“Don’t expect a free ride from no one
Don’t hold a grudge or a chip and here’s why:
Bitterness keeps you from flyin’
Always stay humble and kind”

This song has been on my mind, since I heard Addison Agen sing it on The Voice last week. The song was special to her, you could tell by the way she sang it and how she was overcome with emotion, at the end of the song. Personally I don’t know how young people of this age, hold up under the months it takes, to tape and produce this show. Showing your true emotions when singing, makes for a terrific singer and performer. Addison is only sixteen, she still has many things to learn, but I don’t think we’ve heard the last of Addison.

There are many excellent points in this song written by Tim McGraw. Such as the one above,  Don’t hold a grudge or a chip and here’s why: Bitterness keeps you from flyin'”  Living with migraine, I need to be able to fly, when I’m able to, I don’t and I can’t be trapped by bitterness. Always stay humble and kind!

“Hold the door, say “please”, say “thank you”
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you got mountains to climb
But always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride
But always stay humble and kind”

Most of this, is just plain common sense, but it seems that many folks have lost their common sense. “Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie!” Seems simply enough, but it’s getting to the point, that you don’t know who to trust. That is truly sad and not the same meaning, I see Tweeted all to often! Always stay humble and kind!

“I know you got mountains to climb
But always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride
But always stay humble and kind”

I have plenty of mountains to climb and I’m sure that you do too. “When the dreams you’re dreaming dreamin’ come to you. When the work you put in is realized, let yourself feel the pride. But always stay HUMBLE and KIND“!  I’m sharing this part of the song, to let anyone who has a hobby, sings, cooks or bakes, because they love to. Don’t ever give up on your dreams. Don’t let migraine disease steal that from you and the rest of the family! Always stay humble and kind!

“Don’t take for granted the love this life gives you
When you get where you’re going don’t forget turn back around
And help the next one in line
Always stay humble and
kind”

Don’t take for granted, the migraine community, and the love it gives each of us! I don’t know how I made it through, thirteen years of chronic migraine, without any support. Besides my husband and family, while I am very thankful for them, it is just not the same, as talking with someone who is going through the same thing you are. Also I’ve made some very special friends, over the past four years! That means so much to me, I lost a someone who I thought was my best friend, because I stopped going to church. We had been friends for over thirty years, I just couldn’t take the loud music and children. That didn’t matter to her, I wasn’t good enough anymore. It was like having my heart ripped out. I guess our friendship wasn’t as close as I thought. Lesson learned the hard way, no matter I have friends now, who have better friends in fours years, than she was in thirty. Always stay humble and kind, and let it go!
