I love this album. It’s simple and pure and the lyrics are full of positivity and love. The songs are bursting with love. It’s exactly what I need at this very moment. And so I think you should give it a listen, and let me know if it’s what you need, too.
I’m letting myself off the hook for things I’ve done I let my past go past And now I’m having more fun I’m letting go of the thoughts That do not make me strong
I’m letting myself off the hook for things I’ve done
I let my past go
And now I’m having more fun
I’m letting go of thoughts
That do not make me strong
When I look into your eyes
It’s like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
Well there’s so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you’ve come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?
You don’t need a vacation when there’s nothing to escape from
Whether it’s your birthday or your dying day it’s a celebration to rejoice
To use your voice
And give wings
To any old choice
(I think this one is my favorite on the album)
Son in life you’re gonna go far
If you do it right you’ll love where you are
Son in life it may seem dark
But the absence of the light is a necessary part
Just know that where ever you go
No you’re never alone
You can always get back home.
It might be the end of the world in 12 months. It probably won’t be, but then again, your world might end tomorrow. This is why 2012 needs to be the year to LIVE IT UP. It’s the year to let go of all your fears, remember that child that lives inside you and enjoy your life.
So I’m assigning you a task: write out a huge long list of things to be excited about in 2012. These are things that might not happen, stuff you want to make happen or even just little things like the fact that it’ll be spring in however many days!!! I start my spring countdown on January 1st. It gets me through the winter. Plan out an awesome vacation you may or may not actually take. Find lots of pictures to look at of that destination. Read the Happiness Project and plan one for yourself.
Listen to the Counting Crows, specifically Long December on repeat until you fall asleep for an amazing nap. Don’t worry about all those extra calories you ate in December. Give the left overs away and start fresh right this moment. Forgive yourself and move on.
Think about 2011. Can you narrow it down to a few words? I think, for me, 2011 was Learning and Awareness.
Lastly, set a word for your upcoming year. I’ve narrowed mine down to: transformation, self-clarity, and love. And also Health.
I am in need of things that remind me of happiness and love today. So I’m making a list of pictures to share with you all. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I made an awesome pumpkin pie. (I’m sure we all know how much I LOOOVE pumpkin).
All of these pictures are from We Heart It. I love that site, I only just started using it again. Have an account? Friend me!
Tell me or show me some of your favourite things!
It’s officially the Christmas season! I’m so excited!
I hope you all have a great weekend!!!
