"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."
The crazy thing is that I have been preaching this my whole life - take it easy. The trouble is that I don't know how to follow my own advice. I don't take it easy. I get all uptight with my panties in a wad. I pretend that I am "taking it easy" but in reality, I suck at it.
I am a procrastinator - this is my attempt at "taking it easy" but in reality this just makes it harder on me and then I stress and kill myself with anxiety trying to catch up. Procrastination is a very skewed way to think about taking it easy. It doesn't work.

Okay back to the song - I want you to really listen to it. Can you agree with the lyrics? Pretend Don Henley is singing to himself and not to some scorned lovers and a new woman. Now do you hear it? Can you hear the sage advice being spoken? It screams at me to slow down, take a close look at myself, forgive myself, and live my life taking it easy. This doesn't mean lazy - it means a life full of compassion, forgiveness, and positive vibes everywhere.
TAKE IT EASY!
