I have been listening to this song nonstop for the past 48 hours. I brush my teeth to it, I workout to it, I work on client projects to it, I walk to the subway to it, I cook dinner to it, I read with it playing in the background.... I think I might be developing a slightly unhealthy addiction to this song. [soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/104424456" params="" width=" 100%" height="166" iframe="true" /]
So why the insane addiction? Well, it's reminding me that once we figure out what we were made to do, we light up. There is literally a glowing aura that we exude when we feel confident, comfortable, and contentment with our lives.
I want to feel this way all the time - as if I am a bright green shooting star in my life's night sky. Have you ever felt that way, friends? You feel unstoppable. Nothing can bring you down - not the snarky remarks of strangers, not spilling a coffee all over your favorite blouse, not the balance of your checking account, not the exhaustion in your bones, NOTHING. You've found a place in the universe to call your own and you feel at home. It's as if you were made from the mold of this job/task/relationship/project/apartment. And when you fit so perfectly into something, it's hard to let anyone/anything tell you differently. You feel a connection to this person/place/thing so strong that you can't stop smiling and you want to be working with it ALL THE TIME.
When we light ourselves up like this, nothing can put us out. And that's exactly what this track reminds me of - that for the first time in a long time, I feel 100% illuminated by my own brilliance. For the first time in a long time, I feel like myself.
