Five Minute Friday: Easy

This week Five Minute Friday is ...easy.

In "Take it Easy" Jackson Browne and the late Glenn Frey (RIP) counsel us to...

Take it easy!
Don't let the sound of your own wheels drive you crazy
Lighten up while you still can
Don't even try to understand
Just find a place to make your stand, and take it easy.

Take it easy, lighten up? Who doesn't need that reminder? If you're trying to complete almost anything – project, task, or chore –you generally get the best results with a moderate amount of effort. Trying too hard can tie a person up in knots. Not trying at all? Usually equals not getting any results at all. Lionel Richie and the Commodores sing "easy like Sunday morning." Sunday mornings, when we trust and relax into the easy, effortless movement of grace. You don't need to do anything, just gotta be. Be who you are. Be where you are. How you are. So easy! Sunday best attire's the style of how we are, act, and socialize on a Sunday or non-work non-school day. Easy's not about the outcome and the performance, Don't even try to understand... because if I try too hard, the sound of my own wheels turning around in my head will drive me crazy.
