This was the Kinks’ last big hit.
Well, I’m still hopeful that they’ll get back together, so I guess I’ll say it’s their last big hit so far.
The song’s meaning is pretty simple. Get back up and do it again.
I think that, at least at times, this is a tough one for most of us. We get knocked down by lots of things. Love, career, finances, health, family, friends and those you thought were friends.
Sometimes, it’s just really difficult to get back up. Sometimes the hits are hard. Sometimes it takes away our hope, our will, our motivation.
And sometimes, we just can’t help feeling sorry for ourselves, deciding that we’re just not getting back up again. We’ve had it. We give. Just don’t hit us anymore.
But those are the times when it’s most important to get back up again.
It’s okay to feel beaten. To feel like everything you’ve done is useless, worthless. But you can’t live there.
It may be hard to believe, but the Universe isn’t conspiring against you. Bad stuff happens to everyone. We all lose jobs, get cheated or feel betrayed.
That doesn’t mean it’s over. That just means you’re human. Like everyone else.
Even like the person who may have, temporarily, beaten or cheated or betrayed you.
And even if it seems hopeless, never let them steal your dreams. Any hit, no matter how catastrophic it may feel, is just a temporary set-back. You can still win. You can still do what you really want. You can still achieve your dreams.
But first, you have to get back up. And do it again.
While that message is important, I also picked that song, or maybe that song picked me, for another reason.
I’m starting something new this week on Psychic Tapestry. It’s called Psychic Tapestry Déjà vu. Each weekday, I’ll be airing an encore presentation of a previously aired Psychic Tapestry program.
Yes, that’s a very nice way of saying “reruns”.
The difference here is that these shows will air during the week, staggered at different times. The hope here is that I can get some of the messages we receive on Psychic Tapestry out to others who may have missed the original broadcast, and to those who have never even heard of Psychic Tapestry.
The regular show will continue to air live on Saturday mornings at 10am (Pacific), and will not be affected by the Déjà vu shows.
I just wanted to seize an opportunity that Blog Talk Radio offered me to reach more people. I’ve been fortunate enough to have had some terrific guests on over the past month, and they’ve all delivered some very powerful messages. And I’d like to give others a chance to hear those messages.
You can check out the complete schedule HERE for this week’s Déjà vu shows.
Thanks so much for your continued support! Your calls, your comments, your likes – all of it – helps keep Psychic Tapestry going, and makes me get back up to do it again!
Ken Kessler has always been interested in psychic phenomena, and like Mulder on the X-Files, wants to believe. But like most, he tends to look for, and accept, rational explanations. (More)
