There are certain people who walk the earth with so much grace, making an impact through all that they are and all that they do. And in my humble opinion, George Michael was one of them.

Today as we all know, the world mourn for the loss of yet another young and massively talented singer, George Michael.

His music brought so much joy to my heart, and to the hearts of millions of people from all over the world. And as a way to honor him and all that he left behind, I’ve compiled some of the best life lessons to learn from him.

Enjoy 🙂

1. You’ll never find peace of mind until you listen to your heart.

“You’ll never find peace of mind until you listen to your heart.” ~ George Michael

2. No matter what happens, eventually you will get your courage back.

“I went through a long period where I was afraid of doing things I wanted to do, and you get your courage back, which is what’s important.” ~ George Michael

3. Nobody can make you happy but yourself.

“Be good to yourself ’cause nobody else has the power to make you happy.” ~ George Michael

4. As long as you’re still alive. your mission on Earth is not yet finished.

“I have to believe that somebody up there thinks I’ve still got some work to do.”

5. Music is one of the greatest gifts that God gave to us.

“I still believe that music is one of the greatest gifts that God gave to man.”

6. Allow those you love to be as they are.

“People, you can never change the way they feel. Better let them do what they will. For they will, if you let them, steal your heart.”

7. Be free to express yourself.

“It’s important to me that I should be free to express myself.”

8. Time will set you free.

“Only time will set you free, just like me.”

R.I.P. George Michael….

    Anne, we all have our own inner demons and at times, these demons take over us and they make us forget who we are and how pure, kind and loving we were created to be. And George Michael had his own struggles. Compassion is a better approach than judgement. We never know what life will bring our way, and its better to give that which we would love to receive 🙂

    God bless.

    I am 66 years old and had never heard of him until yesterday. Watched some of his younger videos. He had talent. Good looking young guy too. How did he come to loose all his looks. Sorry, a man that wears stubble and can’t look clean shaven does not get a second look from me.
