Art and Love. Hippie stuff.

So, have you ever had one of those moments listening to a favorite song where you feel on top of the world, like everything in your life will line up, and it seems to speak directly to your soul? I have. A lot more recently and especially while I'm driving alone. My point is, it's almost like pieces of heaven that we get to experience on earth. It blows my mind that a God who entirely overcomes the world and wins in the end, is able to bring these simple, BEAUTIFUL moments to my life. I'm sorry if this is vague and you don't understand what I'm talking about. I guess a proper metaphor would be like stopping to smell the roses in your life. If you don't pay attention, you might miss it. And that'd be such a shame because it is, for lack of a better word, incredible. It's not only music that speaks to my soul, but often words. There's nothing like some darn good poetry or quotes. In my head I just say 'YESSS!!' It tends to leave me wonderstruck with a half-smile, butterflies, and new motivation. In closing, some lyrics that describe exactly what I'm speaking of! Thanks for reading, guys. Keep life simple. Be thankful.

Don't Miss It by Francesca Battistelli

"Don't try so hard
To move past the moment
These days go by
And they're gone before you know it
So come on, open your window
Let the light shine in
This is life don't miss it"
