A Beautiful Day

“Beautiful Day” by Joshua Radin

Today I was looking at a video compilation and I discovered this song. It stuck with me.

Here are the lyrics:

I’m gonna wash the dust off my soul
I’m gonna listen to some rock n’ roll
No cares, come what may
I’m making a beautiful day

I’m gonna drive my car into the sea
Swim out far cause I believe that the waves will wash the gray away
I’m making a beautiful day
But let me hear you say

[Chorus:]
Oooh ooohh my my
I’m learning to fly
Hey hey what’s that you’re saying
Lets not forget we’re alive

Gonna climb that hill behind my house
See what this place is all about
Cause from above it all
You can’t help but say
It’s gonna be a beautiful day
It’s gonna be a beautiful day
But let me hear you say

[Chorus]

Gonna turn my enemies into friends
Was broken yet stronger when it mends
When we all come together this song will play
We’ll sing it’s a beautiful day
And it’s gonna be my beautiful day

[Chorus]

So recently, I’ve been focusing on trying to be present in my everyday life.  It has led me to do many things outside of my comfort zone, but one thing I learned is your day is what you make of it.  Last night I found this quote which expresses this.

“Night becomes painful for me. It brings to light the regrets of the day.” ~Grey Livingston

We should live as if we have no regrets so at night we can relax and sleep in peace knowing we’ve lived to the fullest.  The application process of this is different for everyone, but I know the reward is living a full, adventurous, passionate life.
