What does your favourite nursery rhyme tell you?

Like 1 Comment

Row Row Row your boat

Gently down the stream

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily

Life is but a dream

It might seem a strange source of wisdom, but this childhood rhyme is packed with wisdom.  Here are just five insights it puts me in mind of:

  1.  We each row our own boat, we are responsible for ourselves

  2. Life is like a stream, we can be in its flow, or it can pass us by.

  3. When you row gently, going with life not against it, good things happen

  4. We can influence our mood, merry is a good way to go

  5. Life is what we perceive it to be, we each have our own experience of it, don’t hold on too tightly to what you believe

Which childhood rhymes and sayings mean the most to you?  What do you take from them?
