Q is for Que Sera Sera

Today’s letter is Q.
Doris day immediately began singing Que Sera Sera when I thought what for Q.

Que Sera Sera literally means whatever will be, will be. It is a philosophy quite close to my heart.

Listen to this wonderful song.

In this song, the singer talks about her childhood, youth and motherhood to explain just how this attitude had worked wonders in her life.

When she was a little girl, she had asked mother whether she will grow up to become a rich and pretty girl. Her mother chides her telling future is not for anyone to foretell and whatever will be, will be…Que Sera Sera.

Her lover in her youth echoes the same thoughts and she comes to understand the importance of living in the moment, without any worries about future. He assures Que Sera Sera.

Now that she has become a mother, she teaches the same to her kids when they have the same queries that she had in her childhood.

This song from the movie, The man who knew too muchteaches a wonderful lesson to all of us.

At every stage in our lives, we do worry about our future.  What will be tomorrow like?

Will the new dawn bring fresh hopes or will it bring bitter tears?

Will my efforts to succeed find fruition?

Many questions do haunt us.

 What if we could muster the courage to face these questions with a mere phrase..Que Sera Sera.

This post is a part of Blogging from A-Z April Challenge.

The Blogging from A to Z April Challenge was first held in 2010. The challenge is that we have to post every day of April, except on the four Sundays. April 1st is a theme with letter A, 2nd with letter B and so on till April 30th which will be Z themed. My theme is #Learning Everyday, I post about new random things every day.
