Music Mondays #8: Young At Heart by Frank Sinatra

Young At Heart by Frank Sinatra Fairy tales can come true It can happen to you If you’re young at heart For it’s hard, you will find To be narrow of mind If you’re young at heart You can go to extremes with impossible schemes You can laugh when your dreams fall apart at the seams And life gets more exciting with each passing day And love is either in your heart or on it’s way Don’t you know that it’s worth every treasure on earth To be young at heart For as rich as you are it’s much better by far To be young at heart And if you should survive to 105 Look at all you’ll derive out of being alive Then here is the best part You have a head start If you are among the very young at heart Sorry for the boring video LOL.  It’s kinda hard to get a video from 1954 of ol’ blue eyes singing it himself!  Anyhoo, I LOVE this song!  You didn’t know I knew this kind of stuff, eh?  Stick around…you’ll be surprised lol.  Anyway, you know what I get from this song?  Don’t take yourselves too seriously!  As soon as you “grow up,” you begin to die.  I love it when I hear “older” people talking about what they want to be when they grow up.  That says to me that they haven’t stopped dreaming.  “Grown folks” have settled for the status quo and don’t think that there can ever be anything else.  Of course when I say “grown folks” I don’t mean physical adults.  Like Aliyah said, age ain’t nuthin’ but a number!  Age is what you make it.  You ever see someone who is 65 years old and they are OLD, but you see another person their age still exercising and looking GREAT?  Age is what you make it.  That’s why I’m so excited to be turning 30 in less than two years!  It’s nothing to be afraid of if you’re young at heart. You know why fairy tales can still come true for those who are young at heart?  It’s because we BELIEVE they still can!  Nothing will ever happen if you don’t believe it will.  NOTHING!  If you’re sick, but you don’t believe you’ll ever get better, then you won’t!  As a matter of fact, you may even die.  Why?  Unless He’s planned for a miracle to happen or something, God can’t do much with your disbelief.  I mean, He could…but…you know.  Why would He even want to? At age 20, we wanted to do a lot of things.  We said stuff like, I’m gonna open up a clothing store, be a model, have my own record label, be the flagship artist, and do a little real estate investing on the side all at the same time.  There was NOTHING that sounded impossible to us!  Why?  We hadn’t been tainted by the world yet.  However, 10-15 years later the story has changed.  Ask that same dude what’s his plan now, and he says he’s just trying to “make it.”  WHAT?!  He stopped dreaming!  He’s an old man at the age of 35.  Never stop dreaming!  God is not through with you yet.  From the lyrics of Destiny Praise, “He has a plan for you to prosper and a purpose for your future.  He never wants to harm you, and He only wants to bless you…God has a destiny for you!”
