It’s a new moment. Begin again.
