Make room

This morning I woke up, body was achy, went to the gym every day this week (=
Just as I was about to put my sneakers on, I was listening to this song my friend
forwarded me.


I stopped, put my sneakers down, reclined on the sofa I spent so much time
on during treatment. And this song just opened up a door in me that I forgot
was there.

I just closed my eyes (and I am not lying when I say I must have listened to it 20 times or so)
and let this song take me places. For the first time in a long time I longed for far away places,
you know that feeling you get right before a big trip? That's how it made me feel. The video
shows you a grey every day life and it is so much in contrast with the word of this song. I just
found it achingly beautiful. I was day dreaming before I knew it. Did a song ever do this for you?

It's nice to keep a little room for dreams and adventures to come.

It just depends on how you look at it!!!!!

I, personally, in the last 2 weeks, have been patted down 3 times, scanned 2 times, reminded to 'mind the gap' countless times, rode a bike more than drove a car, been threatened with possible deportation, and just finished baking blueberry muffins from scratch, using a recipe written in Dutch...I ALWAYS try to find an adventure in my days!!!

BIG dutch hugs, Kathi

Throughout this whole crazy journey, I made it a point to find something, just one little thing, to laugh about and that brought me joy every single day. Some days, it was quite a challenge--but those were the days I needed it the most.

Am I glad I got breast cancer--HELL no! Have there been blessings that have emerged from it--OH YES!

Hugs, Renee

Ayse... who is the artist and what is the name of the song? I know you give the link, but thought I'd ask anyhow. I will have to go online and have a listen.

When I go to the gym, I love to listen to Florence + The Machine. Her music, along with my other favorites, helps me get through my exercise routine.

Thanks for the share.

The song is by Angus and Julia Stone and is called Big Jet plane.
It inspires me to break free from the mundane. I had never heard
of this group before.
