Music is one of life’s inspirations. The artists who motivate us to think, while we tap our toes, deserve to be recognized. I’m kicking off a Musical Monday blog theme with The Beatles’ Help!
“When I was younger so much younger than today
I never needed anybody’s help in any way
But now these days are gone, I’m not so self assured
Now I find I’ve changed my mind and opened up the doors”
-- The Beatles, Help!
In a 1971 Rolling Stone interview, John Lennon said that Help! was one of the few true songs he had ever written about himself. Lennon was only 25 in 1965 when he opened the door to ask for a little help. However, he had already undergone one of the biggest life transformations imaginable.
Life transition on any scale is often stressful. It’s easy to become “not so self assured.” The good news is that like John Lennon, we can always ask for Help!
