Music and Lyrics (5)

“What is living in the now to you?” I ask.

“Just that dwelling and planning is bullshit,” he says. “You dwell on the past, you can’t move forward. Spend too much time planning for the future and you just push yourself backwards, or you stay stagnant in the same place all your life. Live in the moment, where everything is just right, take your time and limit your bad memories and you’ll get wherever it is you’re going a lot faster and with less bumps in the road along the way.”

A beautiful thought quoted from The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski. When I read this part, I just knew what the perfect song for this one is.

Living in the Moment 
by Jason Mraz
Album: Love Is a Four Letter Word

"I will not waste my days
Making up all kinds of ways
To worry about all the things
That will not happen to me

So I just let go of what I know I don't know
And I know I'll only do this by
Living in the moment"

This is a really beautiful song! It's currently my favorite, the reason why I immediately thought of it that time. And the feeling that came with it when I read that passage was so... It really made me happy. Just as the song did. And I appreciated it much more than before. The lyrics is beautiful and brilliant and the more I listen to the words, the more perfect it is for that book I'm reading and for everyone out there! 

Living our life
Easy and breezy
With peace in my mind
With peace in my heart
Peace in my soul
Wherever I'm going, I'm already home
Living in the moment

I encourage you guys to read the book and listen to this song. It's really beautiful. They both are. Then tell me what you think. Happy Wednesday! LIVE IN THE MOMENT!
