Monday also Brought a Song

When I’m driving, I tend to listen to the radio. I like the randomness of it. So, sometimes, songs unwittingly get stuck in my head, only to pop out at the strangest times. This morning, I’ve had a┬ásong by Taylor Swift (featuring Ed Sheeran) in my head. What I do then is stick the song on YouTube and listen as I work. I don’t really look at the videos. But today, someone came to my desk while I was listening, so I paused the song, and when I returned to it, for some reason I looked at the scene.

And it was exactly what I needed to see. Check it out at 1:25. The little kids taking time out just to be. I’ve steadily been becoming more overwhelmed by my life the last few weeks. I have so many things I want to do and have been surprised and confounded and happy and … brave. I should really just slow the hell down. So yes, just going to do that. Stand on one leg like a flamingo and do that for a while.

Which makes me think that flamingoes are probably on to something. You can’t take on too much and keep your balance while standing on one leg. ­čÖé
