It’s summer now, no matter what the calendar says, that thin haze of a hot day toning down the green. Grass is already yellow, having barely had time to be green, it got so hot so quickly. Though today it’s about 81. Medium hot.
The construction noise is muffled, livable.
I watched this incredible singer–who calls herself Nightbirde–on twitter. She appeared on “America’s Got Talent,” a show I don’t watch. But she is utterly amazing.
Watch for yourself:
And today’s wisdom comes directly from her. Not only from her song, which is beautiful and I can’t believe isn’t already in my music, but from what she said afterward: “You can’t wait until life isn’t hard anymore before you decide to be happy.”
It’s profound, and it has that weight of universal truth about it. Unless you’re one of the incredibly lucky ones, life will always have challenges. Some, like Nightbirde’s, are harder than most.
But it’s OK to stop and just be happy, even in the midst of it, even when you don’t know how things will turn out.
And that’s it for me, have a great Wednesday.
