As I was looking through our music on the computer today, I came across this song. I totally needed to hear this today and in fact, it even made me cry. Our lives really are so short and we really are so small in this vast universe.
I feel like I waste so much of my time worrying about anything and everything and trying to get my life together because for some reason it is never good enough for me as it is and I always convince myself that I can be truly happy later, when I am just a little better. I spend too much time in my head thinking about how I want to live my life someday and not enough time just living it today. Meanwhile it is slipping by, day after day and I am missing it because my thoughts are always on either what happened in the past or what might happen in the future.
I especially like the part of this song where she says, what you’ve been out there searching for forever is in your hands. This is so true. Life is not ‘out there,’ it is here now.Time is flying by and we won’t get it back.
Enjoy your life today, wherever you are and in whatever situation you may be in. Forget about your miniscule ‘problems’. Forget about the past and don’t waste your time dreaming up your future, which may never actually come. Live for today and for every moment that you are blessed with. Tell someone you love them and don’t be afraid to let love in. Everything else really is so small.
