What life is about

You know that feeling when you’re driving and that one catchy AF song comes on. You turn the song up, way up, way way up… and you belt out the words and you do a little shimmy in your seat. The other drivers probably think that you’re crazy- but it’s your song.

You know that feeling when you’ve been at your desk for 7 hours and you’re planning to buy the necessary craft supplies for an excel voodoo doll, then your boss emails back saying “Awesome! Great work!” and you beam with joy, reconsider the voodoo doll and take a walk outside instead.

You know that feeling when you get home and then your phone rings- you took someones keys home and have to run back and return them. You get back to work and a conglomerate of students see you and thank you for whatever it was you did. It was an item on a list for you, a worry in education for them.

You know that feeling when you look outside and see the wind moving branches, and the leaves falling. It cleanses you.

You know that feeling when the kitchen counter is clean, and the house is silent.

You know that feeling when you’re at peace. You meditated, or prayed, or talked to a good friend.

You know that feeling of getting out of your head, away from the duties, drama, lists, demands- and you just breathe.

That’s what life is about, the little things. The small piece of chocolate placed on your desk. The coffee your coworker brought you. The funny memes on facebook. The sweet newborn baby pictures on instagram.

Life is so busy, hectic, chaotic, stressful, dramatic- but remember what it is about. Get out of your head. Go jump on the bed with your kids. Eat fruit roll-ups for dinner. Drive to the store for watermelon just because you want it. Remember where you came from and just breathe.

This is what life is about.

  1. Love it. My song is hey ya by outkast. I made a damn fool of myself in my car the other day and had not one eff to give about that! Also I have been known to drive around comparing watermelon prices. Great relatable list here

      1. Perhaps we were! My husband calls it watermelon watch *insert year* and then says my name like it’s a news program. “Watermelon watch! 2017! Maaanndayyy” lol. Even if I won the lotto id have to keep up this practice just to keep up my end of this weird ritual

      2. Totally. I saw something on Pinterest that said “I aspire to be the kind of financially stable that walks into a Whole Foods store and buys produce with out price checking”. And that’s basically the realest thing I’ve heard in 8 years.
