This is the Original Friday Inspiration series – amazing things that we handpicked to inspire you. This week’s post theme is “Dust in the wind”.

After reading a book of Native American poetry, Kansas guitarist Kerry Livgren wrote the famous song. “For all we are is dust in the wind” was the line that caught his attention.

This got him thinking about the true value of things and what success really meant. The band was doing well and making money, but Kerry realized that, like everyone else, he would die one day. We all end up in the ground, regardless of our possessions or achievements.

Hit the play button and let’s learn how to enjoy the simple things in life again:
