Overwhelmed? How does one get overwhelmed when they are living life Twenty-four hours at a time? Oh right… I haven’t been too good at that lately.
What I have been good at is dreading what I’m going to have to go through in the very near future. This is pretty asinine when you think about it because all of this dread is over what I think my near future is going to be like. I have no idea for sure what these next few weeks or month will bring and yet here I am letting myself dwell on “what ifs”.
I guess I gotta get back to basics right? I have spent a lot of time learning to hang in there and I need to start applying what I have learned to my current situation. As in right now, right this moment.
So, no more dreading tomorrow. I need to stay in the day, or the moment really. I need to remember the quote that used to get me by:
“Today, well lived, makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope”.
Yeah, that sounds about right.
Last night I went to bed with a really heavy heart. I had trouble falling asleep because I had a lot on my mind. While I was tossing and turning I made a decision that I wasn’t going to let anything keep me down. Situations are thrown at you all the time, you gotta just keep moving forward.
The first thing I heard this morning was a song on the radio when my alarm went off. The song was Float On by Modest Mouse. It put a smile on my face right away. What a great way to start your day… smiling.
So in the words of Modest Mouse:
Alright alright we’ll all float on.
Alright already we’ll all float on.
Alright don’t worry even if things end up a bit too heavy.
We’ll all float on…alright. Already we’ll all float on.
Alright already we’ll all float on, ok.
Don’t worry we’ll all float on.
Even if things get heavy, we’ll all float on.
This is my theme song today. I just need to lighten up a little. Things are a little fucked up right now but good times are on their way 🙂
