Riding High in April

For some reason, Frank Sinatra’s That’s Life has been going, round and round, inside my head and it’s not even May yet!

I think the song has a great sentiment …

That’s life
That’s what all the people say
You’re riding high in April, shot down in May …

But I know I’m gonna change that tune
When I’m back on top, back on top in June

Anyway, I thought you might appreciate hearing it again. Let the words sink in. They represent the kind of determination we need to exhibit if we are to succeed.

It is an incredibly uplifting song and, without wishing away my life, I am already looking forward to June!
