One of my favorite songs of all time is the cover version of “Easy” by Faith No More.
If you have never heard it, here it is:
I love it because Mike Patton, the singer, even though he fronts an alternative metal/funk/rock group, has some deep down soul. Even though he is singing about going through a really difficult time, he is just as he says, Easy like a Sunday morning.
There are moments when we all need to feel that energy of being Easy like a Sunday morning.
Sunday morning is Easy because there is a lot of day ahead.
Sunday morning is Easy because it is not quite Monday morning.
Sunday morning is Easy because you can forget all of your worries.
Sunday morning is Easy because it’s calm and doesn’t require thought or effort.
Sunday morning is Easy because it’s tranquil and serene.
Sunday morning is Easy because you can relax and just be present in the moment.
The next time that you are feeling stressed, I would encourage you to give this song a listen. It might be when you are anticipating a particularly difficult day, or it might be after a stressful week.
Listen to the song and let it wash over you.
Let it take your worries away.
Listen to the song and just be.
Be present and…
like Sunday morning.
