Years ago, there was a James Taylor song entitled, The Secret of Life. I had forgotten about it until someone mentioned it last week.
I listened to the song several times and if you aren’t familiar with it, please listen because the song is a powerful message of paying attention to what is really important in life.
According to the song, appreciating life is about appreciating it as it is in the present. It then states that the secret of love is opening up our heart. How can we appreciate our lives and open our hearts?
It is as simple as living in the now and looking at all that is good and beautiful and in treating others as we want to be treated with a smile, a warm greeting, and a willingness to do what is kind and loving. Like the song says, “anyone can do it”.
