Bring me that horizon

It’s 4:52pm on December 31st 2020 and I just started a pot, yes I said it, a pot of coffee.

I had my freshly re-written notes in preparation to start another, hopefully, dazzling piece of blogdom BUT they are now in the garbage.

See, while watching sappy Holiday movies these past few weeks, I had pen/paper beside me, jotting down the things that really made me say “YES” and was super stoked about sharing the wisdom I found there, only, once I sat down, it wasn’t what I wanted to talk about at all. So, I tossed them.

We are all waiting for this day to mean something HUGE, right!?!

We need the literal end to 2020 to literally usher in the HOPE and PROMISE in 2021, right!?!

Don’t we always need that though? Something craptastic to end so that something brand new can replace it?

I think 😉 1,000 thoughts, and probably more came and went today as I made my way through it. The seesaw of what should be (should’ve been), could be (could have been) and what will be played over and over and over again. When the door to my little Hobbit hole closed behind me, I, tearfully, realized how exhausted of it I was. Still “trying” instead of “being”…UGHhhhhhhh

What if, for the rest of the day, I didn’t take notes, didn’t make any plans, I didn’t reflect and I didn’t wish for anything…what if I’m just tired.

As soon as I sat down to say whatever came off my fingers, this song came into my head and I’ve been able to listen to it about 5 times while getting the rest of this out…and it’s the absolute cry of my heart!!!!!

Live It Well

Take the burden from my arms
Take the anchors off my lungs
Take me broken and make me one
Break the silence and make it a song

Life is short; I wanna live it well
One life, one story to tell
Life is short; I wanna live it well
And you’re the one I’m living for
Awaken all my soul
Every breath that you take is a miracle
Life is short; I wanna live it well, yeah

I wanna sing with all my heart a lifelong song
Even if some notes come out right and some come out wrong
Cause I can’t take none of that through the door
Yeah, I’m living for more than just a funeral
I wanna burn brighter than the dawn

Life is short; I wanna live it well
One life, one story to tell
Life is short; I wanna live it well
And you’re the one I’m living for
Awaken all my soul
Every breath that you take is a miracle
Life is short; I wanna live it well, yeah

I got one life and one love
I got one voice, but maybe that’s enough
Cause with one heartbeat and two hands to give
I got one shot and one life to live
One life to live, yeah
And every breath you take is a miracle

Life is short; I wanna live it well
One life, one story to tell (one love)
Life is short; I wanna live it well
And you’re the one I’m living for (the one, yeah)
Awaken all my soul
Every breath that you take is a miracle
Life is short; I wanna live it well
And you’re the one I’m living for

(One life) One life, one love
(One love) One life, one love
(One voice) One voice, yeah
(And that’s enough) And that’s enough, oh
(One heartbeat, two hands to give)
I got one shot and one life to live, one life to live

It isn’t about making it to midnight…it’s about everything that comes after it!!!!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR ya’ll!!! LIVE IT WELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
