3 doors down

Today has been a strange day, in a really marvelous way.  Dare I say I was chipper?

If you know me, then you know this is not a normal state for me, even on a good day.  

I even found myself busting a move and doing the humpty hump in the car on the way to the gym tonight (yes, both on the radio in one 15 minute car ride, can you believe it?) . All I needed was Funky Cold Medina and it would have been a party.  What the?

I just feel lighter.   I feel like my life is waiting and I don’t want to miss another moment.

I have been to hell and back over this last six months and I finally feel like I have turned some sort of corner.  

I approach this new mood with cautious optimism and an open heart.

As if it were a sign or something, I heard the following four songs all in a row.  Three on random shuffle as I climbed the last brutal hill of a 45 minute treadmill session and one happened to be on when I got in the car and hit CD on the stereo.

Dare You To MoveSwitchfoot*
Unwell – Matchbox 20
Away From The Sun – 3 Doors Down
Say– John Mayer

As I drove up the hill a tear of fullness crept from my eye, brought there by John Mayer’s Say.

 “Have no fear for giving in. Have no fear for giving over. You better know that in the end it’s better to say too much that to never say what you need to say.  Even if your hands are shaking and your faith is broken.   Even as the eyes are closing.  Do it with a heart wide open.  Say what you need to say.  Say what you need to say.”

Yes, I know it’s cheesy and a little over the top.  But really, can you ignore this kind of day?
