~*Day 22 of 365*~
"Side By Side"
It's been about 5 months since my last post.
I can hardly believe how quickly that much time swished by...
2013 has been really full of new things for me.
I've been writing, recording, and traveling all over the place.
I recently celebrated my 1 year anniversary of packing up my life and moving it here to Nashville.
Things have been so busy.
This month has given me some down time from traveling, but I am working every day.
Some days I just get in this depressed kind of funky mood, and can't seem to shake it.
This last week, I have had multiple days like that.
It makes for a good balance, I suppose, as I am more often than not a very upbeat and positive person.
Nobody is unidimensional, though...that would just be stupid.
Today I had a breakthrough, I think. And this song is a representation of that breakthrough.
Sometimes, someone comes into your life that is so good for you, it's just dumb that you didn't have them in your life before. Someone that somehow manages to make you laugh even when all you wanted to do was cry your eyes out. Or squeezes you so hard that suddenly, you feel invincible to all the awful things in this world. Just because, that's who they are.
My dear dear friend Kirsten once told me to "Chase the happy and hold on tight."
So everyday, I am resolved to chasing that happy.
It's going to be rough some days, but that's just the way life works, I guess.
This song is just a testament to having friends, family, loved ones to be there for each other.
To know that you're not alone in ever feeling down and pitiful. It's natural...
"Don't know what's coming tomorrow. Maybe it's trouble and sorrow.
But we'll travel the road. Sharing our load, side by side"
Who really knows what's coming tomorrow? Who cares?
I've lived in the "now" more in this last year than I ever have. And I'm so glad for it.
So, find people that make you want to live for "now" and worry less about
what the future may or may not hold, and just enjoy the ride.
