Why is Life so Hard? Advice from B. B. King

"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
Martin Luther King Jr.

Feeling Discouraged?

Lately, I've heard from many people feeling discouraged and disheartened by disruptions in their life, relationships and careers. Perhaps you're one.

Sometimes life is hard. It doesn't always go the way you want it to go, and sometimes you have to deal with difficulties you don't want to deal with.

Through the years I have always found myself returning to a B.B. King song 'Better Not Look Down' to lift me up and provide me the spirit to take the next step. They don't call him the King of Blues for nothing!

Today, I offer you a link to BB King's answer to the blues. Take a break from your troubles to listen--and don't look down!

B B King - Better Not Look Down

"You better not look down if you want to keep on flying;
Put the hammer down, and keep it full speed ahead.
Better not look back or you might just  wind up crying;
You can keep it moving if you don't look down." BB King

BB King IS the King of Blues--able to express those rich, deep tones of life!

Sometimes it just isn't necessary to say it over again...just listen to the King of Blues tell you how it is!
