Don’t exist, live
Bracing myself for more bad news.
Well that wasn’t the most positive way to start a post, was it? But that’s just how life goes sometimes.
While I am anxiously waiting for test results, lets talk about something a little more uplifting.
Lately I’ve been staring at my phone, worrying about stuff out of my control. Oh you know allowing stuff that really doesn’t matter take up space in my brain. Stuff that sucks the joy out of my soul. With time I can’t get back. For no good reason at all.
While driving home from the grocery store, a song I’d never heard before came on and I immediately loved it. The sun was shining, it was warm outside so I dropped the top, cranked the radio up really loud and drove down the 1 home.
And just like that I realized the vicious cycle I’ve allowed myself to be in and my perspective changed. Things that have been clouding my mind lifted and I was enjoying just being the moment.
Man, it’s so easy to get caught up in mundane daily tasks, but that’s not the way life has to be.
Sometimes we need a little reminder to just live. To enjoy the small things that surround us but we somehow don’t pay much attention to.
So here’s a little reminder for you:
Don’t just exist, LIVE.
