Come on down, ease on down the road!

My running shoes are like Dorothy famous red shoes: they get me home, to myself.

But instead of clicking my heels, I have to run with my shoes. And with every step I take I'm getting closer to the person I am when I'm not a mom, wife, daughter or friend.

Granted, I can be a bit of a whiner, but mostly I turn out to be quite good company!

The yellow brick road in the movie symbolises our life's journey: getting to know yourself, and becoming who you are. And that's not all that easy! We all lug our bagage around with us, and that doesn't make our journey any easier.

So while I'm running I try to get rid off as much bagage as possible. Worries about the children? I throw them between some trees. That stupid fight with my husband about missing socks? I get rid om that on the sidewalk. Slowly but surely I find enlightenment.

In my mind I'm running along the yellow brick road of the movie. And even if I'm really running on a very Dutch bicycle path, or a dirt trail, it doesn't matter.

Because they all lead to the same place: home, to me.

Just like your shoes will get you home to you!

So get your shoes on, and follow your own yellow brick road! To get you started, just listen to this song!



Lyrics

Come on And
Ease on down, Ease on down the road
come on, Ease on down, Ease on down the road
don't you carry nothing that might be a load come on, Ease on down Ease on down, down the road

Come on
Ease on down, Ease on down the road(ease on down)
Come on
Ease on down, Ease on down the road(ease on down)
Don't you carry nothing that might be a load
Come on
Ease on down, Ease on down, down the road

Pick your left foot up, when your right foots down
Come on lets keep moving and don't you lose the ground
You just keep on Keepin' on the road that you choose
Don't you give up walking cause you gave up shoes

Ease on down, Ease on down the road (come on)
Ease on down, Ease on down the road
Don't you carry nothing that might be a load
Come on
Ease on down, Ease on down, down the road

Cause there may be times when you think you lost your mind
And the steps you're taking leave you three four steps behind
But the road you're walking might be long sometimes
You just keep on stepping and you'll be just fine (yeah)

Ease on down, Ease on down the road (ease on down)
Ease on down, Ease on down the road (ease on down)
Don't you carry nothing that might be a load
Come on
Ease on down, Ease on down, down the....

For there may be times, when you wish you wasn't born
And you wake one morning just to find your courage gone
but you know that feeling only last a little while
you just stick with us and we show you how to smile (yeah)

Get 'em up, moving down (ease on down the road)
Get 'em up, moving down (ease on down the road)
Get 'em up, moving down(ease on down the road)
Get 'em up Get 'em up (ease on down)

Don't you carry nothing that might be a load
Come on
Ease on down,ease on down the road!

  1. We all need to run away sometimes, even if only figuratively, but it's good to find the way back to us. So happy you linked up with us at Thursday Favorite Things.
