ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN……….

“Anything can happen if you let it……”

Over and over through my head this week. Last weekend was the kids’ show, “Mary Poppins” and that was the last song in the show. I work backstage with the props so I heard that song at least 2x a show for 8 shows.

I guess it’s not the worst song to have stuck in my head…

Needless to say, I have been pondering that phrase.

Think about it…

“Anything can happen if you let it”….

I can get a better job- if I let it happen.

I can get out of an abusive situation- if I let it happen.

I can go back to school and get my degree-if I let it happen.

I can put my family first-if I let it happen.

Think about anything that you wish to happen. Any situation that needs to change in your life. In your child’s life. In your families.

IF YOU LET IT….

Bad situations and good situations.

IF YOU LET IT…

If you allow bad stuff to happen, it will happen.

If you allow good stuff to happen, it will happen.

The show was a hit. I think lots of people resonated with the message. If you are familiar with the story of Mary Poppins, you will realize the story is not at all about Mary Poppins. I have read the book. I have watched the Disney version. I have watched “Saving Mr. Banks” about Disney’s struggle to get PL Travers to let him create “Mary Poppins” the movie.

The movie is instead about Mr. Banks.

It’s a beautiful story about his turnaround and becoming the husband and father his family needs. So many resonate with this story. Children need their fathers.

Children need their parents.

Fathers. Mothers. Your children need you.

IF YOU LET IT……..

Winifred, Jane, Michael & Mary Poppins

Anything can happen if you let it

Winifred

You Won’t know a challenge until you’ve met it

Michael

No-one does it for you

Winifred

No-One but yourself wacillating violets get left up

Mary Poppins

That should be my epitah I wear the badge in honour of this world’s free thinkers

Winifred

Those who see beyond their blinkers

Winifred, Jane & Michael

Broaden Your Horizon

Mrs.Corry

Raise the curtain things you thought impossible

Bert & Mrs.Corry

Will soon seem certain though at first it may sound clownfish see the world

more upside-downish turn it on its head then pirouette it

Bert, Mrs. Corry & Lamp-lighters

Anything can happen if you let it

Mary Poppins

If you reach for the stars all you get are the stars

but we’ve found a whole new spin if you reach for the heavens

All

You get the stars thrown in if you reach

for the stars all you get are the stars but we’ve found a whole new spin if you

reach for the heavens you get the stars thrown in

Anthing can happen if you let it life out there waiting

so go and get it grab it by the collar seize it by the scruff one

you’ve started living life you just can’t get enough

Anything can happen it’s official you can choose the super

or the superficial sally forth the way we’re steering obstacles

start disappearing go and chase your dreams you won’t regret it

Anything can happen Anything can happen

Jane & Michael

Anything can happen

All

If you let it
