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:
We each row our own boat, we are responsible for ourselves
Life is like a stream, we can be in its flow, or it can pass us by.
When you row gently, going with life not against it, good things happen
We can influence our mood, merry is a good way to go
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
