Hi everyone, i hope this finds you well.
Just to say that my name is Steve and i recently lost Sue, my wonderful wife of 40 years to cancer. Therefore, my blogs are not always happy go lucky cups of glee.
But i do try to stay upbeat if i can. i kinda grasp at any straw if it keeps me going.
Today i sat through a My Little Pony film with my lil princess, my granddaughter. As a 60+ year old man, it wasn’t the greatest film that i’ve ever seen, but this song made me think.
To me, my Sue was, and is, a legend. What i mean by that is this : she did her own thing. Sue didn’t follow other people, or the ways of the world. Do you know what i mean?
Nowadays, comedians don’t rely on being funny. If they are losing their audience, they just throw in a few swear words, a few crude gestures, and hey, they’re back on track.
Songwriters used to talk of love, smiles and togetherness. Now, it’s as many one night stands as possible, (often caused by the pressure of peers, or simply the modern world), or perhaps, a derogatory word here, a disrespectful remark there. Am I making sense?
This simple song says : ““Be a hero, Be yourself, Be the legend you are MEANT to be””
In other words,
listen to your heart, be true to yourself, be the person that you are supposed to be.
Then you can look at yourself in the mirror and smile, and sleep soundly and well at night.
OK, nuff said, i hope this means something to someone out there, it speaks to me.
Take care of yourselves and each other,
