Hakuna matata

Hakuna Matata

 

 

Hakuna matata. It means “no worries”. This expression should be an essential part of our tense adult lives. All children worry about is what toy they want and which kid to annoy, which candy to eat (Although children aren’t as innocent any more but still), their worries don’t last much. It’s us who have these gigantic responsibilities which give us serious headaches.

Worry doesn’t get us anywhere, now does it? All it does it take up our precious time and destroy our should-be-worry-less-moments. We think and think and think but the solution to our problems just slips by and that worries us even more. We know we shouldn’t worry so much but we still can’t help it. We are built that way. Living life to the fullest is easy to say, hard to do.

So what do we do? I suggest keeping this song on top of your playlist and listening to it whenever it gets too much. It’s childish I know but aren’t kids the happiest? Everybody has problems. Life sucks sometimes. So, let the adult part of you rest a little bit and let your inner child out. For a child, everyday is an adventure, an interesting challenge. And who doesn’t love challenges?

Hakuna matata!

The same

I was an exchange student once you see,
I saw a whole new world,
a different place,
a different stage,
another culture,
another space,
People wore different clothes,
had different parties,
celebrated other events,
danced to different music.
But the differences were few,
the similarities were huge.
They too liked to love,
They too liked to share.
Smiling was a habit,
Caring wasn’t rare.

We might look different,
we might see different,
but we are the same.
Worldwide.
