I was driving the other day and on my way I heard this song from the radio and the lyrics made me ponder about life. It’s called Humble and Kind by Tim McGraw.
You know there’s a light that glows by the front door. Don’t forget the key’s under the mat. When childhood stars shine, always stay humble and kind
Go to church ’cause your mamma says to. Visit grandpa every chance that you can. It won’t be wasted time. Always stay humble and kind
Hold the door, say “please”, say “thank you.” Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie. I know you got mountains to climb. But always stay humble and kind.
When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you, when the work you put in is realized, let yourself feel the pride. But always stay humble and kind.
Don’t expect a free ride from no one. Don’t hold a grudge or a chip and here’s why: Bitterness keeps you from flyin’. Always stay humble and kind.
Know the difference between sleeping with someone and sleeping with someone you love. “I love you” ain’t no pick-up line. So always stay humble and kind.
When it’s hot, eat a root beer popsicle. Shut off the AC and roll the windows down. Let that summer sun shine. Always stay humble and kind.
Don’t take for granted the love this life gives you. When you get where you’re going don’t forget turn back around and help the next one in line. Always stay humble and kind.
