I used to. I was showering this morning though, and I realized that I don’t anymore. I don’t know why I thought of it, I just did. I used to sing in the shower all the time. I mean come on, with those acoustics, we all sound fabulous in the shower!
So as I shampooed my hair, I started really thinking about it. Why don’t I sing in the shower anymore? Is it because I’m afraid of getting told to shut up? Hardly. After some thought, I decided that it is similar to “stopping to smell the roses.” I’m certainly not too busy to sing in the shower, cause hey, I’m in there anyway. I think I just don’t because I’m spending my time thinking about other things. That stuff I have to order when I get to work. What I’m going to make for supper tonight. I have to get the house cleaned this week, before our company comes on the weekend. Ugh, especially this shower!
Life takes over. There are too many other things to do and too many other things to think about so we forget to stop and enjoy the small pleasures.
I for one, am going to try to change that about myself and stop to smell the roses sometimes. Or just do my thinking as I dry off and stop and enjoy the hot water and belt out a show tune or two. I apologize in advance to anyone within hearing distance.
