The last four days have been kind of amazing; my heart is currently filled to the brim and there is a permanent smile plastered on my stupid face. On March 31st at about 7:30PM, Sophia Julianna Perez was born. That’s right losers, I’m an aunt again and I am ecstatic about it. Now, I know that I am already an aunt to two hyperactive boys but this is different. Maybe it’s because my brother and his girlfriend are in good terms this time around, so I’ve been closer to the pregnancy. Maybe it’s because before the baby was born I made it a point to mend all the hurt feelings between my brother’s girlfriend and I. Maybe it’s because my brother’s girlfriend is the one that decided to give the baby my name as her middle name. I don’t know what it is, but my heart is holding so much happiness I can barely contain myself.
Don’t worry there will be an entire blog to come about this ball of sunshine soon.
The point is, I am seeing the greatness that this Universe has to offer and I am choosing to be happy. Things are not perfect, far from it, but things are better than they’ve ever been. I have realized that my mind is my own worst enemy; I can ruin a perfectly good day by over-thinking, second guessing and dreaming up possible scenarios. I say: NO MORE. Negative thoughts do nothing to benefit my life so the only solution is to ignore them all together. I am choosing to live in the moment, which I realize is easier said than done, but I am determined to actively work towards this.
Unfortunately living with clinical depression can make it a tad bit difficult to always be positive. Anyone that lives with a mental illness knows how difficult it can be when you’re having a bad day, however I recently have had more good days than bad days. You know what helps with the positive thinking and the good days? … Good music. Which brings me to the song of the day on this MUSIC MONDAY.
I’ve recently found myself missing Jason Mraz music, anyone else feel like it’s been 500 years since he’s released new music? I mean, I get it; he’s recently married, he’s living his best life, but I am choosing to be selfish and only think of myself and myself misses him. So I find myself constantly going back and listening to his old music and I fall in love with a new song every day.
You know what song of his ALWAYS puts me in a good mood? … “Living In The Moment” from his Love Is A Four Letter Word album.
“Living In The Moment” is the feel-good, positivity-driven, upbeat anthem that is needed at the beginning of every day.
I will not waste my days
Making up all kinds of ways
To worry about all the things
That will not happen to me
Jason Mraz is known for his feel-good anthems, so no matter the song, I’m sure it’s bound to put a positive spin on your day. Now, I get it a song doesn’t always fix a shitty day, sometimes a shitty day doesn’t get better. The point is to at least try to make it better because isn’t your happiness worth it? Also, I miss Jason Mraz.
This entire blog was basically a long winded request for Jason Mraz to release new music.
Remember to follow the blog for more music, more positivity and more Jason Mraz.
