Having written over 200 songs with countless hits, it is inevitable that their lyrics contain strong messages when it comes to living life to the fullest. When pondering the most important things in life, you must take a long hard look at yourself.

Remember, All You Need is Love

In life, we need to feel connected to others. Through friends, family, or a beloved pet, we release, recharge, or simply relax. Having others that one can depend on is important. Not only does the support of others allow us to feel secure and confident in good times, but will help when we are hit with those unforeseeable yet inevitable bumps in the road. Whether we need help during a personal hardship, or simply desire a listening ear after a hard day — ultimately, as humans, we seek companionship. Depending solely on oneself is a daunting and lonely task. In addition, being a source of support for others will help you to grow as a person while exercising empathy, camaraderie, and problem solving. Keep in mind the wise words from the legendary group: “There’s nothing you can make that can’t be made. No one you can save that can’t be saved. Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time.” Oftentimes, our relationships with others help to define ourselves and shape our lives. Also, let’s not forget joy. The most precious moments in life whether they be personal achievements or life altering moments are best when shared with others.

In the words of the Beatles, “It’s easy. All you need is love.”

Learn to Let it Be

Learning to let things go and find a peace when times are tough is an acquired skill. Not everything can be fixed or instantaneously changed, and therefore sometimes we sometimes need to take a breath to retain composure and remain calm. Seeking ways to deal with “times of trouble” is essential in staying mentally healthy and productive in the face of adversity. The lyrics, “And when the night is cloudy. There is still a light that shines on me. Shine on until tomorrow, let it be” express the sentiment that in order to get through the tough times, we must embrace an inner light and holster the strength within. Not only should we be embracing inner strength, but it is helpful find a way to cope with stress in order to find and maintain inner peace. Some people find release through exercise, meditation, spirituality, or a myriad of other ways to cope. A Beginner’s Guide to Mindful Meditation will introduce you to meditation techniques and help you to embrace the concept of mindfulness. Maintaining a handle on life’s difficulties and having a healthy perspective will help you to “wake up to the sound of music.”

Also, achieving balance with the many responsibilities or facets of your life is important. Realizing that as things change, you will never check all of the items off of your to-do list is an essential step toward achieving balance when it comes to responsibilities – career or family orientated. Doing what needs to be done and being at peace with what you can (and cannot) do is a healthy way to manage a busy life. Take the time to listen and “there will be an answer.” Quite simply, just “let it be.” In life, it is important to remain resilient and continue moving forward when rain comes your way. The message of the song “Rain” is clear: “When the rain comes they run and hide their heads. They might as well be dead. When the sun shines they slip into the shade…and sip their lemonade.” It is easy to function and be positive on a good day. How you react and recover on tough days speaks volumes about one’s inner-spirit.

 Discover the Beautiful Dreamer Inside of You

It is important to have dreams – a goal or achievement for which to strive. A dream or aspiration does not need to be a grandiose plan. It could simply be a small change to improve one’s life. Often, it is easy to become stuck in a rut and neglect to take the time on trying to improve one’s life or spend time on a dream. The song, Beautiful Dreamer describes the power of a dream and its ability to overcome the “sounds of the rude world heard in the day.” A beautiful dreamer creates a “beam on my heart,” and in turn will make “all clouds of sorrow depart.” Dreams truly breathe life into daily existence. Having something to strive for helps us to develop in the many roles that we play. Dreams make us better employees, better parents, better citizens, and better human beings. Simply trying to become a better version of oneself with  short-term goals or successfully achieving a lofty goal both help us advance as people. Are you searching for purpose or unsure about how to fulfill your destiny? This course will help turn your dreams into reality.

Embracing the love of others, learning to let things be, and chasing dreams are all important in enriching one’s life. Taking the time to examine your lifestyle and assess the way you are living is constructive and oftentimes necessary for self-growth.   For more suggestions on how to live a happier life, check out  this article which outlines ten rules.
